A lot of people think happiness is about saying “yes” to the right stuff. Well, that’s one side of a coin. There are many things we say “yes” to that we really should be saying “no” to. Here is what I posted on my Twitter handle the other day – “I know the power of saying yes to everything in the beginning but at some point it has to stop. You have to get clear on where you are going, then start saying no to anything that isn’t that.

Been a while since I wrote Worded Magic in my Lyrics category... 8 months to be exact Lol. So here I am sharing the power of music when words fall short to explain anything; music finds our soul... Discovering a new song that I connect with or that evokes a memory, fills me with a feeling that’s hard to describe. Music brings waves of emotion different to every person that hears it, but what I love the most is when someone is so touched by a lyric or a rhythm, that they choose to share it with the world. I have a very eclectic taste in music, like so many of us do, from R&B and Hip Hop, to good old Taylor Swift and from Metallica to Bruce Springsteen, but any song that truly touches me, leaves an imprint that I love to share. There is no better feeling for me than discovering a new artist or a new song that I can listen to on repeat for days at a time. Because, for some reason, that song appeals to me at that moment in my life, even that week in time, and it helps to match or ease my mood. Whether you found your favorite artist accidentally online in a suggestion feed or if it was playing in your favorite coffee shop, if it means something to you then it’s worth sharing with someone else too.
A poem for my restless soul.
