Music Monday: “My Dream” – Nesbeth

Having a bad case of the Mondays? Watch this – it’s one of the most uplifting music videos I’ve seen in a while. Nesbeth has a big fat smile on his face the whole time!

“My Dream” is reggae artist Nesbeth‘s breakout single. The sheer number of excellent musicians that come out of Jamaica still astonishes me. The song is all about overcoming people’s criticisms of you and realizing your dreams. It’s about not putting yourself in a “box like a rectangle.”

It’s about celebrating the wins in your life, which I find really inspiring as a Peace Corps Volunteer. One of our unofficial mottos in Peace Corps Jamaica is “celebrate the small wins,” as in, not everything that represents success in your life or service will be enormous. The little things add up to big things; it’s all about staying positive and shifting your perspective.

So please enjoy this song! Have a dance party at your desk or on your way to work. Celebrate your small wins. Stay true to your dreams.
