Random Spouting and Ranting

I Stand in the Light

Don’t worry about me, I’m gonna make it alright
Got my enemies crossed out in my sight
I take a bad situation gonna make it right
In the shadows of darkness I stand in the light

                Fall Back Down Rancid

I love this song.  I relate to it differently than the lyrics are meant (it’s about Tim Armstrong’s divorce and how his friends helped get him through it).  Regardless, the song still resonates for me.  I have had my ups and downs in life.  Those horrible bottoms where I never thought I would be able to come back out, but I do.  The support of my family and friends has always helped get me through, but more importantly, I empowered myself to get through my darkest hours.

I am feeling strong and happy, and not down in the dumps by any means.  Just listening to this song reminded me that I have friends and family who support me, but I am the one who has the power to “take a bad situation, gonna make it right”.
