When I think of all the things I do to promote happiness in my life, adding music to my days is the simplest to apply. All I have to do is press ‘play.’ Author Gyles Brandreth states in his book The 7 Secrets of Happiness: A Reluctant Optimist’s Guide, that people who listen to music regularly are just plain happier.
One of the great gifts of courage in my life came when I took some guitar lessons, started putting my poetry into song, and began recording. The happiness quotient was nose-on-my-face obvious: I loved to sing, I loved to write, and when I took some small steps toward doing something I’d always wanted to do, I got immediately happier. I hope this music inspires you to bravely do what you are called to do with your creative gifts. Link below to listen:
