“Loving Me” Playlist

lovingmeplaylistDid you know there’s such a thing as Broken-Heart Syndrome? Well, there is. And according to the American Heart Association, it’s most common in women.

It’s a “sudden, intense chest pain” that typically comes as a result of an emotionally stressful situation. That situation could be a betrayal, a divorce, death of someone you love, a breakup or romantic rejection.

So yes, ladies. It’s very real.

I’m not diagnosing you – obvi I’m no doctor! But I do have a little cure for the Valentine’s Day blues. We all know how music could be therapeutic which is why I had it on my heart to rediscover some awesome songs that’ll keep you through this holiday and just everyday life!

It can be hard seeing those lovey-dovey commercials. It can be hard going into stores and seeing huge teddy bears, roses and tempting chocolates. It can be especially hard seeing couples boo-loving seemingly everywhere.

But how about you show some love to yourself? My “Loving Me” YouTube playlist is filled with “feel goods” that will remind you of your beauty, your worth and what you deserve. They will empower you and illustrate that you are loved. (Hey! I did create this playlist with you in mind.)

This is for you – any woman and every woman learning to appreciate every aspect of herself with or without a special somebody. You are that special somebody. So belt these songs out – woo yourself. After all, you gotta love you first.

Try – Colbie Caillat
“You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing”

Pretty Hurts – Beyonce
“Pretty hurts
Shine the light on whatever’s worse
Perfection is the disease of a nation
Pretty hurts
Shine the light on whatever’s worse
Tryna fix something
But you can’t fix what you can’t see
It’s the soul that needs the surgery”

Beautifully Made – Leah Smith
“Sure you’re not famous (you may not be)
And you may not be a millionaire (may not be a millionaire)
May not be the smartest one, the strongest one, the cutest one – find your identity elsewhere
And you’ll walk with your head held high
See, I’ll smile ’cause I know that I am
Beautifully and wonderfully made”

Who You Are – Jessie J
“Don’t lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard, to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising,
Just be true to who you are”

Perfect – P!nk
“Pretty, pretty please
Don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than
Less than perfect
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing
Less than perfect to me”

Invincible – Kelly Clarkson
“Now I am invincible
No, I ain’t a scared little girl no more
Yeah, I am invincible
What was I running for
I was hiding from the world
I was so afraid, I felt so unsure
Now I am invincible
Another perfect storm”

Flaws – Kierra Sheard
“My flaws
You love you love my flaws
Think they make me beautiful
You don’t see them as flaws at all
That’s why, that’s why that’s why I love you
Cause you are you are the one who
The one who loves my flaws”

Lovin Me – Jonathan McReynolds
“And when I look in the mirror and don’t like what I see
Oh, I just thank you for always lovin’ me.
And I know I get bad but you wait patiently
I just want to thank you for always lovin’ me.”

Masterpiece (Mona Lisa) – Jazmine Sullivan
“Every part of me is a vision of a portrait
Of Mona, of Mona Lisa
Every part of me is beautiful
And I finally see I’m a work of art
A masterpiece”

Brand New Me – Alicia Keys
“Careful with your ego
He’s the one that we should blame
Had to grab my heart back
God knows something had to change
I thought that you’d be happy
I found the one thing I need
Why you mad?
It’s just a brand new kinda me”

More Beautiful You – Jonny Diaz
“There could never be a more beautiful you
Don’t buy the lies, disguises and hoops, they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you”

Skyscraper – Demi Lovato
“You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper”

Dear No One – Tori Kelly
“So if you’re out there I swear to be good to you
But I’m done lookin’, for my future someone
Cause when the time is right
You’ll be here, but for now
Dear no one, this is your love song”

He Knows My Name – Francesca Battistelli
“Spent today in a conversation
In the mirror face to face with
somebody less than perfect
I wouldn’t choose me first if
I was looking for a champion
In fact I’d understand if
You picked everyone before me
But that’s just not my story
True to who You are
You saw my heart
and made
Something out of nothing”

Kings & Queens – Brooke Fraser
“We’ve got a long way to go but we got the energy
It took a little while to find reality
We’ve come a long way you know, living inside a dream
Waking to find that we are kings and queens”

Flawless – MercyMe
“No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless”

Happy – Leona Lewis
“So what if it hurts me?
So what if I break down?
So what if this world just throws me off the edge
My feet run out of ground
I gotta find my place
I wanna hear my sound
Don’t care about all the pain in front of me
Cause i’m just trying to be happy, yeah
Just wanna be happy, yeah”

Unbreakable Smile
La da da da dee, you’re not breaking me
La de da da da, ain’t got time for ya, singing
La da da da dee, you won’t shatter me
La de da da da, got an unbreakable smile

Beautiful – Mali Music
“I put my lighter in the air for you
I see whatch’u doing, yeah I see whatch’u go through
Put my lighter in the air, the truth is you’re beautiful, beautiful
Now put your lighter in the air for us,
Everybody singin’ together, sing a new song
Put your lighter in the air for love is beautiful, beautiful”

Gold – Britt Nicole
“This, this is for all the girls, boys all over the world
Whatever you’ve been told, you’re worth more than gold
So hold your head up high, it’s your time to shine
From the inside out it shows, you’re worth more than gold
You’re worth more than gold”

Wings – Little Mix
Mama told me not to waste my life,
She said spread your wings my little butterfly
Don’t let what they say keep you up at night
And they can’t detain you
‘Cause wings are made to fly
And we don’t let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say – it won’t hurt me
Don’t matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly

Treasure – Bruno Mars
“Pretty girl, pretty girl, pretty girl, you should be smiling
A girl like you should never look so blue
You’re everything I see in my dreams
I wouldn’t say that to you if it wasn’t true”

Brave – Sara Bareilles
“Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave”

Sit Still, Look Pretty – Daya
“Oh I don’t know what you’ve been told
But this gal right here’s gonna rule the world
Yeah that’s where I’m gonna be, because I wanna be
No I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty”

Roar – Katy Perry
“You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now”

Fight Song – Rachel Platten
“This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me”

Superwoman – Alicia Keys
“Cause I am a Superwoman
Yes I am
Yes she is
Even when I’m a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
Oh yes
I’m a Superwoman”
