The Playlist Shuffle

I am passionate about music!  I as mentioned in yesterday’s post, I have a playlist for everything.  Rarely do I just hit “shuffle”.  The thought almost makes me panic!  What if I am listening to my “Angry Music” one minute and then something from my “Be Still” playlist comes on next…followed by Showtunes?  Help!!!  Too much!  My emotions can’t handle this musical rollercoaster!  But, when Nel from https://reactionarytales.com/the-playlist-shuffle-tag/ posted this, I knew I wanted to participate!   I thought it would be good for me to take a risk and “shuffle” my music…  Here goes nothing!

Sanctuary

Music is such an important part of my life.    I am unable to think of the last time I turned on the T.V. or even watched a movie, but the last song I listened to was “Sanctuary” by Carrie Newcomer, just moments ago…if I am awake, music is floating in the air.

I am the type of person that has playlists for everything: playlists for painting, gardening playlists, workout playlists…even playlists based on my moods. You name the event, and I probably have a playlist for it!   As I sit here, writing my blog posts, the lyrics from the song “Sanctuary” make me pause…  I have listened to this song 100 times and can sing every word, but today, it resonates with my heart and soul.

Granted, I am a bit of a mushy sap these last few days. Wifey and I celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary this Friday.  I feel blessed beyond words to celebrate this magical day with my best friend, my soulmate…my wife.

We all have a “Sanctuary” inside of us that is our “safe place”.  Many of us also have a special “Sanctuary” in nature, such as the forest or seashore, that bring us peace and grounding.  These places become temples for our heart and soul.  People can be a “Sanctuary” as well.  I know I feel most at peace when I have Wifey by my side.  She grounds me…

During life’s busy times, it is most important to find your “Sanctuary“.  Enjoy this precious time and the gift of renewal it will bestow…

I hope you enjoy “Sanctuary” by Carrie Newcomer.  She has an amazing, rich alto voice which is completely mesmerizing!

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
