Daily Inspiration - January 11

Without music, life would be a mistake. Friedrich Nietzsche

Music. The spirit of song can fill our hearts with hope and inspiration. The rhythm of the song inspires us, energizes our bodies. We all have certain songs that create definite feelings within us. The rhythm of our life is our music. We chose how the rhythm will go through our actions and feelings. Sometimes we “turn off” our music in an attempt to stop feeling anything at all. We believe that if we can stop “feeling” our life might be more bearable. If only there were a switch in our heads to “turn off” our feelings (music), but there is not. The only thing that we accomplish when we try to avoid feeling is an increased sense of isolation, loneliness, and helplessness. Isn’t it time to listen to your music of life? Your music can inspire and energize you to discover alternatives that will enable you to live your life as a person rather than a patient.
