In this episode of APTV’s Note To Self, members of The Word Alive talk about their passion for making music, and what advice they’d give to their younger selves.

“Enjoy life as it’s coming at you, and [don’t] overthink all the little things because none of those things will really matter,” says singer Telle Smith. “If someone doesn’t believe in you or doesn’t think you’re good enough, that person probably is just dealing with their own insecurities and issues.”

Guitarist Zack Hansen says he’d want to tell his younger self to slow things down. “Everyone ends up where they’re supposed to be in some weird shape or form,” he says. “Maybe take things a little slower, take my time a little bit more. I wanted to speed through everything to get to the final prize, which I’m still not even at.”
