Music Reflection Mondays #16 – Preferences

Welcome back to Music Reflection Mondays!


Music does different things for different people. Some use it to relax or de-stress, others to get their groove on (at the club or while working out at the gym) the uses vary from person to person.  However, this does not take away from the fact that music helps us get through life sometimes even distracting us from our problems even if only for a moment. For some of us that is good enough. 🙂

Does the fact that your individual preferences for music if different from mine mean that your selections or preferences are better than mine or vice versa?  I think not!  Once I like what I listen to and you feel the same about what you like that’s all that matters.   Sometimes you might hear a song that others might be all hyped about and wonder to yourself, “What’s the big deal about this song?”  Keep in mind that someone else might be listening to your preference and ask the same question.

Our preferences make us the individuals that we are.  There may be songs or genre of music that we share and enjoy likewise there may be some that we don’t share or enjoy – and you know what, that’s okay.   I do not believe that we were placed on this earth to like all the same things and do all the same things – differences create variety and that helps to keep things interesting.  🙂

Don’t make assumptions about people because of how they look.  Their musical preferences may surprise you so don’t stereotype.  Listen to what you like and what moves you but don’t be afraid to try something new from time to time.  You may not like everything and you don’t have to.   Don’t limit yourself to only what you know – allow your musical database to grow.

There is so much to learn and explore in the world of music from the different genre of music to new artiste and so much more.  Keep an open mind and ear.  In life there comes a time when you learn that in order to be truly happy you need to just do what you love. Music is no different. 🙂

Have a good night and a blessed week.  Thank you for stopping by.

  1. I totally agree with you on how some songs make us feel based on what and how we’re feeling at the time. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful night. 🙂

  2. I love that you encourage openness beyond the appearances of others. Just as many of us have different looks for our different stations in life, I often find that I have different taste in music depending on what is happening around me. The music that makes me happy in one situation may not in another, and the same goes for the person next to me. This is a terrific reminder of understanding and diversity. 🙂

  3. Cherylene, music is the secret that the heart wants to keep hidden. For music and love are the soft spots of the heart. Thank you for sharing.😃😉🌹
