You’ve been there right? You wake up on the wrong side of the bed. You didn’t get enough sleep. It feels like you just set your alarm, only to go off five minutes later—well that’s what it felt like. You put on the wrong shoes. You have a run in your tights. You forgot your earrings or the rain has your makeup dripping from you face. We’ve all be there and sometimes we just need music to take us away to a different place and to cheer you up. I have a few oldies and newbies that bump in my car pretty frequently. These songs motivate me to snap out of my bad mood, to take back my day and choose to live the next seconds, minutes and hours in a happier place and calmer consciousness. They either make me smile, laugh, immerse myself in deep thought or make me feel as if I can take on the world. I hope some of these songs on my Ultimate Motivation Playlist do the same for you.
