I love music.
Music is a very powerful form of media. Â Few things have the ability to convey rich stories and complex emotions in such a compact form that can be understood and felt by people from vastly different backgrounds – but music can do all of that.
I’ve found I can find a song to fit every mood, Â and for a variety of activities. Â There’s music for when I’m happy, and music for when I’m sad. Â There’s music that gets my blood pumping and provides great soundtrack for exercise, and music that soothes and calms before going to sleep. Â There’s even music that puts me in the zone and helps me get work done. Â There’s something for almost any occasion.
Even better – there’s something for everyone. Â Some people love country music (I don’t), others like Rap (again, I don’t). Â Still others love rock, punk, alternative, classical, or blues (I do). Â It’s easy to find something that speaks to you. Â Something that is more than just noise – something with meaning.
In some cases you can even use this to your benefit. Listening to happy upbeat music when you’re sad can help brighten your day. Â Listening to energetic music when you feel lethargic can help perk you up and give you energy. Â And of course – listening to soothing soft music can help lull you to sleep when you’re having trouble falling asleep.
Sometimes I wish my life had a soundtrack…I just can’t decide what I’d want to be the theme song.
