Day 14 of the Artistic Spirit Pledge

111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

Singing in the car

Day 14: Sing Like No One’s Watching

With the windows rolled down, and the sun shining in, I belt along to the music blaring from the car radio. I could care less if drivers next to me at a red light give me an odd glare – I am in my element and alive to the energy of the moment.

 Some sing in the shower while others prefer to only sing with the aid of an alcoholic beverage. For me, singing in the car is therapeutic, stimulating, and calming. Many of us get riled up when behind the wheel – most times when surrounded by just plain bad drivers. Our blood pressure rises, our hands stay on the horn, and our language becomes filled with expletives. When I get frustrated or am rushing to reach a destination, I turn up the radio and sing. I can’t make another driver decrease their own rage, but I can control how I respond.

 

**I am an Artistic Spirit! For most of my life I’ve used the creative arts as a source of spiritual exploration and healing, even though I didn’t always do so consciously. Sometimes I was the instrument creating the art and other times I was on the receiving end. The connection between art and spirituality is so significant in my life that it’s infused into everything I do. I love music, theatre, television drama series (daytime and primetime), and creative writing and find fulfillment in artistic expression of various sorts: singing, acting, and jewelry design. Throughout the next 98 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
