Inspirational Jam: “Be Alright”-Ariana Grande

“Baby, don’t you know
All them tears gon’ come and go
Baby, you just gotta make up your mind
That everything little thing is gonna be alright”

                                      –Ariana Grande (“Be Alright”)

I got hit with some not so pleasant news this week that kind of threw me for a loop for a second. However, my mental game is so much stronger than it used to be. Now when I miss out on things or face rejection, I look at it truly as it just wasn’t meant for me. I dust myself off, believing that everything is going to be fine in the end.

That’s why I love “Be Alright” by Ariana Grande. The song is a reminder that, no matter what I’m facing, everything is going to work itself out. My dad is always telling me an old adage he would hear from my Nana: “Into each life, a little rain must fall.” But the good news is that the storms don’t last forever. The tears will come and go. You have to know that, whatever you’re going through, things are going to work out for your good. Move with that mentality. Even if you shed a few tears and go through some pain, make up in your mind that you’re going to keep going knowing that everything is going to be alright.

Inspirational Jam: “Be Alright”-Kehlani

“Someone told me, ‘Babe when the tide gets high, you just get low
Hold your breath and take it slow.’
Yes I might get wet, I might get thrown
But I’ll resurface all on my own.”

                                             –Kehlani (“Be Alright”)

This song from Kehlani is actually one of my favorites from her! I’m going to see her perform tonight, so I thought it would be fitting to feature her for today’s Inspirational Jam.

Be Alright” is featured on Kehlani’s second mixtape, You Should Be Here, and always brings me encouragement. The music itself, along with her voice, is so calm and soothing, but it’s the lyrics that get me every time. The gist of the song is that life will hit you with all kinds of craziness, much like waves hitting you as you hit the water at the beach. What’s most important is that you resurface, and come up stronger afterwards.

Please know, whatever you’re going through, you’re gonna be alright! 

Take a listen to the song below!
