How Country Music Changed My Life

road trip, country music, texas

August marks one year since I fell in love with country music. Growing up, I never really cared for it. I didn’t understand it, and I preferred singing along with the Spice Girls, Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, etc. As I got older, I started liking R&B and Hip-Hop too. I enjoyed a country song here and there, but it was never the first type of music I would turn to. […]

“Die Fun” by Kacey Musgraves (Audio)

What Makes You Happie? It’s nice to be encouraged to live life to the fullest. “Die Fun” reminds us that we won’t live forever. We may not always have the second chance we think we will. So, while we can, we should do what makes us happy. We should try the things we’ve been wanting to try. We never know what tomorrow may bring. So, we might as well take […]

Mondays are tough. I have never heard anyone say, “I love Mondays!” We’re sleepy, we’re cranky, and we’re not looking forward to starting another workweek. We just want to start the weekend over again. Luckily, we have music. There are few artists that I can always trust to turn my stressed mind into a relaxed one.

“Save Myself” by Ed Sheeran (Audio)

We often jump at the opportunity to help others before working on ourselves. It’s difficult to face our own problems. Plus, it feels good to know that we have acted selflessly by helping someone else. But if we give too much of ourselves, we’ll be left with nothing. And we cannot expect others to take care of us just because we try to take care of them. There are many […]

To anyone who’s felt like no one can understand how hard of a time you’re going through, LISTEN TO THIS SONG. Sometimes we just don’t have the emotional energy to fight on, think positively, or put a fake smile on our face. And while it’s great to be encouraged, it’s difficult to hear and take advice from people who don’t truly understand how we’re feeling. We can’t always just decide […]
