A Soundtrack Saves the Day

Last night my husband and I set off to drive to my parent’s house for Easter. It was Friday night and we both had a tough week. It was already after 5 :00 when the car was packed and we were backing out of the driveway. We were hungry and cranky as we sped down the rainy road.

I decided to put on our favorite Spotify mix to try to pick up the mood. Right when I was getting into a song and about to show off my first dance moves, my husband said, “ugh change it, I hate this song’s ending.”

“Ooook.” I said.

Then I suggested that we stop at 5 Guys for a quick burger. This will definitely lift our spirits! It was delicious, but unfortunately we left with full bellies that made us even more tired. Two and a half more hours? Sigh

Then I had another idea.

“Can you put on The Greatest Showman” soundtrack?” I asked.

Not even 2 minutes passed before we were both singing at the top of our lungs, smiling, laughing, and completely happy. It took us a few tries, but we finally found what we needed.

  1. I love that you persevered in changing the mood of your drive. I think all of us needed a little perseverance at some point or another during this challenge. Great ending post and line, ” It took us a few tries, but we finally found what we needed.”


  2. Music is the best for changing moods. I have got to check out that soundtrack and the movie, too. I keep hearing about it. Have fun this weekend and congratulations on completing the challenge!
