It’s always fun to hear people belt out a favorite song. It’s even more hilarious when you sit down with friends and try to figure out what certain lyrics say, without looking them up. Yet where lyrics get more fascinating is in how we bond memories and emotions to songs and create our own personal meaning. For most of us, this truly is a big part of the magic of music.
The same can be said for any kind of writing. We read words and interpret their individual meaning for us. When I write, my role is not to tell anyone what to do. I’m still trying to figure out what’s right for me. While occasionally, someone tries to put me into a more authoritarian role, that is never going to happen. Rather, my essays each reflect thoughts about what I believe is necessary to become a better person. I write to put myself in a position to walk the talk. I share because by making my thoughts public I’d be pretty darn embarrassed if I didn’t keep trying to practice my own philosophy. It’s a little game of self-pressure that I put upon myself. I don’t always get it right. But that’s OK. I will keep trying. And…you’re all welcome to join me in the process of finding your own meaning! 😉
