Ik ben een heel positief persoon, maar ook ik word wel eens beïnvloed door negativiteit en scepsis om me heen. Er zijn nu eenmaal altijd mensen die willen dat je een ander pad kiest, die je willen veranderen, die niet in je geloven. En soms zijn het de stemmetjes in je hoofd die je een halt proberen toe te roepen.

Dit wordt geen psychologische post over hoe je daarmee om moet gaan. Maar vandaag wil ik een playlist met je delen die je de kracht geeft om al die negativiteit om te zetten in positiviteit.

Onderaan de pagina kun je doorklikken naar de playlist op Spotify, maar wellicht wil je de liedjes gewoon zelf opzoeken. Daarom volgt hieronder een lijst, met van elk liedje een quote – zodat je kunt zien of de tekst past bij jouw situatie op dit moment. Een aantal liedjes zitten erbij vanwege de perfecte tekst, anderen vanwege de melodie. Soms moet je gewoon even dansen om alles los te laten.

1. My Song – Nashville Cast

“Don’t try to change my melody,
make me dance a different beat,
cause this is where I belong.”

2. Tell Me Something I Don’t Know – Selena Gomez & The Scene

“Everybody tells me that it’s so hard to make it
It’s so hard to break in
There’s no way to fake it

Everybody tells me that it’s wrong what I’m feelin’
And I shouldn’t believe in
The dreams that I’m dreamin’

I hear it every day
I hear it all the time
I’m never gonna amount too much
But they’re never gonna change my mind, no”

3. The Climb – Miley Cyrus

“I can almost see it.
That dream I’m dreaming,
But there’s a voice inside my head saying,
You’ll never reach it.”

4. Looking For A Place To Shine – Nashville Cast

“So baby, get in line,
Cause it’s better to play than sit on the side
I’m thinking, of busting through the door,
Leaving everybody begging for more,
And you know it’s true,
When you’re a girl like me, you got nothing to lose”

5. Kill Em With Kindness – Selena Gomez

“The world can be a nasty place
You know it, I know it, yeah
We don’t have to fall from grace
Put down the weapons you fight with
And kill ‘em with kindness”

6. King Of Anything – Sara Bareilles

“Who cares if you disagree?
You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything?”

7. Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) – Kelly Clarkson

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller”

8. Fight Song – Rachel Platten

“Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion”

9. Just Watch Me – Kate Voegele

“Everybody’s telling me who I ought to be
Who I’m not and where I gotta be
The last thing I need are voices in my head
No, not me
I don’t even know yet who I wanna be
I got miles and miles in front of me
And all that I can see are the mountains up ahead
Won’t let them stop me,
I’m going up, just watch me”

10. Radioactive – Imagine Dragons

“I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive”

11. Roar – Katy Perry

“You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ‘cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar”

12. Unbreakable Heart – Three Days Grace

“They’ll try to take your pride
Try to take your soul
They’ll try to take all the control
They’ll look you in the eyes
Fill you full of lies
Believe me they’re gonna try
So when you’re feeling crazy
And things fall apart
Listen to your head
Remember who you are”

13. Unusual – Kate Voegele

“I don’t wanna be like you
I don’t wanna live by your rules
I don’t wanna try to fit in
To be typical
I’m just gonna be who I am
I just wanna live in a world
In a world where unusual is beautiful”

14. Girl On Fire – Alicia Keys

“She got both feet on the ground
And she’s burning it down
She got her head in the clouds
And she’s not backing down”

15. Love It – Icona Pop ft. Charli XCX

“You want me down on earth,
but I am up in space”

16. Expectations – Three Days Grace

Go to hell”

17. Give Me Everything – Pitbull

“Took my life from negative to positive
I just want y’all know that
And tonight, let’s enjoy life

18. Unwritten – Natasha Bedingfield

“Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten”

19. My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark – Fall Out Boy

“I’m in the de-details with the devil
So now the world can never get me on my level
I just gotta get you off the cage
I’m a young lover’s rage
Gonna need a spark to ignite”

20. Misfit – Amy Studt

“So keep doing what you’re
doing down there
Cause I’ll be flying higher
Waste your own time
I don’t care
Anything you can do, I can do better”


Laat het me weten als je vindt dat er een liedje mist, ik blijf de Spotify playlist bijwerken. En ik blijf dansen! Ik hoop jij ook.
