Let’s talk about music. There are dozens of genres of music and, within each genre, there are subgenres. Each of these subgenres provoke a certain emotion within us, which is why we are able to create super specific playlists for each of the emotions we feel. I currently have 124 playlists that I have created, each catered to a specific mood or emotion I may feel. I have playlists for when I am feeling happy and relieved, playlists for when I am laying in bed crying about a boy or girl, and also playlists for when I am feeling nostalgic and reminiscent. Having playlists for every mood is wonderful because it gives us an outlet to either bask in that mood or  change it. So, here are some playlists for any mood you may be in.
