What makes me feel better, always?
Well, that depends on what the problem is, naturally, however most of the time the answer for me is…listen to music, of course! Music is a balm for my soul, has been my friend and constant companion for most of my life.
Right at this moment, I don’t feel well at all. I’m being eaten alive by guilt over not spending enough time with my Dad and brother on Christmas. I selfishly went home with my husband after our family gift exchange without thought or consideration of what they were going to do for dinner. How did that make them feel? I don’t know, because I didn’t ask. It has bothered me for two days, so the way to make myself feel better is to go apologize to my Dad today. Telling him I’m sorry and offering to make up for it in some way will help me get over it…if only a little bit.
In the meantime, I’m writing and I have music softly playing in another room.
