New Day

How I feel about myself and my own life :-)

Before the light I found the dark
Before tonight I feel apart
Frozen up I've realized that something's gotta change

It took a crash to understand
Time kept slipping through my hands
I never used to know
The sun will shine after the rain

Say goodbye, say goodbye to the way I was before
Say hello, say hello to a new way
I was lost, but I found what I was looking for
Waking up, waking up to a new day
To a new day

I was sleeping in a twisted dream
Dying just to make believe
A pretty situation was far from where I was

But I'm not up for giving up
Lying down and out of luck
My mistakes are in the open and know I'm finally coming clean

Cause everything, everything ends at the start
I'm healing and feeling all of my scars

dance of life ~ for my Nani <3

For anyone who has been affected by cancer themselves, or knows someone who has been affected by cancer - and won the battle, lost the battle, or is still struggling.......

"Choreographer Tyce Diorio put together a beautiful dance for Melissa and Ade on the July 22nd episode of So You Think You Can Dance. The dance was based on a woman struggling with breast cancer, and showing the way she deals, as well as how her friend might deal as well. The judges loved the dance, even guessing that it would get Tyce nominated for another Emmy."

My Nani is my grandma - she had breast cancer, but beat it and won her battle, and is a survivor, but many people also lose their battle or are still struggling.....prayers and hope, light and love to them all <3

See the power of the scarf that Melissa is wearing in the video - represents her struggle as someone who had to undergo chemo (well the character she is playing had to go through that) and the scarf is representing her struggle and her battle, and you see the desperation in her facial expressions, but also the beautiful hope in her dance and movements, and that she is not giving up her battle with cancer.


Practice and dance and judges comments showing the performance that touched everyone and brought them to tears

Just the dance

Song "This Woman's Work" by Maxwell

Messages from the people who posted the videos on
"This is from tonight's "So You Think You Can Dance" featuring Tyce DiOrio's courageous choreography, drawing attention to the turmoil of a woman struggling with breast cancer, and its affects on her partner. I found it very moving, since my own mother struggled though breast cancer herself, but was fortunate enough to survive.
Brilliantly and sensitively performed by Melissa and Ade, this was their second performance of the evening, and brought everyone to tears, including all of the judges.
To Dick Clark Productions and Fox: Please leave this posted. It is a strong and meaningful message and it will draw a bigger audience to the TV program."
"Tonight's "So You Think You Can Dance" featuring Tyce DiOrio's stunning choreography, drawing attention to plight we face from breast cancer.
Every week I am touched by the beautiful dancers on SYTYCD
with their effort and creativity. Tonight my heart ached with love, hope and sorrow.
Melissa and Ade performed such a touching piece that brought tears to my eyes.
My dear Laura who lost her battle to cancer just over 1 years ago.. She is thanking
the performers Melissa and Ade, Tyce DiOrio, Fox, Dick Clark for allowing this message to be
watched by millions and with hopes that more will see this perfect performance with this posting.
I agree that this powerful creation should win an emmy in 2010.

To Maxwell - This Woman's Work and the strong and meaningful message it delivers I do hope this will draw attention to such a wonderful creation."
