Enter and you won't regret it!
Ever since J and I broke up, I have been avoiding listening to country music radio, or really radio at all. I like to be in control of what I'm listening to so that the music can tug on my heart strings when I don't want it to.
Music has the ability to change your life if you let it. I was afraid that it would hurt me though instead of help me, so I just...avoided it. I didn't play it, or I only listened to new stuff that didn't have memories attached to it. That seemed to work until I realized that I was really missing country music.
So a few weeks ago, I decided to suck it up and listen to it whether it made me sad or not. It's good stuff and I don't like that I allowed him to taint it for me.
Now, it's been a while since I've listened to the radio, so of course there's a million new songs playing one right after the other.
The first song I heard was...this one:
I started to sing along to the chorus after the first time it was sung and I seriously felt like my life had just changed...Music is such a powerful thing.
It may not have been the most amazing poetry or the most moving melody in the world, but it was exactly what I needed right then. And though I feel like a chronically unhappy young lady, this song truly made me feel like I just needed to hang in there. That the storm runs out of rain. The sun will come out and the muddy puddles that I accidentally splash in while walking will stop making my boots all dirty.
That I will smile and mean it some day.
Every storm runs out of rain...
