Like they say in The Clash song ‘Should I stay or should I go?’ That’s a question I ask myself a lot. I think long and hard before I decide anything. My thoughts are usually negative. I think about all the wrong things that could happen. I rather be careful than taking risks. Sometimes you should take a chance and that’s what I did. I took a chance. It’s still time until it happens so you never know if I get cold feet. I’m talking about Robbie Williams concert in Finland, August 10, 2017 that I’m gonna attend. I’m actually never been to a real concert. I have been on small ones with different artists performing but not to a concert with one only. I wished Duran Duran would have been my first but since that never came, Robbie is the second best.
Going to concerts are not cheap. I thought if I should go to this one or not but when the tickets got on sale today (Friday), I didn’t think twice. That’s an achievement for me. Not a thought of not going didn’t come to mind. I still don’t think so. I’m actually looking forward to it. I lost money but it’s all worth it. I saw Robbie’s concert in the movie theater once and I loved that one. Now I’m actually going to see him live for real. It feels like forever before it happens. I’m proud of myself for taking that chance. It’s liberating to have that kind of courage when you’re an introvert. Maybe I’ve grown as a person but it’s also because I’m older. I’ve got more confidence than before and I’m not as intimated by things I’m unfamiliar with. I still feel uncomfortable around big crowds but if I want to experience concerts and such, I need to get out of my comfort zone. If I think too much about what could happen, then it’s more difficult to do things. Attending this concert is a way to prove myself I can do it without feeling like a coward.
“Sorry I can’t come. I’m gonna go to a concert” is something I wish I could say at least for once and now I can. Or it depends what I do at the time. To August next year is a long way and anything can happen before that. I think I have to pinch myself. I can’t believe I’m actually gonna see Robbie Williams live. The tickets were quite expensive. I wasn’t really sure if I could afford it but I thought, that money will come back later. Also known as having a job. I loved his music for at least 20 years and it’s finally paying off. He’s been in Finland twice before but then I didn’t have a chance to go. I was so pleased his tour would reach our country again. His concerts are always so entertaining and funny. I’m sure I’m gonna loved it and remember the rest of my life.
