Shake it out – that tumor, those fears with Florence & The Machine

This tumor business is tough: physically debilitating, emotionally draining. I often need a pick-me-up, a kick-in-the-pants or something that gives me hope.  Florence and The Machine’s song entitled “Shake it out” does that for me. For me, “Shake it out” is more than a song, it’s an anthem. An anthem I can use to fight my fears and worries and that stupid tumor in my head. 

I first learned about “Shake it out” from my wonderful wife who posted a link on her facebook page.  Here’s a choral tribute to Florence and The Machine by the Capital Children's Choir: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gj-ntawOBw4   

I find that it helps to read the lyrics as I listen to the song, you can find them here: http://www.metrolyrics.com/shake-it-out-lyrics-florence-and-the-machine.html I

And, of course, the devil in “shake it out” is my tumor.
Want the original? Ok, here’s a link to the youtube.com video by the resplendent and powerful Florence - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbN0nX61rIs
