I love music!
I know that sounds like a cliché of some sort, but mba*, this is me letting you know that I live music. I am media wise, so I am selective of the kind of music I give my ear-time, but I can put a song on replay for days if I get hooked on it.
I have discovered that somehow Music has its ways of influencing my life. For example, if I am feeling down, for whatsoever reason (and I feel like basking in that low), I could play particular kind of ‘slow’ songs, and well I remain ‘low beat’.
If I am interested in being upbeat, all I have to do is jam some really upbeat jamz and before I know it I am shaking off the low feeling.
There are times I want to spend time praying and I am feeling lazy, all I have to do is plug in my ears, and play my ‘prayer playlist’, (yeah, I have a prayer playlist) and I am praying for as long as I can go.
If I want to get something done fast too, an upbeat jamz would help me without my constant checking of the time. It seems time just has a way of passing faster when I am on these fast jamz.
Have you ever had a time you were upset and the way to shake it off was to move to a groove. Might just be the tap of your feet or the bobbing of your head to a beat and before long, your ‘upset’ is all gone. Well, that is me.
I guess loving to dance too has its contributions to why I respond to music in these ways.
How do you respond to music? I’ll like to hear from you, and yeah, if you would want me to share portions of my playlist, do let me know. I’ll ask for yours too o.
Thank you for reading.
