Music is powerful. It can bring people together and it can also separate them. Music is an art form that can immediately evoke an array of emotions and memories in its listener. Music has the ability to make a person feel understood by the musician. "Every time I hear West African music I feel warmth and a sense of celebration," Meghan told me excitedly. Music that has international influences gets her out of her seat. Music is also been a form of expression that has always been a big part of Meghan's life. In fact, she led worship at her church for 9-10 years, starting when she was 12, as well as experienced music in different cultures around the world. "My dream when I was a kid was to be on Broadway." When Meghan told me this, I almost asked her to drop some Hamilton bars. Alas, I was more interested in her belief that there was no such thing as coincidences. She and I both believe that everything happens for a reason. But, what's more profound is that sometimes there's little benefit in asking why certain events take place. "Every person you meet is for a reason," Meghan softly claimed. Sometimes people need to meet us for unique reasons. But, what's more humbling and freeing is realizing that sometimes we need to meet the right people for our own well-being. At the end of the day, we should all be thankful for the diverse selection of humans we cross paths with. It doesn't mean it will be easy. Like some great music, relationships can be hard or take time to build. But, if you're lucky, sometimes you'll find people that are composed similar to you. If you do, there's no shame in giving them a large portion of your time; you're bound to find an oddity about them. Just be sure to embrace a genre of people you've yet to truly appreciate. You and that person are bound to find something to laugh, cry, get angry or love together.
