You’ve Got the Music in You

What are five things you can’t live without?

One of my answers to this question was: music. Now music is important to lots of people, but until that answer popped into my head, I hadn’t realized precisely how important it was to me, and I’ve made a point of listening more often.

Websites like Pandora and let you find music that you never would have known you might like. Instead of passively taking in music that others have chosen, you have the power to actively select the music you like.

As I’ve looked for just the right mix of music to listen to, I’ve learned about how to use music as a soundtrack for the day, and created a motivational music playlist at youtube.
