The Healing Power of Music
I always listened to music while at the gym or in my car as I headed home or to work. I always believe that there’s a power in music that helps us ease the burden that faces us in our lives. Personally, when I fell stressed out and I have something that I feel that should be avoided, I usually indulge myself into listening to my favorite classical hits. There is a way in which the soft thumping of the music gets to personally help me get relieved as well as gives me the courage to soldier on.
The most typical example happened two years ago when I lost my wife to a road accident as a result of a drunk driver. We were heading home after having a fun day at a picnic when that happened. That day I lost my wife as well as got pretty injured – some 26 stitches on my chest can attest to that.
During my hospitalization, I never worried much about me, but I was in deep melancholy following the demise of my wife. Though I too had escaped death narrowly, I couldn’t fathom that I was going to start my life afresh all over again.
Music can help You Forget Painful Moments
At the local hospital where I stayed for almost ten days, they had this life band group coming over to soothe the patients. It really worked miracles as well as helping me get over the boredom. Whenever the band showed up to play their music I felt this relieve of anxiety and pain of the loss of my wife. As a matter of facts, it made me forget the pain that was deep inside my heart.
I felt less stressed and that gave me time to think of the next strategy that I was going to take. It helped me feel some ray of hope as the band played some inspirational songs to help us understand that all was not lost and that by being alive there is always a second chance to be happy. I know it is not that easy. Of course you can’t completely get over the pain; it is not easy to get over the loss of a loved one. Theirs is always that remembrance that may itch from time to time but at least with less pain in your heart you can get the right mind to focus on something useful in your life.
Music helped me get a New Start
After I left the hospital, I knew that the best thing to do to help me recover and get back to normal life was to listen to some cool music whenever my mind wandered off. I knew that I had the right to grief over my loss, but the best way to get over all that was to listen to some music – something I passionately did for quite some time.
Within no time, I was able to dream of a better future and get back to work on our small business that my wife and I had established earlier. Within a year I got back to the dating scene and God blessed me with my current lovely wife and mother of two.
