Feel This Moment – Christina Aguilera and Pitbull

It’s another edition of Music Mondays, on a Tuesday.

I picked Feel This Moment, by Christina Aguilera and Pitbull, because to me, this song is about being present in the moment, and actually being aware of how far you have came.

I really like listening to this song. It makes me want to dance. For those of you who know me, I love to dance.

“Like a stopwatch, let’s stop time and enjoy this moment, dalé
One day when the light is glowin’
I’ll be in my castle golden
But until the gates are open
I just wanna feel this moment”

-Christina Aguilera and Pitbull, Feel This Moment

Beautiful – Christina Aguilera

It’s another Monday, which means it’s another Music Monday!

The song I have picked is Beautiful by Christina Aguilera. What I love about this song is that it inspires others to not listen to what other people say about them, because everyone is beautiful in their own way. When I was younger, I always admired her voice, and now that I am much older, I can appreciate the message and the meaning even more now.

Another thing that I like about this video, is that she showcases a positive light on several topics before they were first mentioned, like a gothic look, same sex couples. Considering this video came in 2002, it brought forth a lot of recognition of these topics. I appreciate Christina coming forward and bringing awareness that everyone is human, and beautiful. We shouldn’t let others bring us down.

“I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring me down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today”

-Christina Aguilera, Beautiful

Fighter – Christina Aguilera

I always loved this song a lot. It mentions how even though you are going through a challenging time, you shouldn’t totally disregard from your life, because the fights and challenges you are going through right now, is giving you strength to get by in life. We should thank the tough times we are going through. We can’t have a rainbow without a storm.

It really is a powerful song. It really has helped me be thankful for the struggles and overcome so much. She has written several empowering songs for us, so be sure to stay tuned for another Music Mondays featuring a Christina Aguilera song.

“‘Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter”

-Christina Aguilera, Fighter
