this Method Acting, well, i call that living…
If it was socially acceptable i’d play a song that expresses my emotional state rather than struggle to find the right words when dealing with intense situations…no matter who, where, what, or when. it just sounds so much more eloquent…inevitably, when anyone is feeling frustrated, depressed, ecstatic, romantic, or overwhelmed we find it challenging to properly express our emotions through plain words. Thats what i love about music. it’s not only a great stress reliever as a cathartic outlet to pent up energies…but it’s always there for you. no matter how lonely or crappy you may feel. and there’s a comforting sense to know that someone else at some point felt the same way you feel at that moment…so much so that they wrote a song about it. if anything it provides assurance that even though some may think you’re “crazy”, you’re not alone.
As i embark on a new chapter of my life and significant life changes…now more than ever, i think sharing these moments of expression could be helpful for not only me…but perhaps for some other kindred spirits floating out there.
‘Cause I don’t know what tomorrow brings.
It’s alive with such possibilities.
All I know is I feel better when I sing.
Burdens are lifted from me, that’s my voice rising!
