August 8, 2021
Spent the weekend at Seinäjoki playing at a small music festival called Summerdance. These kinds of events feel especially nice nowadays as I get so many compliments from people I haven't met in a long time about my noticeably better physique. "Dude, you've lost weight, you look great" feels pretty good after literally months of working at it :)
I also had some deeper conversations with friends I get to see only a few times a year. They all told me that I seemed to be in a better place mentally as well -- which is totally true. You don't think about these things that much yourself and you don't notice the small daily changes, but it does feel really good when you hear it from good friends. (I'm not one of those people who live off of compliments from others nor do I seek continuous validation from strangers. But I've been in not-so-bright places mentally in recent years so getting confirmation that better times are ahead is great indeed!)
Getting to play to a live crowd after such a long time was, of course, super fun as well!
