Today’s Music Monday post is all about inspiration, body positivity and self-love. Not feelin’ it today? Maybe these songs will help.
Try by Colbie Caillat
The masks we wear? They’re not necessary and you don’t need to change to be you. Or, more importantly, to like you.
All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor
It’s not just a curvy girl anthem, it’s a body love anthem. “Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top.” Yes!
You and I by John Legend
Beauty is more than surface deep. Accept that compliment, because odds are it was given freely and meant sincerely and your partner is with you because she or he wants to be. See through their eyes once in a while. You might be surprised what you find.
Brave by Sara Bareilles
We all know words can hurt. When they’re trapped inside, when we don’t let them out? That’s when they do real damage. Be brave and let it out.
Follow Your Arrow by Kacey Musgraves
Life is short. Is it really worth living up to other people’s (sometimes unrealistic) expectations? Just do your own thing.
Roar by Katy Perry
This one is probably pretty self-explanatory. However, I chose a non-official video for this song because Amanda Trusty’s performance is amazing and full of self-empowerment. Also, it’s possibly NSFW. You can find the official video here.
It Gets Better by Rebecca Drysdale
Because despite all the work ahead, all the oppression people deal with every single day, it DOES get better. Watch it twice. Then again. It’s so worth it. Then take it with you, cause really, it doesn’t matter what your “weird” is — it gets better.
So, what songs inspire you?
