I used to enjoy the music, the different harmonies and melodies. How, whenever I was feeling down, the music would lift my spirits with simple notes or long symphonies. The early morning joyful and boisterous sounds, the afternoon playful tunes, the evening lullabies.

But certain experiences in my life have hardened my ears to the beautiful music. All I could seem to hear were hard notes that were more chaos than music. I grew impatient and would turn it off by walking away to hide. I would think about how I used to look forward to the sounds that would fill my heart with joy. Could I ever find that joy again? I have tried but I couldn’t seem to find the right instruments. Sometimes a melody would float through the air, but then it would crash down in a frenzied mess, leaving me agitated and empty.

Then, I heard the beautiful music of two new instruments. It was hard at first to hear the harmony. My ears had to be retrained. But then, like the sun breaking over the horizon, the song that swelled through the air was bright and invigorating. The laughter, the smiles, even the arguing, it was a symphony that lifted my heart. I was taken to a new world of innocence and happiness. A blessing that my ears and my heart needed very much.

Since then, my ears have become more tuned into the music. I hear it wherever I go now. Sometimes it brings tears to my eyes, the emotion in the songs is so innocent and sweet. Other times it is mature and well thought out.

Listening to a symphony today that I remembered so many years ago as just a few simple notes, and seeing how it has progressed into a complicated yet magnificent masterpiece. It just takes my breath away.

I am so glad to be able to hear and enjoy the music again. I had neglected the instruments for so long, yet they still produce the most wonderful melodies. I will never close my ears again
