Are you being true to your tune?

A couple of weeks ago I was looking after a sick grandie. As we were cuddling on the couch, Sesame Street was playing on the TV. I was singing along to one of those catchy songs, but after a while I stopped to listen to the words.....
You may or may not know this one, so I have added the link, just in case you want to hear it again...or for the very first time.....
Anyway the words go like this: 'Sing, Sing a song. Sing it loud, sing it strong. Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear, just sing, sing a song.'
I couldn't help thinking how apt this is. All too often we smother the secret sides of ourselves, our dreams, our fears,our triumphs, as well as our pain.
We can sometimes get so caught up in what other people will think or say about us, we keep our song to a 'low hum', or we don't even attempt to sing at all.
Sometimes we forget that it doesn't matter what anyone else's opinion is, because they aren't the focal point of our melody. They aren't even a part of the song, unless we choose to include them.
The 'song' is completely about the person who is singing along to the music...and the can't be heard by everyone else....because it comes from within!
So lets remember to sing our song, loud and proud. Lets not reduce the volume to a whisper because someone else has an issue, an opinion, or believes they have the right to 'judge' our song.
Testing...two...two...two.... ♪♫♪♪♫♫♪♫♪ xx
