Hey guys! Hope everyone has been well and you're all having a good day!
I have always had a great love for music. As a kid, Dad would ALWAYS make us listen to music and sing along in the car but it wasn't until high school that my love of music would grow. I would listen to the same bands, the same albums, day, after day and the music would start to mean something to me alot more then just noise. These artists would shape alot of my views, My positive attitude and their lyrics were meaningful and relevant to what we would all go through as a young kid, this was trying to make it and find our place at school and in life. Fast forward to today this still holds true and has helped me alot when i was first diagnosed and any bad day since.
I could go on for ages but I have been to that many gigs over the last 8 years that Ive lost count. I would walk into these concerts at times a little stressed and walk out feeling on top of the world, A new person. It was a place I could forget about all my troubles and any bad feelings i had for a few hours and just enjoy and appreciate what was in front of me. What happened in Manchester the other day really makes me sad. These girls, These boys, walk into a arena, Wanting to forget about everything bad happening in their life and just lose them selves in the music and escape for a few hours. Thousands are now scared for life, While others didnt even make it home to their parents. Heartbreaking.
This world is filled with alot of hate and people want you to be scared in times like these and want you to feel fear. Forget about all that, it makes you release life is beautiful, Enjoy it and do what you love. Appreciate those close to you and let them know you love them. Life is to short to let a few isolated acts worry and limit what you do. And as I've always said, It's okay to have bad days, or bad weeks, even bad months or years. Those brave faces and tough times show your real strength and courage and that's when you learn the most about yourself. Stay strong, peace! 💪 ☮️
