Last month I shared my YouTube playlist of favorite Christmas songs, so I thought today it would be fun to share with you a list of my all-time favorite songs. In keeping with yesterday's post about self-love and being an all-powerful goddess of badassery, this playlist is a list of songs that I listen to when I need an emotional pick-me-up, when I'm feeling down about myself or life in general, and/or when I'm writing my book heroines. These songs touch the weakest places in my soul, they take all the little crumbled bits of my heart and pile them up, they glue over the cracks in my spirit. They make me believe, even if for just a moment, the hope is alive and that everything I ever wanted to be is still just around the corner.
They make me believe, even if in the most cynical of ways, that there is a light at the end of my tunnel - and that maybe, just maybe, it isn't a train.
I call them my Power Songs; I probably listen to this playlist several times a week - sometimes, several times a day - and they never fail to pull me out of the pit and back into the sunshine. So, without further ado:
10 Songs To Remind You of Your Own Power
1.) Warrior, by Demi Lovato
