Hello my lovelies!
There was no waffling over today's Tunesday pick this week. As soon as I heard Alessia Cara's 'Here,' there was no question in my mind that you guys needed to hear it.
Now, while anyone who has been to a rubbish party or is a bit more on the introvert side of the spectrum will be able to appreciate this song, it will be especially poignant for those who experience [social] anxiety. As she describes the situation and repeatedly questions her presence at the party, the line that sticks out most is:
I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room
How often do we find ourselves in situations where we ask the same thing, "What am I doing here?"
Life is somehow simultaneously too long and too short to waste time doing unedifying things that don't help us enjoy life or positively impact the world.
Hopefully music is one of the things that leaves a smile on your face! Enjoy! (:

Until next time...
