1/30 Things Before Leaving 30: It’s Not A Good Thing To Die Feeling Sad

This was the first song I played when I first got this keyboards in this house. If we’ve been friends for a long time, you’ll know that I used to post piano covers (no singing involved) since 2008. That was when I first tried to learn how to play the piano by watching YouTube videos. Multiply and Facebook helped me share my new found love for piano and music to my friends, and until now I still have copies of all my recorded videos. I’m hoping to keep it forever.

Over the years, I noticed I have this frustration in singing while playing the piano. Because I cannot do it. It’s hard. It’s difficult to speak while pressing the keys and remembering the notes. I’m not really a singer but there’s still that desire in me to be able to sing and play at the same time. The thought of it makes me happy. Who cares if I don’t have a nice voice, haha, it’s just nice to be able to sing along as you play.

“But I guess it’s just not for me.”
That’s what I told myself.

Until one day, I suddenly found myself being able to do it. Slowly. It came as a surprise. My 19 year old self never imagined it will happen in this lifetime.

One thing I’ve learned:
Keep doing what makes you happy. I regret the years I stopped playing the piano and making music because I was too “busy”. If you stop doing what makes you happy, you’ll eventually find yourself dying. And it’s not a good thing to die feeling sad. We all deserve to die with smile in our hearts.
