Song Of The Week: “I Want It All” by Cam

I want it all
Don’t want no rocking-chair regrets
I got that fire and it’s burning in my chest
Gonna keep on living ’til I hear the last call
And I, I, I want it all

While she isn’t super well-known yet, she’s got such a great voice and songs worthy of performing your own personal concert in your car driving home from work (…guilty).

This song came into my mind as a good song to post on New Years Day because the first day of the year is when most people feel at their peak levels of ambitious, inspired and brave. We adopt a “go getter” attitude and tell ourselves that this year we actually can have it all if we put forth enough effort.

There will always be the nay-sayers who tell you that you’re being overambitious or that you’re just lying to yourself. Well ya know what? Who needs those people?

This song emits the feeling of empowerment. She sings about promising to herself to have no regrets when she’s older and looking back on her life. She’s not going to listen to any people’s doubts or rumors. She’s moving on with her life full steam ahead, and no one will be able to slow her down.

I love the attitude portrayed in this song and it’s an attitude I’m going to adopt as my own this year. It’s an attitude I think everyone should adopt this upcoming new year. I challenge you to keep on living until you hear the last call.I urge you to drown out the doubts and negativity of your peers. You have to accept that sometimes you will lose, but I encourage you to never let your inner fire die down despite that fact.

If you’re gonna go for something, better make it everything.
