I visited Drake's favorite museum yesterday.
Just kidding, but I did have the opportunity to visit the Museum of Feelings yesterday and I actually felt something. Prior to making my way downtown to go to the once in a lifetime pop up shop sponsored by Glade candles, I only knew one feeling. The feeling of content was my ride or die. If happiness and doubt had a baby, they would hands down name it content and for the past couple of months, I had been babysitting their baby.
As odd as it sounds, I had gotten used to babysitting such a feeling that it almost began to feel natural. When I heard about a museum that was based on ones feelings, I knew this was an opportunity that I didn't want to miss out on.
As I approached the building after standing in a line for nearly an hour I was accompanied by my friends I like to call excitement and anticipation. I couldn't wait to see what was in store and then the doors opened. My heart melted and with each step closer to another entrance my body was evoked by yet another feeling. Feelings that I hadn't felt in quite sometime and it felt good to welcome them with open arms.
Then there was one friend that left a few months back and showed face every once again, I liked to call him 'happiness'. He engulfed my entire being and made me realize that this was exactly what I needed. Not being at the museum, but just the idea of getting out and living life.
I begin to question if I had been living or just existing? A conversation I didn't really want to have with myself while basking in a whirlwind of feelings and emotions, so I put a smile on. A genuine smile. It felt good and while I felt like Alice in Feeling-land, the only feeling I felt was happiness.
When I walked out of the exit, the feeling lingered behind me and I didn't mind. I welcomed it with open arms the same way he welcomed me time and time again. This time I vowed not to let go.
I grabbed happiness by the arm and ran with it.
Who knew a museum full of senses, feelings and Drake's tears [okay, maybe not that] could help you snap back into reality?
