Music and Lyrics – explicit much?

Aah the lyrics in some of the songs these days just drive me crazy. Not because they do not make sense, but because they sound a bit too vulgar to be honest.

Following and above is going to be just my opinion. I do not mean to offend anyone. If you agree you would like what you read, simple as that.

I am a person who chooses to listen to music with good lyrics. When I say good I am talking about lyrics that makes sense. Lyrics that passes a good message. Hope I am not alone to notice this but songs releasing in past few months had spread only a message to get drunk, get high, smoke a joint and other R rated activities that they just have to promote.

What I do not understand is same music plays in most of all the clubs on a Friday or Saturday night, where the singers just abuse women; picture them as some material and then that same club is full of girls who are dancing to those beats and words. News flash we now also have female singers loving to abuse themselves or portraying herself somewhat disgusting yet making it sound “Cool”. What does not make sense to me is the part why would someone want to take abuse as a celebration or fun? Question in my head is why this generation has to make such a vulnerable choice?

Are we losing respect to ourselves as a person? Are we loving the part when we get abused?

There are rappers mostly who materialize woman and then again there are rappers like 2pac who said words like, “Since we all came from a woman, got our name from a woman, and our game from a woman. I wonder why we take from women, why we rape our women, do we hate our women? I think it’s time we killed for our women, be real to our women, try to heal our women, cause if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies that will hate the ladies, who make the babies. And since a man can’t make one he has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one.”

I have noticed myself changing my choice of music after few months in past 4 years. In that 4 years I have experienced different effects of the songs I listen to. That was the only reason I had to write this blog.

I ask you all to make a good choice of what you listen to. Because you may not experience this directly, but indirectly what you listen and what you see effects your behavior in everyday life a lot.

I ask you to listen to something positive and look at the positive things in your life. The more we surround us with negative or aggressive material, the more wilder animal we will become.  So, unless you choose to be a wild animal make sure you guard your eyes and ears and only let the good things get in.

I mentioned it before and again I mention it here, that above is my opinion. You do not have to agree with it. If you agree or disagree I would like to know why and how. Because above I said it is my opinion, I did not say I am right. So, please help me understand this if my opinion is wrong.

Thank you for reading.

Mondays of light and dark

The following is dedicated specially to “Monday”.

Everybody duck; Monday is here; don’t let it see you. Shake off that laziness and back to work you go or school. Whatever that is you are doing in current state of life. Remember that Bangles song? “Just another Manic Monday.”

Manic Monday

So, here is an interesting thing to lead you to the part where it feels like it was worth viewing this page, a coin. The coin is something that holds two totally different sides that will never be noticed by each other, even though being on a same body. There are barely few such things out there in the world that holds two controversial sides to each other yet belong in a same body. One of those is the most amazing creation of God. That is a human body.

A human body holds two things, Light and Darkness. I am not just talking about the part that from outside it feels the light and inside its all dark. I am talking about our most precious assets heart and mind.

God made our body with bones; muscles; tissues and lots of cells. The muscles are capable to bring us towards the light. Light here refers to the strength to work hard. God designed our body in such a way that the more we train our body to work harder the longer we can keep going. Keeping healthy is a key here.God also gave us mind and heart. This heart sometimes has its own funny business going on when it is broken. That is when it makes us see only the darkness. We forget absolutely about the light, because when heart is broken we only feel the darkness. Worse than that is our brain.

A powerful light shines in the dark.

Like it says up there this article is dedicated to Monday, this brain of ours is our enemy when Monday shows up. Every time your body tries to bring you towards the light of hard work and progress, sometimes it is this brain being all lazy and not letting the body do its job. That is why it causes the darkness. It directly becomes an enemy of working hard or getting out of bed and starting to do over the things after two days of fun. Do not let this darkness get to you.

There are ways to start a good smiley Monday. Crack a joke with your barista in the morning.

When he/she says, “here’s your coffee”.

You say, “Thanks a latte”.

Last Monday I tried this it works perfect. This girl hands me my coffee and asks me, “Would you like your receipt, sir?”

I took a sip of my coffee and said, “Depends what is your return policy.”

Luckily she gets the funny side of it and there is a light laughter cracking up. Even the woman behind me heard and smiled. That start of the day felt so good, that feeling of goodness stayed with me till I was done working. Some of you may find there is no joke in it, which is okay because most of the people I told that joke later on to, didn’t find it funny either.

The point is to give it a happy try to start with, shaking off all the laziness and there you have it.

Good luck!!! Make people laugh today, that’s all Mondays are for.

Now on, Mondays are laughter days. Use it to ease into your work routine again.

Have good stuff lined up for you all for rest of the week. Subscribe or follow if you would like to have a daily dose of inspiration. My promise to you all is to think all day about everything and bring you only the best out of it. Tomorrow I have a very interesting story about “criticism”.
