Happy last day of August, guys! Since this is a Monday and we all know how those can be, I wanted to share some encouragement in song form.
The other day, I came across the song “Keep Your Head Up,” by Andy Grammer on Spotify. I’d heard the song on the radio years ago when it first came out and thought it was catchy, but had never paid much attention to the lyrics. This time, I listened to the lyrics and the meaning of the song really resonated with me.
It’s about keeping things in perspective, not letting negative thoughts get the best of you, and realizing that there is light at the end of the tunnel if you can stay positive. The most important thing we can do when we’re going through a tough time is to keep moving forward and push through and this song reminds me of that. Lately I’ve been stressing out about what my future holds, among other things, so this song has been my jam. It will probably stay stuck in your head for a while but that’s a good thing because we should surround ourselves with as much positivity as we can!
Today I am thankful for music. I’m thankful for its ability to lift our spirits. I’m also thankful for all of the artists who are brave enough to share vulnerability through songwriting and/or their voices.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead filled with positivity and many things to be grateful for!
