I needed cheering up this afternoon. Long story, the joys of spending time with the family, but that’s not important right now.
One of my favourite ways to make myself feel better when I’m a bit down is to listen to a few carefully selected tunes. For me, I’ve put together a playlist on Spotify of some tracks that I know do the job of lifting my mood. That way I know there’s nothing in there that’s going to trigger a negative memory or just make me feel worse for another reason.
This afternoon, though, the song that really did it for me was a proper old favourite: “You Get What You Give” by New Radicals. Awesome. Can’t believe it’s 18 years old though!
