Just put on a song and smile, smile, smile

Sometimes you’re freaking exhausted – emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually – empty, it’s just all run dry.

There’s no rhyme or reason, nothing to blame, nothing to tell you why. It’s just the way it is.

And right then, in that moment it’s ok to let go, let the tears fall, your makeup run and your cheeks glisten. But once you’ve finished , put on a song. Put on ‘that song’ the one that can lift you up when you’re down, make you smile when you frown. No… not everything will suddenly be fixed, but that’s ok because, for now, it’s gone away.

Put it on repeat and carry on with life, tidy, clean, polish and gleam…

Just let it drain away the negativity, let it cleanse your soul in the way that, sometimes , only music can.

My song is ‘Life Less Ordinary ‘ by the levellers, what’s yours?

    Cafe del Mar(Energy 52) or Insomnia(Faithless), do it for me, not a surprise to you I guess.

    No surprise, no, was thinking that Faithless would be one for you when I was writing this
