I’m Happier When . . .


I’m singing and dancing in the shower

In fact, I’m happier when music is playing, period. I know I’m not alone in this sentiment, I can’t be. Music is universal. The right song can take me out of a funk within seconds.

My very old green apple iPod mini – all dirty and beaten up, serves as my bathroom boombox and is essential in keeping my spirits light rather than serious …especially when getting ready for work in the morning. I carry my JBL Speaker donutback and forth from my office to the bathroom like a kid carrying his blanky on a pretty regular basis.

    My ipod is my best friend when getting ready for work in the morning, too 🙂 The music raises my mood and motivation.

    I like that donut thing – never seen one like it.

    Music is essential, I agree.

    My husband gets up later than me…and since I like him just a little still, I can’t blare my music like I like. Until I realized that I can wear my headphones. AND then I can still hear it when I’m blow drying my hair. Problem solved.

    I have that exact same GREEN iPod mini and I totally loved it. I know have an iPhone, but miss that iPod! Thanks for the idea on how to still get some use out of it.

    I have the same iPod (in pink though) and the same JBL speaker. I use it when I have people over and need some background music.

    Oh I feel ya! Music has that power… but it can be positive or negative! There are some songs I simply can’t let myself listen to because it’ll make me depressed… seriously.

    That song came on as my husband and I were getting ready for his birthday dinner tonight. Woop! I love music. It really does help shape my moods.

    I have exactly the same ipod, it’s all beaten up & it still has the music I put on it for a trip overseas in 2005, I can’t bring myself to change the music as it reminds me of fun times!

    So true. Music is the universal love language. I firmly believe that. LOVE your blog!

    I Love having music in the bathroom while I shower. I bought a little speaker for my ipod to make it possible. Shower singing and dancing is the best, although the dancing can be dangerous in my shower over tub combo. bleh.

    Music is a necessity- all kinds! I especially listen to it when I am by myself. Whether it’s blaring loud or something calming, I need a little bit of noise. It’s soothing!

    I can’t live without my ipod or music, my life would be a mess without it. I was just talking about that on my blog yesterday. You should check it out.

    I am a funky spelled Meg too (Meghaun) and I also almost always shower and get ready with music. Can’t live without it.

    Gotta have music. All kinds.
    A co-worker complained that my music distracted her and she couldn’t work. Mind you I wasn’t blasting metal or rap. Just nice, quiet good to work to music.

    She got moved to an office with a door.

    Love your blog!
