Music just speaks so many words when you don't know how to put things into words yourself, there is always the right song out there. Right now, my overplayed song is 'The Climb' by Myley cyrus though I prefer the Joe Mcelderry version so that's the one I listen too. It acts as a reminder to me that even though today I might feel defeated I won't always feel like that and there is a climb to be made and a jounrey to carry on with. Most songs are on a similar level for me right now, as I am trying to achieve so much, infact I am achieving so much, and sometimes I just want to fall down and sleep because it's hard work to change myself from silly kid gem, to professional teacher gem. But, I've made it this far, further than I'd ever even contemplated possible.
I also have songs to match my mood ready for when I'm feeling really really low, they aren't inspirational, they match exactly how I'm feeling and they give me some way to be angry, be sad or whatever and just get those feelings over with a bit quicker than having to sit and deal with them in my head alone.
Music and sounds and sometimes peace and silence can be an answer to the soul that it needs. I'd be very lost without it.
