Music is essential to happiness… Ms. Trina Logan

Music is essential to the happiness and even the daily routine of so many. Daily my son and I have music blasting in our home. We listen to some of everything. He comes in my room often dancing and singing to these new artists that I’m not particularly fond of, but I listen to in order to learn him. (He is going to KILL ME….. well not anymore because the video didn’t post…)

Music provides nostalgia; helping us remember….memories. My mom listened to Anita Baker and Stevie when I was young and when I hear some of those songs, it takes me back to my pink canopy bed, my strawberry short cake kitchen set, and my cabbage patch kids; Sharon Jean and Nelson. They were twins. They wore blue velvet outfits. They had brown hair. I placed them on my bed daily and took very great care of them. I remember the names because my moms first name is also Sharon and my late aunts name is Jean. I loved those dolls. I remember the kitchen set being placed in the hall closet. It was right when you walked into our apartment. We lived in Woodsong. 5571A Apt. G; Orcutt Avenue.

Those were times that I was happy. Playing with my dolls, always making sure my room was clean, and even having my own music playing. Music has been a huge part of my life.

Music is something that our guest today says is her happy place….

Today we have Trina. Trina is probably one of the most selfless, confident, valiant women I know. My first encounter with her was our freshmen year at North Carolina A&T State University. It was so interesting how we connected. We were so much (and still are) alike, but so different. I preferred sweats and video games and she preferred high heels and using her voice to write for our school paper. Trina was never scared to be herself. To me she has always found peace in being herself. Over the years, I haven’t had a chance to be with her physical, but we talk constantly. I admire her so much. She always reaches out to me and has been very consistent with it!

A few weeks back, Trina has to be admitted to the hospital. She FaceTimed me and we talked for over two hours and even while being hooked up to so many machines, admitting herself, being there alone, she wanted to know how my life was going. She does this often. She sends me messages asking me to share what’s going on.

She always wants to help others and is constantly being that vivid, affectionate,noble person even when she has not been her full 100 percent self.

If you do not have a Trina in your life, you need one. She encourages while you don’t even know that she is down. She listens even when she is feeling tired. There is not doubt that she does not embrace happiness and is truly fulfilled despite her current situation.

I am honored to have her in my life. I am honored that she remembers special dates and always sends texts to congratulate Anthony on things. Ha! I remember when Anthony visited her moms house when we were in Atlanta years and years ago. I remember when we went to Olive Garden on a double date back in college…🤣

What’s good beautiful people! My name is Trina Logan and I’m here to share with you from personal experience, answers in regards to my happy place.

My happy place is with music!

Now some may say it’s with religion, or with their spouse, career or with finances. But music has been the one thing that can alter my mood. When I want to praise god, I listen to music. when I make love to my man, I listen to music. When I’m breaking up or arguing with my man, I listen to music as well lol. When I get dressed to start my day or night, I listen to music.

I found my happy place in music due to my childhood.

I remember in Philly going to see “Purple Rain” and dancing in the theater. I had no business in there that young but I had young parents. Lol Then when they split up, I used to listen to them drown out their issues to Anita Baker, Luther Vandross and more. So I guess you can say I was subliminally taught to transcend to my happy place through music.

The challenges in life that forces me their were bad my mom trying to raise me as a single parent. Sometimes I saw, heard and experienced things that I shouldn’t have. So I would cut on BET or MTV and just blast music. Or I would record music off the radio stations and make homemade mixtapes. As I got older, I experienced verbal and physical abuse from different people in different ways, so music and my diary because my best friends.

If you are trying to find your happy place, look for yourself. Don’t let anyone tell you what your happy place should be, because it’s yours! You get one life to live. It can be something strange. Your happy place could be as simple as visiting your godkids, going to Bojangles in Saturday’s, or playing basketball with your son/daughter. I mean wherever you find your happy place, make it yours and go there often!

To be fulfilled in life means to keep positive energy. I can get mad at bills, people, social media, my financial situation, etc.. But, in the end, I have to come back to God, humble myself and keep positive energy. Positive energy will help me make a conscious decision on how to handle all situations. Panicking with negative every is what drives people to life altering decisions.

This is my two cents. I hope that my honesty is received well. May everyone be blessed.
