I am still listening to music as I write this.
I never really stop listening.
The music dictates my mood instead of the other way around.
Most people will listen to sad songs if they are sad, peppy songs if they are happy, you know the rest.
But I don’t work that way.
I put my songs on shuffle.
With that action I also put my mood on shuffle.
It is fun, honestly.
My entire day is determined by the first song I hear.
This ritual allows me to skip all the nonsense in actually deciphering my own emotions and hormones.
This is easier, simpler.
