I’m a huge fan of music and I like a variety of different kinds. I love it when they have some kind of inspirational message, even if it’s only a sentence or two that makes me want to do better or conquer something. I have been a quote girl for most of my life and at college I had sticky notes all over my wall and by my bed with quotes that motivated me or just made me feel better when I had a problem. There are so many things that can affect us in our lives and we each draw from different places to overcome them. But it never hurts to have a fun little reminder to help us out!
I don’t relate with the entire song but this part of Uptown Funk is my favorite! There are always people that will tell you that you can’t do or accomplish something and there have been times in my life where I haven’t gone forward because of people’s comments. But there have been a few situations lately where I say this in my head to keep me going. Maybe I don’t have a specific person to direct it to but it gives me the inner push to dig deep and keep going.
Roar has been one of my favorites for the past couple of years, maybe it’s because it’s different than Eye of the Tiger. Maybe in your life you don’t have a lot of huge challenges but getting up and getting going in the morning can be hard. Maybe you have serious challenges and you feel like you’re constantly going through the fire. If we all remembered that we are champions, maybe it would make us more willing to take on challenges!
This last one is called Good Life and I love thinking about it like that. Being positive can be half the battle and I think when we look around at our blessings and see how much we actually have, we can see that we have a good life. And even if it’s not the life we want right now, we can see in the future that it will be. We can have faith that things will work out, maybe not the way we wanted them to, but we can make it a good life by recognizing our weaknesses and trying to become stronger.
What helps keep you motivated in your life?
