Some days we need inspiration. And usually, music is there for us as a pick-me-up or to act as motivation. With these 15 songs, women are reminded of what’s important.

Music is something that crosses all lines. No matter your gender, sexual orientation, religion, or even skin color, there is something universal about music. And while not all songs are going to appeal to every person, there are some pieces that just tend to speak to people on an emotional level.

Over the years, there have been a lot of songs that offer a message, from talking about life to starting a revolution. And then there are the ones that give us a reminder about life’s important lessons.

Although there are a lot of songs out there that remind us of the important things in life, we are going to focus on the ones that offer life lessons and empowerment mantras for women. Think about these songs as being not just entertaining, but also a reminder of what is important in our lives.

From Broadway to television series and solo tracks, there are any number of places where an inspirational song may come from. Plus, these songs come from any number of genres including pop and country.

With so many different artists and songs to choose from, you may already recognize a song or two. And if you aren’t familiar with one of our choices, then this is your chance to be introduced to a new inspirational (and entertaining) song as well.
