I don’t know anybody who doesn’t like music. The extend of love for music defers individually of course. Nevertheless, I can’t help and wonder why music is so important for so many people? In the end it’s just a sound with rhythm that often has words.
It is often said that music is the international language of our world. I totally agree with this. I have been blessed to travel around our globe for a bit and have seen firsthand that music breaks down walls and build bridges between people and cultures. You might not always be familiar with the rhythm or even know the words, but you can always feel the emotion behind the music.
Music is emotion and we all have plenty of emotions. It doesn’t matter if I’m happy, sad, disappointed or mad, I always have the right kind of music to go with my mood. Music can make an emotion stronger, but it can also make a (not wanted) emotion disappear.
To me music is like a medicine for my soul. It’s a kind of therapy that I can’t live without. I have a very broad taste in music and find joy in listening to many different genres. I could listen to music without words for hours, but in the end most songs that are dear to me have words with a special meaning.
It is funny how the sound of rhythm and words can have such a great effect on us human beings. If only we could find a way to use this for the better in our world. Wouldn’t that be amazing if we could all reunite as one? No more poverty or war, just all together chillin’ with all kinds of music. (Currently feeling really optimistic!)
I know that I'm dreaming, but great dreams can lead to big things and accomplishments!
Goodnight and sweet dreams everyone...
