“You can mourn but don’t let it take you out, Even if it gets hard. Even if it gets hard.”
I heard today’s Inspirational Jam on a show somewhere, I’m sure, but it’s a beautiful one that I want to share!
Indie-folk band Folly & The Hunter‘s track, “Lose That Light,” is an encouraging song for those feeling down and out after going through bad circumstances. Many of us have or are presently going through battles that nobody knows nothing about, and it affects everyone in different ways. I think it’s important, especially with people taking their lives over internal battles that they often kept hidden from a lot of people.
Please don’t lose yourself in temporary pain and heartache. Don’t allow your circumstances to take away the light and love you have to give. Reach out for help and encouragement from those you trust. If you need to, even call hotlines for help. Don’t suffer alone. I hope this song encourages someone today.
“And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?”
I love “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten (so did literally a lot of the world)!
I can imagine that this song is a personal one for Rachel, who co-wrote the track. The road to being an artist isn’t an easy one, and she probably had some people in her life who told her to turn back or maybe labels and executives that told her singing wasn’t for her. Rachel might’ve blown up seemingly overnight when this song was released in 2015, but she’s been singing and working as an indie artist since 2003! That took a LOT of fight in her!
It doesn’t (or I should say, SHOULDN’T) matter if other people believe in you or support your in your dreams. If you know that your dream is meant for you, if you know that there’s a passion or fire in you that won’t go away, it’s your job to go after it wholeheartedly! It’s your job to fight, and to keep fighting until you get to where you want to be!
