Change can happen within us only with our willingness, persistence and audacity to make it happen.
How others see you is not important,
important is how YOU see yourself.
A turning point has come in my life,
which requires moving;
from my comfort;
to where there is distress.
And I am giving rambling speech to myself,
leaving no stone unturned,
preparing for the worst, and the best.
They met again,
he looked the same.
both from the inside and outside.
His innocent eyes spoke volume,
brown eyes that looked tired
’cause of the never ending pain,
and constant change of the game;
sunshine and cold which toughened him throughout the course
You see, it was difficult for him to be away.
Every night, when the lights went off
and the warden commanded everyone to sleep,
he counted sheep.
He had two options by his side: to wander off his mind in the fields of sheep grazing
or think about his mom and dad.
Former was easier, it didn’t take him much to do
Two years, he counted sheep.
No phone calls, no bedtime stories.
Mom and dad were far away.
No contact to build ’cause it was his worst fate.
they did not have any other option, but to sent him away.
He was a spoiled brat, according to him.
But was he?
Or a neglected child;
who threw tantrums to gain love and attention of his only loved ones.
Have you ever gone to an Opera house and listened to the Opera singers, giving you the highs and lows of a note, with music backing up, making you feel like you are flying slowly upwards and downwards?
You get the feeling of getting dissolved in the air leaving pixie dust behind.
Or if not opera singers, have to ever listened to a violin playing soothing music, or a cello or a piano or any other music instrument?
If you have, you could associate with the feeling I am talking about.
Music makes you feel happy and content. Even neuroscience claims that singing or humming reduces stress to a great extent.
As I addressed my state in my previous blog , I found a way to concentrate more on my writing and get rid of my hopeless irregularities. I could get more satisfactory thoughts by Rhythm writing, that’s right, that is what I call it.
So what is Rhythm Writing?
It is not a major thing, but it changed my perception of doing things, increased my pace and helped me in focusing more on my work.
All I did was, plug in my earphones, opened YouTube while I opened my blog and started writing the thoughts I was getting at that moment while the soothing instrumental played in my ears.
I know, for many it may sound absurd but it worked for me.
As the rhythm and the beats struck my ear drums, it gave me a sensation of euphoria but at the same time, a feeling of content.
A feeling that, everything is fine and I am doing okay.
The key is, to listen to sole music, no lyrics, just the instrumental.
‘Cause when you listen yo core music, you tend to introspect through all the things that means the most to you, you think about the person you love the most, the events that made you happy or sad or angry or changed your emotional state. This is why it is effective, ’cause it tugs at your heartstrings.
The reason why I was under performing (as I state it), I was bounding myself to certain things. I know discipline is good, but if you don’t feel free, what’s the use of it!
and the beats I am talking about, helped me to know what my boundaries were, I could introspect well.
You know, it’s okay sometimes to change your decisions, to ward them off, till they are for your betterment.
and this rhythm writing not only helped me with music, but my studies or any activity which I was indulging into.
Everyone has their own way of focusing on things, I discovered mine.
if you haven’t discovered yours yet, you can always try this one out.
and if you have, please share yours here.
Till then, stay safe, be happy.
