think it would be nice if more people sang. Even if
someone doesn't have a great voice, the simple act of
singing is an act that can bring a lot of life to the
world, a lot of spirit, a lot of hope. I love to
sing, and my voice isn't all that great--but that's fine
with me. I'm not trying to make a living from my
voice, just trying to enjoy myself and let music add its
touch to my life.
don't need reasons to sing. We don't have to wait
for parties or karaoke nights or special situations.
We just have to want to let out the songs that are in
us. They may be songs that we've made up ourselves,
or songs that someone else wrote--it truly doesn't
matter. We sing because we have songs in our hearts,
and we sing to lighten our spirits and we sing to lighten
the spirits of those people with whom we share our
lives. Just as a bird doesn't need to have a reason
to sing, neither do we.
don't have to have answers to problems in lives to sing
our songs, either. Sometimes the songs may not even
be all that musical in nature--they can be the results of
us using our greatest talents in the ways that make the
best use of them. We don't need to have reasons to
use our talents, either--we can use them just because we
have them, and each use of them is a great celebration of
the gifts we have.
have your songs, just as I have mine. What are your
songs, and what does it take to make you sing them?
The more you share those songs with the world, the
brighter you make this world of ours, and the lighter you
make the loads for the people whose paths cross
yours. Isn't that reason enough to share your
personal songs much more often than you do already?
