I don't like silence...it's too much empty space to give my mind a chance to go off on it's own tangents that can lead down to some disturbing roads --things like, it's tooooo quiet, must be an intruder just outside waiting to crash my door down or a wicked warlock standing on my roof about to crash through the universal portal....or...the oppressive silence must mean my boss is mad at me or my children are definitely doing something they shouldn't--okay, so the last one is usually true but the others, you know, riduculous thoughts that are never true but you can't stop thinking anyway.
In my home life, I've taken my music with me now with my MP3 always in my purse so walks at lunch, filing in the horridly dark and scary back building are more tolerable. Working out is, well, working out so much better now that I have my own tunes versus what they play over the MUSAC or CD's at the fitness place. It's amazing the difference in my heart rate when I use there's or my own, and I get a far better work out.
Now, I'm sure none of this is surprising and you all use music in your own ways--I was simply inspired to write this today because I just bought a new compilation CD with some songs that I LOVE and know will get me movin' and a grovin' and I can't wait to head out to my work-out later today to try them out.
How do you use music in your life and work??
