When life throws you a bunch of C R A Z Y – what do you do?
We all will have times where life just bombards us with crazy.
We will have circumstances that we didn’t ask for; that we don’t want or we don’t have time for just thrown at us.
One thing I know for sure, if you act immediately after “receiving” the crazy, things will not go well at all.
So, really – what can we do…
SING. Seriously, I’m not even kidding here.
Music has a way of expressing what the heart can’t. Music has a way of speaking when we can’t find words on our own. Music can truly sooth the savage beast and help dry an ocean of tears.
When crazy is surrounding you, take 15 minutes and step away from the situation. Que up your favorite play list and let your heart be swept away by your favorite tunes.
Maybe you’ll step back into a simpler time with Glenn Miller and enjoy the soothing sounds of his orchestra. Maybe you’ll put on some oldies and think of just how far Buddy Holly may have made it had his plane not crashed. You can put on some sappy love songs and think of someone you love or someone that loves you. Maybe you’ll put on some praise and worship music and remember that you are never alone and remind your heart that the One who spoke this world into existence is the One who holds YOU.
Music…is powerful enough to take a dark “silent” night and fill it full of fear. (Try watching a horror flick with the volume down, you won’t be as scared)
Music…is powerful enough to get your toes tapping, your mind singing a tune that you haven’t heard in months and keep it in the forefront of your mind for a few days. Yeah, you know I’m telling the truth because that random tune was stuck in your head for so long! or if I mention “you are my sunshine…my only sunshine…”)
Music… is powerful enough to speak when your heart feels it can’t express feelings adequately enough.
Whatever the crazy situation, there is a song for that. Find it! Let it inspire you, motivate you and encourage you.
So, when life throws a bunch of crazy at me – I grab my Sol Republic Headphones and turn up the music and let it take me away for just a little bit. When I come back, the situation seems a bit more under control and I can then face the crazy…er..ummm music….with confidence.
Where has music taken you?
What are your favorite kinds of music?
Do you have one song that you can listen to over and over again?
And lastly – (if you don’t answer anything else, please do answer this one) what is your FAVORITE ONE HIT WONDER?
(Just a bit of free info here, Music is part of my everyday world. I am a horrible singing kind of gal but do so freely and if no one is around, loudly. When others are around, I tone it down just a bit. I love music! I love all kinds of music. )
As part of an amazing team of influencers – the #VZWBuzz Lifestyle Blogger Team, I received a pair of Sol Republic Headphones to review. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own. **These are half the cost of beats and they truly do stay put, I love these headphones.**
