Motivational Music

Hi there internet friends.

Thanks to Tumblr I finally know that I am not alone. I am not the only one who´s mood depends on music. My dependence on Music is so bad I think Music should be considered as being a drug (which then again would make it illegal to listen to music. Nah, I haven't thought this through..) You know from my Hello 2014 blogpost what my resolutions for this year are. I thought I´d stress them this year with two songs. Both songs represent what I basically want to achieve this year: I want to be more myself and care less about what others think about that.

The first song is Brave by Sara Bareilles.


Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
And they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins

Yeah, that´s basically me right now. I take everything personal. If you say something bad about my hair, I will not wear it that way again.

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

That´s what I want to do. I want to be brave and say what I thinke more.

 Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live

I feel like I was in a cage and since I stopped caring so much I feel so free.

Innocence, your history of silence
Won’t do you any good
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Yeah, why don´t I? 

I want to see you be brave

That´s what I wish for at the moment. I want to see myself being brave all the way.


The second song is Roar by Katy Perry.

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely

I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

Again, that´s just who I was last year. But...

You held me down, but I got up
Get ready cause I've had enough

... I want to get up and show the world what is in me this year.

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar

I know that I am great the way I am, just the world doesn´t know that yet. But this year, I will make my stand, be myself and be louder than I used to. I don´t want to go back to being held down by someone or something.

I know that this is not really a typical blogpost for me, but it is something I wanted to share. I know there are a lot of quiet and shy people out there just like I am when it comes to being myself. If I can do it this year and if I can be brave this year, so can you. There´s no one stopping you but yourself. 

Music has always helped me with motivating me to do something. Maybe it can do the same for you. 

Also both songs are something almost everyone can relate with, but they are not sad because of that. They sound happy and totally motivating and that´s what makes them so great.

Have a wonderful day
