Why I was burned at the stake

When I go see live music it fills my life battery to the max. I know after a show or festival (after I’ve slept a lot)  I feel inspired and renewed from the experience.

If you love live music as much as I do then you know that going to shows is just as important for your health and well-being as eating a healthy diet, exercising and having a meditation practice.  
In the past I didn’t have a clue on how to bring that festival feeling that we all chase all over the country into my daily life. I know it’s not possible to feel as high as when the lights go down the moment before your favorite band plays their first note all the time. But, what if it was possible to feel even a small percentage of that way even for a moment on a daily basis? When I was home I couldn’t access that feeling and I felt sad, tired and out of alignment.
The real me was aching to come out and play and she couldn’t wait until the next show.

So I did what any responsible adult would do. I let the real me

out to play. At first I did it in small ways like wearing tie dyed underwear to work. Once I realized that I was still alive, I got even more brave.

I’m pretty sure most and of my friends and I were witches in our past lives and were persecuted or even killed for just being who we were. Even though I know it’s safe in this lifetime to be me, the fear is still within me. And I’m not fearless. I feel the fear every single day, but I act the way I want anyway even though sometimes it scares the sparkles out of me.

The more I let my real self out, the more I crowded out what wasn’t in the best interest of who I really was. I lost jobs, friends and one of my boyfriend broke up with me. But I what I gained was soooooo worth the risk.

So…this weekend what are you doing to fill your life battery?

Are you going to a show? Are you going to wear tie dye underwear? Are you going to hug a stranger? (asking them first of course)
