Music is such an important part of our lives, regardless of if we recognize it or not.
I can hear a song from my childhood, my teen years, or my 20’s and all of the memories and emotions from that time come flooding back.
Be it a memory from the early 80’s, riding around in the back of a pick up with my niece singing “Mickey” at the top of our lungs, or dirt roading with my best friend in high school, jamming out to “Smells like teen spirit”, then having him threaten to kill me if I ever told anyone that he listened to Nirvana! Maybe it’s a memory from a night in Deep Ellum at Trees as a cover band belts out the anthem of my life:
Can we forget about the things I said when I was drunk I didn’t mean to call you that I can’t remember what was said or what you threw at me Please tell me Please tell me why My car is in the front yard and I’m sleeping with my clothes on Came in through the window last night And your gone Gone It’s no surprise to me I am my own worst enemy… Lit
Music soothes the mind and heals the soul. It can express emotions long bottles up and suppressed.
Music can pump you up and help you to over come any mental or physical barriers you may be struggling with.
This is why I chose to give away a $10 e-certificate from iTunes as my first ever giveaway prize. iTunes did not furnish this $10 e-certificate, nor do they sponsor FindingChristi. This is simply my way of saying thanks to my readers.
I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing my lil’ ol’ blog.
So, with the help of random.org, I am very pleased to announce the winner of FindingChristi’s very first giveaway of a $10 e-certificate from iTunes is:
Drum roll, please
