If You’re Goin’ Through Hell – Keep On Going

If you’re goin’ through hell keep on going

Don’t slow down if you’re scared don’t show it

You might get out before the devil even knows you’re there

When you’re goin’ through hell keep on movin’

Face that fire walk right through it

You might get out before the devil even knows you’re there


I am not even embarrassed to admit that this Rock Chick likes her Country Music. Those lyrics are from a song by Rodney Atkins and I think the lyrics are so damn powerful and inspiring.

We all need a little reminder to keep going from time to time and lyrics do just that for me! Maybe you find your inspiration and drive from something else – like poems or certain extracts in books. Whatever works for you, they are a nice reminder that whatever you are feeling is normal and totally relatable. You are not in it alone.

I have struggled this past week with my anxiety and my OCD. Work and personal ‘to-do’s’ have felt overwhelming and I have had to seriously fight the urge to just procrastinate on life and stay in bed. It happens from time to time – we are always in battle with our mind and focusing on one small step of daily action at a time is the best way to fight back.

This song reminds me of how important it is to focus on the good times and to keep the goal in mind, regardless of life’s setbacks.

We never know what the future will hold for each of us, or when the next lousy day will knock us down, the only guarantee is right now and to keep on going. There will always be another bad day or another letdown and the most important thing is to realise this and to STILL keep going in a positive way. Don’t waste a second letting life keep you down.

If we keep this in mind, I really believe we can make a difference not only in our own lives but in the lives of those around us.

How we react to any situation is ALWAYS in our control. How we perceive a situation is also ours to choose.

So put your most inspiring songs on, crank up the volume, sing the lyrics out loud and think positive thoughts and you “might get out before the devil even knows you’re there”

    I 100% agree with this. I find lyrics very inspirational.
    My most inspirational lyrics come from a song by Long beach dub all stars.

    “It’s like the wise man said relax yourself,
    When it’s movin’ too fast set it down,
    When the goin’ gets tough it gets you goin’,
    If ya really want to speak then make a sound,
    Keep your eyes on the prize and realise,
    That the trouble’s gonna come in all shapes and sizes,
    Well ya gotta stay strong don’t let your knees buckle,
    Ya gotta keep hustlin’, keep hustlin’, movin’, groovin’,”
