I want this to be a happy post.
And it’s not my real story. So this playlist isn’t always happy.
It’s my fall playlist.
Fall is harder for me than summer. I love summer. I love the sun. Fall feels more like a fall for me and you might feel it in this music.
The nice thing about this playlist is it is a mix of my end of summer songs (happy) and my moving into fall songs (a little more mellow/sad).
It’s a great string of songs because you get a bit of a mix. I’ve got some favs I’ll share below but what I’ll say about this mix is you can groove easy with it during the crisp temps and cloudy days.
Let’s talk about fall for a minute though.
I dread the darker days. The colder temps. The rain. The impending snow.
I often ask myself, “WHY”? Why am I nervous about winter?
Here’s the thing. Sun makes me happy.
But I’m curious why doesn’t a cloudy day in a coffee shop make me feel the same?
A rainy day in bed under the covers.
A cold walk in the dark at 5pm.
Putting on my winter jacket and boots.
Grabbing some mittens and sledding down a hill.
Picking up some root veggies and a roast, turning on the crock pot and coming home to a deeply satisfying fall meal.
Because these things all sound fun, right?
My answer is really lame.
I don’t like the dark. I don’t like the cold. I don’t like to put on all the clothes just to stay warm.
This mix…it blends a little of both. Sometimes you’ll want to dance. Sometimes you’ll want to snuggle up.
Kinda like how this season of fall feels for me. And coffee always makes it better, so let’s fall there.
A few of my favorites from this playlist:
Blanket- Kayla Diamond
“I love you is all I can say.” Ahhh, this song. The lyrics. “I’ll be you’re blanket” with the melody, + the beat.
THIS SONG IS MY BLANKET.
Dig With Me- Allie Moss
“And I won’t lie to you love”
“I’m not okay”
“I’ve already spent too much time hiding that”
“And that’s one thing that has to change”
YES TIME TO TELL THE TRUTH. ALWAYS!
So Now What- The Shins
“Oh girl, it’s been a while
Since we met, out there in the cold
Seems so long ago
It’s hard to imagine
The lives we used to have”.
LET’S JUST BEGIN AGAIN.
The theme of this playlist is ‘Falling into fall can be hard’. Do what you can to use music to move yourself forward. Maybe with this playlist or another, just move forward. Tell the truth. Don’t hide.
The truth is the beat that fills your heart. Let it speak. Begin again. We need your voice.
