I read a blog post recently giving a party playlist. I looked over the songs and laughed. They were fun speaker-throbbing songs from the 1970s to today, and I could sing half of them in my head. The more current ones I didn’t know but the titles made me thankful I didn’t have those words spinning on a loop in my head.
Then this morning driving into work I heard Burn for You by Toby Mac and it made me want to dance. I actually did do a little car dance – I’m sure the guy in the car next to me thought I was high.
But since I need to lose some weight and am going back on Weight Watchers and back into the gym, it made me realize I need a playlist. A positive playlist that could wake me up in the morning and inspire me to run instead of walk as well as put positive words in my head as I start the day.
So here’s my positive playlist for any of you headed off to the gym or just in the mood for a little car dancing – I warn you, some of it is old school Christian pop:
I ended with Get Back Up because I love the lyrics, especially if you’re getting back on the work out wagon like me:
It’s never too late to get back up again
And one day you gonna’ shine again
You may be knocked down, but not out forever
