Happy 21st Birthday, David!

It’s amazing to me that I’ve been following the same person since he was 17, and here he is at the ripe old age of… 21!!! Wow!

And to think this young man starred in a reality TV competition show, debuted a single in the Hot 100, delivered a gold album, authored a bestselling memoir, recorded a Christmas album, headlined several concerts, and then walked away from a major label.

And he did all that before he planned to serve on a mission as a good little Mormon boy. 🙂

What can I say? If David can do so much in such a short period of time, imagine how much more he has to offer – whether on a religious mission or when he returns full time to a music career.  He’s still so young, and in case anyone ever wonders about that, let me repeat: 21 is STILL YOUNG!

There is no “quitting” or “giving up” yet. He’s still proving himself, and I continue to be impressed with the way he digs deep and follows his inner Voice and then blows the rest of us away with the external one.

Happy Birthday, David! May you be blessed this special day, and I hope you have a great big birthday dinner (with all your favorite foods), and since you will “continue to drink water,” I plan on raising a glass to you personally as I celebrate your 21st birthday for you (although I doubt I will get drunk the way I did when I turned 21 myself – haha!).
