Evolution of Music Lovers: From 90s to Millennials

I was one of the kids born in 90s. I witnessed how our generation changes as well as the taste in music. I was inspired to write this blog when I heard my sister's music playlist. I don't know why but there's really a change when you hear today's hit. I am not biased, but I think the 90s songs are more meaningful, classical and... I don't know, it's inexplicable. Nothing quite brings you back to the good old days like '90s music, and even those of us who prefer far hipper music today have to admit that lisening to 90's music gives us all sorts of nostalgic feels.

Born in 1989, I've witnessed how music evolves as well as music icons.  Westlife turns into Coldplay and The Script, cassette tape and CDs replaced by ipod, song hits books faced out due to Google search lyrics and chords. Everything is now accessible through internet, even music are now downloadable in ITunes and available in spotify. 

If you are a "true blood" music lover, you will clearly see the changes. Even in musical instruments. You will witness how it evolves. I've visited some sites today like guitar center rockville, you will see different kinds of modern guitars and other musical instruments. You can find great selection of guitars, keyboards, basses, drums and etc. Those instruments are far more different than the instruments in the 90s. The instruments now are so modern and hightech.

Music also undergo evolution of different different genres. From pop, hiphop, alternative rock to Dark Bass Music, Triphop, Air Pop Glitch Soulazz, Country Dance Music, Space Trap and etc. I'm not an expert in music and genre, but as a normal music lover I've clearly hear and see the difference of the style, instruments and genres of music. But despite all the changes... music always touches ones soul.

Keep going everyone. God bless.

Facing New Beginnings With a Grateful Heart

Another year has ended and we are about to face a new year- a new beginning. I can't imagine how my life looks like 10 years... or 5 years ago. Everything happens in God's perfect plan. I thank God everyday of my life because He made all things work together for good. I've been grateful for all the blessings He showered me. I am also thankful for my family for the treasured moments and some sad and painful moments. The 2016 is the year for me for reconciliation, for healing of wounds and forgiveness. I won't elaborate all the pains I've been through in this blog, but all I can say that God has been so gracious to us that despite all the pain, He shows mercy. The hardships I had the past year will not compare to the love and grace I received from God. It is easy to be thankful for the good things. A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks. 

Things to do and look forward this 2017:
1. Give more time for myself. Explore, wander and do the things I love. I would love to go back to painting- again. I want to go to different places within the Philippines with my family. I want to explore new things alone. "More Me time" for me. This all I want.

2. Change my perspective. Give priorities and finish work on time. I hate to procrastinate. Not this time! Not this 2017.

3. Make a better version of me. Feel and be beautiful. There's always a better version of yourself. Go and find it. Be beautiful- inside and out. 

Get a life. I'm so excited for the new life that awaits. God is gracious. enjoy life's adventure. Keep going everyone. God bless. Happy New Year.
