HOW TO ALLOW MUSIC TO SPEAK TO YOU
You know when you're driving and the music is on shuffle and a song comes on. A little tear leaks from your eye and you start listening a little more intentionally. After listening for a while you realize, this song was perfectly placed, perfectly timed.
This song takes you to a place. A place that you can't even really even describe to other people. It's this place where everything makes sense and you're ready for change and you're ready to move forward. You realize in that split second, that everything in your life is a choice.
A choice to be heard. A choice to react. A choice to move forward. Oh I’m not saying the choices are always easy ones, most likely these kinds of decisions are hard. They require honest communication and integrity. They might be the hardest choices you've ever made in your life.
These choices might include setting up boundaries with people who are unhealthy. Deciding who you get to be. Getting up each day and facing what comes. Living your dreams. Becoming the author of your own story, and putting a stop to everyone writing all over your pages. Deciding when and where and how you want to live your life.
Deciding what makes you feel whole.
Yes, one song can provoke all of that. If you really feel it and invite that song into your body.
Its time to ask yourself:
Who is that voice in the back of your mind, what is it saying?
How do you want to feel?
What is it that you want in this life?
What is it that you want to accomplish?
What music might embody these thoughts?
I encourage you to let these ideas breathe, let them live outside of you, because your life is worth living. You are worth it. You are enough.
Here are some of my favourite thought-provoking songs:
