Survivor

This past Monday was International Women’s Day! ❤

I like to celebrate International Women’s Day by sharing my song “Mistreat a Woman…” 🙂  I wrote the song to promote awareness of the different types of violence against women. The song also promotes peacefully working together to defend women’s rights in order to overcome this violence.

In honor of International Women’s Day, I wanted to share a song about women’s strength, and Destiny’s Child’s song “Survivor” came to mind.

Lyrics:
Welcome to the wonderful world of Destiny’s Child
I’m Da Brat-tat-tat, my homeboy Den on the track
And we gon’ lay you flat on yo’ back
When the beat-boom-boom-pat-pat like that, yaheard me?
We comin’ in this game like some survivor’s
And we leavin’ this game like some survivor’s
So from now, until we dead and gone
We gon’ be some survivors, ya heard me?
Beyonce, where you at? Uh!
Now that you’re outta my life, I’m so much better
You thought that I’d be weak without ya, but I’m stronger
You thought that I’d be broke without ya, but I’m richer
You thought that I’d be sad without ya, I love harder
You thought I wouldn’t grow without ya, now I’m wiser!
You thought that I’d be helpless without ya but I’m smarter
You thought that I’d be stressed without ya, but I’m chillin’
You thought I wouldn’t sell without ya, sold nine million
I’m a survivor (what), I’m not gon’ give up (what)
I’m not gon’ stop (what), I’m gon’ work harder (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m gonna make it (what)
I will survive (what), keep on survivin’ (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m not gon’ give up (what)
I’m not gon’ stop (what), I’m gon’ work harder (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m gonna make it (what)
I will survive (what), keep on survivin’ (what)
Wishin’ you the best, pray that you are blessed
Much success, no stress, and lots of happiness
(I’m better than that) I’m not gon’ blast you on the radio
(I’m better than that) I’m not gon’ lie on you and your family, oh
(I’m better than that) I’m not gon’ hate on you in the magazines
(I’m better than that) I’m not gon’ compromise my Christianity
(I’m better than that) you know I’m not gon’ dis you on the internet
‘Cause my momma thought me better than that!
I’m a survivor (what), I’m not gon’ give up (what)
I’m not gon’ stop (what), I’m goin’ work harder (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m gonna make it (what)
I will survive (what), keep on survivin’ (what)
Uh
Now I dun’ been through the storm and the rain
Climbed up the rough side and got tough at times
But I remain, if I got the stuff to shine
And pull out the pump, protect mine
Survive in the game, hate on me ’cause you lame
They don’t ever see your face or say your name
No more pain for me, no more misery, ’cause you history
I’m a hold on to what I got
Strap on to my perfection, strap on protection
My own direction, born to be the best at what I do
I’ma make it through, stompin’ like a soldier in my big black boots
I keep ’em “Jumpin’, Jumpin’, ” stayin’ funky, funky for you
No matter who’s that man that walk out of your life
You don’t need ’em, don’t be no heater
Long as I’m still breathin’, not leavin’ for no reason
Seen them come and go, one switch, they not gold
No house no mo’, not even a condo
As long as I know how to love, I’m a stay alive
No need your game or style
They can’t tame me ’cause I’m wild, not ashamed of stayin’ down
Can the rain sit, and ’em things chromed out, spit
And in my game, no doubt, I’m a get paid in a big way, survivor!
I’m a survivor (what), I’m not gon’ give up (what)
I’m not gon’ stop (what), I’m gon’ work harder (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m gonna make it (what)
I will survive (what), keep on survivin’ (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m not gon’ give up (what)
I’m not gon’ stop (what), I’m gon’ work harder (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m gonna make it (what)
I will survive (what), keep on survivin’ (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m not gon’ give up (what)
I’m not gon’ stop (what), I’m gon’ work harder (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m gonna make it (what)
I will survive (what), keep on survivin’ (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m not gon’ give up (what)
I’m not gon’ stop (what), I’m gon’ work harder (what)
I’m a survivor (what), I’m gonna make it (what)
I will survive (what), keep on survivin’ (what)

I remember feeling so empowered when I would listen to this song when I was growing up. ❤ No matter what I was going through, this song made me feel like I had the strength to get through it.

This song can inspire people in ALL situations. Whether you are trying to move forward after a bad romantic relationship or friendship ends or whether you are faced with a very trying life challenge…like this pandemic, this song can help you feel motivated to keep moving forward. ❤

I have such gratitude knowing more and more people are getting vaccinated every day, and we are closer and closer to seeing an end to this pandemic!

We are all survivors! We can get through this difficult time. ❤ Wishing you well! ❤
