  • here’s one of my favorite stories from @bradley_knisley 💙 what are you saying “bye,_______.” to?
•••
i am moving to TEXAS. (in two weeks)

fear of the unknown. 
a couple of months back i attended the goodbye, sad girl party. that one of my dear friends, @iamhollyn put on. she stepped out and offered vulnerability and so many others followed, it was truly so inspiring.

when asked to write what i was saying goodbye to, i immediately wrote fear of the unknown without even thinking about it. it just came to me. at the moment i resonated fear with just general unknowns in my life. where i was going to be. what i was going to be doing. what god had for me. i just didn’t have a great idea and sometimes found myself becoming anxious.

i was presented with a job opportunity in Dallas, Texas doing anything and everything I want to be doing with video and ministry. i couldn’t turn it down and felt so much peace after being there. 
i have every reason to be fearful. I am moving to a completely different state, where I don’t know anyone, leaving my friends, my community, my family and totally uprooting my life. 
but I feel that’s where god is calling me to go, so that is what I’m going to chase. i always will.

so here is me saying goodbye to fear of the unknown. You won’t control my life anymore.

here’s to the unknown and all of the adventure that will come with it 👊🏻

  • “i don’t know if we can be friends” is the second song of six from my project “bye, sad girl.” this song capsules the feeling of that moment when you realize enough is enough. ⁣
⁣
stress is holding it all together.⁣
it all has become so familiar, it feels normal, like this is the new reality. ⁣
the stress of trying to please one another, when really, neither of us knew what we wanted from the other...⁣
the miscommunication & confusion made me look up and realize, this was the breaking point. ⁣
if i don’t say something now, i never will. ⁣
the emotion of this song is complete distress, questioning, and confessing my feelings of deprivation and hopelessness of saving anything i had built. ⁣
the level of anxiety that had imploded in me led me to the point of not even wanting to be friends with this person. ⁣
any form of tolerance i had, was now gone. ⁣
what you're about to hear is the wrestle of trying to understand... that not even a friendship can be saved between the two of us. #byesadgirl

  • this is a photo from a few years ago, both new to nashville and being goofs 😂 i’ve known @tommeeprofitt for a while now, and every time we write together it’s an absolute laugh fest :)))
•
the day we wrote “i don’t know if we can be friends” it was supposed to be pitched to another artist... after we wrote it i was so sad because i loved it so much. it described a huge part of my story & i hated to see it go. so.... after months of texting him asking “has anyone taken this song yet?!” we decided i should record it and use it for “bye, sad girl.”
•
tommee is a genius producer and writer... he can do any genre justice, encourage his friends by coming alongside of them (both creatively and life in general), his talent is absolutely ridiculous and his joy is contagious!!! also his family is gorgeous 😭😭😭 •
tommee, thank you for being my friend, creating music, and inspiring us all to dig into our passion!! you’re one of the greats - because of your heart and the way you’re leading people!!! thank you for your genuine spirit. i’m a big fan if you can’t tell!!
<3 your friend hollyn
