Finding Music & Finding Solace
"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything."
Finding solace and finding that happy place is everyone's life goal. Throughout time it is evident that doing so is not that easy. There will be struggles, trials, and tribulations that will accompany that a long the way. though it seems tough and life seems very busy, there is one simple answer to a lot of these issues. That answer is one word, and one word only: music. Music just has a different tone that gets our hearts beating. Whilst I was in my younger years music was a concept of hatred to me. I did not understand the idea of how important music was.
There are several books that are titled, "A Survivor's Guide To..." or even "A Life Guide to..." These books go on to explain in detail how to do something, mostly comparable to an instruction manual. I love reading these because of all of the life lessons that they teach. However, when it comes to music I sort of rename these titles: "A Survivor's Guide to life: Music" and maybe even "A Life Guide to happiness: Music." Back before I understood the concept that music can bring forth so much happiness I did not have that solace I do now.
Many people say that their favorite genre of music really depends on the day, which I can attest to that as well. Going forward has helped me understand that music is a great medication for the soul. Throughout time I have used various types of music to help control my emotions. When I am feeling down I listen to my favorite country playlist, or maybe even my soft pop playlist. I have never liked the idea of sound or the idea of loud sounds. Ever since I was born I have had a slight hatred towards sound. However, I find solace in music. It brings an incredible joy to life that was unavailable to me before.
Some music brings up the soul and some music encourages the mind. I have never had a favorite song due to the fact that several have helped me in my journey. I want to emphasize the importance of music and life. Music is meant to bring forth positive energy and positive surroundings to the soul. Life is so important and so is living it happily. Music is that medication to get through things. It is always so nice to take a break, sit down, pop in some AirPods, and listen away.
Whether it is summertime reggae, fall country, winter vintage, or even spring folk, music is sure to make a life bright, wonderful, happy, and joyful.
Music can also reflect a lot about the culture, the time, a language, or even the people. I personally love how music brings people of all ethnic backgrounds, cultures, and even beliefs together. There is something just so beautiful about how we all can use sound as a way to convey feelings. From the continents of Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Australia, Africa, and even Oceana, music connects each soul. I honestly love the concept and the fact that music is meant to bring us all together. Through instruments, beats, and sounds we all can connect all 7.5 billion and counting people on this planet.
The most amazing things in life stem from the smallest things. The smallest things always add up to make the bigger picture. I love this idea and concept. It has helped me realize the most important things in life. Music is one of those small things that help fuel my life -what helps me move forward. Listening to music helps calm the restless mind, soothe the aching soul, and repair the broken heart.
"Music brings forth so many emotions. Music is the bank of feelings."
