30-Day Song Challenge: Day 30

Who am I right now? That’s a good question!

So the finale of this challenge is a song that reminds me of myself! Of course, it just can’t be one! I’m a multi-faceted person! πŸ˜€ There are times when I wonder if that’s difficult to do since I sometimes find myself trying to be like someone else. It’s fun to imagine as if you’re someone else for a day, but not at the expense of losing yourself!

This past month I’ve shared with you music from a variety of artists who’ve impacted my life. I wondered where I would exactly fall by the end of this challenge. So, without further ado, here are a few songs that remind me of myself!

All my life, I’ve been motivated to help the unfortunate and suffering. I also strive to help make this world a better place. My goals and actions have been oriented towards leaving a positive impact and caring for others. I think Beyonce captures my purpose in life, many of my life experiences, and my feelings as she sings “I Was Here” during United Nations World Humanitarian Day in 2012.

My spirit takes flight with loved ones encouragement and surrounding yourselves with the right people can make you feel alive!

Tim McGraw expresses what I want to live by for the rest of my life in his song “Humble and Kind” because I never know what every person that I meet may be going through right now.

I feel like the rest of my life is unwritten and undefined. I’m the author of my own story, and no one else can feel what I’m feeling.

Show the room what you can do. Meghan Trainor’s song expresses my love for dance and everything I feel while I’m dancing! I also love to help people have fun when they’re in a slump. πŸ™‚

What does it mean to give faith a fighting chance? When one door closes, another opens. I try hard not to take my only life for granted.

I wanna go wherever you want to go.” I think Yuna represents my artsy, carefree side, filled with beauty, flowers, travel, and companionship as she sings in a soft spoken voice. Hanging out in a coffee shop, riding a skateboard around town, painting outside in a park, taking photos in black and white, and long walks on the beach is something I would totally do on my days off when I’m not trying to save the world. πŸ˜‰ I think this is the side of me that you see me share most often on my blog.

When I was 14, I created a marble maze for an science experiment. The end goal was to create a maze that would take a long time for the marble to go through. I was pretty excited and worked on it for weeks. I asked the pizza place if they could give me an empty pizza box for a school project. I used a deck of cards to create various walls and I took a huge poster board, cut some conic shapes, and created a huge funnel.

When I first watched this video of Wintergatan’s marble machine instrument, it brought back those wonderful memories. It reminds me of myself because of the gears that are always turning and the curiosity I have with all the various pieces of life. I love to think and tinker with things and create some magic in the process.

Alright guys! I’m going to wrap this challenge up! I may have over done it, but it was a lot of fun as I relax from school and work! I never thought I would be able to keep a 30 day streak! Thank you again for joining me on this journey! I’ve also enjoyed listening to the music that has meant so much to all of you. I hope I can catch up reading your posts soon when the craziness of the holidays winds down. πŸ™‚

I’m going to wish you all an early happy new year! β€
