The Ultimate Inspirational Playlist

When you’re going through the valleys of life as a person with aphasia or perhaps a caregiver, an inspirational playlist can be very therapeutic. Music has inspired and given me hope throughout my journey as a wife and caregiver to my husband when I felt I was on the brink of wanting to give up. It’s even helped me release emotions I’ve kept pinned up inside for way too long. And more importantly, finding that perfect song that you can relate to in the most vulnerable moments can help you feel less alone. There’s so much comfort in that. Don’t you think?

Below is a curated playlist from my own personal collection. These songs contain nuggets of wisdom, hope, and inspiration when life throws you the ultimate curveball. Have a listen and enjoy!

SCARS: I AM They

THE WATER: I AM They

(My personal favorite song that carried me through long caretaking days with my husband)

    I love that you did this ! I am still building a playlist on Pandora to play ( and sometimes sing along badly-haha) for my daughter with aphasia. My most recent addition is (They Long To Be) Close to you by the Carpenters. It would be a good one for you and Ryan also. She lives in Johns Creek. I read about you in the AJC. Congrats on what you and Ryan have accomplished! ?? My daughter had speech therapy when she first started losing her speech 3 years ago but as her brain furhter atrophied speech rehab could not help her.
