One of my favourite things to do is composing music. It brings so much happiness to my soul and always shifts my energy to some higher frequencies I haven’t even thought existed. When I create music, I completely forget about time and I get fully absorbed in the moment that I am in. These moments bring me joy, excitement and a peace of mind.
Although I’m not a famous composer and I may never be (most people don’t even know that I compose), I will continue making music because of the enjoyment it brings me.
So, I have a few questions for you:
‘What do you do by choice? What does light you up? What do you enjoy doing so much, that you forget about time? Is is writing, playing sports, cooking or pottering in the garden?’ I believe, we all have something, at least one thing we really love to do. And if not, I’m sure we’ve just left it aside at some point in life.
Maybe you are one of those people who forgot what your passion really is. Perhaps you’ve been busy raising your family and now that your kids are off to college, you suddenly have more time on your hands and feel a little lost. Or you’ve just been too busy living life, going to work and forgot about your interests all together. You are happy when Friday comes, so you can have a weekend off, and what you normally do is relax in front of the TV or scroll through social media.
Well, if so, it’s time to change things. Close your eyes for a moment and travel back in time. Travel all the way to your childhood. Then, ask yourself: ‘What did I enjoy doing as a child?’ Think about what you liked doing and how it made you feel. What activities did you enjoy? If you remember it, perfect. If not, keep coming back to this exercise, at least once a day, until you find it. And you will. We all have/had that one thing that brings or brought us so much joy.
I have a clear memories of writing and composing music from an early age. I would spend hours and hours putting tunes together on the keyboard or the piano. Then, in my early twenties, when I had my emotional breakdown, I kept my passion for music aside. Luckily, I found it again, almost a decade later (better later than never) and I never looked back. Creating music makes me feel free, empowered and very joyful. So, how about you? What do you like or you liked doing so much? What creates that special spark in your life when you think about it? It’s time to get back to it my friend.
