Everybody needs a night of escape. That method of escape is different for everyone. Maybe it is to choose a weekend to sleep in; or purchasing a new outfit. I love to be inspired and I love to be around people who feel the same way. Darius Rucker is an incredibly encouraging and inspirational song writer. I recently saw him in concert and I can honestly say that I gained much more enjoyment from the experience than I ever have from buying a new outfit. A friend and I were both listening to the incredible lyrics that were seemingly speaking directly to us. It was joyful. There is something awesome about an arena being filled with thousands of people who are all unified in their desire to listen to the joyful music of an inspirational artist. I truly feel music.
I believe that as I have gotten older, I am learning that there are songs that speak to almost every life event. I know I truly listen to music now. No longer is it just about the beats. I believe there is a difference between hearing and listening. I love listening to an inspirational artist and realizing that I am humming the music throughout the day. I would love to hear from who else has a favorite artist that helps them to feel inspired. In the car the other day, the song, “I Want to be Somebody” began playing seemingly at the perfect time. It was right when I needed a bit of further solidification regarding my purpose. I know that while there are many people who are in sales; my position is to support and to help others who are going through there own medical issues.
While I am not a psychologist, I do bring first hand experience to the table. While most patients welcome me into their rooms once they have heard my story; there are always a few who are in pain and want nothing to do with the idea of somebody offering support. What I have to remind myself of is that people are different and sometimes the fact that they are not welcoming may have more to do with their state of mind than the job that I am doing. I would love to hear from any who are familiar with a business that relates to people. As always I thank you very much.
