Transform Your Mood

 

As the holidays approach, many of us start to feel tension taking over; as we look upon the lists of all we have to do and buy. This can make our mood deteriorate to the point of resembling the “Grinch” or “Scrooge.

Often, we can’t just think our way out of a certain mood; we have to feel our way out.

One way to lift us up and transform our current state of mind is through music. Listening to heartwarming songs is a great way to reduce our stress, and regain our calm.

One such heartening song is entitled, Grown-Up Christmas List, sung by Amy Grant. It is sure to add more beauty and impact to the season.

Grown-Up Christmas List Lyrics

Do you remember me?
I sat upon your knee,
I wrote to you
With childhood fantasies.

Well, I’m all grown-up now,
And still need help somehow.
I’m not a child,
But my heart still can dream.

So here’s my life-long wish,
My grown-up Christmas list.
Not for myself,
But for a world in need.

(Chorus)

No more lives torn apart,
That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts.
And everyone would have a friend,
And right would always win,

And love would never end.
This is my grown-up Christmas list.

As children we believed
The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely
Wrapped beneath our tree.

Well Heaven surely knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal
A hurting human soul.

(Chorus)

No more lives torn apart,
That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts.
And everyone would have a friend,
And right would always win,
And love would never end.
This is my grown-up Christmas list.

This is my only life-long wish.
This is my grown-up Christmas list.
