Jams Speaking To Me Right Now:
Music that I've been cranking up lately. These songs mean something to me for many different reasons. Some are super uplifting and some just fit whatever mood I may be in at the moment. You may find these song selections hit all the emotions. Music is extremely important for my personal mental well-being. Music can lift me out of a dark place or keep me flying high. It can help reinforce a feeling I am having. Music does so many different things!
I'll keep a rotation going to keep the selections fresh.
A Few Jams I've Made:
This section is for exactly what it sounds like. I like to make up original tunes and I want to share them. Music is the silver lining surrounding a lot of what I'm trying to do for mental health awareness. I am not a professional musician. This is just a fun hobby of mine.
* I play a snippet on my acoustic guitar, of this awesome Foo Fighter's tune, for my Podcast episode "A Lot Of Changes Going On, But Not Everything Has To Change"
I start off my blog "I'm Excited...I'm Apprehensive...Wait, What?" talking about the impact of this song as it relates to my wife and I hitting the road for some rest and relaxation.
My wife and I's wedding song.
We have got to Let Go of things which weigh us down. I've been working hard on improving new habits and letting go of old habits that do not serve a purpose. Especially anything which negatively affects my mental well being.
I wrote this tune for my wife. My Rock. She is the center of my core group of people. She helps to point me in the right direction when I am struggling. She is The One.
It is so easy to get stuck in our pasts. We also tend to over worry about our futures. Both of these elements will remain a part of our lives. We just need to move our focus away from them and worry more about Being Present, Today.
Our lives don't always have to be driven by negative occurrences. They happen, but we need to really hone in on the positive moments. For me, when my mind is feeling good, I like to let my Mind Wander and sit back In Wonder at what it can accomplish.
