We all know that music has the power to influence mood. An upbeat song can keep you on the treadmill that extra mile and a sad ballad commercial can have you reaching for a tissue box.
Music can also help you find moments of strength and happiness when facing a challenging time in life. In a more light-hearted start to 2023, in this post, I will share some top empowerment songs to help elevate your mood and have you singing at the top of your lungs as you heal and move forward after divorce.
In her newest release Flowers (which dropped on her ex-husband’s birthday), Miley Cyrus sings about how she started to cry but then remembered she can buy herself flowers, write her name in the sand, talk to herself for hours and hold her own hand. This song is likely to join the long list of others that uplift and encourage, including:
- I Will Survive, Gloria Gaynor
- Wide Awake, Katie Perry
- We are Never Ever Getting Back Together, Taylor Swift
- Stronger, Kelly Clarkson
- I’m Still Standing, Elton John
- I’m Movin’ On, Rascal Flatts
- Survivor, Destiny’s Child
- Brave, Sara Bareilles
- Roar, Katy Perry
- Good as Hell, Lizo
- So What, Pink
When you are done singing, go buy yourself flowers!
