Have you made any New Year’s resolutions for singers?
Wishing you joy and peace as we move into a wonderful new year. There are many things to be thankful for and the new year is a good time to contemplate our blessings, our sorrows, our hopes, and our dreams. What are your personal hopes and dreams? What are the things that motivate you to grow in all aspects of your life? What is it that gives you the most joy? Do you have peace and contentment in your life? What do you long for? Maybe you would like to take a few minutes to reflect on some of the blessings in your life today. Take some time to be thankful for the gifts that you have been given? Think about the things you would like to do this year? Are there people that you could help out of the abundance you have received? There is so much joy in giving! We all have something that we can give; some way that we can help others have a better day.
Are you a person who makes New Years Resolutions? I like to make a few reasonable resolutions, but not so many that I feel overwhelmed. Sometimes it helps me to set some goals and maybe even make myself a little schedule so that I can actually make some changes. I like to make sure that my spiritual goals receive top priority because my relationship with God is the source of my joy and gives direction to my life. This year I am asking Him to help me practice gratitude every day. I want to dwell on and thank Him daily for all of the blessings He bestows on me and my family, and that out of that abundance we will in turn be a blessing to others.
In the spirit of New Years Resolutions, perhaps we could think about a few we could make as singers. Since this post has had the theme of joy, peace, contentment, giving, and gratitude, let’s apply these to some resolutions that might help us to be more free and joyful in our singing.
1. Sing for the love of singing.
2. Sing to bless others.
3. Sing to connect with God and to connect with others.
4. Practice some aspect of singing every day.
5. Again, sing for the love of singing.
May this be your best year ever!
