It always amazes me just how much music can lift my mood. A few 80’s songs in the car and even if I am depressed I start singing along with it.
Today my mood was somewhat better. I was kind of in a meh zone. However tonight I turned on my tunes and played one of my games and zoned everything out and I started to feel more positive. The longer I listened though the more I wanted to sing my lungs out.
I grabbed my iphone and usb speaker and hopped in the shower and turned those tunes up even louder and sang my brains out.
I feel like I’ve sat through a couple of therapy sessions. It feels wonderful. I need to remember that before I had a home where I listened to music every single day. Every single day.
Now I live mostly without music and it is apparently affecting my moods as well as everything else that is going on. I need to remember that I will perk up if I am listening to my tunes. Maybe it won’t completely pull me out of a depression but it will help.
