Finding your own 'groove' seems to be the general theme I have observed from various conversations with friends recently. It's a bit like searching through different radio stations. Some like a bit of Classic FM and some like a bit of Heart FM. Some will have changed from Radio 1 to Radio 4. It's all music no better or worse than another (although some of you may disagree!) You might prefer how one station presents and packages certain tunes to another, but essentially it's the same song, just a different frequency.
Classical music is really soothing and relaxing for me at home, but no good for me whilst driving as it sends me into a trance! I used to listen to hard house music back in my university days (aka 'duff duff' music) but now it hurts my ears and it would give me a headache! But I knew back then it served its purpose and was right at that time in my life as I had a great time.
So what am I rambling on about? Well, we can all be guilty of judging other people's choices and beliefs on some level and can become distracted by what everyone else should be doing and forget about what we believe in and BE that person we want to see in the world (I know I've been there). We may find our choices and beliefs being challenged, and it will change over time as we 'grow up' and that's okay too, it's all part of the life learning experience.
And that's just it...life is a series of experiences. Good experiences, bad experiences and some middle of the road ones...no right or wrong, no better or worse, no right time, or wrong time. People and situations will come and go...the soundtrack to your life will change as you change
There will be things that resonate with you more than others and maybe just at different times to others too...so perhaps we can all accept that other people's life path will be different to yours. Everyone has their own journey to make, their own life lessons to learn. We can share our favourite music playlists with other people, we may even create our own tunes, but don't be surprised if the dance floor empties out for some of your 'hip happenin' tunage'. Be happy with your own song choices...it's just not for them, maybe not now, maybe never.
So I encourage you to all find a 'groove' you are comfortable with and enjoy dancing to the soundtrack of your life, there will always be awesome souls who will be dancing with you. It just might be with people you didn't expect!
Right...off to do the funky chicken dance....
