Last night as I drove home from work a song came on the radio. It is a song from my youth that I love but in the current circumstances shot right to my heart. I could not help but cry as I listened to Collin Raye sing "Love Me" and thought of my grandma waiting for my grandpa in the afterlife.
Music is something I try to stay very conscious of because it does have the ability to have immediate effects on emotions. Songs can cut straight to the heart, either uplifting me or bringing up tender thoughts. I could have changed it when it came on. I know the song well enough to recognize well before the chorus. But I let it play and let the tears fall. In that moment it was a part of the process and a gift from the universe.
This morning I did not turn on music as I showered and got ready. I kept it silent because I was processing a dream I had last night. Yet as I opened my bedroom door I realized I had a song in my head all the same, another little gift. This morning the line going through my head was, "only rainbows after rain, the sun will always come again... but you gotta keep your head up." Andy Grammer's voice ringing through my head and leaving me feeling uplifted and ready to start this new day. Thanks, Universe.
I'm so grateful for music and its ability to elicit emotion. I'm grateful to be conscious of what I choose to listen to and I'm grateful to allow these small gifts from the Universe when one is played that goes straight to my heart. I'm grateful that as the song came on last night in the car, the dark clouds parted and left rays of sunshine to shine through as divine support. I'm grateful to notice these little cues from my world and accept their comfort. And I'm grateful for the song today of hope and strength.
What support do you notice from the universe around you? Do you consciously choose your music and the atmosphere it creates?
May today bless us with beauty and support. May we notice the little messages of love that await us. Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
