I love music. I lost my ability to sing after being on a ventilator in 2004 but I will still attempt to sing when I am moved to do so. I have benefited from having the ability to have music on my smart phone and take it with me wherever I may go. I am still musically inclined and love to play the piano and will go off and play hymns and worship songs to restore my soul when feel the need for re-centering and peace. I really do not like to play for others though because I learned to play a keyboard with headphones when I was little so as to not bother my father who was like walking on eggshells when you were around him when he came home from work and when we got home from school. Those head phone to that keyboard gave me countless hours of music to play uninterrupted and floating away from reality. I wish I could still sing with the voice I had from pre-ventilator days but that is never going to happen. I am content to carry music in my soul and have it carry me through my days. What song keeps you going? What are some of your favorites? I’d love to hear. This summer I went through a rough patch and listen to the song “Swim” quite a bit to get through the dark, depressive days after my friend committed suicide. There are several others I like as well and have a while mental health recovery playlist on my music account. Please share your favorites in the comments.
