Tuesday Tunesday: Keep Breathing

328. Three. Two. Eight. Three hundred and twenty-eight. That’s the number of times (give or take) I’ve played Ingrid Michaelson’s “Keep Breathing” (Be Ok, 2008). First heard on Grey’s Anatomy when Cristina realizes Burke not only called off the wedding, but also left her for good (Season 3, Episode 25 “Didn’t We Almost Have it All?“), this seems to be my go-to song, especially when it feels like the world is falling apart. Whether you’re feeling anxious, depressed, moved to act, but paralyzed by fear, Michaelson’s lyrics beautifully and soothingly remind us that “all we can do is keep breathing.” She inspires us to breathe, calm ourselves, and take life one step at a time. Sometimes that’s all you can do, and that’s more than enough. What are you listening to? Comment below!
