When I was in elementary school, ( I think 6th grade) I remember I had to write about a certain topic. I don’t recall exactly what is was, but I vividly remember that I chose to write about what playing the piano meant to me. At that age it was my passion. My soul purpose in life. I wanted to be the greatest pianist of all time. Who knew that my memory was going to be so horrible that it wouldn’t play out? Regardless, I wrote that day of how music made me feel. If I was sad, I would play pieces that were flowing and soothing. Angry? Well then I would pound out Beethoven’s 5th or Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata 3rd movement.
What do you do as an emotional release? Another thing I do is my crafting and quilling… They’re relaxing and quiet.
