The human heart was—and remains—a mystery to me. But I’m learning. I have to. —Anthony Bourdain

I think you should listen to Florence and the Machine’s “Shake it Out” today

I think for the two moods of not wanting to get out of bed, and the other of getting ready for an amazing day, Florence and the Machine has songs for both. For today though we are here to listen to Shake it Out because of these lyrics:

Cause I am done with my graceless heart

So tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart

‘Cause I like to keep my issues strong

It’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out

Shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa

It can be quite morbid if you think about it because they’re saying that they will cut out their heart, but for me it’s a jolt to the senses for a brand new start.

(I swear I didn’t mean for that to rhyme)

That melody, it just feels cathartic to me. So start your day with a get up and get things done attitude with Florence and the Machine song, because you deserve it. It may be a dark start but the sun is here to wake you up to a new beginning.
