One of the things I enjoy tremendously and unfortunately don’t often have the time for is listening to music. And by that I don’t mean background music that’s being played on the radio, but rather sitting down and choosing songs that I love.
Yesterday was one of the rare occasions that I found the time to do just that. I couldn’t sleep and instead of turning and tossing for another hour, I turned on my iPad, went to YouTube and began selecting videos of songs I like.
Leaning back I enjoyed the music, closed my eyes and let the lyrics wash over me. A feeling of gratitude, harmony and bliss began to spread within me. And then something else: Deep down I knew that everything is possible. That whatever endeavor I started, I could succeed, if I really wanted.
That’s the impact music always has on me, when I take the time to listen and to enjoy. All of sudden I feel as though the world is my oyster.
What does music do to you? What do you do, when you want to feel like this?
