I started FabulousNFrugal because I wanted to share my journey toward being debt-free with anyone willing to listen in hopes of inspiring women-of-color to make more meaningful choices around their dollars.
I love art, learning new things, writing, reading, travel, theatre, and retreats. In other words, if I am going to spend money, I prefer to spend money on experiences that stretch me in some kind of way. When I spend on experiences, I always leave feeling fabulous, renewed, inspired, and connected to something greater than myself.
And this weekend, going to a Black Violin concert was money well spent in my book.
I had never heard of this duo before spotting a picture of them-two black dudes with violins-in a local newspaper early one morning while I was riding the train to work last week. “How intriguing-young, black violinists with swag?!” I thought as I tore out the ad and stuffed it into the bottom of my bag.
I bought a pair of tickets a couple of days later.
In addition to being phenomenal artists, they were inspirational. In between songs, they spoke about the payoff that comes with hardwork and perseverance.
I don’t know about you but I can easily get discouraged when I plotting to take over the world. Seeing two of my kinfolk on the other side definitely renewed my faith in the merits and feasibility of my dreams.
Here is Black Violin putting some stank on it. My hand was a little shaky. lol.
