Your Theme Song: Music for Inspiration (Exercise 43)
(Exercise 43)

© Bernie Siegel MD

We all can make music, but do we find the rhythm of our lives? Listen for a moment to the sounds surrounding you right now. Is it noise or music to your ears? We are constantly surrounded by sound, but everyone experiences it differently. For some, the intensity of a city street fills them with energy, while others need the quiet of the countryside to function and find inspiration.

I use music in the operating room to help create a healing environment for patients and staff. There is a reason that certain heart rates are healthy and certain beats of music heal and relax us. Why did someone decide to have sixty seconds in a minute and not a hundred? Listen to the clock: see how the beat calms you while a more rapid beat would create tension. Films use music all the time to affect how audiences feel as they watch.

Now it is time for you to find your song, the one that speaks to you and motivates you with its words and beat. Choose a theme song for your life. Every time you hear it, you will feel excited and energized. It is your song, and it carries your message of inspiration, which leads you to embrace life.

Join me as we sing “The Impossible Dream” and live as Don Quixote did, reaching for the unreachable star.
