Welcome to Sound & Stories!
A place created for everyone who loves stories – authentic stories – and music – songs and sounds – that hold meaning. Maybe only for that moment in time, maybe forever.
Sound & Stories is about inspiration. That is the purpose of this space. I believe stories and sound have the power to transform. They are healing for everyone involved, both the writer and the people who read it. The awareness that is being created, presents you with new insights. Some of which wants you to dive deeper and explore more of who you are.
Same can be applied to sound with the right tune, song or lyric. It has the power to unlock something unhidden. It opens your eyes and invites you to see the world from a new perspective:
‘A new fantastic point of view. A whole new world – with new horizons to pursue… Let me share this whole new world with you.’
Maybe you recognise the lyrics or the song? It is from Disney’s Alladin. A song that gave me a different meaning in the beginning of my journey, sparked by an experience full of magic.
I believe every story gets better with sound. They work in great harmony and elevate each other. They are companions and as in every companionship, the companions are complete within each other. But together, they can create even more magic.
And why did I mention authentic stories? Authenticity is about being true to oneself. True to your beliefs. True to your desires. Simply being true to ones nature. I see authenticity is an extension of truth. It is about knowing and speaking your truth including the parts of you, you rather would like to hide than expose. Authenticity is a process and a practice:
“To be authentic, we must cultivate the courage to be imperfect — and vulnerable. We have to believe that we are fundamentally worthy of love and acceptance, just as we are. I’ve learned that there is no better way to invite more grace, gratitude and joy into our lives than by mindfully practicing authenticity.”Brené Brown
Writing helped me to become more authentic. I discovered writing in 2016 at a turning point in my life. Ever since, I write and I evolve. I bring to paper what I experience, how I feel and when I struggle I write with the intention to gain deeper clarity – whether it be in my external or internal world. I am ready to share my story. Here, I want to tell it.
