Inspirational Jam: “Anymore”-Alex Vaughn

“I’m trying to get this money…let’s go and get this money. But I can’t do it at this party. I finally decided that things can’t be the same anymore…”

I absolutely love this track from Alex Vaughn and I wanted to use it for this week’s Inspirational Jam!

On “Anymore,” Alex sings about the fact that, with the goals she has for her career, she can’t keep getting distracted by all of these parties or other things that take up too much of her time. She has to put her energy more towards getting better in her craft and growing her career.

#GreatRead: “The Greatest You”-Trent Shelton

Another #GreatRead for the month! This month, I’m sharing motivational speaker Trent Shelton‘s book (written with Lou Aronica), “The Greatest You: Face Reality, Release Negativity, and Live Your Purpose.

I’ve featured some of Trent’s motivational videos on Imperfectly B before and have been watching him for some time now. As he shares in this book, his story hasn’t been without its share of adversity. After playing football for many years, he was eventually signed to the NFL and was cut and rejected by several teams. He tried to keep his love of the game alive, but it just didn’t pan out the way he planned. In the midst of this, he was smoking, drinking, and partying all of the time, among other things, to try to numb the pain. His life was all over the place.

Inspirational Jam: “New Kings”-Danity Kane

“I never cared to dress in what’s expected, yeah, I always wanted to stand apart. I never gave a damn about all your opinions…I just did what’s in my heart…”

Back with another Inspirational Jam for the week. I love featuring great, uplifting music so be sure to hit me up if you know some great songs that should be featured.

With this one today, I was surprised to hear it. To be honest, I thought Danity Kane was officially over but it seems that members Aubrey O’Day and Dawn Richard are pushing on (Shannon Bex is reportedly still a part of the group but working on other projects). Nonetheless, this song “New Kings” is definitely one of my new favorites! Continue reading “Inspirational Jam: “New Kings”-Danity Kane”
