Put together a a musical playlist of songs that describe your life, including what you hope your future entails.
What is so wonderful about a musical playlist describing a life is that it can be anything, it can be a variety of different genre's or a singular genre.
I would have a variety such as Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mozart I am awful with song titles, movement titles, concerto's and the like so bear with me when I only provide the composer. My memory is sorely lacking, perhaps that's why Barbra Streisand's Memories would be a little apropos at this moment.
I would also have the group Big Country, the twins who put out my beloved "500 miles" would definitely be in there, Pink Floyd and The Who would occupy a big spot. I can't forget Black Eyed Peas, Deelite, the Bee Gee's, Cold Play, Sade, Adele, Simply Red, Traci Chapman, Sade.
Just give me music to listen to and I am happy. I love when my head starts to bop and sway, it's all good when the head is moving in time to a beat.
I don’t listen to much music – but I like this idea. I might have a go at making up the soundtrack of my life. It starts with ABBA and ends with – oh, at the moment the kids are constantly playing something with the lyrics “I crashed my car into the bridge: I don’t care” – so that’ would be the track for August 2013!
It could be a lot of fun making a playlist together as a family and then seeing if everyone can make their own. Music brings us together and is also great when alone.
