Waking up with music gives us the mood. What a lovely day to greet the rising sun with coffee and a sound that tickles our heart! Many would say to play a song that your heart desires for a moment. And yes, this is true. Whatever we feel in a particular time can be more stimulated as we listen to song that matches our present emotion. But then as they say, it is all in mind just as how each interprets a wall painting that touches the hearts of the viewers.
It is all in the mind. Create your mood by choosing what music to listen to first thing in the morning. Wanna go hip and upbeat? Why not? The rest of the day should be alive, anyway. Or how about thinking sexy the whole day while staying at home? Seductive smooth jazz will be great, then. Let the creative juices flow as we listen to product of arts around us. Ahhh, but the best music so far if you feel like going nostalgic comes from the gorgeous drops of rain. Notice how these tiny drops from the sky fall by looking at them straight from our bedroom window. They create beats. And as long as this is not the kind of rain that will drown people but just drizzles, then drizzling memories will begin to pour. Hopefully, we’d be selective enough to sort what would keep us thinking—happy and in love?! Cup of coffee is great during this time of the day. Play a soothing jazz. Just try to keep it down. Stare at a relaxing wall painting displayed in your room and there you go. You’ll have all the memories coming back to you. They just keep coming in and before you know it, your subconscious is submerged to nostalgia.
Life we expect or the life we plan to enjoy for the rest of the day may not smoothly go as we think it will, but then thanks for the arts—thanks for music in particular to keep our company, to console us, and to let us submerge for a not so-good emotion to ease up the load we carry. How to imagine the world without this simple entertainment is like thinking the impossibility of people to connect their emotion to something that they can relate to. With music, reflection becomes easy which benefits the soul. It is not our body that needs a recharging, anyway. Our soul needs to be pampered, too. Thanks to music. Life seems to be easy for the time being!
