Today, what’s your truth?
I’m getting this together for you as I struggle to keep my eyes open. It’s the middle of the afternoon and I maybe should have done this sooner but this week (last week by the time you read it) has been SO LONG.
Is it me or did last week move so incredibly slow?
The week before was a rough one, as I mentioned here but nothing terrible happened this past week. It just moved at a snails pace and I guess all that slow-moving was draining.
Most of the songs for today were picked out ahead of time but thankfully they’ve made my eyes a little less weary. Over the past couple of month’s, I’ve tried to give these playlists a theme or a concept based on my feelings at the moment. It seemed like a great way to not date the playlists that I’ve been making as well as to give you all a peek inside my mental space for the week.
That route worked fine last week when I voiced my opinions on keeping a positive frame of mind during tough times and when I spoke on being creatively productive. It fit with what I was feeling for today’s post as well.
Still, I don’t want to force a message or a “moral of the story” in order to give some sort of unnecessary deeper meaning to my thoughts or the tunes I connect them to.
I love sharing my music library with you all and I’ll continue to share what’s swirling around in my head alongside it. When I feel like I have a useful story to share that will maybe help someone else in a grander or more intimate way then I’ll title the playlist accordingly.
If I don’t have a message to share for the week I won’t try to BS my way through it. I feel like there are a lot of guru’s popping up on the internet and not all of them offer as much value as they claim to. The last thing I would want to do is promise more than I can deliver or become one of them. With that being said, moving forward general playlists will just be numbered instead of dated.
When you come to this site I want you to feel like you’re having a conversation with a friend who may or may not be miles away, in a different time zone, and across the world. When you’re talking to your friends you don’t beat around the bush or try to be something you’re not. When you talk to them you’ve kicked the filler to the curb and you’re just real. Your truth is cyrstal clear.
So what am I today?
Today, I’m tired and I don’t really know why. This music is helping me stay alert enough to write and it also happens to be perking me up a bit along the way. I hope it perks you up a bit too. That’s the truth and nothing more.
Keep in mind that some of the songs featured in this playlist are relatively new, some are old and from varying music styles. This week scroll on down and give your ears a bit of bliss in the form of ZHU x Skrillex, Kiiara, Izzy Bizu, & Tove Styrke. You can listen to more playlists and all featured artists on Spotify!
