Everybody just loves them some Keda. Apparently I am some effervescent ray of sunshine, who’s always happy and perky and chipper and positive. Sometimes however, just like any other
super human, I get discouraged and depressed about the vicissitudes of life.
Interacting with people
you don’t like on a daily basis, watching your dreams fall through and generally just living, takes a toll on you at times. This is when I go to my picker-upper stash of inspiration, motivation and everything in between to get that extra nudge back on track.
There is music and then there is Andra Day and more specifically, ‘Rise Up‘. Have you ever listened to this song? This gives me life! When I’ve had a really shitty day or failed after trying something I put this song on blast and after the third or so time I feel like I can conquer the world once again.
Other songs on my playlist:
Sun Screen– Baz Luhrmann provides raw, sage advice about navigating life and I love it. This presentation is so real and down to earth. I can definitely relate and it really picks me up when I feel like I can’t get back up.
Disderata- Have you heard this? If you have not, stop what you are doing and go take a listen, then come back and let me know if this did not get you high as a kite!
Phenomenal Woman– Maya Angelou makes me feel all kinds of how with this epic rendition.
Still I Rise- Another favorite of mine from Maya Angelou, it lifts my spirit every time.
Serenity- There is something about the serenity prayer that gives me the energy I need to take life by the balls.
This list is by no means exhaustive, obviously, but lately I have been needing some inspiration and motivation and I wanted to share this with you. This is not the tone of my regular posts but we all have those days don’t we.
Tell me your go to source of inspiration and motivation when you just can’t, in the comments below.
