Hi guys

I'm brand spanking new to this community and figured I'd start off by posting some positive affirmation. I don't know how many of you are rock/music fans but I feel this is something important to share. Especially in this community!

When things start looking a bit bleak or I feel a bit down, I play the following song at full blast and sing along as loud as I can. It helps a hell of a lot. If this can inspire just one person out there, I'd consider this post a success... Community support is invaluable but at the end of the day, you need to believe in yourself and your own strength to get through this.

Hear it here:

Artist: Manowar
Album: Kings of Metal
Track: Heart of Steel


Build a fire a thousand miles away to light my long way home
I ride a comet
My trail is long to stay
Silence is a heavy stone...
I fight the world and take all they can give
There are times my heart hangs low
Born to walk against the wind
Born to hear my name
No matter where I stand I'm alone

Stand and fight
Live by your heart
Always one more try
I'm not afraid to die
Stand and fight
say what you feel
Born with a heart of steel

Burn the bridge behind you
Leave no retreat
There's only one way home
Those who laugh and crowd the path
And cut each other's throats
Will fall like melting snow
They'll watch us rise with fire in our eyes
They'll bow their heads
Their hearts will hang low
Then we'll laugh and they will kneel
And know this heart of steel was
Too hard to break
Too hard to hold

Stand and fight
Live by your heart
Always one more try
I'm not afraid to die
Stand and fight
Say what you feel
born with a heart of steel
