Feel positive with music....

Right now I am so thankful for music. I have always been one to put a song to a situation. There is only a few types of music that I really do not like which are rap, heavy metal and country. There are some country singers that I can listen to but honestly I cannot handle the twangy, songs about ones dog dying, their truck breaking down, or beating themselves up over yet another failed relationship. Sorry......just my opinion. I do not look down on those who like it, I just have never felt that it was positive music.

There are so many songs that remind me of a certain moment. I have added most of them to my playlist. With all of the concerts I have been too, and life situations I have been faced with, I cannot help but to feel happy when I listen to music. Of course I put all the positive ones on my playlist. The ones that go with silly and intimate moments with Jamie as well as concerts with her and weddings I had attended. Of course I had to add some of my favorites from Amy Grant and other songs that just make me feel good. The Nickleback, Daughtry and Pink songs make me laugh because my kids like to dance to them and belt them funny! And some of those songs have special meanings to me.

I honestly believe that if we are not feeling so positive or are in a bad mood, that if we get lost in music that makes us feel good, we will feel much better almost immediately. It is even more wonderful when you can belt out the tunes with a good friend, or your children. Those are moments you will never forget.
