We all have our ways to help us move through the blues.
Some get together with a friend or friends for support.
Others may put on some music that speaks to their mood.

They listen to the melody and sing along as my mom and
aunties had done. At times my mom would put dancing
music on and throw herself into the rhythm and dance.

Many family gatherings had music and dancing. I thought it
was something all families did. Dance if you are able or move
your body to the rhythm. You may feel better in that moment.


When the blues wash over you
Here’s what you can do
Feel the music - you can choose
To dance away those blues

When you're so down inside
And your worries multiply
Hear a tune in your head
Rise and dance instead

Go ahead and bust a move
The rhythm will carry you
Your soul will come alive
You’ll feel so good inside

The blues you can defy
Dancing is your best ally
The blues will run and hide
You’ll feel so happy inside

When the blues wash over you
Dance away those blues
