Week 9 – Whatever Makes You Happy

It seems like every time I browse social media these days I see one of *those* posts. You know the ones. They say things like "Write that novel! Launch that business! Work on your side hustle! Take that course!" Because we're in this time of coronavirus lockdown and allegedly people now have all this "free" [...]

Week 8 – Blame It On The Juice

True Talk: It's tough getting back into the swing of things after taking time off for maternity leave! Last year I started using my “Keep In Touch” days to start discovering what it would feel like to get back to work again very slowly and with very trusted clients. I was so nervous. Nervous [...]

Week 7 – Nothing Compares 2 U

I remember the first time I saw the music video for "Nothing Compares 2U". I must have been 12.  I think it was the first time I had ever felt a song in my toes. I couldn't look away. Something about it is haunting. Intense. It takes your breath away. I remember being transfixed. [...]

Week 6 – U Can’t Touch This

Let me tell you about a time where I felt absolutely, totally, untouchably cool. A couple years ago at a friend's wedding "U Can't Touch This" came on (what an epic DJ!) and something came over me. I was on the far end of the dance floor, and the next thing you know I [...]

Week 5 – 24K Magic

This week’s Musical Motivation Monday is Bruno Mars’ 24k Magic. I can’t believe this Grammy award winning song was released in 2016 - it seems like just yesterday.  When it was first released I played it all the time because I have always loved big band music. It’s part of the reason why I love [...]

Week 4 – Overnight Success

You probably thought “What a throwback!” when you saw this week's Musical Motivation Monday from Gladys Knight, but it just goes to show that I really do have an eclectic taste in music. This is a song I grew up listening to. When I hear it, it makes me think of relaxing Sundays at [...]

Week 3 – Ridin’ Solo

This week's Monday Motivation is from Jason Derulo. It's a song I never play in the classroom because I didn't download the radio edit, and the word "sh*t" features quite a lot. Oops! It's a song about getting over a breakup, finding who you are again, pulling yourself together and moving from strength to strength. [...]

Week 2 – We Not Giving Up!

I'm making today's post from my childhood home, in San Fernando, in Trinidad. I'm here having a bit of a vacation and relaxation and to see my friends and family. In honour of my location today's Musical Motivation Monday is going to have some Trinidadian flavour. Soca music is part of Caribbean culture. The soca [...]

Week 1 – How Far I’ll Go

First up on Musical Mondays is one of my favourite songs. It might surprise you. I love Disney movies, and of the recent releases, Moana is one of my favourites. I get goosebumps in the big scene where she gives back the heart of Te Fiti. I love the entire soundtrack, but the song that [...]
