Hello and Welcome back to “Music Reflection Mondays” unfortunately, I was too exhausted to post this yesterday hence I adjusted the title to post it today. I hope that all is well with each of you.
Today, I would like to highlight some songs that helped me get through some tough moments in my life that I didn’t think I would get over but I have. 🙂 For those of you wondering if this post was triggered by a recent incident have no worries it wasn’t. I’m happy to report that all is well. 🙂
I was in the car listening to the radio when a couple of songs were played that took me back and they made me feel all sorts of emotions sad, happy and grateful all at the same time. It was in these moments of reflection that made me realize just how much music has been a part of my life.
Some of the music gave me strength when I was weak, courage when I was afraid and comfort when I sad. I can truly say that listening to the words of some of those songs helped speed up my healing process.
The music for me was never used to forget what happened but rather help me move past it. If you listen to the right kind of music maybe, just maybe it can do the same for you too.
Some of my favourites old and new included:
- Tank – I can’t Make You Love Me
- Boyz II Men – Doin’ Just Fine
- Kelly Clarkson – Stronger
- Brandy – Have You Ever

My list can go on and on but I won’t. 🙂 Music feeds the soul and has the potential to soothe the heart and mind as well. Don’t let the pressures of life keep you down. We’re all going through something so don’t give up, keep moving.
Have a wonderful night and a blessed.
