Playlist of the Week
This post made me laugh out loud when I read it because I had one of those weeks where I couldn’t wait for it to be over! I actually have a long playlist of songs that I saved after my twin died and after my Dad died. Songs that when I was really feeling down I just put them on and cranked up the volume and just went with whatever I felt.
In no specific order
1. Bad Day–Daniel Powter
This was Friday. It talks about how even when we are having a bad day we all paste on the smile and go about our lives as if everything is good. Truthfully I’m not good at this because I wear my emotions on my sleeve.
2. Cry if you Want To–Holly Cole
This is a song that a friend of mine introduced me to. It is her theme song. “You can cry if you want to I won’t tell you not to”. It talks about how ugly it is to cry but how much of a release it is. I had a week that was overwhelming and I needed that release.
3. The Climb–Miley Cyrus
Introduced to me by another friend after my Dad died. I would play it over and over again. “There’s always gonna by another mountain”. It’s not about how fast we get there. It’s a powerful song, a song of hope and sometimes I need that.
4. Brave–Sara Bareilles
Heard this song on a morning show. Love how powerful it is as well. Hmm I see a pattern here. My friends all think I’m strong but there are times when I think they have more faith in me than I have in myself.
5. Let it Go–Idina Menzel
I have to learn that there are things that I can’t control.
