Music is so important in my life, because it's one thing that has always been there. I was fortunate to grow up in a home where there was always music playing and I think it makes me a better person to this day. I have a fonder appreciation for music, lyrics, stories, people...and I attribute it to music.
We have music for every occasion, every emotion, every aspect of our lives. To attempt to think of a life without music is to attempt to imagine something completely impossible. Now that every inch of my life has been submerged in music, I don't want to go without it, and I must make sure that my loved ones have the same opportunities that I have when it comes to being able to enjoy music completely and totally.
In the grandest of gestures and simplest of routines, music works it's way into my life, and I make a point to include it. I make lengthy mix CDs for others so I can express how I feel when the words don't come. I post songs to my friend's Facebook walls to share the passion and excitement of a new song. Whether I have headphones or a CD in the CD player, it's always there. It fills my car every time I go somewhere, making everyday drives a different experience each time the song changes. Although I don't have a musically talented bone in my body, it's about the feelings that I feel when the music begins. It changes me.
Music has had such a profound impact on my life, one that no one should live without. Music, to me, means happiness. Balance. Simplicity. Joy. Freedom. Music means to me more than I could ever try to express. I can't imagine a world without it. I think that music has helped me discover who I am as well as help me create myself. I think it will always do that for me. I think music makes me more...me.
