This is my lovely guitar. I haven't played it in a while and couldn't since surgery as have to be careful with my left arm...BUT! Spoke to my lovely breast care Nurse who said to go for it as long as it feels ok yay! Have to put music to my new tunes so can't wait for a little jam woop! Love love love it :-) Music is just the best!
I knew that music would be an important outlet for me at this time. It always has been but most certainly in times of heightened emotions and challenging times in life. Even just writing down words can improve your mood when you need to vent and don't want to talk to anyone else at that moment. Another way is a good cry when you need to but I have been doing both of these things simultaneously!!
Whatever works for you works for you so try to find something that will help in times of, well, not to put too dramatic a point on it but, despair. You're never alone, I promise you.
