Music is one of the greatest pleasure of life for me. Growing up, I tried playing at least 4 or 5 different instruments, but unfortunately, none of them ever really “stuck.”
I have, however, retained a deep love and appreciation for music of all kinds. I find that certain songs tend to build the soundtrack to different parts of my life, and it can be really cathartic to look back and listen to certain songs that have played such an important role in getting me where I am today.
Through these first (almost 50!) days of sobriety, I’ve found some songs especially powerful. I thought I’d share here – maybe to lift someone else’s spirits, and so I can look back once I’m further along to remember the music that really lifted me up when I needed it most.
