Do you ever have pinch myself moments? I recently experienced such a moment.

 Hugo Ferreira from Tantric and Petra Monaco at The Lounge at Ledo in Lynchburg.

Standing not 2 feet away from my favorite bands – to experience a fist bump with Hugo from Tantric and trying to keep it cool because you know I am an adult. Hanging out with people like Seasons and new friends just a chatting and laughing away. Then topped with getting a picture taking with Hugo himself. My 16 year old self is still fan girling all over herself.

Tantric is by far in the top 5 of my favorite bands and the lyrics for me anyway, can be applied to just about any situation.

Allow me to quote myself

I lose myself in the music + find myself in the lyrics and it feels like coming home.

I feel like this just about through every song from Tantric – like the song Mourning for example… it’s about a breakup where the love feels a bit one-sided and it’s time to call it quits. But to me that doesn’t just have to be between two people as a couple, this could really be a relationship with anyone. You can only give so much before it is time to walk away.

Perhaps you love your mom but it isn’t returned the same way or a friend that you thought was your best friend and the other person just doesn’t feel the same.

We all are always at different stages in our lives and some people will stay while some are only to be with us for a brief time. I think the key is that it is okay to give yourself permission to mourn the separation to have that grieving period.

It really doesn’t matter the break of a relationship or friendship and in some cases even with family members. It’s a hard thing to go through especially when you realize you are the one giving 100% and the other person can’t even be bothered.

Something amazing about the songs and the lyrics is that you can interpret to help you with whatever you are going through. They can mean different things to different people, depending on your experiences and the way one lives their life.

Create the Life You Want + Make an Impact while you're at it!

Petra Monaco is a published author, coach, mom and breaks the status quo for fun. As a foster kid, she knows the challenges and excuses people make as she rewrote her own story and then worked her way through to become a Master's level therapist. However, after watching her son fight for his life due to a rare genetic disorder and three liver transplants, she now coaches creatives and multi-passionates to stop waiting for “one day” and the “perfect moments’. Petra helps you dive deeply into the heart of things in order to discover your next steps, inspires you to set up your own personal framework so you can break free from fear, doubt, and overwhelm so you can start creating the life you want now. Petra uses her personal story to inspire and motivate people into doing the work they need to do to create change because she believes that your excuses are just avoidance. You can have the cake and eat it too if you're willing to show up for it!
