My name is Victoria and I’m addicted to listening to music while overthinking my life.
Okay maybe not technically “addicted”, but it is one of my favorite things to do. Well, I don’t always love overthinking, but let me explain.
Today was Sunday, aka time for self-care.
To be quite honest, even though I wasn’t the most productive today, I didn’t partake in enough self care. Well, self care is productive so duh if I wasn’t productive I didn’t practice enough self care.
Realizing this about twenty minutes ago, I decided to take some time for myself (hence me writing). Occasionally, I do this thing in which I let myself jam and get lost in whatever music I am listening to. It’s like free writing, but for my brain as I bop.
I just let myself sing along, no matter how awful I sound. I let myself feel the music, whether it makes me cry or get up and dance. I space out, truly appreciating the music or lyrics or both.
I love getting lost in music, it really helps clear my head. Like, prior to his jam sesh I had a lot of insignificant shit on my mind, but jammin brought me back to reality.
Not everything is in my control, nor will everything ever be in my control. My now problems are mostly little shit that won’t be problems months or even weeks from now. I am not as alone in this world as I feel, because the artists behind these songs that I relate to have obviously been through experiences I relate to.
These are just a few of the grounding things that music frees my mind to remember.
I might be super duper hella stressed, but I’ve been super duper hella stressed before and guess what?
I’M STILL HERE.
I know you’re like “holy moly I didn’t even think of that”.
Well it’s true, many of my problems are “now problems”, much of my current stress or sadness will not have to be endured forever.
Hi, my name is Victoria, and I’m starting to feel a lot better about this thing called life.
