I have been on kind of a self-esteem and confidence boosting kick lately! And it continues…I was watching Sesame Street today, well I guess I should say that my kids were watching Sesame Street and they played a video that I thought was so inspiring! It is called “Count Me In” and it is on the subject of believing in yourself. Not only is it a catchy song, but it shows a very diverse group of people with diverse interests and has a great message to boot.
I added a couple more videos on this theme from Sesame Street and some of their lyrics. My daughter and I watch the videos from Sesame Street all of the time! That show constantly impresses me and here are a few examples of why….Enjoy!
“Count Me In”
“I am special
I can win
so count me in”
“What I am” By Will.i.am
“Oh! I’m a keep my head up high
Keep on reaching high
Never gonna quit
I’ll be getting stronger.”
“I am Special” By Grover
“I am special
There is no one just like me
no one that has ever been
no one that will ever be
it is the same for you
you are special as can be
you are important, that is right
you are special”
“Don’t Give Up” By Bruno Mars
“Don’t give up… Keep on tryin’
You’re gonna make it, I aint lyin’
Don’t give up, don’t ever quit..
Try and try and you can do it..”
My ABSOLUTE PERSONAL FAVORITE….CHANGE THE WORLD
This song teaches little girls that they can be whatever they want when they grow up. It also introduces them to different careers and their duties. The song is sung by the same singer as “I love my hair” which is another one of my favorites. I love the message of the song and expressions on the puppets faces!
“You know I’m a girl
whose gonna change the world
when I grow up, oh what can I be?
well take a look and see
I’m gonna be the best me that I can be
you know I can change the world”
