Mundane Monday Morning Music: Des’ree – “You Gotta Be”
A bit (which means a lot) of inspiration is the order of the day today. It was an interesting weekend that made me process a lot of things, making me push all of the things on my “to-do list” to today.
I am so happy I have this week’s MMMM pick to give me some guidance and a much needed pick-me-up to my spirit. I’ve selected Des’ree’s “You Gotta Be” to get me back on track for the day and for the week. This song always pops into my life when I need it. It has always given me the strength to accomplish what I needed to do, face up to my fears, and has given me the push to always strive to be better than I was yesterday.
Check out the first verse to see what I mean. It is some of the best advice I have ever heard:
“Listen as your day unfolds, challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears, stand up and be counted
Don’t be ashamed to cry”
This song is like that friend who is always with me in my darkest hours. When it finds me, I am able to breathe again. Almost 20 years later, “You Gotta Be”is still relevant, and is such a great song I have on the soundtrack of my life. I am forever grateful that this song exists.
I hope that “You Gotta Be” gives you the push you need to get up and slay any dragons this mundane Monday morning may put in your path.
Until my next post, Readers!
