Song of the Week: Cannonball


I haven’t grown tired of this first single for Lea Michele’s album Louder since it was released in December. It not only marked an important time in Michele’s life, having to move forward after losing someone very close to her, but it can easily be an anthem for anybody going through a hard time in their lives. Mourning and grieving and crying for something or someone are always important stages in the event of a loss or hardship. But there also needs to be a moment where you realise that you should make the most of life. Sometimes we hold onto the sadness and the pain because we feel that that is the only way to remember and keep the feeling of that person or thing we have lost in our memory. But memories are meant to be looked back upon fondly and with love and happiness; living your life to the fullest is the way of honouring what you have at that moment and what you have lost in the past. Give yourself time and allow yourself to heal.
