Thank god for creative expression.
These few weeks have been challenging on my heart and I’m so thankful that I know how to channel the negative energy, anger and frustration into my music, using those emotions to sing the shit out of songs on stage. And after I release this storm of emotions, I’m calm and clear headed again. It wasn’t an easy transformation to being an emotive performer, but now that I’m here, theres no turning back, not even half way. Singing through my anxiety, pain, anger, joy and happiness is a tool that now I simply could not live without.
I think about people who don’t have an outlet to express. What must that be like? Like a soda bottle of emotions fizzing up and ready to explode but the lid screwed on tight. It just can’t be healthy for us to hold in our emotions like that. It would manifest poison into the body which would bleed into every aspect of our live.
So if you haven’t found your outlet yet, start looking today. Music, art, crafts, writing, exercising, meditating, dancing, whatever it is, you NEED something. Negative energy is not worth holding on to. And people who serve that up to you need to be let go. Distance yourself from the poison and you will live a happier life.
Unfortunately sometimes in order to do that we have to distance ourselves from people we love. And that is one of the hardest things in life.
I’m so grateful for the ability to express.
