The 2016 Life is Beautiful festival is over.
I’ve cut my wrist band off and am finally beginning to achieve that sought after feeling: rest.
From learning about the acceptance of death to the widespread power of kind acts to the future of city planning.
My heart and mind instantly latched onto the talk of Dr. Kate Stone. The future is here and it’s not hover boards or space flight, its connectivity through the possibility of creativity through interaction.
Warpaint played a mellow but intriguing show on the Huntridge stage, allowing me space to breathe and soak in their music amongst a smaller but enthralled crowd.
Life, to sound completely obvious, is about living. Remind yourself that death is real (we all succumb to it) but use it as a reminder to live fully.
Follow your passion, follow creativity. Do not be afraid to take risks and to step out of your comfort zone. Do not let doubt hinder you from expressing yourself and halting your dreams.
Turn pizza boxes into turn tables. Laugh at Death. Create and live and laugh and dance. Dress in whatever you want to. Wear lingerie and shorts, cartoon character hats, a banana costume or nothing at all. Just make sure you are living!
Because living, being alive, is what life is all about.
And Life is Beautiful.
