Hello wonderful ladies!! :) I hope that your past week as been good! And even if it’s been a struggle, you are strong and will have better days! We all will! We will all have better days, where PCOS doesn’t run our lives!
On this note, I’ve decided that I’m going to start giving you guys songs that are inspirational to me and why they are inspirational to me. I have a playlist in my Itunes that is solely inspirational music. Music speaks to me unlike anything else. When I’m down, belting out a good Wicked song is sometimes the best medicine for me!
I heard this song about 3 months ago. It was the opening song of one of the final Glee episodes this season. And I literally started crying while the song was playing. The only thing that kept going through my head was “This is my PCOS mantra, this is my song.” And to this day, three months later, I listen to this song often, especially when I feel like PCOS is becoming too much to handle.
So now the name, “I Won’t Give Up.” It was originally done by Jason Mraz but I love Glee’s version way more!! Here is a link to the song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJ7NkBWO3jc
This song means so much to me. Yes, it is technically a love song from a boy to a girl, but as played in Glee and how I look at it, it is a song of love to yourself, and the relationship between body and soul. The line that speaks most to me in this song is “I don’t want to be someone who walks away so easily I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make.” It is easy to choose to walk away from PCOS. Making the choice to take control of your life is hard. So much work has to go into conquering PCOS, but I don’t want to be that person. I don’t want to take the easy road. I want to make a difference in my life. I want to make the changes I need to in order to make my life better for good.
Another line that really speaks to me “And when you’re needing your space, to do some navigating, I’ll be here patiently waiting, to see what you find.” There will come times when you’ll want to take a break from thinking about PCOS, almost just forget it exists. This happens for me. And its ok to allow this to happen. During this time, we may forget about our diet, forget to workout, but no matter what our body will wait for us to come back. Our body will wait to see what we discover about ourselves. During these times is when we potentially discover most about our soul.
I listen to this song when I need a reminder that I won’t give up. I won’t give up on myself and my body. I won’t give up on my future and my happiness. I deserve it all. We all deserve happiness. We all deserve freedom from PCOS. We all deserve healthy bodies. And we all can achieve this!
Keep going awesome ladies! You guys are so inspirational to me! <3
