My father passed away, and I had spent the last 13 years traveling with him for work. Not only did I lose my dad, who was one of my best friends, but I lost my sense of purpose in the process. I let myself be sad for a little while and then decided I had to start again, for myself but also for my dad.

I reset my outlook on life and what I wanted out of it.

I decided to start singing again, which is what my career was before my dad passed away. Slowly doing small gigs and then I started to write songs again as well. I decided to do only what makes me happy, life is short and I didn’t want to live anyone else’s life. I decided that I would give more of myself when I had free time, volunteer, help a friend in need, whatever it was — it made me feel good and I wanted to feel good. That is how I started my reset.
