Then my husband, learning I had woke with an earwig, turned on some music for us to listen to while we got ready. It was bouncy, which I love. So there I was bopping along to the music and feeling completely in love with life and I just knew that was what I wanted to share today.
Music is such a powerful tool to shift your mood. It has the ability to evoke strong emotions as well as bring back powerful memories. But it's up to you which emotions and memories you are calling on. Yes, sometimes those sad songs are our favorite for a sentimental reason but if we only listen to the sad ones then our life takes on that shadow.
By consciously choosing your music you can create your day, your experience, and your reality. So what songs will you choose today? What earwig will you purposely plant in your ear? What songs evoke the emotions and experience you want to have today?
I'm so grateful for the end of the song "I Mua" that repeats over and over again "what a beautiful life." I'm grateful for the song "The Sound of Sunshine", by Michael Franti. I'm grateful for the song "Rainbow" by G. Love and Jack Johnson. And I'm grateful to have a whole playlist of happy, smile-inspiring music.
I'm grateful to bop around this morning. I'm grateful to let my heart and happiness rise up. And I'm grateful to know that I have created this beautiful day with my intention and through my actions. Today will be a great day!
May today bless you with uplifting music. May you find ways to create joy in your life, however that may look to you. Have a beautiful day!
