Today I am thankful for music.
I have always loved music. I love all types of music. Even country isn’t so bad. I love listening to music, I love playing music on the piano even more (and hopefully other instruments one day). I love singing, even when I make up my own key to sing in. I love the way music has a way of being serious and a way of being fun. I love going to the symphony, and I love rocking out to some N’Sync with the windows rolled down and a good friend in the passenger seat. I love how music seems to bring people together more than tear people apart. I love that even though I gave up listening to the radio in the car, I often find myself with a song in my heart to keep myself going. I love how music has the power to change the way you think and the way you feel. I love how there is always that one song that never fails to pull you out of your dark place. I love how music gives you such freedom to express yourself, whether it is in writing your own or by simply serenading yourself in the shower.
And whenever I think of expressing myself in song I think of this scene and it makes me happy:
