I was lucky enough to have two invites to live performances the same week. One was a friend’s husband brass band and the other a play to mark an anniversary in our city. I went into them feeling tired as both were on a work night, but soon I was energized by the performances.
There has always been something about a live performance that feeds my soul. For me there is an energy from the performers that radiates off them. I feel it and am lifted and energized myself. I am no longer tired but fully present.
Maybe it is watching people doing what they love and offering it out there. Whatever it is I always feel privileged to be in their presence and have the opportunity. Live performances feed my soul and recognizing this I take advantage of them whenever I can.
Listen and pay attention to what feeds your soul. You never know what type of package it could come in. I am lucky it comes in such a diverse one!
PS I used the clarinet shot as that is what my friend’s husband played during the concert.
You can always start now!
