Music, is so influential, isn’t it? It helps you through the good times as well as the bad. It can rekindle memories, make you laugh and become emotional.

However, my favorite songs that get me through those crappy mornings, my anxiety filled afternoons and my drained nights are those lyrics of empowerment! These songs motivate and push me to another dimension. They are suitable for all occasions. I look at myself having an eclectic taste in music. But, it’s something about our music that I can relate to and recognize my power.

Here is my playlist for Monday, that I promise will awaken the inner queen in you!
