Why a ukulele and not a guitar?

Why is it easy to play a ukulele?

I remember that when I was little my dream was to play a violin or a piano, after adolescence I wanted to be able to play a guitar, the economic limitations and beliefs of my parents never allowed those dreams to come true.

Today in my adulthood, after many years of being angry with life, this brings me to a person who manages to return the colors of a shadow and with it, the music and the fact of now having my own uku. It never crossed my mind to play a ukulele, what's more, I didn't even know that that's what "little guitars" were called hahahaha and it makes me laugh, because at the time I called them that.

I think that many times we do not value things for what they are, for what they manage to transmit to us, almost always we are directed towards what "suits us" best, to judge or devalue without first giving ourselves the opportunity to know, to really feel that suits us. The eyes, sight can blind us to the point of not allowing us to feel clearly, we believe that the bigger the better, without taking into account that a piece of the universe such as uku can create great things and transform the lives of women. people, giving meaning to what already has its existence.

Many have asked me and more guitar connoisseurs, why a ukulele and not a guitar? Well, I have barely a couple of months with my ukulele that I call Narcissus, I actually gave him that name because he is very handsome hahaha, and his engraving of a fish and seaweed reminded me of the story of this young egomaniac from Greek mythology. When I knew that he would come into my life, I entered a bit of anguish and fear of not being reciprocated by him, of not being able to carry him or that he would not fit in my small space that I have between one arm and another, there were so many doubts and anguish before that he arrived at my house, but deep down I knew that Narciso would fit perfectly with me, that thanks to his size he would not discriminate my desire and dreams to create magic, because from the first time I had him in my arms I loved him and I believe that he also to me, his small body and his 4 soft strings make it easy even when there is little mobility in my body, I must admit that I am quite vulnerable to frustration and impatience, but that is something that amazes me because it has not happened until the moment, because the ukulele allows that with two or three chords that I learn to be already playing music, creating rhythms and that motivates me to continue learning more regardless of physical limitations, in what situation or where I am, because your body is small Little boy, let me carry it with me wherever I go, and if I can do it myself, anyone with the same desire, dedication and effort, can achieve it, we have been together for a short time, but enough to say that it is our perfect story of love, that I make the best decision to have him with me and make him part of me, without realizing I gave him my heart.
