Experience Serenity

Music plays such a huge part in my life, so it's not surprising that I turn to music when I'm having a bad Fibro. day or when I'm just fed up with everything. I find that it's so hard to stay positive when your body is telling you to never leave bed and the people around you don't understand what you're going through (as hard as they may try). So I've compiled a playlist that always makes me smile and breathe a sigh of relief. So I thought I'd share it with you =)

(1) "I Got the Sun in the Morning" from the play Annie Get Your Gun
(2) "Here Comes the Sun"--The Beatles
(3) "Innocent"-- Our Lady Peace (David Cook's version is cool too)
(4) "Good Day"-- Jewel
(5) "The Middle"-- Jimmy Eat World
(6) "Love is All Around (Mary Tyler Moore Theme)"-- Joan Jett
(7) "Carry On My Wayward Son"-- Kansas
(8) "These Hard Times"-- Matchbox 20
(9) "Float On"-- Modest Mouse
(10) "Smile"-- Nat King Cole
(11) "You Get What You Give"-- New Radicals
(12) "This Town"-- OAR
(13) "Downtown"-- Petula Clark
(14) "Stand"-- Rascal Flatts
(15) "Beautiful Day"-- U2
(16) "Stuck in a Moment"-- U2

I seriously recommend listening to all of these songs. Most of them have inspirational lyrics to them, but a couple just make me smile.

What about you? What do you do when you just feel like you can't move on? Do you have a special playlist too?
