Ever been to a great concert, fun party, or huge festival, full of good, positive energy?
Most of us cherish those feelings. Just joyful people, smiling, walking around, celebrating, laughing, and having a great time. Up until 2020, I think everyone took that for granted, until it was gone. Dark times make you appreciate the light.
The weekend before last, two big festivals happened in my town, and there was another one this past weekend. I was working at one of them as a vendor, and the other one, I just went and enjoyed it on my own, but both times were just tons of fun.
The day after the event was over I went back down to the park. It was empty, the tents and vendors had cleared out, the bands had long quit playing and packed up, and the crowds were gone. But yet, somehow I still felt the afterglow, the good energy, and the positivity lingering in that space. I think we should strive to carry these kind of feelings with us, even if we can't stay there forever. Remember the positive joyful feelings that linger in joyful places, and keep a piece of it inside us if we can.
