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.
