As most of you know or have noticed most of my post titles are lyrics from songs, or song titles that may happen to be stuck in my head at that time. I realized last night while writing this post, that so much of my inspiration comes from music. If I am having a hard time thinking of something, I just play some music, and it gets all of the thoughts flowing almost immediately. I tend to relate to music much more when I can connect with the lyrics. I tend to be a big sap. Always connecting songs to memories, and memories to songs. I also find myself singing a lot more when I lack inspiration, it helps me feel centered. (for those of you who didn’t know I like to record covers on my computer and play guitar even though my guitar skills are super rusty). I also find that thoughts come to me at the weirdest times, times when I am not ready for them and times when I don’t have a computer in front of me to type it all down. That’s why I carry a notebook with me at all times. I also have been known to fiercely type on my Iphone in the “notes” app in the subway just so I don’t forget anything I want to say. When the words come they’re like pure gold, and you just can’t bare to forget them.
I started writing about music and inspiration because lately I have been feeling pretty dull and lacking it. I think the stress of the holidays got to me a little and I am just starting to settle down again. I am starting to think more about the future and in my head I am planning out some ideas that I would love to put into action once I am done with school. It’s scary to think I will be done with school in May, now I am thinking…WHAT NEXT?! It’s amazing how dreams can take form so fast. When I feel like I am doubting myself or being negative I just try to remember how far I’ve come, and then everything inside me seems to settle, as if I have absolutely nothing to worry about.
