I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday and I hope it was spent among family and friends. My mother sent me an email a couple of weeks ago and shared with me a fun article she had read in the newspaper. It was a list of the Top Ten Thanksgiving Day songs compiled by the Daily Herald. You can access the article here.
That made me think about the songs I associate with the holiday or songs that make me feel more gratitude in my life. Below are 5 songs from my list.
Sly & The Family Stone: Thank You
Bill Withers: Lean On Me
Louis Armstrong: What a Wonderful World
American Authors: Best Day of My Life
Johnny Mercer & The Pied Pipers: Accentuate the Positive
Do you ever have those days when enough is enough?
In fact, I have it every Friday while driving this intense commute. By the 5th day of the week, I really don’t want to be behind the wheel of the car which leads me to this post.
The only thing that keeps me going is music. I listen to all genres and all ages of music (yes, I have been known to sing LET IT GO within the safe confines of my steel beast). Music seems to have the ability to keep me from driving like a maniac and being irritated with my fellow drivers (as I sure they are with me).
So here is the music that I enjoyed while commuting to the office today. What do you listen to in order to stay sane?
Here we are at another Friday. I am so glad because my body is achy and tired but I am also SUPER sad. If you live in one area for too long, guess what happens . . . you get attached. That’s right–you get attached. I have lived in Utah for 12 years now. That is 11 years longer then I originally thought that I would live here. All of these years later, I know that Utah was the right decision and staying here this long has been the right decision as well. I have wonderful friends, I live in a beautiful neighborhood with wonderful neighbors, I have favorite haunts I like to visit, I love all of the things to do outside, and most importantly–I love being close to my family especially the nieces and nephew. They really are the highlight to my life. 🙂
So now, that brings me to this week . . . I took a new job. I am excited for it and the new challenges that it will present. Mostly, I am just eager to have a schedule again. I get frustrated being busy but not knowing where all of my time is going during the day.
This new job means that I will be moving back to the Portland-Vancouver area. I am very excited about this since as most of you know, I love the Northwest A LOT!!! I get to be there also at my most favorite time of year: FALL. Awesome for me!! 🙂
So this brings us back to the music post for today. Enjoy my 5 picks for starting over and if you have any favorites; please share them!
