Music Is Therapy For The Soul


I know, she is already back with another post and it hasn't even been 24 hours yet. I have been wanting to share a little piece of what gets me through, inspires me and allows me to deal with infertility through the ups and downs.  Music is cheap therapy.  Yes, there are many things that also contribute but the feeling of playing a good relatable song to whatever mood you are in is therapeutic. So without further ado here are the songs on my playlist that I love. Most of them are not about infertility but the lyrics speak to me in some way and I can connect to the song if I direct it towards infertility.  I will add some of the video links but to keep it from uploading to slow I will just add some of the titles and you can copy that into YouTube(my YT link is to the right of my homepage to get my whole playlist or you can just scroll through the last video) if you like.  If you have any that you would like to share please comment them below! Thank you and I hope you can connect to some and enjoy at least one.
Lets start with the downers and end on a high note with the uppers tomorrow. They are not necessarily all negative songs, but they are slow played and the lyrics can be sad depending on your mood or how it relates to your struggle. That is what I mean by downers. I am a Debbie downer song girl for sure. So, enjoy you miserable little fools!
 Sara Haze, "Addiction" ~ This is my one of favorite songs on the playlist because infertility to me can be such an addiction just trying to conceive year after year. We become obsessed to say the least. This song helps me remember not to lose myself through this struggle.

Green day "21 Guns"~ I know weird song right? The lyrics speak to me:

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last
You're in ruins...

Superchick, "Beauty from Pain" ~ This song is by a Christian pop/rock band and it lets me feel like even though this journey holds a lot of pain someday there will be beauty at the end of the story.

Avril Lavigne, "Slipped Away" ~ This song is emotional and is relatable to me not only if you have suffered a miscarriage but a loss of any loved one. Crying will be guaranteed. Sorry.

Pink, "Beam me up" ~ Another of my favorites! Another song about loss and wanting to be with that person(unborn child) "even just for a minute" I have managed to not cry now on good days.  I can really belt this one out in the shower in case your wondering.

Francesca Battistelli, "Behind the Scenes: ~ Unlike myself who blogs to the public about my struggle there are millions of women who sit in silence. I was one of those women for many years so this song speaks to my heart so much.
Even though I’ve got the lines rehearsed
A picture only paints a thousand words
Things aren’t always what they seem
You’re only seeing part of me
There’s more than you could ever know
Behind the scenes
I’m incomplete and I’m undone
But I suppose like everyone
There’s so much more that’s going on
Behind the scenes
 Kellie Coffey, "I Would Die For That" ~ This song I think every woman dealing with IF has heard or watched on YouTube but just in case I will add it. It is still a beautiful song and video that I still bawl when watching.

 Coldplay, "Fix You" ~ The words are very meaningful and its such a soothing song with hints of overcoming and being fixed emotional for me it reminds me of my husband always being there.
Nickel Creek, "Jealous of the Moon" ~ I was suggested this beautiful song by another instagram infertility sister who lives on the opposite side of our beloved country. The songs lyrics have such a powerful and deep meaning..for me I think the song is saying the girl is stuck in a rut (infertility) and on the verge of giving up or already given up and moving on from her true dream.  She is too afraid to face her feelings/pride or be let down again and he wants her to just ask for help so they can overcome what is facing her together instead of walking around feeling sad and sorry for herself.
Christinna Perri, "A Thousand Years" ~ Last but certainly not least is another favorite that I will hope to play one day when I finally have my own miracle. I have been playing this song way before Bella and Edward stole it for their wedding (jerks) and it means a lot to me.

Now go get your cry on....tomorrow I will lift you up with some happier tunes. And as always thank you for your love and support!
