Play your own symphony!


Do you want to be inspired? Inspiration is all around and comes in many different ways, many different flavors. This inspiration came from a favorite old t-shirt and reminded me of an afternoon where everyone was enjoying the dance of music and lightheartedness. It brought to mind Mozart who would be walking along and a symphony would just start playing in his head. He’d start whistling it then he’d go home, write it down and fill the world with his musical genius.

What if you had a symphony playing inside you that reflected your true self, your genius? Imagine for a moment what it would be like. Would it be described as a bold brave sound or perhaps a delicate intricately nuanced piece? Maybe it would be a complex interweaving of themes or natural flowing harmonies.

Symphonies, like people’s lives, are a very complex interweaving of themes, melodies, harmonies, instruments, and interpretations. We each have our special genius inside of us – what we do exceptionally well and how we shine. We each come into this world with a unique wiring, a way of seeing things and a way of being. We can all be inspired and inspiring. Sometimes it’s clouded over by expectations and programs we’ve downloaded from others or our own fears. Would you like to let your brilliance shine through – to remember your joy, passion and gifts and to live a life full of vision and purpose?

Start with playing your symphony. Start humming with playfulness and exploration. Start with a couple of notes of what you love, what brings you joy, what feeds you. Start with the beat of your own heart or the rhythm of your breathing. Start with your feet on the ground and the cadence of your walk. Start with music you love and make a playlist. Start anywhere, in anyway, and get creative with playful curiosity. The key is to start playing with it!

Mine you ask? My symphony would be innovative and unfold harmoniously, inviting you in with a sometimes playful, sometimes inspiring integration of themes and instruments that aren’t normally put together and yet somehow their synergy creates a wonderful, unexpectedly beautiful whole – something completely different than anything else you’ve ever heard.

What’s your symphony?

Drumsound rises on the air, its throb my heart. A voice inside the beat says, “I know you’re tired, but come. This is the way.”  Rumi
