Tonight I stood front row and watched my favorite band of all time play a ten year reunion tour. I have no voice now. My feet ache. My knees will definitely hate me come morning. But every bit of it was worth it.
We get so wrapped up in the busyness of life, that we forget to slow down and enjoy life. I'm just as guilty as the next person. I have a whole slew of things I could have worked on tonight that need to get done soon. But I decided they could all wait.
Tonight was exactly what I needed. I sang my heart out. I danced. I got winked at by my true love (Matthew Theissen of Relient K, if you were wondering). I took a selfie with Dave Douglas. I sang songs that I swear to this day ten years later were written about my life. Seriously, if you have never checked out Mmhmm by Relient K, stop what you're doing right now and listen to it. I mean it. Get on it.
But in all seriousness, take time today to just enjoy life. Put your phone down. Shut your laptop. Do something meaningful and memorable. Life is too short to waste.
As always you can keep up with me over at ohhaiiitsbrandii.wordpress.com
Until next time,
