SIX NEW STRINGS IN MY LIFE
Having a guitar in life, is a thought that many people have at least once in their life. But in my case this thought felt like that it’s a thought of lifetime. And to nourish this thought our all time over positive and optimistic bollywood movies played a big role.
The idea of having a music instrument always excite me, for once I was so into it that I joined the music society of my of my school for a year just because my friend told me that they will teach us how to play different instruments . But it was not my luck because it turned out to be vocals only that year.
So, it has almost been a year since lockdown in India this idea is bugging me a lot to at least learn how to play a single instrument. scrolling on social media I saw a post multiple time which said ‘One should at least learn to play a single instrument in life’ and with this thought I convince my siblings with this idea and with this begins our constant search for a prefect instrument that fits well within our requirement and budget. Thus we finalize to buy an guitar.
It has almost been over one month since we bought our guitar it has been a great experience even is such a short time first thing I learn that whatever I know about a guitar is wrong it is very difficult to learn is not a chides play . keeping this in mind I have been working with my full intension to master it, yes it goes without sing that I do slack off sometimes but I feels if you are truly trying to do something then some breaks here and there are not harming, but in fact these things help you to relax thus filling you with new excitement.
Well I truly feels that taking breaks can help a person to see his own acts and reflect on them, it is a thing that will truly help you to see your own passion about something in my case it is learning to play a music instrument or you can say a guitar. Well know I see why one should learn to play some sort of music instrument, it can help us to learn that how important it is to be balance if one is to soft then he will be easily manipulated by others , but on the other hand if one is to stiff then he can’t listen to others reasoning that will result in his own failure in the long run.
There are two type of people in this world one who learn their lesson the easy way and then there are those who have to learn it the hard way by exploring the wrong one first by making the wrong decision. But this result that those who took the hard way will cherish it even more than others.
Just like that I am sure that the heard learn lesson will help me in the same way and I can cherish them forever, the experience is also teaching me how important it is that every single peace work the way it should to make a big thing work, every small thing matters, just like that it is important that we understand that even the smallest job it important it run a big society. Sometime the small jobs are even important than the bigger ones.
As my brother and sister are the once who helped me in getting it in return I happily share it with them, so you can say along all other good things I am also learning to be more care full with sharing things with others and because of this my patience level is increasing and as siblings we have more topics to talk on, this is helping us in growing more and more closer as family and as individuals.
So, it is if to say that I had learn a lot about myself in this last month or so. Even more than the last whole year and I become understanding. Being a good listener was never the best quality I have in my arsenal but it felt like that now I can improve myself. As I have it listen to my younger sister giving me long lesson how to play as she is the best among us three and not just listening will do I have to make notes, ultimately this is helping me a lot with my online class as my concentration has increase as a result I can now grasp the lesson better than ever.
Now looking back to all the things this small decision of learning to play a music instrument was a great idea after all well I can say that it was surely worth trying. And of all the things that I have mentioned it remains the fact that it truly gives me happiness to be able to play and have fun with my guitar.
Of all the things consider that I yet to have learn a lot of things to learn because I am at the beginners level and I can’t tell what I will learn in this journey that is far ahead of me, I hope that I will learn good things not just about music but life as well.
As we all know we all have a journey that is called life ahead of us there will be up and downs in it and we should learn to enjoy them with open heart and a smile. Because we don’t know what type of experience is waiting for us. So keep an eye up on the road.
Because you don’t know where will you find your own “Six Strings” so all I can say keep looking, every story every journey is important. And keep this in mind that it is not necessary everyone will have the same journey that one have and this is why life is beauty-full, because it stores different situations and experiences for everyone of us.
The strings will vary in the meaning to everyone just like me it means hard work, passion, harmony, corporation, balance, and expression. One thing at which creative activities like music, arts, writing excels at is expressing once feelings and thoughts. So, everyone should try to express his/her thoughts. Also I have learn that one how have clear thoughts is calm as a flowing rive on the contrary of one who is completely strangle in his own thoughts just like a stormy sea. At first I didn’t understand the true meaning of it. But as time had passed I am starting to grasp the meaning of it. As it helped me with my unknown anxiety.
There are many things about our-self that we are yet to understand, we might not accept it but there are a lot of every day stress in our life. And developing a interest can help us felling better and many research have prove it that music is best thing to relax it can be playing music or just listening to it.
Keeping all deep thoughts aside just the felling to be able to play guitar a something that is just like an extra skill, something that not everyone is able to do, is a great feeling in itself. It work just like a moral boost to you it makes you feel that have something special that makes you feel that you have achieve something.
Just these small things are helping me to get through the waves that life is throwing at me these strings are helping me to get through the storming sea to the calm river. A destination where everyone wants to go hope that this prove to be my first step towards this. It is clear that it is a pretty big deal to reach other side and I am aware that I have to go through many exams to get there but within this month I have gather enough courage that I can do it and sourly will keep moving on.
Don’t know but since I have started my guitar lessons I don’t know but the old classical music had started felling more interesting me not just that but now I enjoy sufi music to its fullest in my senses. And I have learnt that there is a lot to learn for me. As there is a lot to learn in both life and music and one thing that my elder brother has told me os always pushing me that is, ‘it do not matter that you are doing it for fun, you should always give it your all’. Now I have made it my mantra in my life that doesn’t matter what it is if I am doing it I shall give my best to it nothing less is to be expected from myself.
After giving my best it do not matter what is the outcome. Because I am not left with any regret that I could have done better. So in last only thing that I can conclude is that you only get to live once so live it to fullest that you don’t have any regrets in life about anything.
