“Spread some love, Don’t give to receive, Strive to be happy, And live to believe.”

I’ve been on a steady Jessie J kick for a while now. Last week I posted a video of her singing Who You Are and got lot’s of positive feedback. It seems some people are still unaware of her and what a talent she is. Here is another video and quote from one of her songs called Stand Up. Say what you want about pop music or top 40 artists but this girl can sing, write and perform like crazy. But better than that she oozes her artistry she doesn’t just sing it, write it, perform it, she makes you feel it. And art that makes you feel is really the only kind worth your time. (I included another video of a song she wrote called Big White Room, if you haven’t seen or heard either I highly recommend you take the time to listen and watch!)

Eyes. They are both amazing, and deceitful. They supposedly help you see everything, but can stop you from authentically experiencing anything.

I leave you with a quote/video from one of my favourite songs, by one of my favourite artists.

Seeing is Deceiving, Dreaming is believing

This is a verse from one of my all time favourite songs by the amazing Joni Mitchell (who happened to grow up only 3 hours from my hometown in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan). The song is called A Case of You , it is beautifully written and Joni delivers it so well with her unique voice and style. I have added the file below and I recommend you take a listen. (This is my favourite verse from the song and holds one of my favourite quotes)

Oh I am a lonely painter

I live in a box of paints

I am frightened by the devil

And I’m drawn to those one that ain’t afraid 

I remember that time you told me, you said,

“Love is touching souls,”

Surely you touched mine

Cause’ part of you pours out of me

In these lines from time to time

A Case of You

Say what you want about her but the girl can sing and write. One of my favourite songs…probably because it’s so honest, it speaks to me 🙂

“I don’t know this could break my heart or save me
Nothing’s real until you let go completely
So here I go with all my thoughts I’ve been saving
So here I go with all my fears weighing on me.”

Sober Music and Lyrics By Kelly Clarkson
