One morning, I woke up and heard the most beautiful music.

It had a lovely, happy melody and got me moving joyfully from the moment my feet touched the floor.

It was a great day and I tackled every challenge with a skip in my step and great enthusiasm.

Unfortunately, the next day, the music was gone.

I felt miserable and demotivated from the very beginning.

All day, I trudged along slowly, wondering why every was going wrong and wishing that the music would come back.

The next morning, I woke up and there was no music again.

I wondered why this could be, then I realised something important.

The music comes from within.

I don’t need external sources to bring me joy.

And the noise of the world can’t bring me down.

I smiled, provided my own melody for the day and haven’t looked back since.
