Everyone has bad days now and again no matter how good our life is going. And there are times when you just have to ride out the misery, but there is one thing I can do that instantly lifts my spirits. Well, two things actually. I either sing or listen to music. It instantly recharges me.
Years ago, I sang in my church choir, and I miss it now. I miss the joy of joining in with a dozen or so other voices and just singing at the top of my lungs. Now, I do that in my car or while I'm getting ready in the morning. I sing to my cat, to my friends on the phone, or while I'm pumping gas. And in the midst of a day that isn't going so well, I start to smile.
As the picture says, music heals the soul. I believe that, and when I can't sing because of where I am at the moment, I plug in my headphones and listen to music. Pretty soon, the words are resounding in my head and blocking out any negative emotions.
Right now, I'm addicted to Imagine Dragons. Their songs, Demons, Radioactive, I Bet My Life, Warriors, and Ready, Aim, Fire, are some of my go-tos when I want to change my mood!
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
