This week’s black and white post is going to be very different from the rest. I decided to share my playlist after one of you lovely folks asked what inspires me. The answer is music. Truth be told it’s one of the few things that inspires me. The right song can ignite a spark in you that can burn through a lifetime. I’m one of those people who doesn’t listen to a lot of mainstream music. In fact, you’ll catch me listening to the same songs and artists over and over again. Most of the songs I love listening to take me back to a particular moment in time and hearing the words and sound feels very much like de ja vu. I’m one for deep thinking so music with lyrics that have substance tend to move me.
One might say I tend to be drawn to sad songs. They seem to be the ones that move me the most. Whenever I feel down, I listen to music. And if the song can move me to tears in that moment then it means it’s giving me the comfort I need to let it all out. I always say after sadness comes joy so it’s no wonder I feel inspired to find joy in other things after listening to these songs. The first song on my playlist, Holocene by Bon Iver, is one I accidentally came across when looking for inspiration on Youtube after feeling unsure of what type of content to create. And now it is my go to song whenever I feel stuck. I’m actually listening to it right now while typing up this post. It always seems to get me writing down creative thoughts. And then we have A Life That’s Good which I came across while watching the TV show Nashville. It’s a song of gratitude. One that makes me feel very grateful for the little things in life like family and friends.
The list goes on, and so do the circumstances in which I came about them. You can listen to my playlist here to see the type of music that inspires me. And hopefully it gives you an insight to more of me.***If you want to edit like me, you can! Grab a copy of my eBook here.***
