What positive affirmations...

...do you use? Mariah Carey's Hero, is simply one of the most beautiful songs ever writen and the message is so inspiring!!!! Mariah sings it flawlessly and I have an intense connection to this song. It's hard now being an adult, living on your own, having to pay your own bills and for me, having to compete for recognition in a large financial services firm...It can get to a person. I wake up every weekday morning and thank god for another day and ask him to give me the strength to overcome the days challenges and thank him for the desire to keep going. I tell myself that I am young and I have alot going for me and I am thankful and aware of people who are fighting far greater fights...

I listen to Hero many times when I get up and is getting dressed for work...during my commute, and maybe once or twice more when I get to work...It's one thing to understand inspiring words...You have to connect with them...If you go and listen to an inspirational speaker and you take in the words and understand them, you still wont get much out of them if you dont connect with them.

There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

It's a long road
When you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt
Will disappear

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

Lord knows
Dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone
Tear them away
Hold on
There will be tomorrow
In time
You'll find the way

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

In terms of inspirational music, it is Whitney Houston's "one moment in time", that is most probably because I am a procastinator; I turn it on when I have something I have to do but dread doing it:
Each day I live
I want to be
A day to give
The best of me
I'm only one
But not alone
My finest day
Is yet unknown

I broke my heart
Fought every gain
To taste the sweet
I face the pain
I rise and fall
Yet through it all
This much remains

I want one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

I've lived to be
The very best
I want it all
No time for less
I've laid the plans
Now lay the chance
Here in my hands

Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

You're a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine

Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will be
I will be
I will be free
I will be
I will be free

Another beautiful song...

I have to say that when I was breaking up with my lover of 3+ years...And I wanted him to move out...I would play EVERYDAY...

Friday night you and your boys went out to eat
Then they hung out
But you came home around three
Yes you did
If six of y'all went out
Then four of you are really cheap, yeah
Cuz only two of you had dinner
I found your credit card receipt

1 - It's not right, but it's ok
I'm gonna make it anyway
Pack your bags, up and leave
Don't you dare come running back to me

It's not right, but it's ok
I'm gonna make it anyway
Close the door behind you, leave your key
I'd rather be alone than unhappy

I pack a bag so you can leave town for a week, yes I am
The phone rings and then you look at me
(Why turn and look at me)
You said it was one of your friends
Down on 54th street, boy
So why did 213 show up on your caller ID

(I've been through all of this before)
I've been through all of this before
(So go out an dget your things)
Don't think about it, don't think about it
(And all the sleeping around, it takes some, boy )
They gon' get yours
(Things are gonna change)
Things are gonna change, baby
( Cuz I won't be your fool anymore)
You don't stand a chance, boy
(That's why you'll have to leave)
Say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(So don't turn around to see my face)
Don't you turn around
There's no more tears left here for you to see

Was it really worth you going out like that
Tell me boy
See I'm moving on
And I refuse to turn back, yeah
See all of this time
I thought I had somebody down for Whitney
It turns out you were making a fool of me, yeah

Mariah has written a lot of inspirational lyrics imo. She may not be to everyones taste but I think she's a great songwriter.

Anyway... one of the songs I listen to a lot is Toni's "Let It Flow" cause it's true... If you just let things take their course... even though they can seem terrible... It usually does work out alright in the end. So... it's a good song for a worrier like me to listen to!

And this too...Yeah, I was really conflicted...

"Think Of You"

Oh yeah
Sh de da de dup dem de doo

All the time I think of you
Holding on to someone new
Don't make me lose my mind
Seems like I been here before
Baby I can't take no more
Of you trying to play me out baby

I feel so strange thinking about you
After all the wrong you've done to me
I can't go on feeling like I do
Cause my heart loves you
I'm so confused

[Chorus]
Don't waste my time
Cause someone like me you'll never find
I thought we had a good thing
But I was wrong and now I must move on

To another love one that I can trust
With my heart I know she'll never run away
Just can't talk no more
So I'm out the door
Talk to me
Why you wanna play love games

[Chorus]
Don't waste my time
Cause someone like me you'll never find
I thought we had a good thing
But I was wrong and now I must move on

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
Don't waste my time
Cause someone like me you'll never find
I thought we had a good thing
But I was wrong and now I must move on

OMG..I am such a worrier...I will take the slightes thing and look at the worst case scenario and run with it...I search my brain every morning for something to worry about...Case in point, I saw a report on identity theft...and next thing you know...I was ordering credit reports and not just to because I should...It just consumed me...I worried myself sick that someone was using my identity...

That's so something I would do! however, being a worrier can be a good thing too... Cause I know I'll never knowingly commit a crime... and haven't so far just because I'd be so worried about what could happen to me if I was caught

Another uber-positive "believe in yourself" Mariah song:

Can't Take That Away (Mariah's Theme)

They can say,
Anything they want to say,
Try to bring me down,
But I will not allow anyone to succeed hanging clouds over me,
And they can try
How to make me feel that I,
Don't matter at all,
But I refuse to falter in what I believe or loose faith in my dreams

'Cause there's,
There's a light in me,
That shines brightly,
They can try,
But they can't take that away from me
From me

No no no

Oh they,
They can do
Anything they want to you,
If you let them in,
But they won't ever win,
If you cling to you pride, and just push them aside,
See I,
I have learned,
There's an inner peace I own,
Something in my soul that they can not possess
So I won't be afraid and the darkness will fade

'Cause there's,
There's light in me me,
That shines brightly, yes
They can try,
But they can't take that away from me

No oh oh,
They can't take this
Precious love I'll always have inside me,
Certainly the Lord will guide me where I need to go

They can say
Anything they want to say,
Try to bring me down,
But I won't face the ground,
I will rise steadily sailing out of their reach,
Although they do try,
How to make me feel that I,
Don't matter at all,
But I refuse to fall,
Tell me what I believe or loose faith in my dreams,
'Cause there's a light in me,
That shines brightly yes

And ugh... I copied and pasted that from a Mariah site and it's full of typos... It wasn't me.... "loose faith in my dreams"

Diva, you are so true...I cant "KNOWINGLY" commit crimes becuase I would just see a cop and run up to him and confess...

When you believe
Whitney Houston Featuring mariah carey

Many nights we prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hope for a song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know theres much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could, whoa, yes
There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
Its hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe
[mmmmmmmmmyeah]
Mmmyeah
In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer bird
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I’m standing here
My hearts so full, I cant explain
Seeking faith and speakin words
I never thought I’d say
There can be miracles
When you believe (when you believe)
Though hope is frail
Its hard to kill (mmm)
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve (you can achieve)
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe
[hey]
[ooh]
They don’t always happen when you ask
And it’s easy to give in to your fears
But when you’re blinded by your pain
Can’t see the way, get through the rain
A small but still, resilient voice
Says hope is very near, oh [oh]
There can be miracles (miracles)
When you believe (boy, when you believe, yeah) [though hope is frail]
Though hope is frail [its hard]
Its hard to kill (hard to kill, oh, yeah)
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve (you can achieve, oh)
When you believe somehow you will (somehow, somehow, somehow)
Somehow you will (I know, I know, know)
You will when you believe [when you]
(ohoh)
[you will when you]
(you will when you believe)
[oohoohooh]
[oh...oh]
[when you believe]
[when you believe]

i grew up on Whitney Houston amongst others and this is one of the most inspiring:

The Greatest Love Of All
Whitney Houston
(Whitney Houston)

I believe that children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody's searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I will live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity

Chorus:
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

And I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I will live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity

Chorus:
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

And if by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love

Mariah's hero is

Lord knows
Dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone
Tear them away
Hold on
There will be tomorrow
In time
You'll find the way

That part it just awesome


Anytime you need a friend has some cool lyrics, as does fantasy (probably my alltime fave mariah song)

Women's tennis sucks.
