You guys.

I am so in love with Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats. You probably know them because of the song S.O.B. but I NEED you to know that the rest of the album is so, so, SO good. It was released last summer and it has been heavy in my rotation for the past year. You all know that I am a big fan of the repeat button, so this probably doesn’t come as a surprise. BUT. This album? It speaks to me on so many levels. It often feels like the music is reaching straight into my chest and soothing all of my hurts. It’s THAT good.

Last night I saw them live and I was giddy the whole time. They are incredible musicians and they brought down the house. So much dancing, so many wide smiles. It was the perfect start to my birthday week. I left feeling on top of the world.

This morning I don’t feel any differently. I feel energized and alive. I feel like anything is possible and that the things that I have been longing for are just around the corner. This feeling only comes to me every so often but it is often after an amazing live show. Seeing music that I love performed live awakens me in ways that nothing else can.

This show was right on time. I’ve been struggling with my upcoming birthday. Struggling with how different my life has turned out, how differently I had imagined things to be for myself. I’m certainly not complaining about what I have. I am grateful and I know how fortunate I am to have the things that I do. And the people that I have in my life? Gosh, they are the best. I am the luckiest when it comes to my support network. I know this. I KNOW this.

However, it is also so hard to long for something that I have no control over. I can tackle all of the problems that come my way and overcome them like a motherfucking champ. I continue to focus on self care and personal growth. I believe so strongly that all of the hard work I’m doing is raising my vibrational energy. I’m working on patience. I really am. It’s just so hard to wait sometimes.

I am committed to attracting only the best of the best.

I am so grateful for last night. I needed to fill up my faith and wonder. I needed this feeling that I’m on the right path. That I need to stop and look around and appreciate the view. If I hurry I’ll miss all of this. I’ll miss the delicious feelings that I’m feeling.

Today holds incredible tunes in my head, love in my heart, warmth in my bones and kindness in my eyes.
