Changing the world is everyday

“Hey I enjoy making a difference to the world don’t you?” I want to change the world may be an overused statement in some ways or a wish that is not achieved. But of course life is an ever changing experience in which everyone is able to create some kind of change in so in one sense everyone is making a difference to the world by just being there.

Rather than following others create your own culture, express your own views. There are many ways to get creative out there and that doesn’t just include creating things traditionally thought of as art. You can still entertain yourself without always going back to tv. Entertain can mean “to give attention or consideration to (an idea, suggestion, or feeling)” and you do not need tv to do that.

Best to mostly avoid the status quo as it is full of followers, be a lion and not a sheep. Stand for yourself.

Try out new things, the best way is to go out into the world and explore. For that you may need to overcome fear, laziness and self limiting beliefs but it is worth it.

People naturally influence others around them and by standing for yourself you naturally make the world a better place. Your worth isn’t determined by what others think of you (though it is still good to treat others well of course). It is cool to be true to who you are.

Too much repetition in music

A large amount of music released in recent times have many repetitive notes in and are often about things like drugs, discos, desire etc. And they are very similar to each other. I just think, aren’t people bored of this stuff already?

Could this be reflecting the way many peoples lives lacking in variation hence repetition and being centered around shallow activities?  But maybe more so being about trying to numb out inner feelings with consuming music. Like that drum like rhythm that is similar in a way to hypnosis.  For some music can even become an addiction even if it is a mild one. And with more music like the type I mentioned more people are influenced into such lifestyles however small the influence may be.

Since music often had more variation within it, i’m I trying to say peoples lives were more varied in the past? Perhaps not. But I would say that at least people were not so into numbing their minds going to bars all the time and doing activities that are mind numbing. I’m sure in the past more people were in touch with nature and you can see how there is much music that reflects nature.

Though I think one of the biggest problems with today’s music is perhaps though how less money is around for music. So music producers are going to concentrate on making music they know they can sell, which pop music does quite well at.

Music is best when the composer is in line with themselves but this is quite hard to do when the composer is competing for fame.

Perhaps though it is really more about those who want the music that are leading to such music being created. As long as there is demand there will always be a supply of this type of music.

But of course there is music out there with much more variety, if you look (Perhaps not too much on the music charts). Although what music you like will be ultimately down to what kind of person you are right now and so the types of music people like varies greatly between people in the same way as there is a great variety of different people in the world.

The importance of: not caring about what others think about you and being true to yourself

Many people act desperately to try to gain other peoples approval and therefore act in ways that they think other people would like instead of how they would genuinely like to act. Being genuinely true to yourself requires you to stop conforming and following others. This requires courage and overcoming the fear that you may come off as weird, strange or unnatural. Everyone is unique in their own way and although some people may think they are happier by acting fake, just for peoples’ approval or to fit in a certain group (e.g. at a school) or even just to make friends; by being fake you are probably not acting how you would truly want to deep down. This includes disagreeing with what people say sometimes and saying things some people may disapprove of although of course sometimes it is best not to say anything or to tone down what you are saying as you still need to be sensitive of other peoples’ opinions.

  • Ninety percent of the world’s woe comes from people not knowing themselves, their abilities, their frailties, and even their real virtues. Most of us go almost all the way through life as complete strangers to ourselves.–Sydney J. Harris

Thinking about life, what makes it worth living?

How is life made worth living? There are many people who don’t know what to do with their life and stay in watch T.V. or feel like their have something missing. What can you do to find out what you need to do in your life? It’s simple – yet hard to put into effect, I think the most important thing is exploration.

You can explore yourself and the world around you in many ways.

Self exploration can be done by journalling, or by arts (not just drawing or painting) and thinking. You could explore in ways such as by reading or talking to others, or challenging your comfort zone by doing things you wouldn’t normally do. However there can be things that prevent you from doing these things such as fear, being addicted to comfort or in other ways not be able to do something, maybe just because you don’t have the resources or the time. It can be so good to explore in different ways, however it’s probably best to take small steps at a time but without giving up too quickly.

This is my first post, I would love it if you could tell me what you think below if you liked it or not and what you found interesting/could be improved. I am experimenting with styles right now 😀
