Today, I feel as though I’m in a funk. I’m not in a bad mood, and many things that happened over the weekend were really good! Yet, with the overcast weather and my thoughts still a wondering, I only want to sit in my funk. I tend to choose music that amplifies my current mood more than helping my mood get better.
I crave slow songs, some about pain or heartache, all that let me sit comfortably in my current mood. I don’t know if this is normal or what others do but maybe I should try something different. Instead of starting my daily dreaded 3:30 task of phone calls while listening to the same sad songs, I’ll try something happy and optimistic. I wonder if that will help me get over these winter blues.
Today I shared my new cookbook with a friend at work. This cookbook is full of weird and crazy ice cream flavors. While she wouldn’t even try some of them I followed her up with, “I’ll try anything once.” It’s true; I will try anything once (at least food). So how about good for me, make me smile music? I think I’ll give it a go!
