Rarely is there a day goes by that Old Dominion’s “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart” isn’t played on the radio. (At least I hear it almost every day.) Every time the track plays, I feel like they are singing right to me.
What songs out there grab you this way?
There are so many positive elements to this song that I don’t know if I could effectively convey its power in one post so I’m going to just give the chorus some attention here.

Your Sound Track for 2017 via Daily Prompt: Hopeful
Every major motion picture has its official soundtrack. Professional baseball players have their warm-up song that blasts through the stadiums as they step up to the plate.

Newly weds share a first dance to that one song that sings the story of their love.
There is something special about music and its role in our lives. There are certain songs that transport us back to the moments when our lives were defined by the music that accompanied the experience.
In 2017 I encourage you to make a sound track of your life or find your playlist for success.

I want you to find the music that moves you too. Arrange the soundtrack for getting you through toughest challenges. Continue reading “Your Sound Track for 2017”
