Your life: is it a symphony or a solo?
As beautiful as a solo can be, a symphony has greater depth.
(In case you’re wondering, a symphony is a musical composition for a group of instruments with at least four distinct sections.)
Who is playing in your symphony?
Whistling alone might not be the best choice. Make your life interesting – embrace the opportunity to play with others. However, it’s also good to be playing your life’s symphony with a group that supports you…
So – who is in your symphony orchestra of life?
Is it time to audition a few new players?
A few places of encouragement:
To support this idea of not just whistling in an empty room, I’m participating in a writing challenge for the month of April and I thought I’d share some posts from fellow writers!
- Bonnie always makes me chuckle! (I’ve been reading her posts since 2011) Everything from relationships, her
grands, to trash on the beach – it’s all fodder for her way of looking at life. If you want to view Life on the Lighter Side, check out Bonnie’s post!
- Kerry is a mom from my home country of Canada. She writes about being creative – this post has a beautiful perspective. “Choosing a hobby for which you have talent is an important part of
self-care.” she says. What’s your creative hobby? How do you use your creativity to glorify God?
- in this post, Stephie is talking my language of optimism! She has great points on why expanding your horizons will help you be optimistic and why you need to be aware of your surroundings.
- I “met” Debi and Tom from The Romantic Vineyard when we both participated in a 30-day challenge in 2011. She continues to write about marriage, and her posts are insightful and fun – Rob and I have adopted/adapted some of her dating ideas. Debi asks, “Are you up for the challenge”? – I encourage you to explore the website and share it with your “couple-friends”!
These are only a few of the articles I’ve been reading in this symphony of online voices…
Go deeper and Enjoy!

No one can whistle a symphony is serious.I loved your post.A mindset like this helps us find the right people in your life
It might be time to audition a few new players. I tend to go solo. Thanks for the encouragement!
It can be tempting to go solo, but we underestimate the joy a group surrounding us can bring. Reach out – it might surprise you how easy it is… 🙂
I love this analogy. I love my symphony of friends and family. And the on-line symphony is always there inviting me to join in the music. So happy we met 8 years ago and that our lives keep touching in various ways. This is an outstanding and encouraging post. Thanks for all you and Robert do to help us be an encouragement in our world.
Oh, and thanks for the Link-up. Very thoughtful!
Excellent blog post lady. I simply love your perspective. I will read what you have recommended. Sounds cool. Wow…this post will stay with me for long.
I love this, even though and maybe especially because, I can’t whistle. That makes me need a symphony even more!
thanks for stopping in, Bonnie!
(Can’t whistle, huh? What about Bob?)
The trick is to get everyone playing the same tune- and at the same tempo!
Oh, my… yes! LOL
