Lately I have created a playlist that gives me songs that touch my heart in one way or another. (Usually more for the words than anything.) I will give you a sneak-peek. This is one coping tool I use to get through the day.
Good Goodbye- Diana DeGarmo (My current favorite, as seen on the Young and the Restless)
It Won’t Be Like This for Long- Darius Rucker
How to Love- Lil Wayne (yes, not all his songs are vulgar)
Make Me Proud- Drake
Eyes Open- Taylor Swift
It Will Rain- Bruno Mars
Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)- Kelly Clarkson
You Found Me- The Fray
Fallin’- Alicia Keyes
Someone Like You- Adele
The One That Got Away- Katy Perry
If I Die Young- The Band Perry
For various reasons these songs touch me. I may tear up when I hear them but it helps to ease the pain of the bigger picture. I am no expert, but I have learned that in my life songs can really help say what I want to say but do not have the words myself.
I am in constant pain physically and emotionally and listening to music helps me. It takes my mind off things sometimes and sometimes helps me realize that there is more to life than everything that is happening right now. I miss when life was simpler, but I know now that it isn’t helpful always to hope for better in my own life, but it helps to know that I can deal with what is happening right now.
