This is my now!

While going through cancer treatments and dealing with all the mental anguish that comes with such an illness I was only focusing on the darkness and never saw the light.

After some time I forced myself to see the positive (light) that was also there.  This was and still is a process that I am working to achieve.

In this photograph can either focus on the dark side or the light. I choose the light.

This song, This is My Now, was my anthem for a long time.  It was the winning song performed on America Idol.

This is my now
by Jordan Sparks

There was a time I packed my dreams away.
Living in a shell, hiding from myself.

There was a time when I was so afraid.
I thought I’d reached the end,
But baby that was then
I am made of more than my yesterdays.

This is my now, and I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around
I can’t believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubt
That was then, this is my now.

I have to decide,
Was I gonna to play it safe.
Or look somewhere deep in side,
Try to turn the tide,
And find the strength to take that step of faith.

This is my now, and I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around
I can’t believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubt
That was then, this is my now.

And I have the courage like never before, yeah.
I’ve settled for less now I’m ready for more,
Ready for more.

This is my now, and I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around I can’t believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubt
That was then, this is my now.

I’m living in the moment
I look around I can’t believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubt
That was then, this is my now.
This is my now.

WP Photo Challenge: Converge

For this weeks WP Photo Challenge: Converge,  I thought of many ways to show how things converge but nothing seemed to be “just right”.    Then I notice the night sky and it came to me.

Night sky converging on the sun.

When I took this picture I thought of the poem “Do not go gentle into that good night.  I first heard parts of this poem from the movie Dangerous Minds back in mid 90’s.  I do not know much about poetry, I just know what I like and I like what I believe to be the message in this poem….to keep fighting.

Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.

by Dylan Thomas
