Tuesday’s Tunes: “My Church” by Maren Morris🙏🏼🎼⛪️
Reasons why I love this song:

1. I enjoy singing loud to this song pretending I’m good and ignoring the hard evidence that I’m not🙉

2. It’s about how music can open the heart and hug your soul. It can comfort you and give you new life.🌱

3. People can find faith and inspiration from things unique to themselves–whether it’s religion, music, literature, sports, etc. I think it’s beautiful ✨💕

Song of the Week: “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King 

  
Keeping the soul vibe goin on with this week’s song of the week.

Feels like this song is giving me a warm hug when I listen to it. It’s completing, loving, and a “never gets old” favorite of so many. Whether it’s a significant other, spouse, best friend, sibling, etc..I hope you all feel loved this weekend and know that you’ll always have someone to stand by you when things get dark and stormy. 

Spreading love to you all 😊💕

Song of the Week: “Lost in My Mind” by The Head and the Heart

This is by far one of my favorite songs. I felt a strong connection to it after hearing just the first line. However, my favorite verse in this song is one of my favorite verses from all songs:

Mama once told me
You’re already home where you feel loved
I am lost in my mind
I get lost in my mind

This song kick-started my love for The Head and the Heart and all of their other amazing songs–some of which I’m sure I will share at a later time.

I listen to this song when I’m feeling overwhelmed, sad and lost. But the beautiful thing about this song, is that I also listen to it when I’m feeling content, happy and blissful. There aren’t many songs for me that can capture my heart and mind at both ends of their emotional spectrum.

This song has created for me inspiration in many areas of my life. I more literally get lost in my mind when this song comes on.

Give it a listen. It won’t disappoint.

Song of the Week: “Pursuit of Happiness” Covered by Lissie

I’m on the pursuit of happiness and
I know everything that shines ain’t always gonna be gold
I’ll be fine, I’ll be good

Although I’m a Kid Cudi fan for the most part, I really like Lissie’s  version of this song. Her covers are always pretty awesome.

What gets me most in this song are just the vibes that it sends out. The “I’ll be ok. What will be, will be” kind of vibes.

It’s about living your life to the fullest without worries of what others think and also without worries of what may happen to you the next day, month, year, etc. Now, everything in moderation people. Not saying to go cliff jumping or to go do something illegal and dangerous. Just saying that we can’t live our lives worrying about what may happen next. What we need to do is live in the current moment. To seriously live with a live free type of mentality.

That saying “life isn’t fair” is one of the truest things I’ve ever heard. But even though things won’t always go our way and often life will throw things our way that are less than ideal, we have to get up and embrace life. When life gets rough, we shouldn’t “lay awake in our beds full of sorrow.” We should get ready to face tomorrow.

Things in this life won’t always shine with gold, but we’ll be good once we learn to stop letting those bad things put our life on hold.

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.

 

Song Of The Week: Tell The World by Eric Hutchinson

Tell The World

I got a song and a smile so bright, I’ll make you wish you were here tonight

🎶🌎 Haven’t posted a song in a while, but it seemed only fitting since I’m going to see Eric in concert tonight!!
This song is just so upbeat, as a lot of his songs are. It’s kind of hard to put on this song and not want to dance around a little bit. It also sends out some pretty rockin positive vibes 🤘🏻
