January 2017 is the month and year that I turn 25. I have shockingly managed to keep myself alive up until this point As I reach this milestone age, I cannot help but be nostalgic about my life. I have 27 days until my birthday and it’s really hitting me how cool life continues to be day after day. I figured I would take this reminiscent moment in time and channel it into a playlist for y’all.
I dug through my brain to think of the songs that shaped my upbringing. These are the songs I danced around my childhood home to, cried both happy and sad tears to, performed at yearly talent shows , belted at the top of my lungs once I got my license, and all around brought a smile to my face. I WAS NOT PREPARED TO GET THIS EMOTIONAL OVER A PLAYLIST. I immediately realized I have a specific memory attached to pretty much every song on this playlist. These songs have gotten me to where I am today and I have to say, I’m pretty damn proud of where I am in life.
I hope this inspires you to reconnect with the music that you grew up listening to, no matter how embarrassing, no matter what age you are. It was a cathartic moment I didn’t even know I needed to experience. Enjoy the random array of songs that helped raise me.
**PLEASE COMMENT THE SONGS THAT HAVE SHAPED YOUR LIFE. I WOULD LOVE TO SHARE THIS MOMENT WITH ALL OF YOU**
Cheers to 2017, my 25th journey around the sun, and a trip down memory lane!
