Somewhere a long the way; somebody or some group of people instructed us that it is possible to feel ok all of the time. That the human mind should normally behave appropriate at all times. And if there is any part of your day or week or month that falls short of feeling 100 percent; there is something wrong with you. Let me tell you what happens to everybody, but they won’t talk about it. Because they feel that it’s only them. Everybody freaks out. I want to show you something. That’s a xanax. Point 5 milligrams. You know why I keep going back to my doctor for more? Not because I take them. Because I run them through the laundry. These do not go through my blood stream; these go through my plumbing. But I’ve got my point 5 in my pocket in case I freak the fuck out in front of all of you. If you want to freak out; freak out. If you feel like all the sudden you’re sick and you want to cry; go do it. Just everybody accept that everybody is going to freak out. Yeah, everybody’s going to freak out! You’re not going to be 100 percent all the time! Let me make it easy for you. You’re going to freak out. You’re going to have at least one point a week that doesn’t feel right. But maybe it doesn’t feel so wrong if you know that it is something that is supposed to happen to you. It is the other side of being conscious and loving. That there are going to be times when you have to hit control, alt, delete. You might be walking through an air port, you might be having the time of your life. In fact, it’s more likely to happen during the best part of your life. You might sit down in Cabo, put your feet in the sand, crack open a Corona and whine. Thats you not letting yourself have a good time. And I know there’s somebody out there going, “I want to go to the bathroom and go home”. ME TOO! Nobody wants to go home more than me, and I gotta play on stage every night. So what I’m trying to say to you, is fight on.
