My Anthem For This Season of My Life

  

When I first heard this song it hit me to my core.  I instantly downloaded it.  The beautiful thing about music is it speaks to your soul and one song can mean different things to everyone.  Music can have the ability to change your emotions, in any direction.  This song gives me courage to press on, to not lose Hope and to remind myself how strong I am.  

Here’s the video of FIGHT SONG by Rachel Platten

The Lyrics 

Words in italics are what the lyrics means for me 

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word

Can make a heart open 

(a friends words spoken at the right time has been at times just what was needed to press on) 

I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion

And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight

Can you hear my voice this time

(I’ve never been good at speaking up and saying what’s on my mind or what I need but I think it’s time for a change because holding it in isn’t good for my health) 

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
(Starting right now) I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes

‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

(Somehow being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and all the other things going on in my life have reignited my inner flame to fight for my life and for what I believe is right.)

Losing friends and I’m chasing sleep

(I rarely get a good nights sleep and since changing my lifestyle to a more holistic approach some friends have backed away and oddly enough that fine with me.  I don’t need people dragging me down when I’m fighting for my health)

Everybody’s worried about me
In too deep

Say I’m in too deep (I’m in too deep)

(People find holistic living to be strange and Paleo as a fad or a not healthy (hilarious!) they try to tell me I should just take a pill. No thanks) 

And it’s been two years
I miss my home

But there’s a fire burning in my bones

(Odd that it’s been two years that I think Hashimotos was triggered and life spiraled out of control for awhile) 

And I still believe
Yeah I still believe

And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
(Starting right now) I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

A lot of fight left in me

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
(Starting right now) I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

Now I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me


(I’ve got plenty of fight left in me and the fire in my bones….that’s the Holy Spirit leading me on. With God all things are possible) 

  

It’s sad that when someone is having a bad day and struggling with their health or anything really, they try to talk to a friend and some friends just aren’t there for you anymore.  Going through tough times can really show true where friendships lie.
