Songs That Make You Feel Alive

As I was flipping through my planner trying to plan my week, I noticed the quote “It isn’t the great big pleasures that count the most; it’s making a great big deal out of the little ones,” by Jean Webster.

It got me thinking about the little moments that I barely notice as the days pass by.  As I travel through this journey of life, I look back and realize that the things that flew by in my daily life became the things I couldn’t forget.

As I was remembering these amazing moments, I was listening to my Spotify playlists. It occurred to me that music brings back the memories that are sometimes pushed aside. Music truly makes me feel alive. So, I have some songs listed below that make me feel so joyous, blessed, happy to be alive, and ready for all the new adventures to come.

I highly encourage you to listen. It’s a huge list, but worth it to go through. And although it’s long, there are so many more I could add…
