Small Steps

I know I’m completely putting myself out there by doing this, and maybe I’ve lost my mind, but I wanted to share this song with you that I wrote years ago.  It’s called Small Steps and considering how I’ve been feeling lately, and talking about needing to take those small steps forward everyday, it seemed appropriate to share this with you.  Keep in mind I’ve never claimed to be the world’s best singer or guitar player.  And I’m sorry in advance for the awful recording quality.  I don’t have microphones or fancy equipment, just my computer.

Before I share the video, a little background about this song.  I wrote it when I was 19 and in college.  A lot had happened in my life at that time.  Within one year I had moved out, started college which I never thought I would do, got accepted into college, had my first boyfriend, and most importantly had gone from an out-of-control 18 year old to a more-in-control 19 year old and that all had to do with finally getting diagnosed with severe anxiety and depression and finally getting on medication.  When I wrote this song I was reflecting on that past year in my life, where I made a lot of mistakes, but also made a lot of growth, and I was amazed at how far I had come in a year.

Out of everything I’ve ever written, this song always sticks with it.  It’s as relevant to me then as it is now.  The message might change for me, the meaning behind the words, but no matter what, it still means something to me because every year, through small steps, I continue to grow and change and become a better, healthier me.

Below the video I will include the lyrics.  Anyhow, sorry again in advance for my singing, playing, video quality.  This is just me being me and yes, putting myself out there.  But, this is all part of my M.U.D. life and I wanted to share it.  I hope you can find some meaning in it too.

Small Steps

It’s only been a year

It’s only one step

It’s taken some time

To come this far

This far

Small steps in the right direction

Small steps towards a goal

It’s only been a year

It’s only one step

New progress

Old fears

Small steps through the years

Believing past is gone

New progress

Old fears

Hour by hour, day by day

Small steps through the years

Small steps

For anyone who is interested, the guitar I am playing is made by Daisy Rock.  It’s such a wonderful company that makes guitars for girls/women.  Out of all the guitars I’ve owned throughout the years, I love this one the most because it has a small body, is lightweight, and is easy for me to play.
