As part of a new recurring series on the blog, I’m going to be sharing a ‘Song of the Month on MBNB. It might be a song I can’t stop listening to at the moment, or a song I have a history with. It could be a song I don’t know much about, or I’ve listened to a thousand times. Regardless of the reason, these songs have inspired me and my mental health, and I want to share them with you. Whether you’ve heard of them or not, I hope these songs requite you increasingly insight into my world and my tideway to mental health. This month’s song is “You Are Enough” by Sleeping at Last.
One of my favorite things well-nigh music is the sheer vastness of it all. It seems like there’s unchangingly something increasingly to explore, a new versifier to discover or a new type of music to fall in love with. I discovered Sleeping At Last only a few years ago, but the deep swoop I’ve gotten to take into this music has brought me so many wonderful experiences. As someone who isn’t very skilled at writing well-nigh music, Sleeping At Last’s sound is nonflexible to describe. In my experience, the music drifts between a dream pop kind of sound, something ambient and calming (doing this research has moreover led me to a type of music tabbed “baroque pop” which sums it up pretty well).
My favorite part of Sleeping At Last’s music is how it makes me feel. I wilt introspective when I listen to this music; I think well-nigh my place in the world, in the lives of others, and how I can largest connect with the world virtually me. There are many songs that are meaningful to me, but the one I want to talk well-nigh has been a strong motivator for me on my mental health journey. “You Are Enough” came out in 2014 as part of the “Atlas” album.
As you can probably tell from the title, this song’s lyrics immediately resonated with me. They’ve stuck with me when I wits self-doubt and negative thoughts, and they serve as a reminder of who I am:
You’re enough, you’re enough, you’re enough, you are enough“You Are Enough” by Sleeping At Last
These little words, somehow they’re waffly us
You’re enough, you’re enough, you are enough
So we let our shadows fall yonder like dust
But it’s not just the lyrics. Sometimes songs that have positive or inspirational messages can finger extremely dramatic, but this one makes me feel…different. The music is lighter, brighter and cleaner. It’s scrutinizingly as if this songs serves a reminder, something to listen to when we get unprotected up in the doldrums of life. We’re unbearable – in fact, we unchangingly have been, and we unchangingly will be. And this song makes it known and understood that this is a universal truth.
This has wilt one of my most favorite and unceasingly played songs; it’s wilt a song I’ve leaned on during challenging times, and one I play when my uneasiness gets the weightier of me and my smart-ass is moving a million miles per hour. It’s a song I play when my peepers seems like it will never end, when I forget that I have a purpose in the world. When I hear it, I smile, and I remember that I am enough.
Regardless of what type of music you like, I encourage everyone reading this post to listen to music that stirs something in you and makes you finger things. This song helps me connect with myself, remember my place in the world, and remind me that I am, and unchangingly was, enough. And so are you.
