Some days, the motivation doesn’t come. The inspiration well is tapped, the to-do list is overwhelmingly long, the coffee’s just not kicking in, and I need a kick in the ass to buckle down and get done what needs to get done. Music is totally a game-changer for me (and I know I’m not the only one), so when I’m in need of a boost, I keep this playlist in my back pocket. Featuring some of the baddest bitches ever, it’s a compilation of empowering music that spans genres and decades to serve as an in-your-face reminder of what it means to be a badass.
Mind you, these songs are SO different from my usual workday jams – like when I’m writing or coding, I listen to ambient music that’s all beats and grooves, because lyrics make me want to sing along and/or end up being transcribed into whatever I happen to be doing at the moment. So this is more of a playlist for times when I’m cranking through graphics and creatives or trying push my own magic up to the surface. It’s also one of my favorite ways to start the day, and my recommendation is to serve up these songs with your morning coffee for optimal results.
If you’re on Spotify, make sure to follow the list – I update it often! What songs would you add?
