I love listening to music. I love the feelings it gives, the emotions it instills, and often the encouragement it provides. There are few other ways to get your day started as exciting as listening to a few of your favorite tunes. Sometimes I get so caught up in what I’m doing and the work I’m involved in I completely forget to turn on my music for the day. I’ll make it almost the entire day before realizing that I’ve neglected to listen any music at all. And it feels different. Yes, I know there are times when the quiet is a pleasant reprieve from daily life and sometimes the concentration provided by no distractions is unmatched. But there are many days where a little music would lighten the mood and put a smile on your face while you work.

So, as I’m doing this morning I also encourage you to do. Turn it up!
