Inspirational Jam: “Four Pink Walls”-Alessia Cara

“I assumed there was only room for my dreams in my dreams, so I’d sleep and repeat ’til the moon went home. And I didn’t know where it’d take me…”

I was reminded of this great song by Alessia Cara while working on a playlist for my sister’s graduation party last night. Had to share it for this week’s Inspirational Jam!

On Alessia’s song “Four Pink Walls,” she sings about how, when she was a kid, she used to stare at the pink walls in her bedroom and dream of a better life. She wanted more for herself, and kind of felt stuck where she was. However, her talent and hard work ultimately opened a door for her to now be a successful, Grammy-winning artist!

I know that dream well. I didn’t have pink walls LOL, but I used to dream of reaching different goals that have finally happened for me. But it wasn’t just because I dreamed big. I put in the work, tears, money, losses, etc. etc. BUT IT EVENTUALLY HAPPENED. So I hope that this song serves as encouragement to someone on the verge of giving up to keep pushing and working, even if the dream doesn’t seem in reach.
