After having some serious dance sessions to Katy Perry’s “Firework” while at Kripalu, I was reminded of how powerful an inspiring song can be. It takes you out of your ego instantly. It lifts you up.
For the past two years, I’ve become a big believer in having a positivity playlist. I created one after realizing that a couple of the songs on my iPod about breakups, anger and sadness were making me feel, well, lousy.
I hope that these songs make you smile. I hope that they remind you how powerful a piece of music can be.
