  1. I love these lyrics from Kelly Clarkson’s song:

    “You know the bed feels warmer
    Sleeping here alone,
    You know I dream in color,
    And do the things I want.”

    Since the age of 21, I’ve only lived without a man for about a year. It was one of the best times of my life. I chose my own apartment based on my needs, did what I wanted to do on the weekends (trying to avoid dating as much as possible), picked out the movies I wanted to watch and chose the food that *I* wanted to eat. But wouldn’t you know, I had to go and mess it all up by getting involved again and repeating the same mistakes.

    Have you mentioned the original version of Gloria Gaynor’s classic, “I Will Survive”? That’s my all-time favorite, and I listened to it repeatedly after a painful break-up!

  2. Jewels, I love the idea of posting songs that we can relate to and songs that make us stronger. Music has helped me so much during this difficult time. I have a few suggestions for you.
    Forgive by Rebecca Lynn Howard
    Good As I Was To You by Lorrie Morgan
    You Were Mine by The Dixie Chicks
    Lock Stock and Teardrops by k.d. lang
    Sacrifice by Elton John

    When I was in DivorceCare, a couple of us realized we all had sort of adopted “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor as our theme songs. I used to drive around playing that super loud and singing along.

    1. THANKS EVERYONE!! Love the suggestions, keep them coming. I will post I will Survive on Sunday. It has been mentioned several times, more to come!!
