Freddie Mercury

Today I took a trip down memory lane and watched some videos of the 1992 Freddie Mercury tribute concert. I ended up feeling old as this was almost 26 years ago to the day!!! But is this possibly the best concert ever?? The main man wasn’t there but what a line-up!!

Where else has an unlikely combination like Elton and Axel worked so well? Although I have to say David Bowie and Annie Lennox stole the show for me.

Bowie and Lennox – Under Pressure

When you think of the absolute musical legends that have passed away since, it goes to show that Freddie was in a class of his own. I am truly grateful for the place music has in my life. One of my favourite past-times is to go to concerts and this is one I wish I had.

Courage

Gratitude List 23/04/2018

Like so many other strengths of character, my courage has improved tenfold over the last year or so. In the not so distant past, fear was such a big part of my life it consumed my thinking on a daily basis. That fear led to denial and suppression. That’s how I used to deal with things – I didn’t. Today, I find my courage is going from strength to strength and is slowly but surely progressing over my fears. What have I done differently? I wish I could give a diffinitive answer. What I do know is I practice the serenity prayer, work the recovery program and witness it work for others. I am very grateful for the courage that is improving my life.
