CANCER WARRIOR PLAYLIST
Change your music and you can change your mind.
Change your mind and you will change your world!
If you know me, you know I love my music. We have Sonos in the house so our music follows wherever we go, and it’s playing all the time. Spotify, Amazon Music, Pandora, Apple Music makes music ubiquitous in our lives and across our devices.
When I decided to become a Christian 18 years ago, the first thing I changed was my music. While Christian music wasn’t the BEST quality music, it’s message cleared my head and changed my interior monologue. I replaced Eminem’s words with Third Day’s words and saw my spirit lighten. It was part of the threshing that needed to happen for me to make a change in my life.
Music Therapy is a real thing and for a cancer patient, it can take on a particularly powerful role. For me, it is a place of refuge during treatments and inspiration when I need a kick in the butt. Cancer can take your spirit to some dark places and I knew if I could change my input, then I could control my attitude more effectively.
This playlist is not a Christian playlist by any measure. It’s a playlist of a fighter. It’s a playlist for someone that needs to push out the stinking thinking and focus on winning the day. Yeah, there might be a little praise in there, but everyone can use a soupçon of good news in their lives. (Fair warning- there might be a few NSFW songs as well… Spotify has a setting that will automatically skip songs with explicit lyrics.)
Let me know if I’ve missed anything and I will be happy to add it.
