I am not ashamed to admit that I am a huge Christina Aguilera fan. I think she has a voice unlike any other. She is proud of who she is. She stands up for those who often aren’t give a voice. Oh, and her new Spanish Language album is FIRE!!
But her Lotus album featured a song called “Best of Me” and it has been on repeat for me for years.
The holiday season is often hard for many reasons but this song always empowers me.
Here are a few of the lyrics…
“Think I’m steel
Tough as nails
But you’re wrong
So damn wrong
Feel the weight
Of your hate
I still bleed
My heart aches
As you take
And you take
Words cut through my skin
Tears roll down my chin
My walls crumble within
But I’ll take it all on
And get up when I fall
‘Til the last curtain call
But you’ll never get the best of me, no more
Said you’ll never get the best of me, no more
Aren’t you tired of throwing stones
Trying to kick me when I’m down
But you’ll never get the best of me, no you won’t”
So today, don’t let them get the best of you. You are tougher than you know.
