Ever have a song that just speaks to you? Is it like your anthem? I admit I have such a song, “In The End” by Linkin Park. There is something about that song, I heard it when I was coming to terms with everything happened in marriage was all a joke, that he used me for a green card. As the lyric says, “I got so far and tried so hard, in the end, it didn’t even matter.”
That is what happened to me, no matter how hard I tried, trust me I tried to do everything he wanted. It didn’t matter, in the end, he would leave me because he got what he wanted, he used me for that green card so he can practice medicine. What helped he accept that was that song.
It spoke to the very core to me. In fact, every time I hear it, I always say this my anthem, it helps me realize I was better than him. What is funny, is it came on at work one day on our radio, I burst out into singing it, and I never do that because not professional. That song, it just always wakes me up and I want to sing it, I think because it is the song that speaks to me and I relate to it. Though my co-workers do think it funny that suddenly I am rocking out to this song. It was that song that made me a fan of Linkin Park, so why not rock out to it. In fact, why don’t we all rock out to it now!
Truthfully, if my ex would see me now, no he would not recognize me, just like the song says now. As I said, I am so much better than him now. I, not the meek person he can bully anymore. I am a wonderful, beautiful woman, with talents in many areas. Plus as this blog is growing and becoming popular, I am one hell of a cook and in a way a business woman. This blog is my brand, it a business. So now you know why this song is my anthem, what is your anthem song? I love to know, comment let me know.
After rocking out, time for a cool drink don’t you think? I went to an Amish Farmer’s Market, and they had fresh bags of mint. One caught my eye, apple mint. I never heard this mint, the smell was heavenly. The guy there told me how to make this with a recipe. I decided I want to make it into a sweet tea, I admit I am a sweet tea lover. Fresh, organic, refreshing, natural sweet mint tea, oh is it so refreshing!
