10.15.18 – Opportunity

Sometimes I go into classical music mode where all I want to listen to is Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Debussy, and a few other more modern contemporary composers…. I do that for a little while, day and night, and then I’m over it for a few months. Then I go through that phase again eventually.

(Jason tells me it’s “serial killer” music. He’s not a fan. Haha)

Well, I’m currently in my classical music phase right now.

Something about this kind of music does something to my mind though, I don’t know what it is, but it feels like my brain just soaks it up differently than it does with other kinds of music. Every note seems to go from my ears, into my brain, and then into every cell. Something about listening to this kind of music is just… invigorating. Yes, that’s the word I’m looking for.

I should dig into that …Maybe I shouldn’t 🙂

Takes me back to when I was in the marching band/ symphony in High School…. (yes, I played clarinet as you probably suspected. Haha) How I wanted to play out with passion and enthusiasm –and yet I was too scared to. I would place in 1st or second chair a lot of the time from the privately recorded tests we would take to place us, and then when it came to playing with the rest of the symphony, I didn’t play out a lot of the time! I didn’t want to be heard…uncomfortable with playing my heart out and being too passionate about it, and on the other hand, fear of accidentally making a bad sound, a mistake. What a waste of good opportunity! I sure did practice when I was alone though. Lessons learned, I suppose.

I don’t want to waste opportunities anymore though.

I can now understand why it’s so important not to waste them.

An opportunity is a gift, it’s a doorway, and we are given the key to unlock that door, open it, and then step through it.

I want to keep moving forward through each doorway as the opportunity comes.
