If you were to write a love letter to your voice, what would you say?
Writing this was emotional, hard and what my voice and I needed, to connect even more so.
As a young singer – it was very easy to over identify with my voice. To judge it as ‘not good enough’. Whatever that meant to me at the time and whatever that means to me now. It’s a belief that lingered for too long… and I know I am not the only one who’s believed in this belief.
After reading “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield. It occurred to me, that I was over identifying with my voice. Allowing the noise in my head, the critical part of me to attach mean and false beliefs to it.
I had to make a choice. It felt freeing to know I had a choice. I could take a step back and acknowledge my voice as an extension of who I am. A part of me that is trying it’s hardest to be there for me. Showing up for me. Allowing me to be, to see and acknowledge it’s true essence. Allowing me to connect with my voice on a deeper level and to offer it the compassion it needs to be free.
Everyone’s love letter is different. If you feel called to write a love letter to your voice. What would you want to say?
