I’m starting a new series I’m really excited about called Musical Motivation where I’ll share songs that are motivating and speak to us as single mommas. Music is so powerful. It can completely change your mood, feel like it was written just for you, make you show off your crazy dance moves in public and push you to run mile after mile. The songs I share will be an eclectic grouping, some Christian and some far from it (but that still have a really good message). I would love for you to leave a comment on how you relate to these songs and if they are motivating to you as well.
We are going back to the early 2000’s for this one. I am a 2000’s girl through and through! Oh the music, the fashion (bellbottoms and butterfly clips for me) and the super cool flip phones. I was huge fan of Usher, N’Snyc, and my girl Christina Agulara. I have a Girl Power Playlist and she’s still rocking on it so many years later. Her song Fighter is the ultimate girl power anthem for us ladies who have been through some sh*t. If you are a single mom then YOU ARE A FIGHTER and it’s good to remind yourself of that once in a while. Never forget how brave, strong and capable you are. As Christina says in her song…
“If it wasn’t for all that you tried to do, I wouldn’t know just how capable I am to pull through, so I just want to say thank you cause it … makes me that much stronger, makes me work a little bit harder, it makes me that much wiser. So thanks for making me a fighter. Made me learn a little bit faster, made my skin a little thicker, makes me that much stronger. So thanks for making me a fighter.
This is so true for us ladies. As single moms we have been through some hard stuff, but it has made us stronger and wiser. When we can see our situation through this lens it is powerful. We go from victim to victor, from weak to winner, and from damsel in distress to the Queen. Yaaaas! It is so empowering. We can even go as far as to thank God for our struggles because we know we are better because of them.
So next time you’re feeling down take a listen to Fighter and remember how strong you really are.
