Music is, in my opinion, one of the most powerful, influential, and incredible things in life. It can influence your mental state in the most obvious of ways; you could be feeling really sad and listen to an upbeat, motivational song and it has you up, out of bed, and smiling. Dancing, even! Or you could be dancing and singing loudly in the shower when a sad, moving, song jumps into your Spotify playlist and all of a sudden, you’re remembering a difficult time in your life when all of these heart-breaking lyrics applied to it.

“Everywhere I’m looking now, I’m surrounded by your embrace, Baby, I can see your halo, You know you’re my saving grace”

This song was playing on my 18th Birthday party when Ronnie and I had our first dance together. Now we’re engaged and planning our Wedding and we have this song down as our song for our first dance as Mr and Mrs.

“I’m proud of who I am, No more monsters, I can breathe again, And you said that I was done, Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come”

I actually wrote a post motivated by this song, to save my fingers from typing; read it here

“And we know we can’t go back again, To the world that we were living in, ‘Cause we’re dreaming with our eyes wide open, So, come alive!”

This song is such a motivational number; the entire Greatest Showman soundtrack (which you can buy here) is motivational (I wrote about one of the songs here)!!
