The Rita Wilson Song That Helps Me Deal With My Chronic Illness

At different stages of my life, different songs have served as personal anthems. They are theme songs; songs that seem to say exactly what I need to hear. Songs that seem to fit me and my situation so perfectly I can almost convince myself the artist wrote the song just for me.

Generally, they are the songs that get you moving. The songs that put a smile on your face. The songs that make you believe everything may not be OK, but that’s still OK. The songs that motivate and inspire and uplift.

Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song.”

Sara Bareilles’s  “Brave.”

Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).”

Katy Perry’s “Roar.”
