For years, I sang with my family at home, in church, outside, with my friends, at school…I have always loved to sing and it always seemed to be all around me.
As I have gotten older, I have had to work harder to find places to sing. And to sing with others…well, unless I join a choir, church, or musical theatre group…I have found it is missing from our society.
So…I began to write “A Melody a Day”. Being inspired by Creative Every Day, I found it was fun to write melodies (and then words) each day. Basically, each song was a bit of whatever was going on in my life that day.
From there, I began to notice that many of the songs would stay in my head…or the words would run through my mind when I needed them….AHA! These were those elusive “affirmations” I could never quite write in my journal, but in song…well, I felt freer to express the basic (sometimes mundane and insipid!) goings-on of my life.
Now, I have put the “affirmations” together and am writing more. These can be downloaded here.
I hope you will enjoy them…as I do. Simple. Daily. Affirmations in song.
