Thought this might help...

When I'm sad or stressed or worrying out things, I always tend to listen to music as a kind of release of those feelings now. I keep a journal of lyrics and such that relate to my emotions, without actually having to write down specific things. I just thought I'd share lyrics with you to a song I love to listen to when I need a little inspiration. It's called "Better Things" by Dar Williams...

"Here's wishing you the bluest sky
And hoping something better comes tomorrow
Hoping all the verses rhyme,
And the very best of choruses to
Follow all the doubt and sadness
I know that better things are on the way.

Here's hoping all the days ahead
Won't be as bitter as the ones behind you
Be an optimist instead,
And somehow happiness will find you.
Forget what happened yesterday,
I know that better things are on their way.

It's really good to see you rocking out
And having fun,
Living like you just begun.
Accept your life and what it brings.
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things.
I know tomorrow you'll find better things.

Here's wishing you the bluest sky
And hoping something better comes tomorrow
Hoping all the verses rhyme,
And the very best of choruses to
Follow all the drudge and sadness
I know that better things are on the way.

I know you've got a lot of good things happening up ahead.
The past is gone, it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things.
I know tomorrow you'll find better things"

Good luck to everyone who is beginning or has begun their recovery. I find the way that I made it this far is by finding a new release for the pain and I hope a little insight to mine helps. I know its not a replacement, but it does me good. Angry music when mad, imspirational music when sad etc etc. Its a good way to relax, calm down, and think things through.

I go into musical mode and blast RENT or anything by Stephen Sondheim through the house. Or Barbra Streisand or Bette Midler (I sound like a gay man) I have strange musical tastes. I have to feel good about myself to listen to music that isn't positive. Tori Amos and Jewel always inspire me and Barenaked Ladies always make me laugh. It's great to have something like this as release. You should find other things too. I journal, go for walks and talk loudly to God about how pretty everything is and what a good job he did (all the locals think I've got a screw loose but I get away with it coz I'm an actress and we're all insane), I knit (not coz I enjoy knitting so much but because i love giving someone a gift that i made.) There are so many ways to pour yourself out into something beautiful and creative. If you're musically inclined you could start writing your own songs. If you can't make up tunes, use ones you like and write your own lyrics to them. They can become your own personal feel good songs.
