Before I list the songs that comprise my current top five (for my top 40s), may I share with you some of the 'dare to dream' lessons learned from this 'Tell your soundtrack story' series? 1) Re-listening to beloved childhood music helps us become the hero of our story. As I re-listened to music I loved as a girl, I remembered that I loved LOVED making music, playing the piano in particular. Which is why my recently volunteering/being asked to play the piano every Sunday for the children at our church is such a gift; I'm rediscovering the making of music, and taking something that I loved back. I'm even toying with trying to compose a children's song. Any lyricists or poets among you? What music did you love as a child? As you listen to music from a time in your life when you still knew you were Rachel (see Rachel and Leah below), what did you remember about who and how you wanted to be? How can this remembering help you to be the hero of your story?
