Music Monday - Superbowl Inspired

I decided since yesterday Beyonce and Destiny's Child performed at the Superbowl during half time (and blew a fuse!), I would dive deep into the archives of my iPod and pick a song from Destiny's Child that I have always found inspiring to me. Yes the song is written about how she left her ex-boyfriend and doesn't need him, but there are several verses in the song that I think can apply to more than just that one situation. The song is called Survivor and I have put in bold the versus I think others will find motivating as well. 
"Survivor" by Destiny's Child 
Now  that you're out of my life 
I'm so much better 

You thought that I'd be weak without you 

But I'm stronger 

You thought that I'd be broke without you 

But I'm richer 
You thought that I'd be sad without you 
I laugh harder 

You thought I wouldn't grow without you 

Now I'm wiser 
Though that I'd be helpless without you 
But I'm smarter

You thought that I'd be stressed without you 

But I'm chillin' 
You thought I wouldn't sell without you 
Sold 9 million 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm not goin' give up (What?) 
I'm not goin' stop (What?) 
I'm goin' work harder (What?) 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm goin'na make it (What?) 
I will survive (What?) 
Keep on survivin' (What?) 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm not goin' give up (What?) 
I'm not goin' stop (What?) 
I'm goin' work harder (What?) 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm goin' make it (What?) 
I will survive (What?) 
Keep on survivin' (What?) 

Thought I couldn't breathe without you

I'm inhaling 
You thought I couldn't see without you 
Perfect vision 

You thought I couldn't last without you 

But I'm lastin' 
You thought that I would die without you 
But I'm livin' 

Thought that I would fail without you 

But I'm on top 
Thought it would be over by now 
But it won't stop 

Thought that I would self destruct 

But I'm still here 
Even in my years to come 
I'm still goin' be here 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm not goin' give up (What?) 
I'm not goin' stop (What?) 
I'm goin' work harder (What?) 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm goin'na make it (What?) 
I will survive (What?) 
Keep on survivin' (What?) 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm not goin' give up (What?) 
I'm not goin' stop (What?) 
I'm goin' work harder (What?) 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm goin'na make it (What?) 
I will survive (What?) 
Keep on survivin' (What?) 
I'm wishin' you the best 
Pray that you are blessed 
Bring much success, no stress, and lots of happiness 
(I'm better than that) 

I'm not goin' blast you on the radio 

(I'm better than that) 
I'm not goin' lie on you and your family 
(I'm better than that) 

I'm not goin' hate on you in the magazines 

('m better than that) 
I'm not goin' compromise my Christianity 
(I'm better than that) 

You know I'm not goin' diss you on the internet 

'Cause my mama taught me better than that 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm goin'na make it (What?) 
I will survive (What?) 
Keep on survivin' (What?) 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm not goin' give up (What?) 
I'm not goin' stop (What?) 
I'm goin' work harder (What?) 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm goin' make it (What?) 
I will survive (What?) 
Keep on survivin' (What?) 

Oh (oh) oh (oh)... 


After of all of the darkness and sadness 

Soon comes happiness 
If I surround my self with positive things 
I'll gain prosperity 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm not goin' give up (What?) 
I'm not goin' stop (What?) 
I'm goin' work harder (What?) 

I'm a survivor (What?) 

I'm goin' make it (What?) 
I will survive (What?) 
Keep on survivin' (What?)

Hope and Love,
Becca
