Music is such a wonderful gift to our world. What a magnificent creation we are blessed with; music. There are so many ways that music can help us in our daily lives.

What kind of music do you enjoy? Do you like to hear soothing instrumental, punk rock, or even the blues? There are even so many more kinds to choose from. There are so many different varieties that we can listen to and enjoy. They are all ways of expression. Music is a form of expression not only for the composer but for the listeners as well. We all have different opinions about what we like and don't like, and what we choose to listen to. A lot of times we enjoy the beat of the song, the guitar solos, or maybe we feel like we can really connect with the lyrics. Whatever kind of music we listen to, it is good for us and it is a healthy way of expressing ourselves.

Music is also a great way to relax and release stress. So many people turn to music when they are sad or angry. It is a way of letting go of our emotions. Connecting with music is a way of releasing our stress. When we feel like we can identify with the lyrics or tune of a song, then we feel bonded, like we are not the only one in our situation. Music is also great for us when we are already in a good mood. A lot of times it will continue our positive feelings, and possibly put us in an even better mood. This is something that works well for me. When we listen to a song that we really enjoy it makes us smile, it makes us feel good. A lot of times it even causes us to sing along with it, or possibly even dance, which are two other great stress relievers. Singing and dancing are healthy for us. They are all ways of releasing emotion and having fun. Music is also a way of inspiring people. Many great artists listen to music as they create their masterpieces. A lot of people listen to music as they work out, to keep them on pace with an upbeat tempo. And plenty of people listen to music as they work to help pass the time, or keep them motivated. Whatever it may be, music is a wonderful way of relaxing.

So next time you are feeling down, turn up the tunes! Even when you are feeling good, turn on some music and you will feel even better! Music is always around us, open up to the different kinds and see what moves you. Most importantly, enjoy the gifts of life.

"Music is well said to be the speech of angels."

  1. Very true. Music is a 'must have' when I paint and is very inspiring.

    Speaking of music, I'm excited about a new game coming out this holiday for the Xbox 360 called "Dance Central" kinda like Rock Band except for dancing. It is even made by the same people that made Rock Band, so you know it will be good.

    Here's a trailer if you are interested:

    When we went to E3 this year, Microsoft hired a bunch of pro dancers to show it off. Pretty cool. It's going to be my new workout!

    Ha ha, because guess what, mid-drift shirts are going to be back this spring/summer for 2011. Fashion Week in New York just ended and the runways were crawling with belly shirts.

    We'll see! :D
