Today is the ninth day of Migraine and Headache Awareness Month (MHAM). In observance of MHAM, the American Headache and Migraine Association (AHMA) is holding their annual Migraine and Headache Awareness Month Blogging Challenge (MHAMBC). Each day, a topic related to the MHAM theme, “Inspiring Hope,” is posted on the AHMA blog, and bloggers are invited to blog on that topic, giving it their own unique point of view.
The purpose of the blogging challenge is to involve the online community in awareness efforts, raise public awareness, and give bloggers a creative outlet and a way to interact with each other.
Today’s challenge prompt is to watch the video of Brian McKnight’s song, “Win,” and share the lyrics we believe.
This is difficult, but only because I love all of the lyrics of this song. It could be the theme song for holding on to hope. I keep this song on my iPod so I can listen to it often. Here are the parts of the lyrics that I find especially strong and true:
“Never lose hope, never lose faith
There’s much too much at stake
Upon myself I must depend
I’m not looking for place to show, I’m gonna win.”
“I can weather the storm.”
“I’ve been down this road before.”
“And if I fall, I’ll never fail
I’ll just get up and try again.”
The Migraine and Headache Awareness Month Blog Challenge is organized by thAmerican Headache and Migraine Association_.
