I Lived” by One Republic

Why did you pick this song? What does it do for you?

This song energizes me and reminds me of spending time walking/hiking with my good friend Linda, who just retired from our company. The song reminds me of all good things in life and to embrace each moment/day!

Anything else you want to say?

I love how music can transport you to happy times. I also love disco music. Every time I hear a song from that era, especially from The Bee Gees and Abba , my soul just sings with happiness. Pretty cool to find 2-3 minutes of pure joy during an otherwise crummy commute in the car!


We put our bodies on a diet. Why not our brains? This is the motivation for our optimism playlist.

Here’s proof that optimism rules. That it’s good for business. And music, of course, improves health and well being
