What I Listen to when I need some push and motivation in different situations


Music has always been very powerful. It can make or breakour mood. But most often than not, we would listen to music that is:

  1. Popular
  2. From our favorite singer/band
  3. Beautifully composed and arranged
  4. Would uplift our spirit
  5. would change our mood

But aside from these facts, we listen to music that reflectsour emotions and mood for that particular day. We associate how we feel withwhat song we would listen to. So for this entry, I am sharing with you tensongs that I listen to whenever I feel down and needs some motivation. Also you can listen to all of these songs by clicking this link: https://spoti.fi/2CwKMvP

When I feel discouraged:  

  1. The Voice of Truth/ Casting Crowns

I think this song is very much popular to Christians because obviously this is a Christian song but I think everyone can listen to this because of the message of the song. This is the line that I love:

Oh what I would do to have the kind of faith

It takes to climb out of this boat I’m in,

Onto the crashing waves.

To step out of my comfort zone

Into the realm of the unknown

Where Jesus is

And He’s holding out His Hands

But the waves are calling out my name andthey laugh at me

Reminding me of all the time I tried beforeand failed

The waves they keep on telling me time andtime again

Boy you’ll never win, you’ll never win

But the Voice of truth tells me a differentstory

The Voice of Truth says do not be afraid

And the voice of truth, says this is for myglory

Out of all the voices calling out to me

I will choose to listen and believe theVoice of Truth

So that was the first part of the song but as a whole, the message is to keep believing to whatever it is that you believe, that you can achieve things, that you can be what you want to be by believing and by having faith. That whatever it is that the multitudes might say, it would always be your beliefs that will make you a winner, which will always make you triumphant.

2. Say Yes/ Michelle Williams, Beyonce, Kelly Rowland

Again a Christian Song sang by theDestiny’s Child. Aside from me being a big fan, the message of this song isjust extraordinary because again, if you feel like people is not believing inyou or they are trying to put you down and discourage you, when Jesus says yes,nobody can say no.

I’m not worried about a thing

Cause I know you are guiding me

Where you lead me Lord I will go

I have no fear cause I know who’s in control

There’s no limit to what you can do

Cause it all belongs to you

Yes it all belongs to you

You are almighty and all powerful

And it all belongs to you

Yes it all belongs to you

When Jesus say yes nobody can say no

         When Jesus say yes nobody can say no

                                        When Jesus say yes nobody can say no

        When Jesus say yes nobody can say no

3. Survivor/ Destiny’s Child

I told you I’m a big fan! Who’s not listening tothis song? I mean its super brilliant! Whenever someone wants to leave or leftyou thinking that when they do, you’ll be a pile of garbage, then this songsuggests you can’t be that! You can be successful even without these people whodoesn’t believe in you or who doesn’t want to do anything with you anymore.

I’m a survivor, I’m not gone give up

I’m not gon’ stop, I’m gon’ work harder

I’m a survivor, I’m gonna make it

I will survive, keep on surviving

4. The Climb/ Miley Cyrus

I’ve always loved Miley Cyrus back when she stillsings the way she is before and this song is really one of her most beautifulsongs. It reminds me that no matter how hard the process is, no matter howunsure you are, you should always chase and follow your dreams and that mostoften than not, the climb, the way to success is actually a lot more fun thanwhen you’re already there.

There’s always gonna be there mountain

I’m always gonna wanna make it move

Always gonna be an uphill battle

Sometimes you gotta have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there

Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side

It’s the climb

After breaking up:

5. Best Thing I Never Had/ Beyonce

I love the chorus of this song because it says itall when you think you found the one yet your wrong and realized that you areactually the best thing he never had.

When I think that there was a time that Ialmost loved you

You show your ass and baby yes I saw thereal you

Thank God you blew it

I thank God I dodged the bullet

I’m so over you so baby good looking out

I wanted you bad, I’m so through with that

Cause honestly you turned out to be the

Best thing I never had

You turned out to be the

Best thing I never had

And I’m gon’ always be the best thing younever had

Oh baby, I bet it sucks to be you right now

6. Irreplaceable/ Beyonce

Well, who doesn’t love this song? I mean, it wasthe international anthem back in 2008-2009. And still, it is the anthem ofthose people who has been fooled by their flame.

So since I’m not youreverything

How about I’ll benothing

Nothing at all to you

Baby I wont shed atear for you

I wont loose wink ofsleep

Cause the truth of thematter is

Replacing you is so easy

7. Stronger/ Kelly Clarkson

Who doesn’t like this? This song can be anyone’santhem. I always believed that when a relationship ended because of seriousproblems caused by one party, the aggrieved party should always make his/herself stronger and proud. I mean, you shouldn’t just sit and wait for him/herto comeback, you are always good and you can be better even after arelationship.

What doesn’t kill you make you stronger

Stand a little taller

Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

When I need to reflect:

8. I was here/ Beyonce

Whenever I feel like I am forgetting why I am hereon earth, I would listen to this song because it gives me the motivation to dosomething good for other people. When I say do something good, it isn’tnecessary to really do something big and spectacular. Smiling, as what I alwayssay in my IG posts can really help and motivate other people that you encountereach and everyday. You can always be a blessing to others by simply smiling.Show them that love indeed exists.

I was here

I lived I loved

I was here

I did, I’ve done

Everything that I wanted

And it was more than I thought it would be

I will leave my mark

So everyone will know

I was here

9. Where is the love/ Black Eyed Peas

When I feel like I’m being bad or have hurt someone too much, this song reminds me that only love can make this world a better place after the grace of God.  Also, this song reminds me the reality of this world and that we should actually do something to end war, violence in any form and even racism all over the world. We are all humans and we should remind ourselves that.

People killing people dying

Children hurt and you hear them crying

Can you practice what you preach?

And would you turn the other cheek?

Father father father help us

Send some guidance from above

Cause people got me got me questioning

Where is the Love?

10. Field of opportunity/ Neil Young

Growing up, I would always hear Neil Young playingin our house. My most favorite is this one because it reminds me to alwaysplant good things so that whatever happens with you in the future, you will beokay because you were able to plat good things. I mean, you’re prepared.

In the field of opportunity its plowin’ timeagain

There ain’t no way of telling where theseseeds will rise or when

I’ll just wait around ‘til spring time

And then, I’ll find a friend

In the field of opportunity it’s plowin’time again.
