When the stresses of life get you down....

Posted by EricBluegrassFiddle on Thursday, December 4, 2014

Go hide your head in a hole....


No just kidding...even though my heart is weighed down, I run to my fiddle every day for some practicer and solace to constructively vent my frustrations about every day life.... It's been difficult lately, lot's of big decisions, added work and stress on the job, the in-laws are upset were returning to the US.....added all together it's a bit of a bummer....but hey, I'm living and doing the "life thing" right?


Does anyone else run to the fiddle when things get busy and iffy?

If I'm supposed to be doing something about my dilemma, the fiddle can be very uncooperative. Eventually, I'm driven to go do what I was supposed to have been doing. Sometimes, though, when the tempest grips me, the resonance of the fiddle through my jaw becomes a conduit. I wish I could do that on demand.

During times of sadness I play the old gospel songs, if I'm angry it's the fast ones. Don't let life get you down, with your faith you know who to run to :) As my dad always said "Keep your eyes on the final prize"

Keeping our eyes on the author and finisher of our faith.....Jesus!

Playing is definitely good for my head, but when I get anxious or frazzled, first I remember how grateful I am to have air in my lungs. Sort of puts other stuff in perspective. I also do basic mindfulness meditation each morning when I wake up. Helps with putting distractions aside.
