My Soul was Touched


Music has always played a big role in my life. It makes me feel better if I'm feeling overloaded, depressed, or sometimes just need a little bit of sunshine in my life. It makes me smile and laugh and sing and dance like crazy when I'm happy, and just need a little something extra. It gives me something to do as my hands work and my mind starts to feel bored.

When I hear a song I love, it's like it gives you permission to jump out of your shell and start to lip-sink and make up new dance moves. It's that little push that sends you and your friends over the edge of being totally yourselves with each other.

Though music seems to elevate our happiness, there are times, too, when we're feeling sad, that suddenly it has new meaning for us. We heard the words before, but it's like it's only finally sinking in as to what it really meant. It's like before we heard, but now we listen. We understand what the person was saying as they penned these words, maybe with a tear in their eye.

"When you're happy, you enjoy the music, but when you're sad, you understand the lyrics." ~Frank Ocean

Music, whenever you're listening to it, rather just touches the soul. <3

  1. So so so true. When I'm in a bad mood, (Christian) music always helps me see my errors and want to be more loving, and when I'm happy? Well, I go crazy in my room! I can actually relate to the quote, too. Last September, a boy that my brother knew committed suicide, and even though I didn't know him, it struck me really hard. When I turned on the radio, a song that repeatedly says "it's good to be alive" came on, and it finally truly meant something to me.
    Great post :). (I need to find a new adjective! : P)

    1. Yeah, I don't know anyone who doesn't like music! :D Also, this is really random, but last night you were in my dream! I only remember what you looked like: long, straight, light brown hair with matching eyes, light skin, circle-shaped head... kind of like the girl in your header except no glasses. I think you were brushing or playing with your hair and trying to tell me something... yeah, that's all I remember. It was pretty cool! :D
