Lift Yourself Up With Music!

We all find ourselves down from time to time.  You know the feeling--blue, down in the dumps, glum.  This is totally normal!

Oftentimes, though, when we find ourselves in these types of states, we turn to music as a sort of therapy.  It's comforting to listen to those sad tunes--Sinead O'Connor's Nothing Compares 2U, George Harrison's I Live For You, Bruce Springsteen's The River, Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 5--and I say EMBRACE them!  Listen to them, cry if need be, sulk, and release all those sad/negative/what-have-you emotions.

Use music as therapy and allow it to transport you!

Allow whatever it is you're listening to, though, to eventually shift you over to peppier, more upbeat songs [eventually].  Get the "sad songs" out of your system, even if it takes a whole month, but allow that music to transport you to a happier state.  In time, you will naturally want to listen to Let's Call the Whole Thing Off!

Without realizing it, the music we are listening to reflects our current mental-spiritual state.

Reflect on the current soundtrack YOU are listening to.  What kind of music comprises it?  Have you been drawn to a specific type of music lately?  Take inventory on the music you've been listening to might be reflecting your overall spirit or how your overall spirit might be impacting your choice of music!

In short, music is some pretty powerful stuff.  Use it for the amazing tool that it is.  And if, by chance, you do happen to be feeling down, might I recommend this to add just a bit of brightness to your current life soundtrack?

With love, light and happiness,
