Moments of inspiration come at the most random times, this one came to me Monday morning in my shower (I actually do my best thinking, and reflect the most in there) after a busy Pride weekend, as I was feeling down on myself. I turned on some Rihanna, not sure why to be honest, and while I was showering “Love the Way You Lie” came on and it triggered an idea for this mix and the next one.

music-is-the-medicine-of-the-breaking-heart-quote-1I’ve always had a playlist of songs that I turn on after I’ve been dumped, rejected or feeling broken and at my lowest. Hell we all need a good cry now and then, This mix is a bunch of songs that come from that playlist, and should help with heartache like it has mine the countless number of times. Music speaks to my heart in a way my brain doesn’t. For as many times as I’ve been dumped and/or rejected music does something to ease the pain. Maybe it’s the fact that artists are the ones writing these songs that resonate with me, and it’s the comfort that I’m not alone in going through the same pain.

The next mix will be about moving on from this heartbreak.
