Sometimes I wonder if there are any new ideas… Ok that’s an over simplification. But really, many things in life are theme and variation. Watch this video for a striking example!
Same four chords. Hits galore.
But do you ever get stuck on putting something out there in the world because it’s already been done?
Recently I’ve been wanting to take this whole blogging thing to another level. Yet, as I receive some of the daily emails from Life Coaches/Motivators/Bloggers-extraordinaire I begin to question: Does the world really need another one?
Listening to that video, I laughed in so many places and was surprised by the number of songs that I enjoyed and would never have linked together like that. Of course that may be due to my poor musical knowledge, but let’s skim over that shall we!
What sets each song apart, is the same thing that will differentiate what you are doing. YOU! It’s what you bring to what you are doing. When you infuse your passion, your heart, your brilliance, your talent, your creativity (perhaps in this example it’s about lyrics versus chords etc), your joy – that’s what resonates with people.
Think of this in another way. Rainbows. One is brilliant. Two is… a DOUBLE RAINBOW. Which is way more than doubly awesome!
So go out today, and bring your own version of magic to what’s already been done! You might just be the next #1 HIT!
Fear is defined as an unpleasant often strong emotion. We resist unpleasant feelings, and yet these are often the times where much growth, learning and development happen. Here’s a video of a young boy overcoming his fears to much celebration. I think we would commend not only his talent but foremost his strength and courage. We admire it so much in others… so the next time you are fearing an activity perhaps instead of thinking of the unpleasant outcome recognize that you may be inspiring those around you.
Don’t let your fears stand in the way of your dreams.
As December quickly approaches, the joy of the season fills the air and Christmas spirit is all around. I am enjoying the All Christmas Music radio station (in small doses mind you but I am none the less), and have already taken in a few Holiday Movies. So I thought I would share some “oldies but goodies” to help kick start your Christmas fun!
My brother and I loved this one when we were kids. It may come under the category of ‘you can’t go back’ rather than classic, but it’s at least slightly amusing! Besides my brother got his classic line “I’ll have one with extra butter” from it! Enjoy a Claymation Christmas!!! (please click on the link. I didn’t find the whole thing on Youtube so I thought I would attach it this way to make it easier to view!)
I also came across The Snowman. I don’t believe I’ve seen it before, however it is a lovely little fantasy about a young boy’s creation coming to life. I love how music describes the conversations and drama unfolding throughout their adventure.
What are your Holiday favourites? Songs, movies or specials? I’d love to share in the spirit that makes this season so much fun!
