You always hear about performing fearlessly.
But can anyone listen fearlessly?
Listening fearlessly shouldn’t mean just listening to avante garde music, trying to out-cool everyone.
Perhaps listening fearlessly means being curious, going out of your way to pick up that random cd from the library or the store and looking up any artist that catches your fancy, wherever you may be hearing them.
Perhaps listening fearlessly means being vulnerable, letting yourself get burned a couple times, acknowledging that one band isn’t your cup of tea and moving on.
Perhaps listening fearlessly means being hopeful, knowing that great music is everywhere and that with every couple of burns you’ll find that one artist who will change your life.
With all this said, I am sure of one thing: anyone can listen fearlessly.
