Okay, I’ve been thinking, you know when you think everything is going great in your life, you feel like you are on top of the world, and for one split second, one small thing triggers it, and it all crumbles to the ground and you fall apart!!!! Well, we all feel that way all the time and as much as you want to be the fixer of it all everyone tells you to give it time and space for the person to reflect on their actions towards the other person, and you, as the victim, have to find everything in your power to keep yourself occupied while you wait.
I have done some research about how music can detect a persons moods, ability to do something, and it also helps fight depression because the difference between the sound and lyrics to songs can truly define a person on how they connect to the artist on what went through their minds while writing their songs. I truly believe that people can stop depression and clear their minds on the negative things that they go through in their daily lives.
If everyone can take time out of their hectic schedules and find a way to relax or meditate for 30 minutes a day to clear their minds, they will feel so much better about themselves and the people in their lives. I found a quote on a website that says “music helps you express your emotions. It’s melodic encouragement that helps you let go of suppressed feelings. A study published in the British Journal showed that music is cathartic, especially drumming. You didn’t need a medical study to prove that. You discovered that yourself when you were a 4 year-old banging on your mothers pots and pans.” What my opinion on that to me means that depending on the song, it can surely affect your mood by how the beats are in the way the drummer helped out in the song.
I guess what I am trying to say is that no matter what is going on in your life, do not let the negative side affect it. Think of the positive, make a change in the world and make a statement to say that you are alive and well and here on earth for a reason. Everyone in the world is here for a purpose in life to do what they will be happy and remember when its their time to go. I have been known to be a great inspiration to people and even though I am battling my own demons, per say, I still find a way to find something that will make me feel great like music, song-writing, anything entertainment and learning the acoustic guitar to keep me feel relaxed and at ease.
