We all follow many rhythms
From the daily rise and shine to the habits and patterns we all enjoy, there is always a rhythm. I have heard football teams describe their pattern of play as offensive rhythms and quite often there is always some mechanical rhythm or natural rhythms (bird song) in our environments.
There is a comfort in the fact that we are all moving forward but sometimes when we stop and look at these rhythms there are the moments we can review what is going on and find a way to repeat patterns or in some cases not to repeat patterns. Quite often we do not stand still long enough to look at recurring patterns but they are constantly all around us.
Drumming with others allows a switching off or reset of life that not only gives us permission to play but also allows us to recover from distractional rhythms around us but more importantly drumming allows us to set the rhythm. Being in control of your own rhythm by playing on a drum is both satisfying but your actions add to the rest of the overall group sound so it’s a great way to also bond as a team and to hear what fits together.
What happens when we fall out of rhythm?
Sudden changes in the pace of life can be unsettling or they can be a welcome change and our body and mind can at times be shocked by a sudden change. But what if we knew more about rhythm? What if we saw rhythm as a series of short pattern changes that added up to a long term change? What if we knew about how we could change rhythms? If we could see what we can progress with at a more relaxed pace then life becomes so much more natural. We could then pick up speed in life whenever we wanted to and be ready for any changes. Simply change your “What if?” to a “When”.

Are you ready to play with your time?
This Blog was originally scheduled for the middle of the month but the rhythm of other things got in the way this month and we had to change it a bit. There may be times when we all have a million things to do (though that list would take some time to write) that we sometimes prioritise what we think is important. There is undoubtedly one thing that is super important and that is “YOU” and how you go through the rhythm of your life.
Enjoy life, enjoy your heart rhythm and play with time.
