I have listened to different forms of this song during other difficult times. Not all the lyrics are what I can relate to each time, but the phrase "I'm A Survivor" is definitely one that sticks with me and can usually bring me out of my funk .... not always, but usually.
As I listen to all these empowering songs, I run. I have taken to running one to three miles everyday. I don't always run the entire way, but I am getting stronger and more capable with each mile that my feet hit the street. And, as I run and listen to my playlists, I listen to the messages within the songs. Each of these songs are truly short stories in and of themselves. So, despite the fact that my reading has decreased, my love for a good story has not, especially for ones that bring me strength and hope.
I love stories in all forms, and right now, they happen to be told through music and I listen to them over and over and over again.
YOUR TURN: What are the songs that you have found to be the most inspiring and empowering during the difficult times?
