Ever had a week where you think to yourself “WTF?¬†…Seriously?”

I had me one of them last week. Things just seemed unsettled and more difficult than usual. Being a girl who takes pride in the fact that my default ‘Happy Setting’ hovers on the up-side of average, this feeling of discontent knocked the ‘happy’ right out of me, then kicked me in the stomach while I agonised on the floor in a puddle of self pity and low confidence. Let me tell you, it’s not a good look for me, or anyone, for that matter!

So what do I do when I feel my head needs to shut the f up and shake it off? I listen to music and shake my ass.

When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do, is turn on my music. When I walk into the studio, the first thing I do is turn on my music. When I’m in the car, on a trip that’s longer than the one from home to the studio, the first thing I do (if I don’t put on one of my many Audible books) is turn on my music.

The louder the better!!

So, last week I decided I’d get myself out of my funk, by putting together a little music playlist. I asked on my Facebook page as well, and have added a few of those suggestions too.


So anytime you’re feeling a little low in the confidence department, then turn up the volume and listen to any of these songs…
