I love music for many different reasons and for different environments and moods. That may be the biggest reason why I love music; it allows me to have a different relationship with it depending on what I’m doing or how I feel. When I am driving home after a day’s work in rush hour traffic, music helps me wind down and relax. When I’m working out, music motivates me, which is my greatest love for music.
The right music, is inspiring with its lyrics and motivating with its beat. When I’m tired and not really into working out, music lifts me up and gets me excited about working out. When I’m on a run and not giving it my all, music helps me set a pace/cadence and carries me through. Music is there for me when I need it. Music is magical in that people can listen to several genres and get the same message, inspiration and motivation. Depending on the day, the workout or the run, I listen to different types of music. Some days/workouts I’ll listen to hardcore rock, while others I’ll listen to old school rap or fresh jazz. That is an amazing thing about music, it’s there for me when and how I need it, as cheesy as that sounds.
If I need music to lift me up, if I need it to relax, if I need it to set a mood at a dinner party, if I need it to be a background distraction…its there. In a life filled with constant change, music is a constant. Music means so much to so many people on so many different levels. When going through a tough stretch, music helps get people through it. When celebrating, music is a companion who is happy to be along for the ride.
All that to say, I Love Music because it inspires and motivates!
