I was absolutely delighted to be nominated for this by The Blogging Detective – thank you so much!
When times have been tough quotes and music have sustained me. From Winston Churchill ‘When you’re going through Hell, keep going’ to Billy Ocean ‘When the going gets tough, the tough get going’.
One of the songs that gave me courage and determination to keep going with grace was Labi Siffre – Something Inside So Strong
I love this song. I can never hear it without feeling strength and peace. It’s a true anthem of grace led courage.
The higher you build your barriers
The taller I become
The further you take my rights away
The faster I will run
You can deny me, you can decide
To turn your face away
No matter ’cause there’s
Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Though you’re doing me wrong, so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
There’s something inside so strong
