Sounds can play an important role in our minds. When we hear a sound it can remind us of a person we once new, a happy memory or a dark time that we would rather forget. It is a wonderful gift to be able to hear, one that many do not think of as a gift since majority of human beings are born with the ability to hear ❤
Could you imagine not being able to hear the voice of the people you love the most? What about music? It is hard for me to imagine what that would be like. I am thankful that I can hear. It is something that I am very grateful for often. You see, since a young age, maybe around 5 years old, I have only been able to hear properly in my right ear.
It was difficult for my parents to realise that I was partially deaf as I was already a quiet child. Although quiet, I would happily play with other children, on the playground at school, reading books and creating art. I was a happy child. It was not until my ear started to hurt often that I was taken to the doctors. The doctor examined my ears and found the internal area of one to be different from the other.
My left ear was not looking like it should have been. I cannot really explain it well but basically the inside of my left ear is more narrow than my right. I went through many tests from age 5 years old until my early teens. I had to listen to all kinds of sound tests and let the doctors know what it was that I was hearing. My results came back and showed that in my left ear I could hear about 20% and my right ear 75% ❤
There was no concern that I would require a hearing aid as I was doing well in school with my school work. However, looking back on my school years, I can now see that I may have been more of a quiet child because there were times that I could not hear people. So some may have thought I was ignoring them. I would tell most that I was deaf in my left ear but some people would think it was a joke and others would forget. To be honest at times I would forget haha.
I have never felt deaf (I am not sure how else I could put that). Still to this day I forget I am deaf in my left ear. Yes, I guess I’m technically 25% deaf in my right ear but I do not see it like that. Lol I really do not think anyone says about themselves, e.g. “my hearing is at 100%”. This is all interesting to think about. It is important that we are thankful for the ability to hear. Music is a huge part of my life. I was fortunate to be a part of choir and play instruments while I was in school 🙂
I have always enjoyed singing and playing instruments. I will actually be getting back into playing both acoustic and electric guitar. I miss playing the guitar so much! If you did not know, I am a huge fan of 80’s rock. 80’s music was pretty much all I listened to when I was in my teens haha. My soul has forever been with the 80’s 😀
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a beautiful tree in a meadow acrylic painting. I really love meadows, such luscious and stunning nature throughout. Ones that are filled with an endless amount of flowers. I just want to run through a meadow when I see it. Flowers make my heart fill with a lot of joy.
I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! Always appreciate the things that you have in order to make room for more wonderful opportunities to come your way. Have a beautiful day!
