What are you listening to?

The other day I was on my way to work, and I just felt like dirt. You know the kind of feeling I’m talking about…tired, out of sorts, really down about how things are going. I was talking to my wife about it, and she suggested I listen to some music. I had a lot of work to do, and I couldn’t afford to feel lousy about myself any longer. So I put on some driving guitar music, and the most amazing thing happened…

…I started feeling better. What happened? What was the difference?

I realized I was listening to my own negative thoughts about how I saw myself and that day. Then I chose to listen to something more positive and uplifting (and somewhat heavy, to each their own 🙂 ), and it got me moving.

I had a day full of amazing appointments. I felt like I was on fire!

Every day we have to make a choice to listen to what brings us up, or what pulls us down. Think about all the things in your life that bring you down, and how you allow those messages to affect your life (the evening news, for example).

So what are you listening to?
