“Like I said before, don’t break your back when you need to do what’s best for you. One thing ya nah gon do is run yourself to the ground, you fool…”
Time for our weekly Inspirational Jam! This one comes from British artist Ashh Blackwood. It’s been a while, but I remember hearing “Nah Gon Do” as a trending sound on Instagram (which, for all of the quirks of IG, it is a great way to get into new artists). It’s a song that resonates because it’s about challenging yourself to do what’s best for your life, especially when you’re in dire need of change.

“When you get nervous, you think being yourself means being unworthy. And it’s hard to love with a heart that’s hurting…But if you want to go out dancing, I know a place.”
Indie pop band MUNA provides today’s Inspirational Jam, “I Know A Place!” I am just hearing this 2017 track, but it’s a special one to me already.
The song acknowledges that trauma and pain from life can make you want to retreat and also makes it hard to show love to other people. However, it also encourages those who are hurting or not feeling worthy to find support and comfort in the ones that love them, even if it’s a select few.

“Shutting out noise that distracts attention…getting close to my own intention. And hear her speaking, ‘You got only one life.'”
Sharing this Inspirational Jam that I heard on a TV show from singer MOR! Her vocals on “Own This Life” are soothing, but the track is also encouragement to live your best life while you still have it.

“I mean really when I look in the mirror and see everything clearer…I am happy that I’m nobody else…”
Today’s Inspirational Jam is from singer Em Beihold. I’m not sure where I first heard “Nobody Else,” but it’s certainly a song that has been on repeat for me recently. I’ve definitely been in my own head and doubting myself lately on some things. This song is for those of us who are going through that right now. I hope that this song reminds you that we are unique and have something to offer this world.

“Many things about tomorrow, I don’t seem to understand. But I know who holds tomorrow and I know who holds my hand…”
This is a personal Inspirational Jam for me today, but I hope it encourages someone. Kelly Price‘s version of the gospel track, “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow” has soothed my soul from the time I was a pre-teen in the 2000s up to this very day. Especially in moments when I feel so unsure of what was ahead for me in life.
