Some weeks have an easy flow. Everything goes as planned, events fall neatly into place, and the world turns on its axis, and the sun rises in the east. Then we experience periods that try our souls. We encounter roadblocks, red lights, and unexpected problems in quick succession. Saying our plans are a disaster is an understatement, especially when there is no obvious answer to the challenges confronting you. We must work, pulling apart the snarls, creating unique solutions, and smoothing the road ahead.
The process is stressful. It requires long hours and produces tension and anxiety. Music is an enjoyable way to relax, unwind, and gain the fortitude to move forward. You can’t hold stress while the music plays. Reading also works, especially as we watch our hero struggle, fight, and succeed in the journey. In music and reading, we find the courage to continue.
Does music ease your day?
Keep on writing.
