Project HEAL has started a new blog series called HEAL Anthems where people from our community share what their recovery anthem is and why. We wanted to give you a playlist where you can access all of our favorite anthems and new anthems added each week. This week we have Christina Grasso, Advisory Board Member, PR Director and Instagram Manager.
You can check out our playlist and hear the song Christina chose below or on Project HEAL’s Spotify profile.
Song: “Gypsy” by Fleetwood Mac
What does this song mean to you?
Stevie Nicks’ music and own recovery from addiction has helped me immensely through my recovery process, but this particular song reminds me to stay connected to my roots and the person I was before anorexia took over. At that point I was still a child, and this song was written by Stevie about staying in touch with her younger self before her career took off. It’s a beautiful reminder of my values and is a song that has gotten me through numerous hospitalizations and treatment stays.
What’s your favorite lyric from the song?
“To the gypsy
She faces freedom
With a little fear
I have no fear
I have only love
And if I was a child
And the child was enough
Enough for me to love
Enough to love.”
