Just a Woman and Her Will to Survive

I started thinking about all the things God has asked me to do in my life, especially lately. I feel very challenged, very overwhelmed and very ... did I mention challenged.

I'm a sporting gal and I dig a good gauntlet when one worth my time has been thrown down, but come on now, my life lately is starting to feel a bit like American Gladiators meets Survivor. You know your path is taking a different turn when you start to wake up with the 'Eye of the Tiger' in your head and the Christina Aguilar's 'Fighter' as most listened to song in your iPod.

So, I've decided to stop being the booger eatin' kid (not that I now or ever ate my boogers) at school that keeps getting knocked down at the bus stop...heck no momma, I'm gonna get me some street cred., build up my stamina, punch the life out of some pillows and get to it. I've got work to do. I refuse to be beaten. I am a fighter, a champ...I am strong.

Rocky had Mickey. I've got God. I'm gonna take it to a new level and give a new meaning to "you rock". I'm not gonna loose my grip on my dreams. "It's the thrill of the fight and rising up to the challenge of the fight." This is about survival. This is about fortitude. Bring on Apollo Creed! After all, we're all just men and women with our will to survive.

Eye of the Tiger by Survivor
Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds 'til we take to the street
For we kill with the skill to survive


Risin' up, straight to the top
Have the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive


The eye of the tiger (repeats out)...
