Ok...so it's really not like me to enjoy a Katy Perry song. I fully admit this. But then, I remember, I am also a closet Kelly Clarkson fan, so I guess I'm going to have to re-evaluate myself here.
When 2013 ended and 2014 began, I felt a huge sense of relief. A sense of freedom. 2014 was going to bring me joy - the joy 2013 so mercilessly stole from me. I remember listening to "Roar" back in January and feeling empowered by it.
'Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar"
I will not be defeated. I will not give in to grief or hopelessness. I will stand up against my demons and the lies they tell me and I will believe in life and love. I will believe that Piper will arrive, safe and sound, on Monday.
Because she will.
