As Someone Who Pays Close Attention To Words

I write my own songs and sometimes even sing them. It’s quite an experience.

My goal is to become uniquely inspirational some day, but not in the mentioning of a higher power kind of way.

To use real-world situations as my guide!

I’m not sure I will get to where I want to be, which needs to be better defined.

And, I’m opening myself up to potential criticism with this post…

There’s an artist, similar to Adele (that I recently discovered), but in the Christian realm, that is bright and shiny, and who also helps a lot of people—but, perhaps in a different way!

I am speaking of Lauren Daigle.

And, while I personally don’t take to the politics of the Christian “Right” (the predominate view for Christians in the U.S.), I DO find comfort in some of Lauren’s most uplifting songs!

When times are tough, I will sometimes put on some Contemporary Christian music.

So, what I get from doing this are feelings that sometimes conjure up relief for my world—no matter how much I am hurting—a “soothing” I might not have gotten without this effort—and, without some past religious programming.

I know that there are a lot of non-Christians out there, and quite frankly, religion (any religion or no religion) is your business.

So, I won’t say a whole lot more about Christianity vs. non-Christianity (because the world and people in particular are not helping matters—and, there are NO easy solutions ANYWHERE that I’ve found), except to state that it’s whatever works for and helps YOU!

In fact, you don’t even need to tell anybody you’re listening (that is, if you are)!

My main recommendation is a song of hers called, “You Say,” which is a cross-over pop song, that you may have already heard.

It isn’t the world’s best music, but it is a change of pace for some.

Plenty of people will not even care, nor will have ever heard of Lauren Daigle, so sharing her name is all I am doing here today.

Regardless of how and what you believe—her music may be worth a listen (if you’re so inclined)—makes no difference to me—except maybe on a discussion level.

Anyway, what kind of music inspires you? Seriously… with so many people loving music, I want to know what inspires YOU! No judgment… for I get inspiration from a plethora of artists and genres, that I’ve been known to listen to on “repeat” when the feeling hits!
