I’ve been listening to music before work a lot more in the last few weeks. I usually listen to news radio so I can find out what’s going on, but let’s be honest, that’s a pretty depressing way to start your day.

So lately I’ve been listening to music. And I’ve taken it a step further: I’ve become one of those people with headphones on while I walk into the office…I know…not the most social thing to do, but who needs awkward elevator interaction anyway?
Anyhow, I’ve realized that walking into the office while listening to music I really enjoy is a much better way to get my day started. So I think from now on I’ll go through the routine of opening up the office, and turning on lights and computers, with the accompaniment of good tunes.
Who needs social interaction anyhow.
Just in case you’re curious, my morning routine lately has included this song:
Mostly for the following lyrics:
But I will hold on hope
And I won’t let you choke
On the noose around your neck
And I’ll find strength in pain
and I will change my ways
I’ll know my name as it’s called again
So come out of your cave walking on your hands
And see the world hanging upside down
You can understand dependence
When you know the maker’s hand
So make your siren’s call
And sing all you want
I will not hear what you have to say
Cause I need freedom now
And I need to know how
To live my life as it’s meant to be
I find it motivational. I really, really like the line “you can understand dependence when you know the maker’s hand.” It strikes a chord, and in a nerdy way, I wanna delve deeper into the meaning of it. Anyone with me?
Happy Tuesday everyone.
