H.E.R. wrote the soulful ode to self-preservation with Russ Chell, Ilsey Juber, and the Take A Daytrip production duo. She told Billboard
the meaning of the track for her is that in hard times, you can still be thankful for the process. "We're always trying to get somewhere, but I think what makes it more special is the journey, and being grateful for strength, being grateful for still moving forward even in times where you're in doubt... knowing no matter what happens," she explained, "I'm still blessed and free."
Brown said the track reminded him of one silver lining during the pandemic: He had a year of watching his baby daughter, Kingsley, grow and start walking. He would have missed many of those moments had he been away from home touring.
