Music does bring people together. It's the only time we are all united.
We hear the same words, dance to the same beat and hear the same music.
Maybe that's why everyone loves it. Is it the freedom or is it the unison or is it that music has the ability to take us back to places with in a instant. It allows us to dream, reminisce and just be.
I totally get why you can heal people through music.
Because behind every person their is really just a child. A creation of what we were exposed to growing up. If you think about your pet peeves or what makes you happy I guarantee you whether you know it or not it relates back to when you were a child.
Sometimes it makes you sad and sometimes it makes you happy and thats life. It's how we choose to process it and hopefully use it to our advantage.
You know we you see someone your entire life and for that whole time you think they are perfect, they can do no wrong. Because in your eyes they are perfect.
Then when you get older and wiser and time passes and 'things' happen you realise they aren't perfect and they do make mistakes.
For some stupid reason you feel disappointed in them and you think they have changed.
Then you realise maybe they haven't changed that you are the one that has changed and grown.
For the first time you are viewing things for how they really are! It's up to you to forgive them within yourself.
They really haven't done anything wrong it's who they have always been. We just didn't see it before because WE chose NOT too.
As much as it has hurt you and that's OK. We live and learn and we move on. It is really only a problem if you don't work through and understand it. Please don't pretend it hasn't happened because it has and it won't go away unless you work through it so you can move on.
Time is precious. Days go by, then weeks, then years. Until it's gone and as somber as that sounds it's true. So you may think that you have more important things to do but I think that's such a cop out. I think you are afraid to deal with your problems. But from the bottom of my heart I hope you do so you can live your life.
Some people don't get that chance, so for the people that do get that chance it's important we do live, laugh and enjoy life.
This is for you, my old friend who sadly didn't get that chance. You didn't even get to finish putting your groceries away! For you, your children and your family I will live my life because I have that chance too.
Thank you for the memories. I'll miss your beautiful eyes and your beautiful/cheeky smile!
