Music, oh how I love thee let me count the ways.
Music is a fantastic thing. It can give words to the emotions you are feeling. A simple playlist of songs can empower you, build confidence, make you happy to remind you of heartache. Music can be your outlet for emotions.
Let’s face it we all have blue days. We know the things we shouldn’t do — hate on ourselves, compare ourselves to others around us, hang with that toxic friend with the doctorate in passive-aggressive compliments (“Fun haircut!”) — but we do it all anyway. We get down, start giving into self-doubt and before long we are questioning everything in our life.
But what if instead of giving in to self-doubt and second-guessing we empower our self. It’s easy instead of listening to the voices in your head that want to be a negative nelly reach for your playlist of empowering music. Put in your earbuds go for a walk, a bike ride, or find a quiet place and become one with the music. Building your confidence and empowering the positivity in your life can be as easy as creating a playlist or practicing good habits.
Songs That Help Empower You And Build Your Confidence
This Is Me
This powerful song is fight song. It is sung by Keala Settle and it’s about declaring love for yourself.
Most empowering lyric: When the sharpest words wanna cut me down/
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown ’em out/
I am brave, I am bruised/
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Broken & Beautiful
This song is empowering because it’s about being broken but broken and the broken part is just as beautiful.
Most empowering lyric: I know I’m superwoman / I know I’m strong / I know I’ve got this cause I’ve had it all along / I’m phenomenal and I’m enough / I don’t need you to tell me who to be
All that matters is that you love you despite what anyone says.
Most empowering lyric: But who are you to judge / When you’re a diamond in the rough / I’m sure you got some things / You’d like to change about yourself / But when it comes to me / I wouldn’t want to be anybody else
This is song all about igniting that fight within.
Most empowering lyric: And I don’t really care if nobody else believes / ‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me
Imagine waking up every day, feeling this good about yourself. Goals, honestly.
Most empowering lyric: And I can’t help lovin’ myself / And I don’t need nobody else /If I was you I’d wanna be me, too
This song is all about believing you are beautiful and not letting anyone tell you any different.
Most empowering lyric: I am beautiful / No matter what they say / Words can’t bring me down / I am beautiful / In every single way / Yes words can’t bring me down / Oh no / So don’t you bring me down today
Scars To Your Beautiful
Everyone is beautiful in their own way.
Most empowering lyric: But there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark / You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are / And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart / No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
Sometimes, you just need to get back up.
Most empowering lyric: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger / Stand a little taller / Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone / What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter / Footsteps even lighter / Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone
News flash: You’re a badass.
Most empowering lyric: You don’t have to feel like a waste of space / You’re original, cannot be replaced / If you only knew what the future holds / After a hurricane comes a rainbow
