Anyone have a music playlist? I have several. One for the gym, one for spiritual nourishment, one for fun... For some reason I enjoy a making music playlists but I always find that a handful of songs are constantly on repeat. I'm about to share (in no particular order) these inspirational songs with you. They have kept me going throughout 2017.
Hope you find one that inspires you....
JESSIE J - QUEEN
I heard this track last weekend and immediately fell for its 'love yourself' message. Definitely one for the ladies!
INDIA ARIE - PRIVATE PARTY
This is about enjoying time with yourself. It's a feel good song that lifts your spirit and reminds you to be 'in-tune' with oneself.
JAMIROQUAI - EMERGENCY ON PLANET EARTH
I like an old school funk groove now and then and Jamiroquai fits the bill. Although an older track, it's relevancy, similar to Virtual Insanity, is poignant in today's society. It inspires you to stand up for what you believe in.
ALICIA KEYS - THE GOSPEL
This song gives you a clear and raw insight into the streets of New York. It's like a school lesson as Alicia Key's vocals flow over an infectious head-knocking beat. It's inspirational, as it's a reminder of some the 'Greats' that made it out of the circumstances described by Ms Keys in the song.
KIERRA SHEARD - REPPIN' MY GOD
The first time I heard this, I knew it would be a 'go to' track! It's fresh contemporary feel reminds you that you can have swag and be a Christian at the same time.
KALE - GET IT
This song is about being completely unapologetic about going for gold!
I've played this most of the year. It really gets me going in the gym.
MICHAEL JACKSON - WE'RE ALMOST THERE
This is a classy take on staying focused on your goals. Michael sings with such soul, it leaves you thinking that 'yeah, I am almost there...' It's guaranteed to make you smile.
DR ERIC THOMAS - DOMINATE
This is not a song (you'll see what I mean) but it's certainly a go getter track when working out at the gym!
MUSIQ - I DO
Not so much an inspirational song but a fresh take on marriage...
INDIA ARIE - I AM LIGHT
I created my vision board to this song! The first time I heard it, I thought it was so beautiful and the lyrics were so simple, yet, self-affirming, I just wanted to learn them straight away. This is by far, my inspirational song of the year!
