Music moves us in ways that nothing else can. Even in those early stages of recovery when your body is still adjusting to the medication and you feel numb all over, music can tickle the soul and reignite your sense of hope. What kind of music speaks to you right now? Is it the heartache and authenticity of the blues? The foot moving sounds of a Mamba or the memory provoking lyrics of a love song? Turn on some music and let yourself experience the escape and inspiration of letting someone else speak the language of your soul.
