Have you seen this video? It’s absolutely amazing how big of an impact music can have on some people. For me personally, it is a HUGE part of my life. I am constantly listening/writing/playing music. I think that once you start, it becomes such a huge part of you, you can start to feel empty if you stop. There’s something amazing that happens when you put words that have meaning to a melody, it doesn’t matter if you’re the best singer or not; you’re expressing yourself in a way that can only be done with music.
Another side of the coin is what happens when we just listen to music. Much like reading a good book or watching a sad movie, there can be songs that pull at our heart and make us feel all kinds of different emotions. It doesn’t surprise me that music works the way it does with the man in this video. I have experienced things, whether it be a death in the family or other tough situations, where music has been the only thing able to pick me up.
If you’ve had a similar experience with music I’d love to hear it!!
