week 30: try

You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing

This week's track was 100% less emotional to deal with than last week's because this week I bought a backing track instead of recording accompaniment so I just had to focus on the vocals!

This week was the last week of my church's women's group, which has made such an impact on me these past two years, especially since graduating high school and choosing not to go to college. I feel very loved and supported by the incredible women in my small group, wives and moms who I pull and pull from every week, learning from their experiences and wisdom, and I wanted to dedicate this week's track to them.

This is a song we've listened to together and something we talk about a lot: not comparing ourselves to others, not feeling the need to show only our perfectly curated moments but rather showing our authentic living, whatever that looks like. We really don't have to try so hard.

The song is Try by Colbie Caillat
vocals by myself
