Kelly Clarkson had a song a few years back called Stronger. I like to call it my fight song now. Each of us have our own battles in life regardless of race, sex, religion, age, it is how we face those battles(challenges) that defines our character. Do you cringe in the corner with a coloring book saying boo hoo things did not happen as I wanted? Do you cower in fear of living? Do you look for the learning experience in each situation? Do you blame others? Do you face everybody with anger because you feel that you were some how entitled to something that you did not get>
Below I will be discussing these lyrics and how they helped me through many life situations.
"What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger)"

You know the bed feels warmer
Sleeping here alone
You know I dream in colour
And do the things I want( I have had 2 previous marriages when I was left alone for another. Dream in color and move on. They did. Define you goals. Set your steps to reach the goals, one at a time. DO NOT sit in grief and anger. It will eat your soul and your time on earth.)

You think you got the best of me
Think you've had the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I'd come running back
Baby you don't know me, cause you're dead wrong
( when you feel something or someone in your life has gotten the best of you, get up, get dressed, get moving. Before my dad died, he wondered if I would make it in life. When in school they taunted me because I did not fit in with those in high school I had classes with, because I lived on the wrong side of town. BUT, I knew my intelligence and my lord would get me there. I got my degree and was a nurse for over 40 years. )

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone( living in a physically abusive home with an overstrict disciplinarian, being bullied by those who did not know or care, did not keep me from growing up and having a desire to succeed. I learned that I walked to a beat of a different drummer and did not need to follow the crowd. With each accomplishment I stood taller. It does not mean that you are over because no one nurtures you.)

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone( I have learned that I am never alone and HE is always with me. I have a strong supportive husband. I have one or two deep friends and a sister I love dearly. I lost my only child and my best friend 6 years ago, and I still feel his presence and encouragement in my life.)

You heard that I was starting over with someone new
They told you I was moving on over you
You didn't think that I'd come back
I'd come back swinging
You try to break me, but you see( with each episode of rejection by schoolmates, by not being able to please a perfectionist dad, by exiting partners, by being rejected for promotion, etc. I did get over it. I did come back swinging. You cannot break me. I am a child of God and as long as he is on my side I will walk tall a and proud.)

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone ( survive each set back, learned from it, explore the whys, eliminate the negatives about yourself, move forward and grow from the experience and ask HIM for discernment.)

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone( November 6, 2016, I left part of my body on the driveway and spent 3 months in the hospital. I was at my lowest emotionally and started to have a big pity part. A wiseWhat doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone( November 6, 2016, I left part of my body on the driveway and spent 3 months in the hospital. I was at my lowest emotionally and started to have a big pity party. A wise woman shook me up by saying, you make the decision if you will walk again, and no one else on earth. God had let me live. He had let me keep my leg. He was not through with me.)

Thanks to you I got a new thing started
Thanks to you I'm not the broken-hearted
Thanks to you I'm finally thinking about me
You know in the end the day you left was just my beginning
In the end...I yes thanks to all these adversities, I grew in CHARACTER. I LEARNED WHO I WAS AND WHAT I WAS CAPABLE OF WITH HIS ABIDING LOVE AND STRENGTH. )

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone( JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING OR SOMEONE YOU HOLD DEARLY LEAVES YOUR LIFE OR IS NOT WITHIN YOUR GRASP. KEEP FIGHTING, THE REWARDS WILL BE GREATER THAN YOU CAN EVER IMAGINE.)

[2x]
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

(When I'm alone) (YOU ARE NEVER ALONE. THE ONLY REASON TO HIT YOUR KNEES IS TO PRAY FOR THAT HEALING STRENGTH TO COVER YOUR WOUNDS. QUIT BLAMING OTHERS, REACH OUT AND GRASP HIS LOVE THAT IS EVERPRESENT. WALK IN HIS LIGHT OF DISCERNMENT OF WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG, AND LISTEN FOR HIS DIRECTION, FOR IT WILL COME.)
