Let’s strive to be WHO we are meant to be and make no apologies for it.

Let’s embrace the possibilities and disregard the negativity that may try to discourage us.

Let’s explore the unknown and give life to the notion that we might be the missing link to so many problems and issues in the world but we have to be willing and bold.

Let’s be grateful for our blessings for without them we could not have made it this far.

Let’s seize opportunities for they are stepping stones to new chapters in our lives.

Let us help when and wherever we can because it is the right thing to do even though we may not always get a “Thank You”.

Let us empower ourselves to be the heroes the world so desperately needs us to be – as you do you and I do me.

Let us support and encourage each other because we ALL can use a cheerleader from time to time. ūüôā¬† Pushing us along the way to persevere another day.

Let us remember to live, love, laugh and forgive along the way. These simple acts may help extend our lives each day.

Let us never forget to pray as this for me is the only way, to start and end each day.

Lastly, let us just be and as you work on YOU and I work on ME together we’ll be growing independently. Learning as we go along the way to appreciate and value every single day.

Thank you for making this blog one of your stops in this journey called life.

Have a wonderful weekend.

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. ūüôā

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.¬† ūüôā

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. ūüôā

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