If you’ve been reading the site for a bit, you know that every Thursday I share Inspirational Jams with motivating music that I love. Some of them I love just a littleeee bit more than others.
These five tracks have been on repeat for me currently. From reggae artist Koffee to pop rocker Panic! At The Disco, this short list reflects my eclectic musical tastes. However, they each motivate me in different ways whether it’s to live a life of gratitude, hustle my butt off and be strategic with my moves, or simply to love myself a little bit better. I hope that they serve you in the same.
“Can we quit paying attention to opinions and perfections before we run out of youth? Oh, ’cause we got flaws in all of us, but that’s what makes us glorious…”
I wanted to share this Inspirational Jam from singer Ella Henderson for those like me who struggle with loving themselves as they are. I hope this uplifts you today and beyond!
When the official video for “Glorious” was released, Ella shared this on her Instagram which I think perfectly sums up the gist of the song:
“Self love & acceptance is something that I am still on my own personal journey with & I feel it’s so important for my fans & anyone to know that we will only ever be the best versions of ourselves once we fully embrace every part of who we are. Appreciate what you have, don’t dwell on what you haven’t. Surround yourself with real people who are only there for your best interests. Try to shush your inner critic & begin celebrating your strengths!
We make mistakes. We have flaws. We have physical, mental, and emotional things about us that we don’t like. I know I pick myself apart worse than any other critic out here ever could. I’m working on loving myself and learning that, even the things I consider flaws have their beauty. I have things to work on for myself, but I’m learning to love where I am right now. This song reminds me to continue that work.
