30 Songs in 30 Days, Days 21 and 22 - Songs you listen to when you're happy/sad

Happiness just isn't an emotion that comes easily to me.

I think it's overrated.

Now joy...that's another thing.

I remember the joy I felt when my daughter was born and she was placed into my arms for the first time.

I don't need music when I'm feeling joyful.

Sadness, however, is something I struggle with every day. Music does help. Music can inspire me. Music can remind me that I'm still here, and that someone else has felt the same way I do sometimes.

Music can remind me that I'm not alone.

Shaking it out with Florence...

I'm still alive with Pearl Jam...

Not fading to black with Metallica...

I'm never alone with Patty Griffin.
