It’s raining again. Outside and in.
I reach for my uplifting songs, and I’m pleased that I don’t cry through all of them.
When the bad thoughts, doubts, fears, and self harassment stampede through my mind, I have to ‘on purpose’ start saying good things out loud. I have to push the harassment aside, push away the darkness, and say loudly the good things that I want to focus on.
Part of my ritual when things get dark, is to sing. I had to find some happy songs. Most of these have been very popular, most of them are silly, but they do distract. I like the Minions in the Happy Video, I always smile at the Minions.
Here’s my list:
Pharrell Williams: Happy
Taylor Swift: Shake it off
Meghan Trainor: All About that Bass
Bruno Mars: Uptown Funk
Today I’m grateful for rain, cleansing rain. I’m grateful I can sing songs of praise, and songs of happiness. I’m grateful for the strength to clean my house. I’m grateful for my heart beat, and a physical body that works.
