Spencer Bell Legacy Project

An artistic legacy doing good things

I hate to say this but I kind of forgot I had this page. I had every intention on going to SBL in May. I still want to I'm just fighting with the mom part of my brain. It'll just be me (without my husband) going. My mother in law will watch the kids for me... but I can't seem to get over the fact of spending money for the flight, tickets, hotel and all the other incidentals that come with a trip, when I need to remodel and update part of the house. The kids need summer clothes. We're paying on a family vacation. I can't get my brain to accept it's okay to do something for myself. I haven't even gotten a hair cut in like 8 months. Money's not really an issue I just... can't have something be for just me. But my husband can't go (all his vacation time is used up for the family one in September) so I can't say it's something for him as well as me. I just know I need to make my mind up soon or circumstances with do it for me.

I struggle with this desicion every SBL!  My thought is, 355- 360 days out of the year, I give to my family and kids first.  But I get 5-10 days for me!  I come back energized and ready to take on the world again.  The desicion is soley yours, and if it makes you feel guilty or bad, perhaps its not a good desicion.  But I will say this, have you seen the line up ??  There are 11-12 AMAZING performers/bands... It would be a miricle to get this line up again in the same place!  It's NOT something I'm willing to miss!

Being a mom does not mean you're not a person anymore, ya know. I agree with Lisa. Everyone needs to do something for themselves once in a while.

Tara, I don't know you or your personal situation, but in my opinion, if your husband doesn't have a problem with it, and you have the funds to do it without putting any strain on your family, you should do it.

Sometimes you just NEED to do something that IS in fact, ONLY for you.  Keeping your own heart and soul healthy and happy will help you to keep others happy. :)

I often  have a hard time doing things for myself, because I was raised to put others first, and I do actually quite enjoy doing things for other people.  I cringe at buying a new shirt for 20 bucks at walmart, but I easily send 50 dollars to a band's kickstarter fund, buy my best friend a new watch, etc.

Good luck with your decision, and I hope we see you there.

The band has come to life. We've now played two shows, a third is coming up Saturday, and a fourth in July. And somewhere in there, we're going to record an album, possibly a separate EP, and get shirts/stickers/buttons made. Our first show was fun. I was so nervous I got nauseous before I took the stage. It was a mix of nerves and adrenaline, really. I used to puke before every show back in my previous bands, it's weird that "tradition" has somewhat continued. We weren't sure how the music was…See More
