YouTube music videos can make you smile

YouTube music videos can make you smile

Music soothes the savage beast.

Have you ever just had a song pop into your head?  I’m sure many of you have.  Does it come out of nowhere, or is it the result of something someone said or something you saw?

For me, it’s both.  Usually, it comes from something I’ve read on Facebook.  It will spark some song lyrics in my brain, and I often search for the song on YouTube and post it as a response to what the other person had posted.

I was recently on my way to a Toastmaster’s meeting where I need to be on top of my game.  I was listening to the radio and a sad song came on.  I flipped the channel.  I sure didn’t want to be getting all bummed out before my meeting.  You see music can affect your mood.

I choose to listen to Contemporary Christian Music most of the time {His Radio or SpiritFM}.  Sometimes I’ll switch it to Country {QDR&onlyQDR}.  I pretty much keep it there.  I’m over the “oldies” and I totally don’t do “rap.”

I definitely use music to help my mood, and the mood of others.  I have one friend that I often swap songs with.  She’ll post something that reminds me of a song, then the song I post reminds her of another song.  Back and forth we go, for a few minutes, just posting song videos on Facebook.  It’s fun!  Way better than posting bathroom mirror pictures – grin.

Why am I rambling on about posting music videos on Facebook?  Believe it or not, you can make your friends smile by posting music.  Music isn’t the only thing you can post.  If a friend is having a down day, try to lift their spirits by posting

  • An encouraging song
  • A silly picture
  • A funny story
  • Sometimes just those silly emoticons will do the trick.

You may never know how some small thing you post on Facebook can improve the mood of someone on your page.

Give it a try!  You can post encouraging things to MY page… NewDirection Life Coaching.  That’s what “friends” are for, right?

My husband and I were driving home the other night, and he caught me singing away to the radio – teehee… Great music for a warm summer night.
