We hold ourselves back in ways both big and small, by lacking self confidence…

“We hold ourselves back in ways both big and small, by lacking self confidence, by not raising our hands, and by pulling back when we should be leaning in.” Sheryl Sandberg

I absolutely loved Sheryl Sandberg’s book ‘Lean In.’ It was very eye opening for me. I know it was controversial for some people as well. She has also said, “If you do please everyone, you are not making enough progress.” I believe there is a movement happening with young girls. There is a dialogue about feminism, equal pay, and leaning in together. I want to be part of that movement with my music. I wrote a song called “Mouth Wide Open” It’s about saying exactly what you want as a woman. The lyric suggests a sexual connotation because maybe that’s how some men view women only as sexual beings and not intelligent business minded creatures. I have to say that we are all those things. I have been trying to unlearn the things that society and my southern “nice girl’ surroundings have put upon me. Here are the lyrics to the pre-chorus of the song which maybe my favorite part.

“So come here boy cause I’ve got a little secret, Somethings on my mind and I think you really need it My Lips, My throat will make a brand new sound And with just my words I’m gonna take you down”
