Can Positive Lyrics Create Positive Thoughts?

Free Positive Thoughts

Several days ago the positive thoughts I had been enjoying were rudely disrupted by an email that aroused my anger. It was from a company representative who obviously had not read and comprehended every previous correspondence I had sent.

Or did she choose to ignore them because she didn’t want to give me a refund?

Maybe she’s on commission?

Or does the company that employs her use an intentionally misleading slogan “…our goal is to exceed your expectations”?

Let me tell you, not only were my expectations not exceeded…They came a long way from being met!

Because of that company’s lack of customer service, this blog was unavailable for 2 days before Thanksgiving. When I paid online, I expected to receive clear instructions of what to do next. But all I got was an email receipt saying that if I had questions to go to their online support address.

Can you believe it? They didn’t even send me a friendly welcome!

The only clear instruction I could find in their online support was to change the DNS, so I did that. Later I discovered that instead of seeing my blog, visitors would see the page this company had put up which mainly advertised their hosting service.

They were getting free advertising while my blog was unavailable! So why should they be in any hurry?

Then when I alerted them that my blog was unavailable, they asked me to re-submit the information I had already given them!

So I knew my blog might be unavailable for a lot longer, especially with the Thanksgiving holiday.

Reflecting on the fact that no clear instructions were given when I paid, I began thinking this was not the type of company I want hosting my blog. But I didn’t want to make a hasty judgment, and Thanksgiving was the next day. I really did want this to work out.

Finally I decided that it didn’t make sense to do business with a company that didn’t live up to what they lead customers to believe about them. So I requested a refund…in a very nice way, even giving them valuable feedback!

As I mentioned in the beginning of this story, my day was rudely disrupted. All day I had been hearing James Twyman singing in my head “I will become what I believe myself to be when I believe I can be anything.” (from his song ‘The Cost of Love’) And I was feeling good.

And then that email got me so angry. I quickly wrote a reply, still feeling very upset. After I got that out of the way, I acknowledged that I was angry. That’s something I learned from Esther and Jerry Hicks when I read their book ‘Ask and It Is Given.’

I didn’t enjoy feeling angry, and I wanted to get out of that state, so I thought to myself, “What’s a happy song I can sing in my head?”

The one that came to me right away was my song ‘This Sunny Day,’ even though I had not seen much sun for the last week or so.

Here are some of the positive lyrics:

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

“I am feelin’ down and I don’t like to feel this way.
So I go outside and watch the children laugh and play.

Sunny day, sunny day. The sky’s so blue.
Sunny day, sunny day brings happiness to you.
Refreshing breeze, chase my blues away.
Bring me joy today!”


~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Not long after I sung that song in my head, my mood changed to positive thoughts.
So if it worked for me, don’t you think it might work for you?

Next time you’re angry, think of a song that makes you happy. Let it play in your head.

And so that you’ll be ready when you get upset, why not make a little list of songs that make you happy?

Till next time…

Wishing you peace, love and happiness,

    Hi Latief! Thanks for commenting! I read your article. It’s very good and I see you have lots of comments, so that’s great. I just added my comment there.

    Actually, I find that singing any upbeat song whatever the lyrics makes me happy. It’s the tune, the rhythm, more than the words that puts a smile on my face and a lilt in my step. I have this habit now whenever I’m out walking that I sing the same song repeatedly the whole time. It makes me feel cheerful and lively through the whole walk.

  4. Joyce Says:

    Thank you for your cheerful comment, nothingprofound! Keep singing those happy songs!

  5. Craft Shows Says:

    Great site. I like the way you explain everything without using complicated terms.

  6. Necklaces & Ties Says:

    Dear Joyce! Thanks for sharing this experience with us. Anger is such an unhealthy and dangerous feeling to keep it inside. Releasing it with a song is not only positive but also powerful. I usually dance when I am feeling angry or sad. The movements of my body and the music give me the healing I need so much.

  7. Joyce Says:

    Thank you for the compliment, Craft Shows! I like to keep things simple.

  8. Joyce Says:

    Dear Necklaces and Ties, I appreciate your comments. I’m glad you mentioned dancing…such a great way to get good vibes going!

  9. James Daniels@furnace filters outlet Says:

    Affirmations are positive statements of a desired outcome or goal. They are usually short, believable and focused. By repeating them over and over again, you build inroads into your subconscious mind, opening up the possibility of a new state of thoughts.

  10. Daniel Walton@Free iPhones Says:

    Altering a belief comes easy when you know how to alter them. Think about a past positive emotion where you really felt alive, think of the future outcome you want to happen for you while feeling that positive emotion, then confirm that you may now have that happen and let it go.

  11. George@Construction Accident Lawyer Says:

    if you don’t like what you hear when your mind talks to you, you can use positive self-talk to change the message and push your inner voice in a positive direction. You can make your life as positive as you want.

  12. Bob Lipply@tampa homes Says:

    That is true. Songs (especially those that we truly love and have inspiring and uplifting lyrics) can make us all calm down when we are extremely upset or lonely about something.

  13. Joyce Says:

    Thanks for agreeing with me, Bob!
