I was thinking about the movie Rocky recently and the iconic montage of clips where he runs throughout the neighborhood and poses on the top of the stairs while the classic Rocky theme song plays in the background. This film inspired me to think of all the songs on my own playlist, and to figure out which specific songs made me feel as powerful as Rocky did in that scene.
I have complied a list of powerful songs to share with you all, to inspire you to find your own power anthem. I have to admit, I listen to some songs more than others because I feel each song has it’s own specific message that help me in specific scenarios.
I hope that by sharing these songs with you, it will help you to find your own power anthem, or at the very least, it helps you cope as you are on your own journey. Whatever season you are going through, I wish for you to feel victorious.
