It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow.
I know! The commercial aspect of this day can be nauseating. But, at the same time, it’s a great opportunity to show gratitude for the love we all experience in our lives.
In the nineties, the band “Wet Wet Wet” sang “Love is all around”. There’s definitely truth to that.
Whatever our life circumstances at the moment, we love and are loved!
Music helps us to express and experience our EMOTIONS. A great love song can help us to express how we feel!
Music also has this incredible ability of attaching to our MEMORIES. Often our most monumental memories are triggered by listening to a song. Has that ever happened to you?
You’ll be at the shops, buying your groceries, and suddenly a song will come on the radio. It will trigger an intense memory of where you were when you heard it, what you were doing, who you were with. Often, it will also trigger an emotion – how you felt at the time!
As parents, we have the incredible privilege of loving and caring for the little people in our lives.
So, let’s fill our children’s lives with musical memories. Positive, happy memories attached to music that will live on in their sub-concious for the rest of their lives. Memories that will remind them of fun times from their childhood when they experienced love and happiness.
Sing to your children often! Dance around with them and cuddle them while you do!
Let music help you to express your love for them!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
