“I love the way I took the pain and now it’s working for me…I’m coming back for everything that was taken
For today’s Inspirational Jam, I had to share this track, “Do It Anyway” by hip hop and R&B artist/songwriter Erica Mason. This song, which was released in late 2022, gets me fired up in the morning to tackle my to-do lists so I figured I would share!
“Will you make the sacrifice when you don’t wanna so you can live in paradise like you wanna? But you gotta put that work in if you’re gonna…”
A few weeks ago, I went to a concert to see one of my favorite rising singers, Janine. My fellow Prince George’s County, Maryland native Alex Vaughnwas her opening act. My sister Alexis told me about her before the show and I’m glad to say that I’m a new fan! Today’s Inspirational Jam from her is one of the reasons why.
“Gotta Have It” is a song I listen to pretty much daily now. The song, which gives off a 90s vibe, forces you to ask yourself just how bad you want to make your goals happen. If you really got to have it and can’t stop until it all happens, then you’ll put in the hard work to get it. You’ll make the sacrifices you need to. Even when you don’t want to. Shoot, especially when you don’t want to.
“I make sure everyday that I don’t let nothing hold me back…got to be on track. I gotta move…”
Today’s Inspirational Jam is a ’90s throwback from the one and only Brandy. This song is definitely a forever mood!
On her track, “Movin’ On,” a young Brandy Even then, she knew that, whatever path she chose, she had to do what was right for her. That could be looked at as making the right career decisions, choosing the right friends, and making better choices for your overall life and health.
Almost 25 years later, that message still rings true, and it’s one I’m taking to heart. Whatever or whoever isn’t good for me and my development, my career, my overall life, is getting cut or pushed to the side. I think I’ve done a pretty good job of that at this point, but this song is definitely a great reminder! I hope you all are making good decisions for your own benefit, too. If not, it’s time to start.
