“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.” – Ernest Hemingway
Many families will be gathered around the television this Sunday night for the 55th annual GRAMMY® Awards in Los Angeles. Grammy’s will be awarded for the Record of the Year, the Album of the Year, Best Rock Album and many more totaling up to 81 awards. Popular artists like Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, and Adele have been nominated to win awards and each nominee hopes to leave home with a gramophone of their own. Rihanna, Sting, and Kelly Clarkson are rumored to perform on “Music’s Biggest Night,” taking center stage to wow the audience with their electric dance moves and vocal prowess. Taking a load off and winding down from the weekend with your friends and family sounds like music to our ears.
The 60 second spot that many of us have seen on TV or have maybe come across while internet surfing uses the tagline, “The World is Listening.” You probably paid little mind to this slogan. However, these four words deserve more than just a glance, for they exhibit more than just the use of personification. They are a way in which we can see how all individuals in the world are alike, in that we are all connected to music. We, as individuals, are the world and we use music as a way to express ourselves and connect with others. We listen to music daily; in our cars, on our smartphones, and in our hearts. But how often do we listen to the world?
Although all of us live in the same world, we each have our own individual worlds that we couldn’t imagine living without. Although it’s usually unintentional, sometimes we take our world for granted; we neglect our friends, our spouses, or our children. In this technological age it is easy to find ourselves entirely consumed by work. We are business-focused and task-oriented, but we should not let the stresses of society ruin relationships with loved ones. We must listen and engage with those individuals in our own world and show them the ways we cherish them so they are never left feeling unloved.
Your spouse and your children mean the world to you. Why not show them this through the gift of life insurance?
