Susan’s Playlists May 18 – 21, 2015 ~ Kind Without Caving

kind without caving BB_King_onstage_(Toronto,_2007)The first time I typed this, it came out “Kind Without Caring” ~ which is the perfect typo for this week’s focus, if you ask me. It’s so easy to be strong without softness, to be soft and doormat-y or kind without really caring. Every relationship, every moment requires a different cocktail of strength and softness. And this applies to my relationship with myself, too. As always, I’d love to hear how your balance of kind without CAVING is happening…or not.

Below are all the playlists from the week. Go to Spotify and follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists there, too. I love seeing more and more people following and listening wherever you are! If you’re having trouble getting the site to work, please let me know ~ I’m learning some tricks and I’d love to figure it out with you. Just so you know, if you are using the Spotify app for mobile devices, the program inserts “recommended” music that is not on my original playlist. Please note also that Spotify doesn’t have all the music I have, so sometimes I’ll put up a different version of a song or skip it all together. EnJOY, everyBody!

Before the playlists, some announce-y type things:

NEW CLASS TIME ON TUESDAY & THURSDAY DOWNTOWN STARTS JUNE 2! ~ Next week is the last week on Tuesday and Thursday at 9am. Set your alarm! Mark your calendar!
