Even sorrow can taste sweet sometimes. Some of my strongest, most passionate emotions happen to manifest negatively, but – when I’m lucky – I can see this intensity as vibrancy.
If I catch myself in the right moment, I can properly acknowledge my emotions and admit that it can feel good to go a little mad. There is something beautiful to be found in a person who is erratic and unpredictable. In these moments I feel empowered – like I’m just manic enough to face the day.
Just thought I would share a few songs (listed in no particular order) that help validate my own feelings of insanity. These songs are best enjoyed when driving fast at night or aggressively parading into work.
1. “Some Nights (Intro)” by Fun.
2. “Madness” by Muse
3. “Broadripple is Burning” by Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s
4. “Sail” by AWOLNATION
5. “Beware the Dog” by The Griswolds
