I am going to make it through this year/if it kills me.

This last year was not a good one for me. I'm looking for recommendations for music and mental exercises to move on and make this next year a better one.

So my life took a very frustrating turn this last year, beginning precisely on my birthday. As a result, I had to abandon a relationship I was quite happy with and pick up my life and start over (twice!) in one year. I am professionally back to where I was a year ago and socially trying to build a new groups of friends.
With my birthday coming up soon, I am approaching it with a weird mix of fear and relief. I want to just cleanse my mind and go forward with the thought that "Well, next year can't be any worse." What writing or mental exercises can I undertake to acknowledge this last year, but also get ready to dust myself off and move on? What music should I be playing to inspire and psyche myself up for a new year? (I have been playing This Year
a lot in the past couple days, which is a good start, but I need more.)
