Great Minds are Young

Posts Tagged ‘mood

A lot of times I feel out of inspiration! I wonder what to write or what to say and find it hard to be creative, then I look around me and smile!
When I look around I realize that every single human being, plant, animal, scenery, natural element is a great source of inspiration. It is enough to just really look around, contemplate and open my heart and mind to start ‘receiving’!
We are never out of inspiration, we’re sometimes just not in the mood!

I got a good advice from a good old friend the other day. When feeling down, when frustrated or disappointed, when things go really wrong and you hate what’s happening around you or to you, make sure you do something good for yourself; change something positively in you. Never surrender to bad mood, overeating, overreacting, depression or just carelessness; just focus on changing something in you to the better; just love yourself no matter what…

It really helps; it actually does wonders… Think about it…

“Music’s the Medicine of my Mind!” When I read this on the wall of 14-year-old Lebanese Jennifer Al Ghoul I felt curious, happy and proud… Whether quoting John Logan or saying this from the heart, Jenny expressed her feelings, thoughts, and appreciation of music in the best way she could. Being a guitar player, and constantly trying to compose her own music, Jenny seeks comfort, consolation, inspiration and joy in music.

The great attachment of this young generation to music in general is impressive, but do all young people truly appreciate real music, and try to understand and interpret it? It is true that music has a special significance to each and every person, but does this generation have a proper musical education and culture? Do youngsters take advantage of the benefits of “real” music?

Research has shown that children that are actively involved with music have better academic results, their concentration ability is much better, their body control is stronger and their self-esteem is considerably higher.

Among many other functions, Music is a mood regulator, spirit uplifter, creativity booster and a great healer. Music is indeed the medicine of our mind…
