You know how they say: “Fake it until you make it”. This has been my motto for a couple of years.
Hi. I’m Nadia Kodes. I live in the imaginary world, where I’m already a star, conquering huge arenas and making thousands of people happy. While walking down the street, I imagine walking on a red carpet. I “see” fans and journalists around me, they make me smile. Then I ask myself questions as if it’s an interview. This is my life. Is it bad? Am I insane? I’ve asked this question a million times. And the answer is no, I’m not. Faith has an incredible power: if you believe in something then it is real to you.
When I was younger, I thought every person had a dream. Having grown up, I’ve realised how wrong I was. Now I meet a lot of people who are like: “I kinda envy you cause you have a dream”. It turns out that most people just don’t. How can you be happy and fulfilled if you don’t know what you want? Create a dream. Search for it. Set yourself even a tiny goal. I used to dream about becoming a “world star”. But it seems an impossible request to the Universe. “Becoming a world star” means nothing, you have to be concrete, you have to know the details. Now I have a very clear goal and I’ve never felt so good and relaxed. Autumn seems beautiful (and I never liked it), every little thing is magnificent...
Suddenly a song comes to my mind. A song I wrote a few years ago when I felt quite miserable. It’s called “Music for no one”. The opening line is “I’m so tired of chasing success”. Well, I’m not anymore. I’m enjoying life. Then you hear the chorus: “How many years will it take? Do I have to wait a lifetime? Anyway I know my music is for no one”. Tragic, isn’t it? You don’t have to wait a lifetime, it’s called “living and doing what you love”. And whoever listens to my music should know: it’s for you.
My new EP is called “The Underground”. I dedicate it to all the people who’ve suffered depression, felt empty and worthless. "With love you have to try again, You know I’ll always be your friend".
