Dear Royal Friends ~
Learning to be happier is like taking singing lessons.
This occurred to me as I was warming up today, not in my Lululemons for yoga class, but in my heels and tiara for a master class in voice I’m giving this afternoon. I am a tad worried, as my voice is a little horse.
When we sing, if a note is flat and under pitch, we need to brighten the sound. How do we brighten the sound? One simple technique is to imagine a teeny weeny little smile on the inside of our head. We actually think the smile, and the sound becomes brighter. Another technique is to give ourselves a little more support for the sound.
That is incredible. All it takes is the slightest suspicion of a smile, and we can go from being flat to being brighter and on key! Or we might need to give ourselves a little more support. Then it hit me. On the journey to our happier, brighter selves, often it merely takes small inner changes.
Before we can make these changes in life and in singing, we first need to be aware that we’re “off key.” For those of you who are tone deaf, take heart; every day’s a new shower.
Here’s the “key.” Even in our awareness, change doesn’t happen over night. You might hit flat notes regularly until all the moving parts become second nature. Practice makes Puccini!
Life and singing lessons. Small, learned changes, practiced over time, stamp out the flat notes, leading us to our inner bright sounds. We just have to be aware that it’s possible, desire the outcome, learn the technique, and do the work.
I’m here for you, princess!
