Return to the Source of Joy

25 years ago, my cousin Matt & I saw The Monkees in concert. We became obsessed!  We sang their songs in performances we created for our family. We used my Dad's video camera to recreate scenes from the TV show. 

Last night, we saw The Monkees perform again, in the same venue we first experienced them when we were 14. 

It's rare that you have the opportunity to feel exactly the way you did when you were young, but it happened to me last night. I remembered the joy of being young, acting silly, & sharing fun with friends. And the past gave me fuel for the future. 

If you are feeling tired or a little lost, I recommend going back to the places that inspired you as a kid. You may rediscover the light you need for the journey ahead.
