Typically I am an upbeat person; it takes a lot to put me in a funk, but when it does happen, music really does help to pull me out of the hole I am in. I know that for many, inspirational gospel songs, with meaningful, uplifting lyrics do the trick, but for me, I like upbeat, “make me feel happy” songs!
Typically there is no rhyme nor reason as to what gets my goat on a particular day, but the song “Ain’t Never Gonna’ Break My Stride” along with the awesome video (just check out the backup dancers) ALWAYS makes me smile, and reminds me to keep on going; ain’t nothing, not even CML, is going to keep me down!
Another make me feel happy song is “Knee Deep”. I LOVE the Caribbean, the ocean, the sand and the blue, blue water; not to mention the great acoustic guitar that simply makes me feel like dancing! Finding the Key to Paradise, is often as simple as being knee deep in the water somewhere…..
And since this challenge limits us to three songs, my third pick of the day would have to be “Bless the Broken Road”, it is the song that I walked down the aisle to, when my husband and I got married; many of us have walked down broken roads, taken the wrong path or the long way to get where we are today.
I do not doubt that I will continue to veer to the left or the right at times, but as long as God is blessing my broken road, I will always find my way.
I really needed a pick up today, and this gave it to me. I'm having a bad day emotionally, so I needed this. Thanks for sharing it with me. I will have to think of some that make me happy. Off of the top of my head, I think of "Thank you for being my friend", from the Golden Girls, and I'll have to come up with a few others. I love the ones that you picked. Hang in there....MillieReplyDelete
Seems as though we were BOTH having a bad day yesterday! I am glad I gave you some joy! Those dancers in the green ALWAYS make me smile!
Thank you for sharing "Thank you for being my Friend" you gave me the pick up that I needed.
Blessings to you,
