Supportive voices in my head (Writing songs)

As I mentioned previously, I have started to write poems that should someday turn into songs. For now there is nothing much I could tell about it, except that it is great fun and I enjoy it a lot. My poems might be bad, but I think with more exposure to lyrics of other songs for example, I will get the gist of it and be able to create my own.

The funniest thing that I tried was to ask ChatGPT to write me some songs. Obviously I am not using the results, because they don’t resonate with me that much. But it is very interesting to see an example of what a song could look like. This is the song ChatGPT wrote about Happy Voices in my head:

(Verse 1)
I hear them every day, they lift me up and say
“You’re doing great, keep going!” and “You’ll get through anything!”
Voices in my head, they make me feel so blessed
I’m so grateful for their love, it’s like they’re my own personal nest

Happy voices in my head, you make me smile and shine
Your words are like sweet music, that’s always in time
Supportive voices in my head, you cheer me on every day
I’m so lucky to have you, in my own special way

(Verse 2)
Sometimes they’re so loud, I can’t help but feel proud
Of everything I’ve achieved, with them as my company
Voices in my head, they never put me down
Their encouragement is like a golden crown

Happy voices in my head, you make me smile and shine
Your words are like sweet music, that’s always in time
Supportive voices in my head, you cheer me on every day
I’m so lucky to have you, in my own special way

I don’t know where they came from, or why they’re here to stay
But I know that I must cherish, their presence every day
I’ll listen to their guidance, and follow their lead
And I’ll know that I’m blessed, with all that I need

Happy voices in my head, you make me smile and shine
Your words are like sweet music, that’s always in time
Supportive voices in my head, you cheer me on every day
I’m so lucky to have you, in my own special way

Happy and supportive voices, I’m so grateful for you
You make me feel so loved, in all that I do
I’ll keep listening to you, and taking your advice
With you by my side, I know I can conquer any strife.


Isn’t it just the most amazing idea to have happy supportive voices in your head? Most of us know only the nagging and doubting merry-go-round that is playing on our nerves and keeps us small. But what if you could change that to a support system that cheers you up. I liked this idea and that’s why I asked ChatGPT to write a song about happy voices.

Btw. You could ChatGPT absolutely anything and you would get an answer. I wrote more about ChatGPT here.

Songwriting. I can only recommend everyone to try it. It’s really not as hard as you would imagine. Previously, I thought Songwriting was something that only geniuses can do. Then I made a friend who wrote really nice songs and it occurred to me that maybe even normal people, like him or me, could write songs. So I tried it. Not even consciously.

My first song came to me when I was taking a walk in my neighbourhood. I recorded it instantly and I still know the lyrics and melody by heart. It was definitely a gift from above and some day I will surely share it. For now, it has only verses and no chorus or bridge, so I am thinking if I should work on it and add those parts. But I will see how it’s going, because I might ruin the whole thing since it’s pretty much perfect as is.

The other songs I write are only lyrics for now, but I hope that once I improve on the guitar and piano, I could also write some music around it. Actually it is not difficult to find a melody line for the singing part. I am just lacking the skills to write it down properly. But since I am just starting out on this journey, there is plenty of time to record and make up everything.

I have one million ideas about topics, some phrases I’d like to include or just random prompts I could use.

I guess in a few months I could show you some results. For now I end this blog post with a quote about songwriting that I got from ChatGPT:

“Songwriting is the art of taking the intangible and making it tangible, the invisible and making it visible, and the impossible and making it possible.”

Behind the scenes

Be my parent

This week I announced on my Instagram that I am starting a new life. Again!

But since the last new life was started more than 5 years ago I think it’s fair to do it again. I got stuck in the windmills of the daily repetitions. I neglected my ambitions. I failed in so many ways to achieve my goals. But now that will change! I will document my goals and my work towards it. I will not hide my failures any longer.

And eventually I will succeed! Or not. Who knows?

But I want to invite you to be part of my journey.

What’s the deal?

I have neglected my passions and my talents. I have not done any performances for a long time and this needs to change! It will be difficult because I am still working full time, but I need to put in the effort and try my best to develop new skills and expand my horizon.

I am going to learn, rehearse, practise and eventually perform. I will see you as my accountability buddy. I will not hide anything from you. I will show you the good days and the bad days. Maybe not all the bad days and maybe not my worst moments, but you get the point. Please do call out on me!

I think it’s beautiful how many people challenge my guitar learning. Yes, I haven’t done much so far, but every question is reminding me and a motivation to sit down and practise.

So that is the deal: I work hard and you watch!

I want to live a new life. I want to be an artist. But I need some parenting from your side! It is too hard to pull everything out of me. I need the reminders, I need the pushes and I need your love and support. Please be there for me!

Sweet Home

My non glamorous life

It’s been a week since I promised regular postings and here I am not knowing what to write. This blog was supposed to be a place for my glamorous life, but now I don’t have a glamorous life anymore. I guess you have to get used to a new me.

I could start describing the life that I am living right now. I work part-time in a software company. We do E-Commerce. I am working as support agent, but I also do a lot of HTML and CSS work. I decided to do a further education in Web-Development and I’m gonna start with this in October probably.

I am still giving dance classes in our studio and I am learning the Arabic language. It gives me great joy to study and practice it. I still dream to move to Dubai, but I don’t know if I will really do it. I hope that I can visit the city next year and then decide if I like it or not.

As you see I lead a normal life and it is not glamorous at all. I didn’t do any photo-shootings for ages and I don’t know when I will find the time to do one. I will continue posting great pictures of me, because I still have some old ones that are pretty good.

I still live in Berlin. I like my home, but I also dream of leaving it and seeing more of the world. I hope that I can do that soon. After I finish my Web-Developer training, I want to become self-employed and I hope that I will have better chances to travel then. Right now I’m lacking the money and also the bravery.
