Music: How to 'Beat' Negativity
"Music is meant to connect us all together and heal our souls."
It is hard to look back on life knowing that I used to hate music. To me, music used to be just a cacophony to the ears. However, it was not until I found the islands of Hawaii. My first trip to my 'island home' really changed a lot for me. The music resonated in my soul. I specifically remember hearing the song 'Aloha 'Oe' by Queen Liliuokalani for the first time and my eyes immediately lit up. I felt that instant coexistence with the beautiful island tunes. It was almost as if I have had a long lost friend meeting once again after not being able to chat for a while.
With that instant connection I also felt a shot of happiness run through my veins. Ever since that fateful day in 2016 I have felt nothing but happiness and positivity when listening to my favorite songs. Music is truly the way to beat negativity. Whether it is with the intention of dancing or the intention of relaxing, music is there for us all. Despite delivering those positive messages and beats we all want to hear, music connects us together as a world. I personally love cultural music because I feel like I am in a specific place. Music is our home, our lives.
