This week, I decided to restart something I'd always enjoyed - I rejoined my singing group.
I've been in my local singing group for nearly 9 years now, the group meets up every week and is lots for fun, but since the sudden death of my dad two years I had stopped going, as I just couldn't control my emotions every time we sang.
Anyway, after seeing a fabulous Twitter singalong posted up by the lovely @debsylee (they were all singing Abba songs) I realized how much I was missing my weekly 'feel good' session, so I made to decision to return and I'm so glad I did.
However, rather than return to sing the songs I already know, the group has a new medley of songs which I quickly need to learn in preparation for a local show and to be quite honest, they are all very new to me.
That got me thinking. I believe that learning a new song and learning to live a greener life has quite a few parallels. Not sure what I mean, well let me explain:
As with all things in life, not everyone is at the same stage of learning the song, or even on the same song sheet. Others would love to sing, but don't think they can, some prefer to listen to other sing. That's life. But for me, I love singing, I'm not the best, but I'm having a go, because at the end of it all, I know that it will enrich my life and also, hopefully, that of others.
What are your thoughts on this, do you see green living as something that you can learn to incorporate into your daily routine, or is it instinctive to you? Is it something that could add more to your life than takes, or do you feel it's not for you, just yet? I'd really like to hear what you think...
