I’m a firm believer in the power of mantras. Repeated affirmations, vision boards, notes on the mirror and favorable fortune cookie fortunes are strewn around my apartment as a daily reminder of the light and blessings that surround me. While there are so many negative messages around us (and often within us) I truly feel that it is imperative that we cloak ourselves with positive energy by any means necessary.
One way I keep negativity at bay is to listen to my theme song. Remember the scene in “I’m Gonna Get You Sucka” when the band followed Slade down the street? Well, that’s the picture I get in my head when I listen to my theme song.
Whenever I’m having a down day or feeling the “mean reds” listening to Mary J. Blige’s “Just Fine” never fails to lift me up! The upbeat tempo, Mary’s energy and the lyrics about knowing that life is just fine and you wouldn’t change it makes me feel like I can conquer the world!
We all have days where things just don’t seem to be going right or it feels like we’re moving in quick sand. It’s on those days when we need to blast our theme music (At FULL Blast!), dance in our seats and let our music mantras put us in a better state of mind.
Because life is just fine and sometimes you need a song to remind you of that.
