Live your love. Simple, no? Live doing what you love. Simple words, and yet one of the hardest things to do, no? We all have responsibilities, bills, etc., and they all seem to go against this simple idea of trying to do what we love to do! The nerve!! (Coughs)
What if, however, we tried “living our love” in small chucks at a time. We don’t really need careers that we love doing, as long as we make money that will allow us to do the things we really love to do when we aren’t working. Man, that’s a mouthful, but I think you get my drift. Be happy to live your love when and where you can, in other words.
I’ve got some friends who are in Memphis right now competing in the International Blues Competition, representing Washington. Huge honor and opportunity for these cats and they get to live their love! How cool is that, a week of not only playing blues, but listening to bands from around the world representing their take on the genre. Way cool. Day jobs be damned, for a week they are living the dream.
We need to find our own grooves and then dance to them every chance we get. Life is just too short not to live your love.
