The #MusicTherapyBlogger Challenge is still going strong — here is the round-up of blog posts from Week 3! The #MusicTherapyBloggers are ROCKIN’ it!
Here was the Week 3 prompt:
From time to time, I read a quote, statement, or song lyric from someone that really makes me stop and think. It is often something that I connect with on a personal or professional level. From there, sometimes I incorporate the quote in a social media post. Sometimes I create a graphic and share on Pinterest or Instagram. When I find myself inspired, I want to share it with the people around me.
This week’s challenge is to do just that – share a quote that you love and/or that makes you think. Then write your blog post to reflect upon that quote.
