It Starts Off All Cute And Catchy, But Then This Ingrid Michaelson Song Turns Fearless

Do you ever feel like your fears are holding you back from fully living your life? Better question: Is there really anyone who doesn't feel that way at least once in a while?

That's the subject of the catchy Ingrid Michaelson music video below: conquering some of your fears.

Now, I know that a few of these scenes seem a little cheesy (and I'll admit that even the fearless bits are still pretty cute). It's definitely not this easy to conquer your fears, especially some of the more serious ones in here. Even so, it's pretty moving to see people doing all these things they're afraid of. It's a great reminder to live in the moment. 'Cause you and me? We got this. (Sorry, had to. You'll get it.)


Not up for watching the video right now? Here's a little teaser, GIF-style:

The video starts out with Ingrid Michaelson fans being asked to write down what they're afraid of.

Some people are afraid of things that we might think are pretty trivial — like birds! Or even just meeting Ingrid. And as people write what they're afraid of, *spoiler alert!* Ingrid helps them face those fears.

Meanwhile, she also serenades the crowd and reminds us all that we're beautiful and we got this. Of course.

But here's the good part. Buried in there amid the silly fears and cute things, there's some super-deep stuff. This kid at 2:27 has a pretty inspiring and very real message.

And are ya ready for my favorite one? This scene starts at 2:41 and makes me want to give everyone in this video a high-five.

Be sure to head on back up there and take a look at the whole video when you get a chance. It's great, and the song is totally stuck in my head right now (and should definitely be stuck in yours).
