Start Your Day with Drumming: What is your Motto Life?

By Sylvia Ferro

How to set an intention for your day!

How to create a motto in life!

How to live a life of passion and action!

What is the perfect way to start your day?

Having been a personal trainer for 10+ years the answer I would likely provide you with would usually include something along the lines of cardio and a nutritious breakfast – until this morning! Today, my response might be revised slightly… and include the word “drumming!”

Let me explain… You see I recently relocated to Boulder, Colorado and moved in with this super dynamic crew of young women – a very creative and progressive bunch! All artists in their own way creating unique lives doing and sharing the things they believe in!

Bringing more of the Muse into YOUR life! Tips for Inspired Creative Living!

An excerpt from Muse Power, Chapter 10
For many people, finding a place to just be able to be quiet can be very difficult, much less finding a place to sing, dance and be Museful or practice and develop a practice of music or creativity.  
Utilize what you have. Don’t wait until you have the “perfect” situation to start finding and getting acquainted with your Muses.
If you have a commute, use your drive time to sing or practice your active listening skills.  Next time it rains when you’re driving, listen for the rhythm of your windshield wipers and sing to that!  When no one else is in the car it’s a perfect time for you to play, explore, and get silly with yourself.  Sing to the car next to you, sing your trip, sing what you’re feeling, seeing, and experiencing.
Another tool for your tool box is to become more conscious of rhythms around you. Open your perceptive abilities and
