The Importance Of Music

Just Go out And Listen

The Importance Of Music
King Of Wallpapers

A life without music would be a life not worth living. Music fuels everything in our world whether you realize it or not. It burrows into the deepest corners of our bodies when it plays and makes us move. Music can heighten a mood or bring it crashing down. I know that a happy song on a dark day can wake me from the deepest sadness. I’ve got a playlist just for that.

There’s always that one song that makes you scream THIS IS MY SONG whenever it plays. Think about it now and put it on. Rock out to it. Sing that bad boy in the shower. Show it to your friends. Listen to it and just really feel it in you. FInd new things to love about it. If you’re feeling frisky, comment it in the bottom so others can jam out with you. I wanted to write this piece to just inspire people to listen to new music. Recently I’ve been listening to exclusively new music and my days have been much happier because of it. Every new song helps me find a new side of myself. Sure there are some trash ones, but there are so many good ones that fill me with excitement. I know I’m not the first person to listen to these songs but to me they feel like my discovery. I listen to them wherever I go and provide a soundtrack for my life. I’m the star of my own movie called Life. Sure it’s had it’s ups and downs but did you hear that soundtrack? I’m hoping it’ll get the Oscar just for that.

Music can help you understand others and connect with culture outside of yours. There are some songs I listen to and I don’t know a single word but the feeling is all there. I understand what the artist was feeling when they wrote it and I feel a little better for it. There’s this one song, Gondry by Primary, from south korea that relaxes me like nothing else. I feel such a sense of ease when I listen even when there isn’t a lick of english in the whole song. Like i’ve said, it doesn’t matter. What matters is what the artist is feeling and how they convey that.

I urge everyone to listen to music as often as possible. Let it pump you up on a dreary work day or encourage you to run that extra mile on the treadmill. Use it to get out any emotion you’re just holding on to. If you don’t cry when you sing Rolling In The Deep then you haven’t really listened to it. Go cry with Adele and then pump yourself up with the Black Eyed Peas. Just listen to something!

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
