Well, Hi! I’m your host Chelsea Jyles and welcome to my blog!!! (*The crowd goes wild*) Not really, but this is so exciting. I’m absolutely ecstatic that you’ve come across my page.
It might be totally obvious, but this is my very first blog post! Although I talk about my feelings ALL the time – in vlogs, in songs, telling anyone who will listen – I have never put my stories in writing. My main hope in talking to you directly is to inspire someone who is going through something I’ve gone through.
Someone who so badly wants to follow their dream but doesn’t know how. Someone who can’t decide what to do with their life. Someone who lacks a bit of confidence and is a little shy. Someone who is struggling with friends. Someone who’s been told ‘no’ a hundred bazillion times. Someone who is just really sensitive. Someone who thinks no one believes in them. Someone who is struggling with depression.
There’s a whole lot of stuff we can cover. I just want to tell you my stories incase they can help you, or inspire you, or maybe I can make you laugh and put a smile on your face, or maybe it’ll be interesting enough to distract you for a minute. And if I can feel a bit better about what I’m feeling by writing about it, then that’s just a bonus.
I’ve been through a lot in my time. And I’m not even that old. I do feel old though. I feel like I was 15 yesterday (I definitely was NOT!) and suddenly its 2017. As much as I feel like I’ve done a lot since I graduated high school, I actually haven’t. I’ve tried to. But everything has seemed to fail. I keep trying to find the thing that’s ‘meant to be’ but I don’t know if I have yet. As much as I want ‘meant to be’ to be me embarking on a world wide arena tour in support of my multi platinum selling Billboard No.1 album, I don’t think it is anymore.
Since the day I left high school, and left behind crappyness (Is that a a word? I’m not sure) I had managed to accumulate, everyday has been about making my dream come true. I went to a music academy, I’ve recorded songs with pretty much every producer in Australia, I even moved to LA last year for 3 months. And nothing. I feel like I’ve actually taken steps back. We will get into all the details, but all in good time.
I’m just here trying to figure out what’s next for me, and I thought I would bring you along on the journey. Maybe we can figure our lives out together.
Can’t wait to chat some more! ❤ Chels
