Every song means life, passion, love, and stories told in lyrics.
What is life without music?
The banning of music would mean the banning of all it’s beauty and joy.
Music is my ears best friend.
It has comforted me through my darkest days.
Songs lyrics give me something to believe in, to give me hope and faith in a world that has no light of hope I just put on my headphones and play the music that feeds my soul, that reminds me always to keep on going in spite of the challenges in front of me.
I have a million favorite songs that play inside my head day and night they keep me company whenever I feel lonely and scared.
Spreading a good song is like spreading positivity into the world.
As an introvert it let’s me express myself when no one is willing to listen to me. It gives me a chance let myself be free and to get rid of anything that is bothering me inside.
I love Taylor Swift’s new album 1989 I have been listening to her album non-stop:) That says how much I am a Swiftie:) Ever since I heard her latest single off of the album, “Shake It Off” has become my anthem song for shaking all of the negative comments that others around me say about me. This is a song that I wish I could of heard when I was a pre-teen in middle school and a teenager in high school because then I would of not gave much importance on what others said or thought about me. Listening to this song reminded me back of the days when I would feel insecure and self-conscious about myself and my image. Letting all of those negative comments seep inside me really created this fear inside of me that would not let me try new things that I wanted to do, on other words I would form doubts inside my head, doubts and fears that would not let me be the person who I really wanted to be.
Upon discovering Taylor Swift’s music, I have come to grow closer to music as a positive therapy and has nurtured in me a love for country music because before I knew about Taylor Swift I did not like Country music a lot because I thought that country music was only for old people. Now I totally respect and appreciate country music and even have some favorite country music artists like: The Band Perry, Kenny Chesney, Danielle Bradberry, Hunter Hayes, and others that would take time to name.
Whenever I hear her previous albums and now hearing “1989” they are like listening to songs with each a story behind each one of them, and it almost makes me want to write a story about each of her songs, but for that I would have to think really carefully how each story would go. But it would be fun to write a story based on her songs:) All of her songs are so full of power and meaning that it is no wonder her albums have sold millions of copies worldwide.
“These songs were once about my life. They are now about yours.”
-Taylor Swift (forward section of her 1989 album)
Reading that quote really helped me realize that she is right, all these songs she writes and creates are the precious gifts of words emotions that she likes to share with all of us because she believes that everyone else can relate to each song. These songs are about life and about learning from our mistakes and just embracing the changes happening to us in a positive way. This album mainly means to embrace who you truly are and to shake off negativity around you, to not let it get to you.
I always like going to Sunday Church Mass at the beautiful St. Angela Merici church in Brea, California; although I live in La Habra, It still is not far from where I live which is great because eversince I took my first communion and confirmation class when I was 20 years old (yeah did not do it when I was a young girl) I wanted to choose a church were I would belong and feel a part of it, and at the same time grow on my Catholic faith, and Jesus more, so upon discovering the Sunday Mass services at St. Angela Merici, I discovered that the services are so full of joy, hope, and faith. Their music during mass always give me a sence of peace and joy. The speeches from the Deacons always make me think and reflect deeply on my own life, and what I can do to improve the next time.
I used to think that Sunday Church Masses were rather boring and would make me fall asleep, but now I truly try to focus on the Mass activities and on Jesus because He is the sole reason why I am still living and will not let go off me, no matter what.
