Let It Go by James Bay. What a song with an incredible meaning. It was after a significant and specific point in my life that I heard this song and connected to the lyrics and the melody like I never have before. I started to understand what James Bay means when he talks about being in a relationship (the message can also apply to any other life situation) that you're not happy in anymore and that you feel like you've lost the person you once loved being. It's the saddest, most eye-opening feeling I've felt thus far in my life, and it forced me to realize that no matter where I am or who I'm with, if I'm compromising my beliefs, opinions, and values, and the situation that I'm in has the power to make it hard for me to smile each day and to not doubt everything around me, then I need to get out of that toxic environment. If you feel it in your gut that your job or relationship with a significant other or a friend isn't working, then don't stay in it (because what's the point?), no matter how much your heart is telling you to stay because you feel it's not fair to that person(s) if you leave, or because you believe that you'll be able to fix things until they're okay again; in these situations, listen to that voice in the back of your mind that's telling you to leave; it really is the best thing to do even if you don't see that right away.

Being truly and genuinely happy is so important and we must do whatever we can to feel this way, because our ability to laugh, smile, and enjoy the company of our true selves, as well as our own life, is something we must never take for granted.

Because all of these amazing messages and life lessons this song breathes, I decided to do an acoustic cover of the part of the song that resonated heavily with me. Not only is this song lyrically brilliant and relatable, it's music is calming, healing, and is a perfect song to sit bundled up on the couch with, while sipping hot chocolate/coffee/tea and enjoying the current sweater weather. :)
