Imagine you are in a quiet place. You’re nice and comfortable. Then you begin to hear trombones. The melody is a little loud, but its calming. After the trombones, cello basses start to play. At first the instruments sound out of sync, like they are competing for attention, but then they start to sound like they are in perfect harmony. This goes on for a few minutes, then the faint sound of violins start to play. After the violins trumpets begin to play. The trumpets are then complimented by xylophones and flutes. Before you know it, all the instruments are playing at the same time. What sounded like competing noise at first, sounds like a beautiful symphony of sound. Like prefect harmony.
This symphony is a metaphor for your life. All these competing things and events all happening at once. Sometimes they seem to be out of sync, but in the end they turn out beautiful. You go to work and find out that you’re being made team leader, and this is the position you need to push you towards that promotion you’ve been looking for. This is the trombone. You get home that day, and your girlfriend or boyfriend starts an argument with you because they feel like this position change will cut into your time together plus they want to take the relationship to the next level, but you’re not sure. This is the cello bass. What started as a high is now looking like it might be a low, but the two events are still playing in concert. The next day you and your best friend get into a bit of a disagreement. You all are going on a trip soon and they had to back out at the last minute. They want their money refunded, but you’re telling them you can’t. You also think they should make then last minimum payment as not to disrupt the payments for everyone else, they don’t think they should have to continue paying. This causes a bit of a rift between you and your friend. This is the violin. One more situation added on top of what you already had going on.
You get to work the next day excited about your first day as team leader. You meet the team, introduce yourself and its going well. You make your first decision as team leader, and get immediate push back from a team member. In their “expert” opinion you should go another route. You respectfully and professionally inform them that you respect their opinion, but the decision you made will be executed. This is the trumpet, noise that came from nowhere, but still in harmony with everything else. After a pretty good first day, you get home and your girlfriend or boyfriend wants to continue the convo from the other day. You all talk it out, and finally they apologize. They know they overreacted, they will be as supportive as you need them to be. Your girlfriend or boyfriend is invested in the relationship and they know you all will make it work cause you always do. That’s the xylophones and flutes. Another sound, but still sweet music.
All the events come together to form the beautiful symphony that is your life. They seem out of sync, but they are all converging on you at the same time. Take a minute to stop and enjoy the music. It may seem like you have a lot going on and everything is pulling you at once, but if you take a minute to enjoy the music you will see that its all in perfect harmony. These events aren’t competing for your attention, they are shaping you. All happening at once to form a perfect harmony of life. Even if you don’t like the music, its your symphony so you can compose it. Just remember to enjoy the beautiful symphony that is your life.
