10 Songs to Empower You Today

So I've been thinking a lot about empowerment lately.  Since this is my year, and I feel like I've taken life by horns (so to speak) I've been thinking about how we personally empower ourselves to do good things and make good things happen.  Good things for our lives, our families, our careers.  I know a lot of women who are awesome, but we all have down days, or years...

And while I know we don't always have things in control, I think attitude plays a big role.  So, if you don't feel up to the task today, here are a few songs to help you get there.  And I should say that I made this list thinking specifically of empowering the women in my life, but if they help someone else get through the day...awesome.

You're welcome.

Now go gettem'.
