Oie Vey. What a week. Two weeks, really. I honestly don’t even know where or how to focus this post – other than just a smattering mind dump of some of the recent happenings that have gone on. I’m feeling really… wonderful. Energized, happy, full of life and spirit. I could still be running off the night of few-too-many cocktails I had last night. But hey, that’s better than the opposite next day effect.
I’ve been lacking in both time, focus and desire to be at the blog, so with the help of Meg, I’m just going to list out whatever I’m reflecting upon in this past week of mine.
I just got home from seeing this show, so between the good feelings of my week and the enhanced emotions from the musical, I’m feeling real full of happiness.
The effect that both my Dad and my passion for performing has on me is like magic. Both things energize me – like natural caffeine. They have this ability to take away the fears, anxieties, stresses, worries, urges and self disciplines I so constantly live with. When I am performing or I’m with my Dad, those thoughts and anxieties still arise – they are still there – but they have more willingness to melt away. I eat better. I eat more freely. I nap. I’m flexible with plans. I let go of thoughts and make the best choices for taking care of myself. I’m happy. I wish there weren’t still those flints of guilt, but I think I have to accept that those flints may be here for a long time yet. So, if I can at least learn to welcome them but then say a little, “but I’m not going to listen to you,” then at least that is livable.
So now the performance is done and my Dad leaves in the morning. I’m still learning to garner these feelings of happiness and comfort for myself, so I will work to hold on to these feelings of magic as long as I can. And yes I’m in my late twenties and am talking about my Dad like I’m 8 years old. But I don’t care. You’re never too old to revel in kid-parent time.What makes you happy?
