“I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky…”
—Kelly Clarkson (“Breakaway”)
Today’s inspirational jam, Kelly Clarkson‘s “Breakaway,” was my SONG back in the day. From her second album with the same title, and the Princess Diaries 2 soundtrack, this song (and the album) became a big hit for Kelly in the mid 2000s.
I remember being a teen listening to this song on repeat like Kelly was singing my life story. I didn’t know what I was going to be just yet, but, even at that age, I knew that I wanted more for my life than just something mundane. Maybe not be a singing superstar, but, whatever it was that I did, I wanted to be passionate about it. I wanted to breakaway from the norm. I wanted to LIVE, and not just exist. That’s what this song is all about. Taking chances and shooting your shot to reach your big dreams.
