Music is something I’ve always found to be helpful no matter what mood I am in. It has the ability to evoke emotion and help you process your feelings. It also holds the power to inspire, heal, energize, lift your spirit, relax your mind, give you hope, provide an escape from reality, etc.

Here I’ve comprised a list of songs that serve to inspire, motivate, and lift you up:

Beautiful – Christina Aguilera

“You are beautiful, no matter what they say. Words can’t bring you down.” Don’t let anybody make you feel less than what you are: Beautiful. ♥

Congratulations – Post Malone feat. Quavo

“I dreamed it all ever since I was young. They said I wouldn’t be nothing, now they always say congratulations. Worked so hard, forgot how to vacation. They ain’t never had the dedication, people hatin’, say we changed and look we made it.” Haters are going to hate and try to discourage you but don’t let them stop you from living your dreams. ♥

Diva – Beyonce

“Diva is the female version of a hustler.” Just because you are a female does not mean you can’t achieve just as much as a male, don’t let anybody let you think differently. ♥

Don’t Stop Believing – Journey

“Don’t stop believing, hold on to the feeling.” Always believe in yourself and keep pushing onward. Remember how gratifying it is when you fulfill a goal. ♥

Don’t Worry Be Happy – Bobby McFerrin

“Don’t worry, be happy. In every life we have some trouble, but when you worry you make it double.” Things are going to happen, it’s inevitable, but you need to try to stay calm and get through it because worrying is going to do nothing but make it worse. Stay positive. ♥

Here Comes the Sun – The Beatles

“Here comes the sun, and I say, it’s all right.” Look on the bright side of every situation in life and you will find that you are a much happier person. ♥

Human – The Killers

“And sometimes I get nervous when I see an open door. Close your eyes, clear your heart.” Everybody gets nervous sometimes but don’t let it prevent you from going forward and taking advantage of an opportunity. Just take a deep breath and believe in yourself, you can do it. ♥

Imagine – John Lennon

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope some day you’ll join us, and the world will be as one.” Everyone has dreams of their own, take yours and run with it. ♥

It’s My Life – Bon Jovi

“Tomorrow’s getting harder, make no mistake. Luck ain’t enough, you’ve got to make your own breaks. It’s my life, and it’s now or never.” Don’t hesitate to go after what you want. Be confident, take action and achieve greatness. ♥

Let’s Go – Calvin Harris Feat. NE-YO

“It’s not about what you’ve done, it’s about what you’re doing. It’s all about where you’re going no matter where you’ve been.” Don’t dwell on the past, focus on the future and where you want to go with your life. ♥

Manifest – Russ

“Movin’ to the rhythm of my intuition, anything I want I speak into existence. That’s how I’m living, that’s how I’m winning.” Follow your gut instinct, and make your dreams reality. Don’t let anything or anyone hold you back. ♥

Not Afraid – Eminem

“I’m not afraid, to take a stand. Everybody, come take my hand. We’ll walk this road together, through the storm, whatever weather, cold or warm. Just letting you know that you’re not alone.” Even if there is a time where you feel alone, just remember that you never are. There are people around you that are there for you, whether it be a teacher, friends, or family. ♥

Skyscraper – Demi Lovato

“Go on and try to tear me down, I will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper.” Have a strong sense of self, don’t let other people’s words get to you. Remember, when somebody treats you poorly, it’s a reflection on their character, not yours. ♥

Stand By Me – Ben E. King

“No I won’t be afraid, just as long as you stand, stand by me.” Surround yourself with people that will support you on all your endeavors and things will feel a lot less frightening. ♥

Started From the Bottom – Drake

“Started from the bottom now we’re here.” We all need to start from somewhere but progress is always possible. One day you will look back and be proud of how far you’ve come. ♥

Stronger – Kanye West

“Now that that don’t kill me, can only make me stronger.” Don’t look at failure as weakness but instead, look at it as a lesson learned so you don’t make the same mistake twice. ♥

Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) – Kelly Clarkson

“You try to break me but you see, 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.” Don’t let anybody knock you down, hold your ground and be unstoppable. ♥

We are the Champions – Queen

“We are the champions my friend. We’ll keep on fighting till the end.” Never give up, keep trying even if you fail and soon enough you will reach success. ♥

What a Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong

“I see skies of blue and clouds of white, the bright blessed day, the dark sacred night. And I think to myself what a wonderful world.” There is so much beauty out there, all you have to do is open your eyes and appreciate all that is around you. ♥

You Gotta Be – Des’ree

“You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser. You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger.” The world may be a tough place but as long as you believe in your own inner strength, you can overcome anything. ♥

I hope you find these songs as inspirational as I do!

∼ Taylor ♥ xoxo
