Your Life's Soundtrack

As music is such an important part of my life, I tend to incorporate general musical attributes into my everyday thinking. Anyone who knows basic music theory knows that you need three notes to create a chord. Take, for instance, a “C Major” chord; you need a C, E, and a G. This is your basic “happy” sounding chord sound. If you wanted to play a “C Minor” chord, you would play a C, Eb, and a G. This is your basic “sad” sounding chord. As you can see, for both chords, you use a C and a G. The choice is up to you in choosing an E or an Eb to make it “happy” or “sad” sounding.

The same is true in any situation or circumstance you may come across in your personal or professional life, your physical or spiritual life, your day to day activities or long term goals. It is your choice to create a “happy” chord or a “sad” chord. Choose wisely, my friends! These chords create your life’s soundtrack – what do others hear when they think of you?
