motivated mondays {a new series}: 5 songs to get you through your day.

The beginning of a new year means a fresh start for everyone. I began my new year with a new name for my blog: Endless Bliss. With this new name, I'm excited to dedicate more of my time to my little corner of the internet and hopefully inspire my readers. One way that I want to do that is by starting a series called "Motivated Mondays." Every Monday, I'll post something motivational to start your week (and mine) off positively, including songs, quotes, stories, pictures, etc.

For the first week, I want to share 5 inspirational songs to help get you through your day. 
"Fighters" by Kris Allen
This is the perfect song to listen to when you feel like you've been fighting an uphill battle. It talks about how, no matter what you've been going through, you're stronger than it, and you were born to fight it.
"Dare You to Move" by Switchfoot
This song is perfect for when you've made a decision that you regret. It talks about facing our regrets head-on, instead of hiding from them, and moving on from them. It dares you to move on from them, and not get boggled down by your mistakes. 
"Good Life" by OneRepublic
I love this song. It's just a feel-good song about living it up. Live every moment like it's your last. No matter how old you are, you still have life to live, so make it a good one.
"New Tomorrow" by A Friend in London
This song has the perfect message for youth today, and, in my opinion, expresses how everyone should try to live their lives. Don't worry about fame or what other people think about you. Use your voice. Express yourself. Be you, not who everybody wants you to be. And just do something. Something meaningful. Change the future.
"Here's to Us" by Halestorm
I think a lot of adults can relate to this song. And it does have some explicit language in it, but I like how it's used. It's about just sitting back and remembering all of the hard times you faced and how you were able to get through them.
Helping me kick off Motivated Mondays, is one of this month's sponsors, Bailey from Becoming Bailey!

Hi! I'm Bailey from Becoming Bailey. I started my blog when I realized my time in college was winding down; there was so much I wanted to remember but already began to forget. Since then, I've graduated college and joined the real world. Join me on my crazy adventure in a new city as I begin my career. If you're new to Becoming Bailey, you'll want to check out these posts: 15 travel tips from my vacationThe time I stalked a celebrity, and What life is like as a triplet.

What's something you like to do to put yourself in a better mood?
I listen to upbeat music and light a candle. There's no problem that a pretty candle can't solve!

Who's your go-to person to talk to when you need some extra motivation?
My mom. She has a blunt personality, so if I need to get motivated she is great at pushing me to get a move on.

What's your comfort food?
Pizza. I could easily eat pizza all day, every day.

What makes you happy?
There are so many things that make me happy, I could write an entire book. I love sunny days, Burger King Frozen Cokes, chocolate chip cookies, and lemonade, among other things.

Don't forget to go check out Bailey's blog, and follow her on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook!

I hope you enjoyed the first week of "Motivated Mondays!" Have a good one.

  8. Happy Monday and Happy New Year, Tiffany! I am so digging the new name and the new layout, so pretty. OneRepublic is the perfect band to listen to get motivated. Their recent album is ear porn. :D

    Have a beautiful week.

  9. Those are some great songs. I always start my day by listening to music. Lately, I've been stuck on 90s music, mainly Jewel. Great series, looking forward to next week. Let me know if you ever want to team up for a week.

  11. I'm the same way! I have to listen to music in the morning or I'm just bleh. I listen to it when I'm getting dressed and putting on my make-up and such. And thanks so much for the sweet words! Teaming up would be so awesome! We'll have to come up with something fun! (and motivating of course haha)

  12. You are so welcome! I did the same thing over at Mostly Lisa! It's always nice to change it up when everything else is changing too. It looks great. Their songs are just so uplifting and powerful. I want to see the live someday.
    Always,
    Mostly Lisa

  14. Awesome idea of sharing your playlist and why. I have an empowerment playlist that includes Christina's Fighter and Destiny's Child Survivor

  15. Awesome idea! I have to recommend a song I just discovered called Happy By Pharrell Williams, that is definitely a song to boost up your Monday morning! Plus the video is to die for ah!

  17. That's so awesome! I may have to add those two songs to my playlist! They always give me a little boost of confidence.

  18. Thanks so much for your sweet words! I definitely need to check out this song. Anything with "happy" in the title is usually a winner!
