I am obsessed with live music. You might even say I have a music addiction.
When I’m at a live music show I experience so much joy.
I let loose and dance my heart out like everyone’s watching, but I don’t care. I surround myself with new and old friends. I can be found in the crowd yelling “woo,” fist pumping, spinning in circles, performing high kicks, busting out the running man, bopping my head, dressed head to toe in sparkles and feathers while giving and receiving as many hugs as I possibly can. I smile so much my face muscles feel sore the next day.
I feel at home when I’m at a show and step into my true authentic happy self.
So many people have shared with me they feel that same joy when at a show, but when they’re back home the joy goes away. And it’s not just the fans, but the musicians too. I know this because I’ve asked them about it and they’ve shared how hard it is for them when they’re off the road. I totally get it and have felt that way too. It’s called, “post-show blues,” and it sucks.
Take two of those and call me in the morning:)
I started to bring everything I learned from the feelings I experienced at a live music show into my everyday life, and I’m so excited to share those ideas with you and it doesn’t matter if you like music or not.
The thing is, I know you want to be happy.
Not the kind of happy where you say one thing, but do something else. Not putting on the dress you know you doesn’t fit right, and telling yourself you look hot anyway. Not the kind of happy that wears a mask to hide what’s really going on underneath it.
I’m talking about the real stuff.
I’m talking about being unable to control the urge to jump out of your bed to start your day, strutting your fine ass down the street, shining so bright everyone can’t help but notice, and smiling with your entire body kind of joy addict stuff.
I created my best program yet with this in mind.
Imagine feeling as good as you do doing the thing you love most of the time.
It’s possible and I would love to support you to get there. Your life is good…it’s time to make it great. The Rock Your Life Mastermind starts November 15th and spaces or filling up fast.
Where do you feel the most joy and how can you add some of that into your everyday life? I would love to hear from you. Join the conversation at the bottom of this blog.
A Michael Franti show is so much more than just a show. It’s an experience that will change your life for the better, forever. I learned so much about life from Michael Franti, but here are six lessons that stood out:
1. Be you in all your glory.
“All the freaky people make the beauty of the world.” Michael is 6’6’’ tall, rarely wears shoes and was adopted. He embraces every bit of himself, and instead of hiding read more on MindBodyGreen.
I think you rock!
Love and light,
