Sometimes being a girl is hard! I know this because I’m a girl and my brain never switches off. Ever. Even when I’m asleep my brain is still making a mental to do list for the next day.
Some days I’m so worn out and I’m scraping the bottom of the proverbial positivity barrel and I just can’t reach what is left… that is when I need to get it from somewhere else.
So, you know… that one song? The one song that sends invisible rays of power from your headphones or speakers right into you and makes you less sleep deprived,
more stubborn stronger… righteous?
Almost like your own personal fanfare song – or your Big Brother Eviction song?
This is mine…
If for nothing else but the base. Not only does this song make me pout like trout it makes me able to dance*, instantly lose 3 stone in weight* and conquer the world*!
Those songs that just give you enough (ahem) girl power to get through the grisly days.
