Music Mood Board: When You Need to Be Reminded of Your Worth
Welcome to the first instalment of Music Mood Board! I'll be sharing weekly roundups of tunes that perfectly align with my current mood. That means I'm trusting y'all with my (*gulps*) feelings in hopes that we can all connect through mutual emotions and universal experiences.
This week, I've been focusing heavily on inspiring tracks with messages of self-love. Full disclosure, I recently went through something that spurred me into a pit of loneliness and self-doubt. Of course, social distancing and staying in my apartment as much as possible only intensified those feelings, as I was forced to ruminate on my negative thoughts. But each day has been getting better, and it feels like I've hit a turning point. In addition to meditating, I've been extracting my self-destructive contemplations with songs that affirm my worth and value. (I also FaceTimed one of my best friends who helped me curate a very empowering playlist.) So, yes, there's been a lot of Beyoncé in the musical mix, as well as CHIKA and Jessie Reyez. Because those singers thrive off a "no-f*cks-given" attitude, and that's the energy I need. Keep reading to see all the songs I've had on repeat!
