When you’re in the middle of an awful situation–whether it’s emotional, financial, mental or some combination of the three–you don’t think you’re going to survive. It feels endless and hopeless. Each day is a trial. You start negotiating with yourself “If I can just get through this, I’ll be okay”.
It’s during those moments when we realize just how strong we actually are. When I was deep in debt, barely able to feed myself and my husband, I thought it would break me. I thought that there was no way I was going to have the strength to come out the other side. I promised myself that if I did survive those times, I would never ever go back.
I wished that I’d had a song to kind of use as my anthem. Rodney Atkins’s “If You’re Going Through Hell” helped as did Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle“. And strangely, so did Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds”. Now, I have a new song to help me through new challenges. That song, today’s Money Tune, is The Art of Dying’s “Get Thru This”.
My favorite lyric? If I can get through this, I can get through anything.
Because that? Is totally what I need right now. I hope it helps you, too. Whatever you’re going through.
