7th January - Joy
Today I will sing a joyful song with my inner child.
Young children love to sing. They do not study voice in Italy before they sing an operetta about the events of their day. They do not wait to sell a million records before they croon a lullaby. Singing to them is another way of speaking.
My inner child loves to sing along with the radio. I may feel self-conscious but Pavarotti and Aretha Franklin really don't mind if my voice drowns them out. In the business of the day, I forget that I can sing and wash the dishes at the same time - but my inner child knows I can.
Everyone is given the gift of song. I do not have to have perfect pitch to claim it. I do not have to perform for others to enjoy it. Today I will sing along with my inner child and together we will make a joyful song.
