Music is Magic: Groove Playlist

There is scientific proof that music has a profound impact on our emotions and can spark creativity. Those are just a couple benefits among a long list of others. 

Knowing this doesn’t surprise me at all. If there is something that I need to get done, but the motivation isn’t there, I put on some music and just like magic, the spark to get that mundane activity just shows up. 

So although The Naturally K. Rich blog had been mostly about natural hair and beauty products, you may have noticed, that I started putting more music on the blog here and there and thus my Music is Magic series was born. I just needed to shake things up a bit.  

There’s always the conversation that there isn’t any good music out there. I’ve apparently hit this age where the phrase, “these kids nowadays don’t know what good music is” is now a frequent thought of mine.  

It became a mission of mine to not only find the music that I wanted to hear, but to also find the music that I wanted to write about. There IS good music out there. Some of it is on the radio, but a lot of it isn’t. If you’re willing to do a little proverbial crate digging (record collector here) you’re going to find some pretty incredible stuff. 

The point of this post is to show you some of the gems that I have dug up. I have compiled a list of some of my favorite songs that have been on repeat for a while. There are a lot of songs, so I hope you hear something you love.  Mostly new, sprinkled with some old, and a few tracks dipped in purple (you should know what that means) because the really good jams never go out of style. 

This is by no means a complete list of my all time favorite songs, because believe me, although this list is long, it would’ve been A LOT longer.  I’ll add/edit this list from time to time, letting you know when there is something new. 

I hope you’re all still with me, I know it’s been a while. 

So to motivate you to get up, show up, workout, drive with the windows down, clean the house, dance or just turn down the lights and chill, here is Groove on Spotify. Please enjoy and let me know in the comments or on my social media platforms what you think. 

Have a beautiful day and as always, thank you for reading.


2019…Level Up!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday season surrounded by the ones that you love. I just wanted to pop in for a quick post to start the year off right.

New Year,  BETTER me because I am always on a mission to do better in my life. I lose focus sometimes and I don’t always live it up to my own expectations, but like many of you, I’m trying.

And that’s the whole idea, right? To get to another level in our lives. Improve a little, learn a lot.

I DON’T want to make a list of grand resolutions for 2019 because now I just see those as a list of results without actually taking into account the work that it takes to get those results.

I DO want to be intentional and mindful of the steps that I need to take to achieve my goals.

At the end of every year, we always talk about how fast it went by. So much can be done in those 365 days. Small steps can take us far if we remain focused.

So here’s to a fabulous 2019…we’ve got this!! What are some steps you’re going to take to achieve your goals? Please share. 

As always, I appreciate your continued support. I’m planning for more with Naturally K. Rich…stay tuned!

Thank you for reading!
