“Try” Colbie Caillat


Colbie Caillat made an impact on all girls when she released this song, encouraging them to be nothing more than their best self, but naturally of course.

“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/You don’t have to change a single thing.”

“Fight Song” Rachel Platten


This could be one of the best songs to listen to when you are feeling discouraged. This will instantly make you feel like you can take on the world.

“I don’t really care if nobody else believes/I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me.”

“Stronger” Kelly Clarkson

For all of those times that you think that something bad has ruined you, remember that “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

“Born This Way” Lady Gaga


It’s hard to convince yourself to not beat yourself up for not being as “perfect” as everyone else but you have to remember that you are who you are for a reason and that’s what makes you awesome.

“I’m beautiful in my way/’Cause God makes no mistakes/I’m on the right track, baby. I was born this way.”

“I Hope You Dance” Lee Ann Womack

Sometimes it may feel like you’re all out of opportunities but that is never the case.

“I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean/Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens/Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance/And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.”

“A Little Bit Stronger” Sara Evans

For the times that you think a breakup defines or destroys you, this is the perfect song to remind you that you will get through it and it’s okay to be alone.

“I’m telling myself I’ll be okay/Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.”

“Who Says” Selena Gomez

Sweet and simple, you always have to remember to love yourself.

“You’ve got every right to a beautiful life.”

“Skyscraper” Demi Lovato

People will try to knock you down in life but the best thing you can do is stand back up tall and strong.

“Go on and try to tear me down/I will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper.”

“I’m Coming Out” Diana Ross

This song is fun to blast in your car, to start your day off just right.

“I’m completely positive/I think this time around/I am gonna do it.”

“The Climb” Miley Cyrus

You have to make sure you pay attention to have far you have made it, not just how much further you have to go.

“Ain’t about how fast I get there/Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side/It’s the climb.”
