Grey’s Anatomy is in My Everyday Life and Finding My Voice

May 30th, 2016

 

My second post is devoted to explaining where I got the idea of – follow your voice.

As you will soon realize, I get my ideas and inspiration from TV shows, movies, and music.

When we talk about how television influences on our lives, there are two sides to the coin. One side is the view that television depicts the negative side of life, but I see the brighter side of the scene.

Some of these television shows make us realize how beautiful and dramatic life can be and how we always have a second chance in life.

 

There is one show in particular that has been with me since I moved out into my own apartment: a medical drama. I love TV shows about doctors.

Grey’s Anatomy made its way on air in 2005.

 

Since then, I, and many others, have watched the characters evolved from the unsecured steps in life, falling into the deepest and darkest places, to blossoming in a romantic love story that conquers all female hearts. We all want a McDreamy or McSteamy in our lives.

A part from the love stories, this show actually holds some depth and relevance to our day-to-day lives, at least it does in mine.

 

The stories are well-managed according to a normal person’s life and each story holds a lesson at the end of it. With emotional quotes, well-written dialogue, and thoughts with deep, yet effective meaning, Grey’s Anatomy holds the honor of being one of those shows that is actually relevant to my normal life.

There are so many occasions where I have gotten emotional watching Grey’s Anatomy. One of these times was in season 12 chapter 9.

 

At the beginning of the episode, they quoted:

 “In group settings men are 75% more likely to speak up than women,

and when a woman speaks up is statistically probable men counterparts will either interrupt her or speak over her.

It is not because they are rude,

it is science the female voice is scientifically proven to be more difficult for male brain to register.

What this is mean?”

 

At the end of the episode, Meredith said to one of the female interns:

Don’t let fear keep you quiet. You have a voice, so use it. Speak up.

Raise your hands. Shout your answers. Make yourself heard.

Whatever it takes, just find your voice, and when you do, fill the damn silence.

 

It reminded me a TED talk from Amy Cuddy where she also was talking about the female voice,  Your body language shapes who you are.

 

 

 

This “find your voice, use it” mentality inspired me to use this website to find my voice and, at the same time, follow my inner voice.

 

All of us have this voice, but we barely listen

because we are so busy with our daily lives.

 

This voice contains the truth about ourselves and

can lead us to our long awaited happiness.

 

This voice tells us to live boldly instead of waiting for the “perfect moment” and

what our souls want for us: the best.

 

This voice that unfortunately do not listen to because we, with our brains,

think we know better than our voice.

 

We think we can control and manage it better.

We think we know the best for ourselves.

 

We forget that we will never win our hearts in the search for happiness.

 

The heart knows best and although it may not be the easiest path, it will be the most rewarding.

 

The heart can lead us, magically, to the real pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

 

And this voice, your voice, connects to your heart.

heart leads you
heart to pot of gold
