Music Monday "Catch My Breath"

When I first heard this song, I was in the radio and I only heard the chorus before it ended. The chorus is what spoke to me the most and I immediately thought of my friends with CHD and the lung disease called Pulmonary Hypertension  and how we all at points in our life (maybe even daily!) struggle to catch our breaths. 

When I got home, I bought song on iTunes and listened it from start to finish. The very first verse is what spoke to me the most: "I don't wanna be left behind." There are times in my life, as I'm sure in others, that I have felt left behind because of my illness. People would forget that I can't keep up, and they'd run ahead without me. Or I'd miss out on some amazing and fun things that my friends and family did because I was stuck in the hospital. There are times when I have felt left behind and I worry when I'm in the hospital, will I ever be able to make up for lost time? I can't get back all those months spent in a hospital bed away from home, and that is what stinks the most about being "left behind." 

But I think this song can relate to even healthy people. There are times in everyone's life where life gets overwhelming and you have to take a break, catch your breath, and then continue on your way. So here is my advice to you in the words of Kelly Clarkson: catch you breath, no one can hold you back and don't let them get you down. No matter what it is, catch your breath, don't hold back and keep going. 

"Catch My Breath" Kelly Clarkson 

I don't wanna be left behind
 Distance was a friend of mine
Catching breath in a web of lies
Shadowboxing the other half
Learning how to reactI've spent most of my time
Catching my breath, letting it go, turning my cheek for the sake of the show
Now that you know, this is my life, I won't be told it's supposed to be right
Catch my breath, no one can hold me back, I ain't got time for that
Catch my breath, won't let them get me down, it's all so simple now
Addicted to the love I found
Heavy heart, now a weightless cloud
Making time for the ones that count
I'll spend the rest of my timeLaughing hard with the windows down
Leaving footprints all over town
Keeping faith kinda comes around
I'll spent the rest of my life
Catching my breath, letting it go, turning my cheek for the sake of the show
Now that you know, this is my life, I won't be told it's supposed to be right
Catch my breath, no one can hold me back, I ain't got time for that
Catch my breath, won't let them get me down, it's all so simple now 
You helped me see
The beauty in everything
Catching my breath, letting it go, turning my cheek for the sake of the show
Now that you know, this is my life, I won't be told it's supposed to be right
Catching my breath, letting it go, turning my cheek for the sake of this show
Now that you know, this is my life, I won't be told what's supposed to be right
Catch my breath!
Catch my breath, no one can hold me back, I ain't got time for that
Catch my breath, won't let them get me down, it's all so simple now (it's all so simple now!)
Catching my breath, letting it go, turning my cheek for the sake of the show
Now that you know, this is my life, I won't be told it's supposed to be right
Catch my breath, no one can hold me back, I ain't got time for that
Catch my breath, won't let them get me down, it's all so simple now
I've spent most of my life
Riding waves, playing acrobat

Hope and Love,
Becca
