Music Really is Medicine

Did you ever have one of those days when you perceive that it would be easier to stay in bed, than it would to go about your day? I don't think I used to have these types of days quite so often, but for some reason, now I do. Maybe it's because there is so much uncertainty within our lives: Adam's job security, our kid's futures (including possible debt and happiness/success) our impending empty nest... Today was one of those days.

These are big things that I realize I have no control over. And I don't like it. So yes, I guess I still battle with anxiety, even with meds.  But, who wouldn't, or who doesn't, sometimes? So I went for a run. I am so very fortunate that I am still able to do this. Being sidelined for only nine days, because of knee pain, helped me to realize just how fortunate I am.

So I listened to Indigo Girls, Get Out the Map five times in a row.

When simple things like planning to go out to dinner with friends overwhelms you, you know it's time to clear you head, and try to take a step. Because any step towards anything, is better than doing nothing. At least for me.

Enough about my worrying. I was psyched that the next song that played while I was running, was Push It, by Salt-N-Pepa. It helped me to push the crappy anxiety away, as best I could.

Here's the song's disclaimer:  This video is... well it's Salt-N-Pepa. In my opinion it's much less promiscuous than many of the videos of today, and it's a blast to listen to!

Holy crap. Jordan committed, like two minutes ago, to Arcadia University!!

Thank you.
