There hasn’t been a time in my life where music wasn’t a huge part of who I am. I grew up on a wide variety of music, but I definitely have my favorites from each genre, as I’m sure we all do.
My taste in music changes with my moods, but I assume that’s pretty normal. I love country about 85% of the time, honestly, but I definitely change it up pretty often. When I’m in a hyped, happy mood, I love to listen to “today’s hits,” or rap/r&b. If I’m angry or sad, it’s usually rock. Music is just a huge part of who I am, and how I get through the day.
For as long as I can remember, writing has always been an outlet for me. It was a way to express how I was feeling or what I was going through without having to open up to someone else all of the time. It was healthy, and it was relieving. Whether the weight of the world was on my shoulders, or I was carefree and happy, I was always writing it down.
In middle school, I was obsessed with poetry and lyrics. My best friend and I put together a binder of our work as a keepsake, and I still have it to this day. It was something we enjoyed doing, and it was a creative way to express ourselves at different moments in our lives.
Today’s challenge could go so many different directions, and there is no right or wrong way to take it. With that said, I’m going to share a variation of my beliefs with you.
For starters, I’m one of the least judgmental people you will ever meet. We could disagree on 100% of things in our outlook on life, and I could still think you’re one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met. As adults, we do not have to see eye-to-eye on everything, but we should respect how others feel and see things.
One day, each and every one of us will be gone. There is no question about if, but when. Our loved ones, friends, co-workers, or anyone we simply made an impression on are the only parts of us that will remain in this world. We will only become stories told by those we’ve left behind. What will people say about you? How will you be remembered?
For this challenge, I’m supposed to list 10 things that I’d hope to be remembered for when my time has come and gone. By far, this has been one of the difficult parts of this 30 day blog challenge simply because we don’t really like to think about the end of our lives, but here we go.
Who else loves Netflix or Hulu? I’m a huge binger, honestly. I don’t pay for or use cable TV because I truly love Netflix and Hulu. Being able to watch an entire series from start to finish makes me so incredibly happy. With depression, it helps me break away from my reality at times, which I’m grateful for on most days.
None of us like the exact same things in life, and that’s perfectly OK. I’d like to share with you some of my favorite TV shows, and why. Each of them are different, but I love them all just the same.
Everyone experiences moments of happiness, whether it comes from someone you love, something that you enjoy, or something else. Happiness is beautiful on everyone, and we should all seek out positive ways to feel immensely happy.
As with any emotion, happiness is temporary — it comes and goes. It is a remarkable feeling, and can do wonderful things for our physical and mental health. When you experience extreme low’s like I do, it feels even more surreal when you feel pure joy. I’m going to share with you 5 things that make me happy, even though there are many, many more.
