I love [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chis Young[/lastfm]‘s new song “Voices“…about ‘hearing all the voices‘ of Mom, Dad, Grandpa, with all the great advice they give to him! I hear those ‘voices‘ all the time too, and I think we all do! When I am trying to make a decision, like the time I wanted to quit a job I hated years ago, I heard my Dad saying “A bird in hand is better than 3 in a bush”….meaning you don’t wanna quit a job you have, until you find another for sure! Or when I am totally overwhelmed with life, I hear my Mom’s voice saying, “Give it to God Honey, and then don’t try to take it back!” What do the ‘voices’ YOU hear say to you?
I also hear ‘voices’ of people I don’t really know, but have touched me through music or the movies! Like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Van Zant [/lastfm]sang in “Help Somebody”….when I feel like I cannot please everyone with my decisions, I can hear them saying “It’s better to be hated for who you are, than loved for who you’re not!”
Or[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Dolly Parton[/lastfm] from the movie Straight Talk where she accidentally fell into a job as a radio host giving ‘homespun advice.’ A caller asked for advice because she was one of 8 children, and her elderly Mom needed help, and none of the other kids were helping her to help her Mom. Dolly said in that movie, “It never ceases to amaze me, how one Mama can take care of eight babies, but eight babies can’t take care of ONE Mama!” I still hear Dolly’s ‘voice’ when my friends tell me how they cannot get help from their siblings, while caring for an elderly parent!
What ‘voices’ do you hear, and what do they say to YOU?
