Here’s some musical inspiration to go along with turning a new leaf and starting over in the New Year, whether it be making a clean break and doing something totally new, or living through fresh eyes and a new perspective.
This is one in an occasional series of playlists. You can watch/listen to all of them here.
1. James Bay, “Let It Go”
“Everything that’s broke, leave it to the breeze,” Bay croons. Good advice.
2. Needtobreathe “Something Beautiful”
“Consume me like a fire, ’cause I just want something beautiful to touch me.” New opportunity, prosperity, passion perhaps?
3. Lindsey Stirling and Lzzy Hale, “Shatter Me”
“If I break the glass, then I’ll have to fly.” Desire for newness is not enough for a breakthrough. It takes a commitment to journey into the unknown. Hale’s vocals certainly soar.
4. Sheppard, “Geronimo”
“Dive into the waterfall,” and surrender to the flow of limitless possibility that the universe dishes up for us every moment.
5. Eli Young Band, “Dust”
Once you commit, “turn the radio up, the windows down, the pedal to the metal, don’t look back in the rearview mirror.”
6. Gary Allan, “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)”
The journey may not be easy. In the midst of challenges, keep your head up and your mind in check with the right perspective.
