Celebrate!

I went to see Glee The 3D Live In Concert Movie for the 3rd time in two days. Although I did go too early today and accidentally saw the last half hour of the previous showing aswell. You’re probably bored of me saying this but there is something special about Glee that stands apart from anything I’ve seen and it inspires me. It is about acceptance, about being different and embracing that difference, about peeling back the mask and shining from within.

After watching the concert movie three times now it still manages to give me goosebumps and I still tear up at my favourite parts. It brings me back to the concerts, standing amoung people like me, other rejects, misfits, losers, and freaks, people who also saw themselves on this show and realized their worth. And when all these people are brought together to celebrate their uniqueness, to celebrate not being alone, I can tell you it’s pretty powerful.

Yesterday two little girls were sitting close to me, very excited  waiting for the movie to begin. They turned to me and asked me three simple questions that left a pretty big impression. First one was: “What’s your passion?!” the second one was “What’s your dream house?” and the third one was “What’s your dream job?!”

Out of the mouth of babes, these ten year olds got straight to the point, and asked questions we should all be asking eachother and more importantly asking ourselves. You can learn so much about a person just by those innocent queries.

We all get so stuck in the little details and dramas of life that we lose focus of what we we want out of life, how we want to spend life and who we want to be in this life. It’s a very revealing exercise and I urge you all to do it. Cut through the crap, what’s your passion? What’s your dream house? And what’s your dream job?
If you want to really know someone you’ll find them in the answers and if you want to find yourself  these answers will be your path.

I highly recommend going to see glee the movie. If you want an example of what can happen when you follow your passion, when you find yourself and what an impact your light can make on the world, go watch the movie. Today there were three other people in the theatre; a mom, her daughter and the child’s friend, and the mom asked me ‘The girls want to dance and sing along, would you mind?’ and I replied ‘No! Please do!!!!’ so we celebrated together. And when we got to the song Born This Way, and I heard these little girls singing the lyrics my heart soared.

So I’ll be watching, why don’t you come join me, I’d love to share it with you and celebrate with you too!
In the meantime keep dreaming and never stop believing!

“My mama told me when I was young

We are all born superstars

She rolled my hair, put my lipstick on

In the glass of her boudoir

There’s nothing wrong with loving who you are

She said, Cause he made you perfect babe,

So hold your head up girl and you’ll go far

Listen to me when I say

I’m beautiful in my way……….

    I love when I see my love for Glee mirrored in others – I can’t fully explain it to those who don’t get it but it fills something in me and leaves me with a smile and sometimes tears but it always touches me in some way. I still haven’t seen the concert movie because it’s not out yet but even just watching the videos and pictures I took from Dublin I get chills – hell I get chills when I watch the episodes and hear or see certain scenes…I’m still trying to pinpoint what it is that makes it so special to me – after all it’s a tv show like so many others but that’s just it…it’s not…it’s so much more…
