How was your Memorial Day? Let me tell you about mine…while ALL of my friends were either at a pool party or on a boat with their flippy floppies, I was with Marissa doing 6 hours of defensive driving. We picked the “comedy” one, which, turns out, isn’t all that funny.
Around hour 1:30 we were on the BAC part. All that talk about alcohol in the bloodstream made us thirsty, so we cracked open a bottle of wine and had polished off two bottles by the time our sessions were wrapping up. We then had to take brief naps after such a strenuous day of
We had plans to see Bob Schneider at Saxon Pub (his regular night there, btw) and so gulped down some coffee and hopped on over to the pub. I’ve been a big fan of Bobby for years, but have never seen him live. Since 2012 is my year of music, I was more than happy to make my Monday night about him. I hear he’s an asshole, but damn, everything inside me goes still when he sings. His lyrics, his musical diversity, his scruffy good looks and hair I want to gently tug…well, it was a good show.
I’m in Austin all week and we have debauchery planned almost every single minute – as is our usual style. May has been “Me Month”, and I’m going out with a bang for my last week by doing everything and anything that I want. Which I guess has been my attitude all month, but now I get to do it in a different city 🙂
This has been a little meditation experiment I decided to conduct and the timing seemed right too considering I started May 1 (May Day), traditionally a celebration of new beginnings. So, in a nutshell, I’ve done exactly what I want, every single day, all month. May is rapidly coming to a close (sad), and some pretty interesting things have developed because of this. The most important thing that I’ve confirmed is how important it is to make myself happy first, before anyone else. To find MY joy, MY peace, MY freedom. Only then am I whole and complete and able to give to others. It’s amazing the amount of clarity, creativity and happiness that has been packed into these 30 days. More than in the last 6 months.
The energy’s a movin’ folks – I’m expecting amazing adventures this year. Maybe I’ll write more about this later. I’ll see if I feel like it. 🙂
