Whenever I need to light the fire under my own ass, I turn on the remix of Beyonce's ***Flawless. There's 100 percent more Nicki Minaj, and it's 100 percent more awesome. It's a motivational tool!
Listen to these lyrics and tell me you they don't affirm your life's existence:
I wake up lookin' this good,
And I wouldn't change it if I could,
You can say what you want, I'm the shit!
I want everyone to feel like this tonight
(Goddamn, goddamn, goddamn)
And then come the SpottieOttieDpaliscious horns and your heart explodes. You feel good. You are awesome. You rule and you are perfect. I woke up like this? Yeah, in reality, for you, that means looking like garbage with sleep sand in your eyes and your hair a matted mess. But that's exactly the point. Repeat those lyrics again. You've heard this sentiment before. Believe in yourself! You're perfect just the way you are! Everyone's different! It's all the same sentiment. You're flawless. [Flawless.Beyonce.com]
