I woke up this morning singing Bob Marley’s ‘One Love’. I haven’t heard that song in a long time, and no my alarm doesn’t wake me up playing tunes, I just woke up singing. I’m honestly not a morning person, but I always wake up in a good mood, unless someone fouls it up.
I think in a way it helped cheer my daughter up as I started singing to her; she’s been waking up cranky these past few days. She had come into my room as I was making my bed and crawled under my covers; even though I was trying to make my bed I just tucked her in and continued to sing and she smiled at me. I used to sing her to sleep when she was a newborn; she was real colicky and it helped her go back to sleep if I rocked her while singing or humming little melodies.
I believe music helps my mood, depending on which mood I’m in. I listen to classical when I’m writing or studying sometimes. I change the car radio from rock to country, whichever song that I like or know; I often sing along.
I’m going to make it my personal challenge to wake up every morning singing, would you take this challenge with me?
