Song of the Day – I Didn’t Know My Own Strength by Whitney Houston

Today’s song of the day is I Didn’t Know My Own Strength by Whitney Houston.  Recently, someone close to me said:

“You always find a way to make it through everything that is dumped on you.  No matter what has punched you in the face you find a way to come out on top.  It’s who you are.”

I never really thought of it before, but I am stronger than I realized and more resilient than I ever thought.  No alcoholic person, no homophobic jerk, no ignorant man or woman has ever kept me down for long.  Having a major heart defect and a life expectancy of 16 didn’t stand in my way as is proven by the fact that I am still here a decade later.

2012 has not been an easy year for me or those in my life.  Every month has dropped a new hell on to me and/or those I love.  From the death of loved ones, to illnesses and tragedies every month has been a rough one it seems.  I am sure with a bit of work, drive and hope everything will workout in the end because of the strength I didn’t know I have inside and the strength of those I love.  We will all come out on top in the end.
