WOW! SIX. WHOLE. MONTHS. I am so grateful for this moment. To finally say I am only a couple weeks away from finishing my internship is one of the greatest blessings and moments for me to date in life. I am so humbled and grateful to the team at Piedmont for helping me grow and thrive as a new music therapy candidate. As things come to a close here, I have been able to reflect on how much music has been such a big part of the last six months for me. I have used it daily, have gotten stronger as a singer and instrumentalist, acquired new skills on new instruments, and grown so much personally and professionally. Having the music as the focus in both areas really strengthened me and allowed me to push myself to new levels. For my final contribution to the blog, I would like to share a playlist of songs that have pushed me through this time as an intern. There are songs that evoke emotions, songs to dance to, songs I used in sessions and songs that reflect on how thankful I was through all this and still remain. I look forward to all the things that 2022 has to offer, and I appreciate the community around PMT for allowing me to make my mark on this place and your families. Please enjoy my playlist, and comment below a few song selections that pump you up, or get you in the spirit of achieving and overcoming!
