Artist: Mary J. Blige|Song: “Just Fine”
Music Moves Us.
Today I want women everywhere to embrace and love yourself (we should do this as often as possible). Find some music to soothe your mind, make you smile, feel inspired or dance. Last time, Atlantic Starr lifted my spirits, today I went with Mary! This is one of my favorite happy songs. I still love Beyonce’s “Diva” and Whitney Houston’s “I’m Every Woman“. However, when I listen to these lyrics… I’m hyped and I have to get up and sing.
Music Isn’t Your Thing?
Take time to watch your favorite actress today. I saw “Dolores Claiborne“, starring Kathy Bates for the first time today. It was an incredible film. The quote that most resonated with me was, “Sometimes being a bitch is all a woman has to hang on to.” Another great movie, to check out is “The Color Purple“, starring Whoopi Goldberg. Recently, I enjoyed binge watching Laverne Cox and a diverse cast of actresses star in “Orange Is The New Black.” And 9 to 5 which stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton will forever be on my awesome film list.
There is a plethora of films available that portray woman in difficult yet empowering roles. I would like for you to find something thought provoking, humorous, some type of media to indulge in… even a good book or a blog to read. Maybe working out or self-gratification is how you unwind.
Self love/self care is everything, I want you to find a way to relax everyday.
Happy Women’s Day
