Me, Myself, Music And Life

3..2..1… Here we go again!

Hello there! I’m Nancy and welcome to one of my many attempts at this thing called blogging. Writing has always been a struggle for me. It is as if I permanently placed this writers block in my head. So, why am I writing now? Well, they say the best way to get over your setbacks is to face them head first. Moving along, what I really want to talk about today is the act of spreading love.

So it begins…

Have you ever wondered what the universal language of mankind is? Well I have got just the answer you have been looking for. Music. It is as simple as that. Think about it, everywhere you go in the world, no matter how primitive or uncivilized that location may be you will find music. I believe it to be one of the many things that unites us as the human race.

What does music have to do with happiness?

That is a good question. As a person who values happiness greatly, I began to wonder how I could spread love and happiness across the world in a way that everyone could understand. I have traveled around the world and the one thing I noticed that brings us together is music. Regardless if it is in another language, our bodies are somehow able to understand it. It is as if was programed into our DNA. We begin to get synched to beat of the rhythm. It starts to flow through our bodies like blood, until we are all in unison synchronized with the music.

Music is for everyone.

I first started my journey with music in my teenage years. Like every other kid, I joined band. I soon branched out of the woodwinds and into guitar. I found music to be my creative outlet. It helped me channel my frustrations as an angsty teen and turn them into something I could share with the world and I believe it can do the same for you. Music can be therapeutic and in many occasions help people with depression, anxiety and many other things.  Check this link out to see how music unites people all around the world. https://vimeo.com/22501202

The importance of music

“Music can change the world because it can change people.” This is a quote by musician Bono. I cannot imagine a better way to have put that into words. We live in a world where we are constantly reminded of all the bad that is happening around us. Everywhere we turn to news, social media, radio, etc. there always seems to be someone talking about the negative things in the world. With this happening around us it is almost impossible to not focus on that. I want to change that. Music is my creative outlet. It is what I turn to when the world is turning dark. It is a way for humans to express their emotions and share it with others.

Music is Love.

My goal in life is to spread love. As an artist I have chose music as my method of operation.   Think of a way you can incorporate music into your daily life. Has there ever been a time where everything that could go wrong was going wrong? If so, tell me about how music helped you cope through this rough patch in your life. You’d be surprised how much more in common we have with each other as humans.
