“I know people, people
They don’t see the hurt you feel inside
But keep on smiling ’cause everything will be alright…”
—Le’Andria Johnson (“Better Days”)
In my last newsletter, I shared this song from singer Le’Andria Johnson with my email subscribers (Get on the list now for more inspiration and exciting updates!). I first heard it for myself on an episode of Greenleaf on OWN, and it came on a day when I really needed to hear it.
Don’t ever let this inspirational site fool y’all. I really am all about uplifting others, but there are times where frustration, anxiety, and hurt get the best of me. I still have days where I’m really down, don’t know which way to go, and want to throw in the towel. As I’ve written previously, I started Imperfectly B to encourage others, but also to uplift my own self!
So I heard Le’Andria’s song, “Better Days,” when I needed some positive words spoken (or, in this case, sung) to me. This song urges me to keep moving forward, knowing that I will achieve greater things in the future, and that my best days are ahead of me and not behind.
Take a listen below. I hope it encourages you today!
