Psh. Who needs motivation when you have W? Sorry what was that? I meant to say that motivation is an essential part of remaining emotionally healthy. I need to stay motivated in my life so that I continue to feel happy and energized–and nothing gets me more pumped than a good song.
Now, I don’t mean songs like “Poker Face” or Skrillex anything. I don’t mean songs that make you feel hip or bad or whatever. I mean good music. Music that makes you want to sing. I have a coworker who sings–neither beautifully nor badly–but loud. She puts her heart into singing, even without an accompanist to help carry the tune. I love it when she sings.
Whenever I feel down or sad, I turn to music to help cheer me up. Hymns especially bring me peace whenever I feel troubled. If I’m sad, Kpop will get me going again. And if I just want to have fun with friends–well, bring on the Gaelic Storm and Men At Work!
Music is a great way to get back into the groove of life (gosh, did I really just write that pun? heh). This week, I’m gonna find myself a few new songs and listen to them when I feel down.
Which is always while I wait for W.
Thanks for reading and Happy listening,
