To continue with remembering the activities which have helped me get through this not so great week. I’m linking up today for Five on Friday.
I’ve mentioned before that I love music and have music playing most of the time. In the future I plan another post about the significance of music. But for today, I’m listing the Five songs that helped pull me from my funk…
1.Stand by Lenny Kravitz
Yes, I had it on replay for about half and hour
“Don’t give up, you’re going to see tomorrow then you’ll be on your feet again.”
“Stand, Up again. Come on Stand. Stand you’re going to run again.”
The words are inspiring and the music MAKES you want to move.
2. A tie between Catch My Breath and Stronger – Kelly Clarkson
This is a great running song for me and once again the words are significant for me.
“Catching my breath, letting it go, turning my check for the sake of the show.”
“No one can hold me back, don’t have time for that.”
“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Not much else to add!
3. See You Again – Carrie Underwood
Yes, there is the potential that this song could you make one cry. However, for me it brings me comfort. Gives me hope. I will be able to see my Mom and Nanny again.
“I said good bye, turned around and you were gone, gone, gone. Faded into the setting sun. I won’t cry because I know I will never be lonely. You are the stars to me, you are the light I follow.
I will see you again, I will carry you with me.”
4. Titanium – David Guetta & Sia
I’m not crazy about this video but basically, this song has become my Theme song over the past year.
“You shoot me down, but I get up. I’m bullet proof, Nothing to lose. Fire Away, Fire Away. You shoot me down, but I won’t fall. I am Titanium.”
There were so many days when I felt like life just kept hitting me with something else. This song reminded me that I can withstand whatever is put in front of me. This is the first song on my driving playlist. Also a great running song.
5. The Fighter (featuring Ryan Tedder) – Gym Class Heroes
” If you fall, pick yourself up off the floor and when your bones can’t take anymore, remember what you’re here for.
“There goes a fighter, there goes a fighter, here comes a fighter, that’s what they say to me – this one’s a fighter”
Sometimes, you just have to fight through the bad stuff and this song helped me to get through all of those days in the past year.
As you can see, my music taste goes all over the place and I’ve found each genre does something different for me.
I encourage you to think about the songs that help you get through the day, or are significant to you.
Have a great weekend!!!
