Mental health day. It's a crazy thing. Our mind and mental state can do wonders. It can bring us up, and tear us down. It builds walls so strong and thick we can't even remember what the other side looks like anymore.
But I want you to know, that it's ok. It's ok to not be ok. It's ok to feel like the world is falling apart. You'll be ok. The world may be falling apart, but what forms through the dust can be invigorating. It brings new life, a fresh start. It's terrifying. It really is.
This year alone has been interesting to say the least. It's the best I've felt in a very long time. I graduated 2 summers ago. I have two steady jobs, I'm starting to get a consistent and rotating list of gigs. I'm getting calls back and being asked to play for people. I finally feel like I'm making a small dent in this vast musical world. I've made some wonderful friends. I've lost some. Both good people and toxic but I still wish them nothing but the best and hope they find happiness as well.
This picture is my happy place. It gives me sanity. It unleashes my anger. It's my crazy monstrosity and I love it. So much. It keeps me going.
I love you all. Ya crazy Instagram family you. I hope you're all doing alright.
