For those of you who have spent time with me or seen some posts from me on Facebook, you will know I don't mind a bit of music. If you have been in my car or house, you will know I like it loud mostly. It inspires me to do many things; cleaning (ugh!), jogging, gym, cooking, driving, coaching, working, being present etc. So as I was driving home from watching some amazing fireworks last night I proudly announced to my 11 year old son (who is currently OVER my current music obsession of electro swing) that this year I was going to have a theme song.
So whilst lying in bed this morning, I picked up my ipod and within the first 10 songs on my ipod I found my theme song: "Always a Winner" by Pete Murray. I imagine that when I walk through doors this year, that song will play (well maybe in my head...) just prior to me walking in the door/room, etc. When I messaged my friend to let her know, she said it inspired her to get a collection together as a soundtrack. I thought "What a great idea!" so I set about creating a playlist on my ipod called 2012. Some tracks I picked because the music is upbeat and inspires me, others I chose because the words are positive and motivating.
Without further ado, here is my 2012 playlist:
1. Always a Winner by Pete Murray
2. Baby, I'm Gettin' Better by Gyroscope
