It has been 3 days past celebrating Women’s Day. Things are slipping back to as usual. We, women, are back to being daughters, sisters, girlfriends, wives, mothers… workers, doctors, engineers, authors, scientists, astronauts and so-so much more…
One Life and so many roles… but we play them all and we play them well!
Though there are few times when juggling with so much in life makes us tardy… coming face to face with some adverse situations starts pulling us down. Things look bleak, paths crop up with obstacles… the confidence wavers, and thoughts become unclear.
During these times, giving up is not an option. These are the times when we need reinforcement. Something which recharges up and makes us come back with force.
When I am surrounded by such situations, I turn towards Music. Music is my solace. It invokes my hidden energy. It peps me up like nothing else.
So, when I decided to be a part of this blog-chain celebrating Women, I decided to share this part of my life which keeps me positive and keeps me going. These songs cheer me up, make me rise and help me taking the bull by its horns.
Below are my 15 Power songs (in no specific order) which I want to share with you for this Women’s Day. These songs boost me, comfort me, mend me and just push me back in my groove. They are my anthems for life.
Listen to them and make them your recharging fuel.
1) GOD IS A WOMAN by ARIANA GRANDE
Lyric that I love- ‘… And I can be all the things you told me not to be’
2) BRAVE by SARA BAREILLES
Lyric that I love- ‘…Everybody’s been there, Every body’s been stared down by the enemy.
Don’t Run. Stop holding your tongue.
Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out.’
3) THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS by MARTINA McBRIDE
This is such a beautiful song. Makes me feel young. Not only this, it is perfect for my daughters as they are growing, have dreams of their own, have some difficulties in school… this one is for them. With a country vibe, this song makes you sway and feel light.
4) THAT’S MY GIRL by THE FIFTH HARMONY

9) SCARS TO YOUR BEAUTIFUL by ALEISSA CARA

just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing
the world could change its heart’
10) FIGHT SONG by RACHEL PLATTEN
Lyrics that I love- ‘and I don’t really care if nobody else believes
’cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me’
11) ROAR by KATY PERRY

12) IDGAF by DUA LIPA

you have got me wrong
So I cut you off

your time is up’
13) LOVE MYSELF by HAILEE STEINFELD
Lyric that I love- ‘gonna love myself, no, I don’t need anybody else’
14) WHO SAYS by SELENA GOMEZ

15) THIS IS ME by KEALA SETTLE
Lyrics that I love- ‘But I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are glorious
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me’
So, these are few of many songs which refresh and rejuvenate me. Hearing them makes me want to soar high and conquer the world. Hope you too liked them.
