December 2009 #ThrowbackThursday

December 2009. Judging in good faith.

This was one of my first judging gigs. You see that stage behind me? I was in this exact singing competition just four years earlier. It's crazy how much can change in time. Whatever your heart is set on, know that the journey isn't as long as you think it is. And one day you'll look back and see that at every step of the way, you were exactly where you were meant to be. <3
