A Sought Out Musician’s Life

I have lived my entire life as a musician. As a matter of fact, my mother always says that she used to hear me doing beats even when I was still in her belly. As a child I was exposed to different musical instruments, enrolled in a music school, and do many things to my satisfaction. However, it seems that my passion is really in singing.

Being in a band gave me the opportunity to live the life I want. I never looked for material gain, or stressed my life into seeking riches. I just wanted to sing. This is the satisfaction that I have found when I and my peers decided to gather together to form a band. From time to time, I play instruments such as keyboard and drums, but mostly I do front acts.

My Journey

That was when I realized that being a musician is not all just singing and belting out high notes. I started receiving bookings, performing in different hotels. Little did I know, I have started making a name in the music industry. Well, not that I want to be part of the showbiz world, but there are just times when I meet people and they start telling me that they saw me perform in a certain hotel.

Later on, I started to consider the way I look. Being a singer/musician comes with a lot of privileges and benefits, that’s a fact. However, it also came with a responsibility, that is, to take good care of myself. Everytime I go to the beach, I make sure that I look good. This involves making sure that I go to the beach in my bikini without any flaws whatsoever. This is why I find hair remedy products so helpful. Unless I want to end up being bashed in social media, I need to make sure that I am not bash-worthy to others.

Aside from the hairless system products that I maintain, I also make sure that I strut an extra positive vibe. Well, who knows? I might make it big someday. For now, I am very satisfied with what I am doing. I sing, I play, and some people know me. They appreciate my talent. Wherever my feet take me into my musical journey, I am willing to gladly oblige.

As what they always say, if you love your job, you are not working at all. For me, music is my life. I don’t look at it as a means of earning. My passion allowed me to live, and I am very thankful of that. The best part about this is that I am living the life I have always wanted to. For that, I am happy.

Keeping Music Fresh

I am around music all day. Everywhere I go I hear music. Typically most people take in music during their commutes or maybe even at home. But I consume music all day long. During the commute, and then for the bulk of my work day I am always listening to music.

My motivation and reason for listening to music is rarely for pleasure though. I mean I do find it enjoyable, but that is not often the main objective of the music I am listening too. Typically I am listening to evaluate a piece of music.

This can be to determine its quality, whether it is a good fit for a station or video, or even what kind of emotions it is invoking. This can be a key factor for finding the right music, at the right time, for the right situation and mood.

Since music is my passion and career, most would view my constant consumption of music as a positive thing. They would of course be correct in that assumption. However, over time I have found that as I am perpetually listening to music, it can almost lead to dulling my ear. I’m not meaning that I can’t hear, but rather the constant stream of music can slow my emotional reaction to the music. I say that I just can’t “feel” the music as well. It is almost like my senses have been dulled.

So what do I do to combat this problem? Simple strategy of taking time every day to be in a quiet state. I find this works best for me to happen during my lunch hour while drinking my new weight loss shake, that I have just found. It does not have to be dead silence, but rather void of created and produced music.

How do I achieve this? Pretty simple actually. For my lunch break I just take my meal replacement shake, IdealShape, with me up to the roof of my office building. Or if I am not in my office that day then I just find some place to sit outside. In that moment as I sip on my shake I just listen to the sounds around me. That can be traffic, city noise, birds, the busyness of people around me, or really anything. This break from music and opportunity to absorb some of the world really helps me to relax. That relaxation aids me in staying fresh when I go back to work, and more importantly helps me to stay passionate about the music I am working on.

Is anybody with me? What do you do to take a relaxing break during the day? How do you help to keep your passion for music fresh?

My Musical Confession

Good Morning Snore Solution Reviews

I love any type of music. I am not sticking to just one style or type of music. On any given day I could be jumping back and forth between several different styles. This variety is often reflected will in my music collection, but also in the playlist that I make. In fact I get the award in my office for having the most random songs on my playlist. I’ve been winning that award hands-down for about the last 3 years.

With all my love and appreciation for music I can still not seem to really make any good music on my own. I can not plan an instrument, at least not well, and am not going to wow anyone with my singing. It’s a bit odd in my profession to not be also good at creating music. So many of my co-workers are also musicians themselves on the side. Most as just a hobby or creative outlet, but some have even been paid for their talents.

Not the case for me. It is really sad because I really do wish that I could create music. This has become a really big longing or desire for me, but it just does not seem to be happening.

Even my snoring is apparently a miserably awful sound. It was so bad that my husband decided to research a snoring solution, and after reading several Good Morning Snore Solution reviews he bought me one as a present. I could handle the sweet suggestion, and was actually a little embarrassed. However, this solution is actually an anti snoring mouthpiece, which while it corrects my snoring, it makes it impossible to talk. But that could have been part of his thinking.

Now, I know what you are thinking, everyone can make music it just takes some practice and dedication. I would completely agree with that. When using the proper teacher, and having the right devotion, I think most people can learn to play an instrument. You can even learn how to play and instrument online.

No doubt however, that some just have natural born musical ability, and for those individuals picking up musical instruments comes really quickly and easily for them. I obviously do not have this natural born ability, and I guess I am not committed enough to devote the time needed to practice and develop the skill.

So for now I will just be enjoying and working with the amazing music that other talented musicians.
