Songs for Sad Days

Let’s talk about being sad.

No one wants to be sad, but sometimes, life is too much. There are days when it feels like we’re carrying an elephant on our backs, or it’s sitting on our chest, keeping us from getting out of bed. This happens to some of us more often than others, but I’m sure all of us can think of a time when we felt weighed down by life.

Not long ago, I found myself “stuck” in one of these periods, when I felt like what I described above. There were a number of things that helped me push through, but I relied on my music a lot. Music in general has always been a comfort to me, but there are certain songs that help me the most when I’m going through a hard time. I know we all have different tastes in music, but today, I wanted to share a few of my favorite songs to listen to when times are tough.

Week In Review – August 18

Happy Friday!

This week I have a shorter WIR post (kinda like last week – oops). I’ve been spending this week getting ready to move back in at school, and I finally did yesterday, so you can understand that it’s been a bit busy around here. But anyway, more on that in a second.

On Monday, I wrote a blog post called “Talking About Things You Love.” This is something that’s been on my mind for a while, and I finally put it all into words. If talking about your passions is hard, I have some thoughts on that here.

And this week from the Musings Archives, I have the follow-up to my Top 5 Heroines post, my Top 5 Heroes. It’s always fun to put together these lists of characters and whatnot, so maybe I’ll do more sometime.

Finally, for anyone who was wondering, I had a great time with my friend last weekend! I had a safe drive both ways, and we had a good time together, talking and exploring the area. I’m really glad I was able to make the trip!

As for the rest of the week…
