Earlier this week I created a playlist of songs that make me happy, feel empowered and upbeat. They all have a pretty good tempo – no slow songs even though they can be great too. I wanted songs that would make me happy and want to dance around my studio.
There are simply times when we need something to turn to for that quick pick-me-up…
I had such a good time working on this! It also brought me back to my high school and college days when my friends would create “break up playlists” – those songs that made you feel better about yourself after a breakup… but that’s NOT what this is about.
These songs are about finding, claiming and owning your power with no excuses. Here is what I have on my playlist – do you have any others you think I should add?
Brave, by Sara Sara Bareilles
Roar, by Katy Perry
Defying Gravity, from the musical Wicked
True to Your Heart, from the Disney Movie Mulan
One Hot Mama, by Trace Adkins
(come on! you know you’ve had those self-doubt days where this song would be perfect… if you are a girl of course. 🙂 )
Firework, by Katy Perry
Brighter Than the Sun, by Colbie Caillat
Wide Awake, by Katy Perry
Unwritten, by Natasha Bedingfield
Girl on Fire, by Alicia Keys
Bulletproof (by LaRoux), from The Outfit
What would YOU add?
Here’s to your creative and EMPOWERED success!
