Music is Oxygen, Short Stories

My survival song

Four years ago, this was the one song I played on a continuous loop. It was and still is my survival song. I survived abuse, fleeing for my safety, several relocations and then starting over from scratch.

As I look back,  I say with a full heart of triumph that I not only survived but now I also thrive. But it was not by my own will, it was because the Hurt met the Healer.

The Healer gave me the strength to push,  dig deep,  trust,  feel,  and finally live again. A part of me has died,  but like the Phoenix I rise again because of the Healer.

Perhaps you too have a survival story.
Perhaps you also have a survival song.
Perhaps your Hurt was also met by the Healer.
Perhaps you now thrive, rising like a Phoenix from the ashes.

Rise my fearless ones.
Rise for better.
Rise for truth.
Rise for justice.
Rise because the best revenge against adversity is to thrive.

This is my survival song. Enjoy 🌷

Hugs,
A.

    1. Yes. When I first heard that song it spoke to me very deeply. I came across it on klove.com as well as many other artists I’d never heard before. The music they play on that station is very uplifting and helped me reconnect with myself and develop a better relationship with God. I still have a long way to go in terms of studying God’s word etc., but I’m reading the Bible and learning more about the essence who He is and what I would like my life to be with Him in it. Glad you’re listening to the song. Hope it becomes special to you too.

  1. I’ve not a survival song, but have survived. However I have a song that speaks as if from the damaged child I once was. The description within the song of others noticing but doing nothing is particularly true.
    I do love ‘fight song’ but it is this song, ‘concrete angel’ which reminds me of what once I felt and makes me proud I’ve come so far.

    1. Wow. I listened/watched and it brought tears to my eyes. You survived and you are thriving. Proud of you and yet sad because of those who saw and did nothing. Thanks for sharing your story. Hugs.
      Happy weekend to you and yours 🌷
