We all have been there, those days were you just feel like nothing is going your way, like things are just not on your side. I know I have. Coming around to my second trimester a lot of things have changed. I've meet new people, people that make me laugh and feel good, but with that, I've also lost some people as well. For me, losing a person is hard, once I get to know them it's really difficult for me to let them go. So going through these changes, losing some people that meant and still mean so much to me, is tough. I still have a lot of my close friends, but losing anyone that has made an impact on your life is rough. I've had my share of bad days or even bad weeks, and in no means am I telling you this for pity. That is not what I'm trying to get out of these blogs what so ever. I'm sharing this with you so that if you're going through something similar, you have someone to relate to. I think if I can help someone out or give them a sense of comfort, then I'm doing something right. Anyway, through these bad times I've found that one thing that will always be there for me not matter what time or place, Music (bet you didn't see that one coming haha). But in all honesty, I don't know where I would be with out music. It's away for me to either face and express my emotions, or drown them out for the time being until I'm ready to confront them. Without music those hard days would be so much harder, I wouldn't have a way to get out my emotions in a healthy way or wouldn't have that one song that could completely change my attitude in a matter of two minutes. Music, for me, is that one best friend that will one; always be there and two; always know exactly what to say. I'm so glad I have a way to really express myself through music and have those songs that share exactly what I'm going through or feeling. Those are the songs that make my bad days just a little bit brighter.
While I've had those bad days through last trimester and this trimester. I've also had some really amazing days that would be worth reliving again. I've had those days where I just couldn't stop smiling and everything was just turning out okay. Even some days where I felt so unbelievably loved that it made me feel like I could do anything. Remembering these days reminds me of how fortunate I am to have such an amazing family and group of friends. Just like music I don't know what I would do with out these amazing people in my life. What makes music so great, is the fact that it can relate with really any emotion. So on those days where I feel like I could fly if I wanted to I like to listen to happy upbeat music, or just silly songs that my friends and me can laugh and sing along too. Having something as great as music available to me basically when ever I want it is so amazing and has really been a key role in my emotions and attitude for the greater majority of my teen life.
