Life is a song, and it’s up to you and your heart to write the lyrics.
If you had a soundtrack for your life, what would it sound like? What would the lyrics and music be for the opening credits, the innocence of childhood, teenage puppy love, fighting, making up, breaking up, mental breakdown, wedding, birth of a child, and end credits?
Chances are the beginning would be lovely, full of lullabies and light hearted songs.
Then, someone misses a note, or misses a cue and everything moves into a minor key, and the lyrics respond in kind. Angst, loneliness, heartbreak…the stuff of great ballads and country music songs.
But throughout the soundtrack, we’re the ones actually writing the lyrics and music, aren’t we? As the composer of our lives, we’re the Beethovens and Mozarts. We’re the Rogers and Hammersteins. We’re the Carol Kings and John Lennons. Our song is completely up to us what it’s going to sound like.
We spend so much time going over and over the past in our heads. And while remembering the past is very beneficial at times so we don’t take the same missteps, it is…well…in the past. We can never get it back or relive it. That song has already been written, composed and performed.
But the future! The future is full of promise and hope. It’s waiting for us to begin putting notes and lyrics on a page..full of the sharps and flats that will determine how we will sing and dance from today forward.
So what sort of symphony does your future hold?
