Things came full circle for the analytical me this morning - when? When I was doing my workout and “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten came on. For the past two years at Relay for Life, they play this song & the survivors do their lap — it gets me every time — seeing Seth walk bravely around the track, and hearing “I’ve still got a lotta fight left in me.” Powerful & emotional.
I then thought about the conversation I had with my Mom, about how for the first time in my life, I’ve finally found a place where I don’t feel like I’m constantly at the end of my rope, stressed to the max or on the verge of a breakdown - because I’ve learned how to manage what life is throwing at us. Is it easy? Absolutely not. But it’s manageable & doable. I have an amazing husband and son who rely on me & now that I know how to care for myself - I can do that to the best of my ability. So then I can believe the words of this song too... “This is my fight song, take back my life song, prove I’m alright song. My powers turned on, starting right now I’ll be strong, I’ll play my fight song & I don’t really care if nobody else believes, because I still got a lot of fight left in me.” #fightsong #rachelplatten #strength #selfcare #caregiver #growth #loveyourself #family #challenge #anxiety #develop #proud #leukemiaawareness #leukemia #adoption #lovemakesafamily
