“If everyone started off the day singing, just think how happy they’d be.” – Lauren Myracle
This morning, as I designed and made another of my handmade pieces, I had the TV on and a music channel playing. It just so happened that this particular channel was playing ALL my favourite songs one after the other. Result!
I sang along while I worked and I realised how much joy I get from singing. I used to sing ALL the time – in the shower, in the car, as I was going about daily tasks – but through the struggle and dark times of living with a chronic illness, as my energy and vitality depleted, so did my desire to sing.
As I sat on my own at the dining room table this morning, pinning and stitching, I began to sing first one song, and then another. And with each song I sang, the happier I felt. I honestly had so much fun and I’ve been bobbing around on cloud 9 for the rest of the day.
The thing I’ve come to realise, as I type this post, is that not only was I happy because I was singing, but I was also singing because I was (and still am) happy. It’s like a magic happy circle!
You should try it sometime! 🙂
