Then You Stand

Feeling much like this picture of a hurricane today ~ the ground beneath me seems to be moving like waves in the ocean. A feeling of overwhelming hopelessness shrouds my thinking. Will I ever feel normal again? If I do decide to go ahead and have brain surgery, will I feel better or have a whole new set of problems? I can see that if I keep going in this direction, my thoughts could drag me down in a death spiral.

So ~ I get up, walk around outside, breathe some fresh air into my lungs, clear my mind and the lyrics of a Rascal Flatts song, "Stand", comes to my rescue:

You feel like a candle in a hurricane
Just like a picture with a broken frame
Alone and helpless
Like you've lost your fight
But you'll be alright

Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you're made of
You might bend, till you break
Cause its all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you've had enough
You get mad you get strong
Wipe your hands shake it off
Then you stand, Then you stand.
