Resource of the week
When it comes to music I’m pretty open minded. I’ll listen to anything, from Lois’s brothers jungle remixes to Tchaikovsky depending on my mood. Certain albums have however taken precedence since I have been in hospital. I couldn’t have predicted what these albums would have been however if you had told me I wouldn’t have been too surprised. I have always loved Fleetwood Mac, probably because I had been listening to it subconsciously for most of my childhood. I know it’s a bit before my time and I know some of the songs are a little depressing lyrically but Rumours is up there in the top 5 for me. The same applies for Bob Marley. I’ve always liked reggae but I never actually get around to listening to it much…. until now. I have practically had Legend on repeat and i challenge anyone to be in a bad mood whilst that album is playing.
Im big into podcasts usually and I still am, but I would say I have listened to more music the last couple of months than I had in the previous year. I am also enjoying a couple of books but thats another blog. The ability to switch off is so important and just like the painting yesterday, being able to relax and have a bit of peace helps you through the often monotonous and stressful days.
It’s important to find your vice and since my accident I have found a few. Find what works for you, music, reading, writing, whatever it is, find it and use it. When those negative thoughts creep in you don’t have to dwell on them, you don’t need to make it worse. I’m not saying avoid the truth or refuse to face things but arm yourself with some distractions and don’t be afraid to use them, for at the end of the day don’t worry about a thing because every little thing is gonna be alright.✌️🎶
P.s. Music recommendations welcome.
P.p.s. They’ve given in and I’ve got some new wheels….. first practice starts tomorrow weather permitting 🏎
