I love how music can take you places. I try to create different playlists for places I feel connected to, collecting music I’ve been listening to and what people have shared with me. These playlists transcend place and time and bring memories and good vibes.
Yesterday a song came on randomly, that I haven’t listened to in a long time. It triggered some memories too, but not the good kind. A flood of anxiety and flashes of past times. I had to skip the song and take a deep breath to continue my day.
It’s interesting how music triggers us in different ways. How sad music can pull us down and happy music lifts us up. How some tunes can help us be more productive and others distract us.
If you have any playlists you’d like to share with me, please do! I love discovering new music!
