Well so far this tour has been pretty grueling. Relentless driving, low turnouts, less money overall than last year. Exhaustion. A different bed every night, none of them my own. The first night out we stayed with a lovely couple, one of whom was a doctor. She said our lives seem so hard and that she could never do what we do. Yet she made it through medical school. I don’t think I could have done that.
Unless it was my thing. If it’s your thing, it’s amazing how the energy you need rises up when you need it most. Despite all the hardships of being on the road, I feel alive when I am out here singing my songs. It makes my soul grow. Parts of it are exhausting, but then I rest. And I sing. And the singing gives me more energy than I spend.
There is a feeling that I am truly living my life. The expansiveness of that replenishes me.
If you are doing that which you were meant to do, it doesn’t matter if it’s hard. You’ll barely notice. All you’ll notice is that you are becoming the person you always wanted to be.
What makes you feel this way?
