211. The Magnificence of Music

This past Sunday morning I awoke with a case of the blahs, not really depressed or anxious, but just flat. That all changed because of the magnificence of music.

The praise and worship music at the church service I attended was not an artistic masterpiece but it was moving nevertheless, and the blahs departed from me. Then that evening I went to a Robin Mark concert, which was both an artistic masterpiece and moving beyond description. I came home that evening 180 degrees from where I started in the morning.

I encourage you, don’t dismiss the magnificence of music when it comes to bringing a fresh touch to your emotions, a balm for your mind, and a tampering down of your will. Make it a part of every day. Praise and worship music, classical music, a little Johnny Cash, and Andy Williams all fit the bill.

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
