After I left my domestic abuse relationship, I found myself up against constant fear about the decisions I was making in my life. Did I make the right decisions? Am I making the right decisions now? Am I going in the right direction? What do I do? Am I going to be ok? How do I feel the fear and move forward anyway?
I often use music to get myself back on the track to a beautiful future -- the one I trust and believe in deep within my heart. If I am feeling overwhelmed, I pop on a song to reset my mind. If I am panicking about what is to come in the future, I listen to a song that brings me back to the present. If I am feeling paralyzed by anxiety, I turn up the music to get me back to my center.
When I am feeling untethered in the unknown, music has helped me ease my anxieties and then get back to a place of faith that everything is going to be alright, and knowing: i am safe. Kick that paralyzing fear in the rear with this Spotify playlist here (I've made it a collaborative playlist, so you can add your favorites.)
