Music helps me A LOT. I listen to it daily when I run and walk on my own, and in times which test me – like the start of this week – it can really help me to get my head together.
A year or so I got together a playlist that I called my ‘Super Powers Playlist’ – a list of all of my favourite and upbeat songs. Good to run to, or good to listen to, the list contained over 150 songs. From Rudimental to the Script, from Foo Fighters to Florence & the machine and from the Prodigy to Peter Paul & Mary – over 10 hours of feel good music.
Then, not so long ago, I picked out some songs that were special to me, and put them into a Super Powers 10 list. It was meant to contain 10 songs – but it ended up with 17 songs / just over an hour of my favourite and most motivational music – (to hopefully help to fill me full of Super Powers.)
On Monday, I played the tunes, and many of them helped me to feel strong and powerful, confident and content. Some mention rainbows, some sunshine and titanium… Some made me cry, but in the most part – they helped me bring my chin up and hold my head high. Chest up, eyes to the sky, big and strong – cape on. Body and mind filled with pride, Super Powers well and truly – ON. 🙂
