Song-ography, "My Life Would Suck Without You" edition...


What would my life suck without?  Well, it was a toss-up between Peanut M&M's and...



"My Life Would Suck Without Hope"
IPhone
Bucks County, Pennsylvania



"Once you choose hope,
anything is possible"

-Christopher Reeve



Hope, not to be confused with optimism.  There is a subtle, yet important difference.  "Optimism" is the belief that all will turn out in the way I desire.  Whereas "hope" is the conviction and trust that no matter how something turns out...I will be okay.

Peanut M&M's?  I'm optimistic I can snag a bag of them from the Halloween stash by the end of the afternoon.  But my life sure would suck without "hope".  Because I know that even if I get caught red-handed swiping those Peanut M&M's...I'm gonna be okay with, or without them.

Next week's Song-ography title comes courtesy of Adrienne at "My Memory Art". Which was kinda funny since I had just heard this song on the radio and was pondering it myself.  But truth-be-told...the only reason I as holding off on it was because I had NO IDEA what I was going to do with it photographically.  But it's time I challenge myself too.  So take a listen, "All Kinds of Kinds" might sound like a simple country tune, but it packs a message (and isn't that the beauty of so many country songs?)...

  10. 4 simple letters / immense power.
    M&Ms - either way, you can't go wrong. When God said "Let there be Candy!" he was thinking M&Ms. I'm positive of it.

  15. Thanks for this...you may have just altered my feelings about all those "hope" quotes out there! This aligns the concept of hope and my definition of faith...which is so good for me! And, the window shot is beautiful!

  16. Hope....yes! I've always heard that hope is not a wish. We often use the word hope interchangeably with wish...but it is a deep security as you mentioned. Hope goes so far beyond desires. Nice words friend. I love your depth mixed with humor.
