Playlist: Songs that Helped Me Move

Not that anyone asked but I made the decision to move across the country and to make some strides towards some personal goals. Don’t know if any of you have done it before but it’s exciting, nerve racking and challenging all at once. In a pandemic, I felt all those emotions and then some. I was away from pretty much everything I’ve known for years (neighbourhood, family, friends) and basically hit the reset button on life. During times like this when I’m making big life decisions, I personally gravitate to music to help me adapt to changes. Here’s a playlist of some of the songs that got me through this new experience. If you play the playlist in its original song order, you’ll really get a feel for the real life highs and lows that I went through while making a new home in unfamiliar territory. Hope you enjoy it!
