A Hopeful Break-Up Playlist

To borrow a fairly crappy joke from my dear friend Mary, the forecast for Spring break-up this year is a bleak one. (Break-up is a term we use in AK in the spring when all the ice is melting and chunks of snow are flying all over the place…hence- break-up. Hopefully my explanation didn’t ruin the joke!)

Anyway, if you, my dear reader, are anything like me, you experience life through the lens of many emotional high highs and low lows. I have always been one to channel my emotions through music, but this can sometimes be dangerous- I listened to one very bitter song about 100 times on repeat before realizing this song wasn’t helping me move on, it was only making me more upset and causing me to stay in my funk longer. Haha, who am I kidding, I know I’ll listen to my angry song again. It’s a great song (if you must know, it’s Peter Pan by Kelsea Ballerini). But, when you want to try and be good for a while, here are some of my favorite breakup songs- about moving on, loving yourself, and trusting in the beautiful future God has in store for you.

If you would like to listen to this playlist on Spotify, I’ve somehow managed to be a technology wizard and have placed a handy-dandy link in this post!
