Tune into Motivation

Who doesn’t love a good session with your favorite bands? My session usually involves riding in my car with music blaring through the speakers, while I try secretly to sing along. Meaningful and motivational lyrics always strike me, and I’ve learned along the way that many of my emotions are tied to them. The song below is about a love gone wrong, but I think it can be used as the fight song for resiliency in other areas of your life, too.

Christina Aguilera’s song “Fighter”

‘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 bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

It’s inspirational to me because the songwriter wants to say ‘thank you’ to the person who did her wrong. We should all be thankful for the relationships, situations, and life experiences that make us fighters; I believe they have been brought to us for a reason. Maybe we had something to learn; maybe it will prepare us for the next opportunity; maybe it will show us what a relationship is supposed to be.

What is your motivational song, lyric, or poem? What song or activity inspires you?
