One thing that I can say I’ve carried with me from all of my significant romantic relationships, bad or good, is music. My entire life has been infused with music and it’s only fitting that my romantic relationships were also. From Foo Fighters and Gillian Flynn to Dave Matthews and Head in the Heart, I’ve walked away from every relationship with a new musical love.
Music soothes my pain and eases my loss as well as elevating the happiness and fondness that I felt with and for someone.
Eventually though, the bad memories start to slip away and are replaced by a sense of comfort and peace. And eventually, I am able to step beyond the anger and grief to find a simple pleasure in remembering what was… remembering the parts of the relationship that made me smile. That still, occasionally, make me smile. These are the parts, the times, that I want to remember.
Music is healing and encompassing. It breaks down barriers and comforts fears. It is what binds us as inhabitants (not just humans, all life forms enjoy music) of this beautiful planet Earth that we live on.
Music is Life… And Love.
So just for a moment… let’s be still…

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen” ~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
