“Music is like medicine for the soul.”

Songs that resonates with me in my current season:


“Growing Pains (Reprise)” – Alessia Cara (10.17.19)

What is it about this song that resonates with me?

Owning who are takes courage. Being who you are is bravery.

Lately, I find myself in the growing pains of excising my rights in the face of incivility while withstanding the adverse impact that has come along with it.

This song comforts my pain with the realization that I am still growing into a stronger (and better) version of myself despite the adversity … so I must weather the storm until it ends.

Blog Entry: Cheers to New Beginnings

“Walking Shoes” – Mali Music (8.8.17)

What is it about this song that resonates with me?

A lot of times, we want “it all to make sense” before we move forward to the next chapter in our lives.  We fiend for familiarity.  But sometimes, staying where we are can become more unbearable than the unknown…

“Have Mercy” – Eryn Allen Kane (8.8.17)

“When count all my blessings, my heart still hurts for the world that I know.” – Eryn Allen Kane

What is it about this song that resonates with me?

Speedy transitions is like a tide of waves flooding our lives, mind, and emotions.

No time to think. No time to process.

The only thing we can do is surrender to the waves and allow them to carry us through to the next destination.

This song, “Have Mercy” speaks to my desire to process it all as I settle into Japan.  In one aspect, I am elated about my new opportunity here in Tokyo.  On the other hand, I am grieving everything that I had to give up in exchange…my family, friends, and comforts. I had to immerse myself into a new culture and lifestyle without fully processing that it happened.  This song came across my spotify playlist during my first night in Toyko and I kept it on repeat.

Some may think, “this song is depressing…” I beg to differ. It is actually comforting.  It speaks to my fears as well as my sense of gratitude all at the same time.

“When count all my blessings, my heart still hurts for the world that I know.” – Eryn Allen Kane

Lord, have mercy on me…have mercy on my need to adjust, process, and bless your name for the new beginning you have placed before me. Thank you and amen.
