Let us all remember that everyone all around the world is experiencing different forms of hardship. Let us not forget the healing power of music.
My brother just called and lamented about $2,500 worth of repairs on his car that can't possibly even be worth that much, working. On top of his wicked school debt that likes to haunt him at all hours of the day, this news about his ill car was heartbreaking to hear.
I only mention this about my broski because it literally just happened while I was pasting the link to "West Coast" by Danism + Train.
As I put my headphones on, I had to remind the swell of painful feelings in my chest that I can do very little to heal the world's problems, let alone my brother's. My added negativity will do nothing for his situation or any other. Solutions take a calm heart and a clear mind. A dash of happiness can't hurt, either.
The lyrics ring out, "Don't get hooked up into the negative activity". These are wise words to remember. That's precisely what "West Coast" is doing for me right now- helping me rise above the negativity. I hope after listening, you can tap into that space, too.
