Happy Day 24: Stuck in My Head

Part of me thinks this all started with a song. My change of spirit and need for happiness.

I love music. I have to listen to it all the time. (And the louder the better!) :O) But music has a big impact on my attitude and I'm so affected by my surroundings that I can go from mood to mood with a switch of a song on the radio. Are you that way?? If I hear a song about a homeless child I'm ready to go home and sell everything we own to help somehow. ...Which is why I have to be careful about which songs I listen to. :O)

A while back I heard a song, I can't even remember where, and melodically it was just hauntingly beautiful, one of the best I've ever heard. However, the lyrics were not at all good, the kind of song I would usually shut off immediately because my heart is so offended by it. But for some reason I didn't, and I kept listening to it. And it made me angry and it made me feel kind of dark, but I kept listening to it, over and over because it was so beautiful and addicting. I think it created a little piece of darkness in my heart that got a proverbial ball rolling until one day I was like: "wait, what am I doing again??"

I've long left that song behind. I've replaced it with songs much less melodically beautiful, but with much more beautiful feelings in their wake. The song above is one that I just recently discovered, it's called "Oceans" by Hillsong United and it is lovely!

Songs like this really help me stay positive and happy. It helps my mind and heart stay focused on God and that really is...the only thing that truly makes me happy.  :O)

Happy Sunday!

  1. Music is a huge influence on my life too! It is something that is hard to express for me, I just feel it! So happy to see when other's love it as much as me. There is just something about certain songs that touch me, make me want to dance or inspire me to do something!

  2. hi Disney! I so strongly agree with you! I've got a lot going on in my life just now & I made the conscious decision to change to the Christian radio station. I need a lot of support & positivity right now! Those messages really help lift me up through the day. thanks!

  3. when king saul was going insane, God used david's music to soothe his soul! i'm often reminded of that when i get in a funk, but then i reluctantly put on some edifying tunes and feel a bajillion times better.
    ps: i'm a long time lurker, but i don't think i've ever commented. hi!

  4. I love that song too! Thanks for posting it because I didn't know the name. :)

  5. I love music! My favorite happy music group right now is The Piano Guys. They are awesome! Thanks for all the happy you are sharing Disney!

  6. Love that song! Sang it at church this week & it was amazing! Music is so powerful!

  7. I am just LOVING that song too, sounds like angels singing it to me, soothes the soul! Keep up the happy work, it's awesome!!

  8. Disney, music has such an influence on one's life. I listen to the Christian stations on Pandora and can choose which artist I want to listen to. It is great!

  9. Amen sister! The Lord is the only true sense of joy we experience! I love Hillsong!❤

  10. Love Oceans ... we are getting ready to use it at our church!

  11. Yes, that is so true. This is one of my favorite songs right now. When I'm working in the studio I normally have secular (like Maroon5) music to pep me up and keep me energized...but it would probably help my mood more to focus on more inspirational music to keep me going.
