Music is such a reflection of where I am in the world

This Is When I Feel Grateful: Day 15 Countdown

When I was a young girl, I was sure that I was going to be a famous singer someday, but then my parents bought me a stereo that could record your singing. I wasn’t horrible, but I knew that I needed a new dream. I loved watching American Idol when it was on and was always a little sad when the bad singers swear that their parents and everyone else told them they were great. I am grateful that my parents bought me that microphone set so that I knew the truth.

Even if I am not the best singer in the world, I love to sing along to my favorite songs. I have three daughters, and we often sing along to music on the radio. Music is such a reflection of where I am in the world. After my last break up, I had a difficult time listening to current songs since they all seemed to reflect my broken heart.

I can also hear a song and immediately be transported back to a time and place in my past. Some music I associate with major crossroads, heartaches and achievements in my life. One of my all time favorite songs that I never seem to get sick of is (Sitting on) The Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding. “So I’m jusy gonna sit on the dock of the bay watching the tide roll away…” Just like that I am there; I am instantly carried away to a beach, wind and waves. Today I feel grateful when I hear a favorite song.

All through my day, no matter where I go, or what I do, I am always looking for the good. I try to find the good in people, in the world, in my life or even just in my day.
