    Music provides a soundtrack to our lives. For me, music is like a post it. Each memory has post its' attached. Some are photos, some are songs, some are words. Either of these can trigger the memory. But I used to love the lyric too. They had meaning. These days I don't even understand the lyric.

    #13 Yeah @Suzanne Music is the universal language we all know, this connection like you said does not undersatnd labels I never connect to a song or a piece because of the artist or brand or a band it's the Music they present and share with us helps us connect.

    Music is calming, music brings people together, There is no such thing as Millenials, or Gen x or Boomers in Music, Music does not understand labels. Music is universal

    Thank you @Sushmita Thakare Jain for writing about a topic close to my heart. I grew up with music and knew that music would be part of my life always. So you can imagine how I felt when I discovered the field of Music Therapy back in 1981! I am happy to say that I have had the good fortune to practice as a therapist since. I'm glad you mentioned Daniel Levitin. Both his books, This Is Your Brain On Music and The World in Six Songs are must reads. As I went through the music you posted, it reminded me of how I ask some of the individuals I work with to create their autobiography through music; to identify the music that was significant from as far back as they can remember and to move chronologically through their life. The music time lines that the individuals have created have been tremendous. Thanks again for your post Sushmita.

    "There's music in the sighing of a reed;
    There's music in the gushing of a rill;
    There's music in all things, if men had ears:
    Their earth is but an echo of the spheres."
    ~Lord Byron.
    "Music, when soft voices die,
    Vibrates in the memory —
    ~Percy Bysshe Shelley.
    "Music—the rich mastery of the gloomier emotions of our nature; Music—that seems to use the ears as a conductor to the heart, and teaches us more distinctly than any abstract philosophy can do, how mysteriously intimate is the union between soul and body—has to a great extent shared that honour; for Music and Poetry have been, and still are, always to continue inseparably, indissolubly allied..." ~Frederick Hinde, "Poetry", a lecture delivered in London on the evening of April 8, 1858.

    #9 Would like to admit @Ken Boddie I am a bathroom singer who keeps HUMMING or SINGING whenever I can i agree our tastes may vary but it's the string of music which will connect us furhter conecting our emotions.

    Music definitely impacts our daily lives, Sushmita, and can instantly bring back forgotten memories. As you say, music can be fully enjoyed without necessarily paying a musical instrument, but, participation in its playing or in singing as a group with harmony, seems to increase the enjoyment greatly, at least for me. I find, however, that I have become more discriminating in my musical tastes with passage of time (i.e. being an old fuddy-duddy and more set in my ways) and less inclined to enjoy being bombarded on radio by the 'flavour of the month'. As I suspect @Randy Keho may have been, however, I was a Beatles fanatic in my earlier years and, in my case, not just "Twist and Shout", but almost anything by Lennon and McCartney, gets the 'crank up the volume' treatment. 🎼 🗣🎙 What say you Mr Guitar Man (@Kevin Pashuk)? 🎸

    I love how you emphasize that music is not only entertainment, but also a kind of therapy. It only makes sense when we see that music - and art in general - is one of the most widely used ways to change our moods, and even expand our consciousness.

    Music is food for the soul. I, too, can enjoy a sad song as much as a joyful song.
    Sad songs don't get me down, but joyful songs can certainly lift my spirits, no matter what mood I'm in.
    When I hear the Beatles' version of "Twist and Shout," the volume immediately jumps to 10 and the spirit is uplifted.
    Thanks for a great buzz. @Sushmita Thakare Jain

    Excellent post @Sushmita Thakare Jain! I love how music can sometimes bring back a memory so vividly and clearly that an unexpected rush of intense emotions can take one's breath away. It is a magnificent and powerful energy that can be beautifully delicate, soothing and comforting. It can also bring about or intensify feelings of; excitement, happiness, gratitude, sadness, pride, determination, panic, heartache, loneliness, patriotism and anger. Music can tell a story without words and express thoughts that sometimes can not be conveyed by words alone. Music can inspire hope when all was believed to be lost. It is one of life's most precious and awe-inspiring gifts. I have a deep respect and admiration for music and I could not begin to imagine life without it!

    #78 Thank you @Anees Zaidi. The more time that passes since i wrote this post, the more I consider the symbolism of 'me'. If we believe that we each have a purpose on this planet, then why should 'me' be a person's passion, if you consider that we are all seeking our purpose, our reason for existing. We can only find that fulfillment by coming to terms with the fact that the purpose is about the 'me' in each of us. Does that make sense? :-)
    Anees Zaidi
    19/08/2016 #78 Anees Zaidi
    'My passion is me' a very strong statement @Pamela L. Williams. Your statement may provided meaning to why I am here, why I exist, what is purpose of my existence? This is my passion to grow my 'self' that may provide answer to all these questions. A great post with fabulous thoughts. Thanks for sharing your wisdom.

    #60 Don't know how I missed your comments Lisa! My apologies for the delay. Yes, my daughter is the driver of my life. Nothing comes before her and her well-being. I won't be having grandchildren through her! She has already informed me that that is something that she just doesn't see herself doing. I'm okay with that, plus the fact her mate has a daughter in college so any grandparent feelings I need to fulfill I can bestow upon her! She is more than happy to have another grandparent; more gifts! LOL!

    #68 Sounds exactly like what I wrote David! I like helping people, especially through whatever position I'm holding at any given time. Because I like exploring new areas I'll discover things that others may not have considered. I love sharing that knowledge with my co-workers. If something I've learned can help others do their jobs better or faster then I love it!

    My passion is making a difference in other people's lives. As such, I lead by following.

    Depending on the needs of those who ask for my help, my passion, and my need for knowledge, adapt to each new situation.

    Phrased that way, it sounds very similar to you, @Pamela L. Williams

    #64 I'll watch video Wayne! thanks for sharing. Here's the issue with my career to date; the why has been my family. I took the positions that best worked for the well-being of my daughter and myself. Now my daughter has finished with school ( 2 degrees) and I can start focusing on finding my passions, which will be the foundation of my whys. Maybe a bit late in life to be doing that but when it comes to your children; you do what you have to do to make life good for them!
    Wayne Yoshida
    15/08/2016 #65 Wayne Yoshida
    Here's another thought question for you - or anyone else when talking about passions: If money were no object, would you be doing what you are doing (work-wise) for free?
    Wayne Yoshida
    15/08/2016 #64 Wayne Yoshida
    Pamela -
    Nice buzz. All comments are interesting, but some are not focused on career management/job interviewing.

    Here is something to consider: In terms of "career management" - Understand your "why" -- why do you do what you do - why do you look forward to going to work and doing your job? If you are working with your passion - everything else follows.

    Take a look at this TEDx talk from Simon Sinek, and think about this from a career management point of view. Also watch the follow-up video called "Building Trust."

I love how you were able to figure it out, your passion is you! You gave a lot of great examples and you can keep adding to your passion's list. Thanks for sharing this!

    #56 @Ben Pinto if you share a buzz (which is what you find on your homepage) like a video eg, you can only share to one hive, same goes with posts, unless they are your own. You can share your own posts to up to 3 hives. I'm curious too, did you post a link from the page back to LI or share from beBee to LI from beBee's sharing tool? I saw the post (thanks by the way!) and I did see the blank box . It allows a person to click on it but no image is there. Not sure how that happened.
