Thank you to all of you whom I met here, for the followers whom inspired to blog more, for my friends, and for making life more colourful. Thank you God for the life, for the air I breathe, the lovely rain and for Mr. Sun, for my senses, for my family, friends and for the people who breathe for me when I am not able to breathe. 🙂

Man In The Mirror

I’m gonna make a change,
for once in my life
It’s gonna feel real good,
gonna make a diference
Gonna make it right…

As I, turn up the collar on
my favorite winter coat
This wind is blowing my mind
I see the kids in the streets,
with not enought to eat
Who am I to be blind?
Pretending not to see their needs

A summer disregard, a broken bottle top
And a one man soul
They follow each other on the wind ya’ know
‘Cause they got nowhere to go
That’s why I want you to know

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
(Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah)

I’ve been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It’s time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
Could it be really me, pretending that they’re not alone

A willow deeply scarred, somebody’s broken heart
And a washed-out dream
(Washed-out dream)
They follow the pattern of the wind ya’ see
‘Cause they got no place to be
That’s why I’m starting with me

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
(Ooh!)
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Ooh!)
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
(Ooh!)
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Change his ways – ooh!)
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make that..
CHANGE!

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
(Man in the mirror – Oh yeah!)
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Better change!)
No message could have been any clearer
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
(Take a look at yourself and then make the change)

(You gotta get it right, while you got the time)
(‘Cause when you close your heart)
You can’t close your… your mind!
(Then you close your… mind!)
That man, that man, that man, that man
With the man in the mirror
(Man in the mirror, oh yeah!)
That man, that man, that man,
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Better change!)
You know… that man
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make the change
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!
Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah
(Ooooh…)
Oh no, no no…

I’m gonna make a change
It’s gonna feel real good!
Come on!
(Change…)
Just lift yourself
You know
You’ve got to stop it,
Yourself!
(Yeah! – Make that change!)
I’ve got to make that change, today!
Hoo!
(Man in the mirror)
You got to
You got to not let yourself…
brother
Hoo!
(Yeah! – Make that change!)
You know – I’ve got to get
that man, that man…
(Man in the mirror)
You’ve got to
You’ve got to move! Come on!
Come on!
You got to…
Stand up! Stand up! Stand up!
(Yeah! – Make that change)
Stand up and lift yourself, now!
(Man in the mirror)
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!
Aaow!
(Yeah! – Make that change!)
Gonna make that change…
come on!
You know it!
You know it!
You know it!
You know it…
(Change…)
Make that change.

– I’ve been useless for words most times today, and I am putting most of them in a song.
I’ve had rough days for the most part and still having one. Despite that, I am grateful I am alive and still breathing and I am with the people I love, that I am still able to post here. :3

Ah! Life and it’s beauty!

Here’s a song from Michael Jackson covered by James Morrison, Man In the Mirror.
I choose this video than MJ’s coz it’s more calm.. well coz I like this better than the original, no offense though. MJ is a great singer and song writer and has great talents, but I like this version better.. personally 🙂

Good night WordPress!

I Can’t Make You Love Me

‘Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel something that it won’t..

I was never a super duper fan of Adele but I appreciate her talent.
Feeling slack today after being exhausted the past days and now sharing to you one of Adele’s cover from her concert at The Royal Albert Hall years ago.

Ah! Rain and cold weather and a song like this makes me weak.. :/

Blog of the Year Award

Blog of the Year Award! Woohoo!

Image

I have been nominated/ awarded by Hope and Love Radio once again! Thank you! You made my day! Yeebloodyha!

This is a different award from all the others I have received, and just what I have mentioned earlier from those that I have already posted, it’s always an honour and I am humbled to receive this. It’s been almost 4months since I got back to blogging, and every time I get awards, the more I am inspired to do more, not just my personal thoughts but something or could be anything that could be useful to others, too. 🙂

I present this award to:

1. http://doncharisma.org/

2. http://aopinionatedman.com/

I do not have much to nominate/ give this award to at the moment, though these two that I have chosen are the ones whom I look up to when it comes to thoughts and ideas. There are some that inspires me, especially the one that gave me this award 😉

Rules for Nominees

1-      Select the blog(s) you think deserve the Blog of The Year 2013 Award.

 2-      Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.

 3-      Let the blog(s) that you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the instructions with them. (Please, don’t alter the instructions or the badges!).

 4-      Come over and say hello to the originator of the Blog Of The Year 2013 Award via this link: http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/blog-awards-2-/blog-of-the-year-2013-award/

So you now have one from me, if you have one or two, three, four, whatever, already, Google for the image with the stars for the Awards you have.

Yes-That’s right-There are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once-this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ’1 star’ award- and every time you are given the award by another blog- you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favorite blogs- and even if they have already been given the award by someone else- you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum of 6 stars! You can either ‘swop’ your badge for the next one each time you are given the award- or even proudly display all six badges if you are lucky enough to be presented with the award 6 times!

You can find all the badges and banners and information you need via this link: ‘Blog of The Year 2013′ Award Badges.

Congratulations to everyone who received this award.

Cheer Up, Said I.

20131124-210707.jpg

There’ll be a point in your life when you have to be strong for your very own self. For no one will always be there to cheer you up or to be strong for you and tell you that things will be alright, that it is okay to feel this and be weak at some point. That it is okay to scream and be angry. Gee!

Don’t get me wrong. God is always around, yes I know but even some times, He makes Himself unseen to test our faith.

Ah! I don’t know how much more challenges and trials I will have to get through to get to where I should be.

This has to be one of the biggest test I’ve had for a long time. For whatever purpose, I don’t know.. But I am sure this is for the best, this is for my best. Oh Dear God! My heart’s too frail and I am so overwhelmed that I am on the verge of breaking down again.

Keeping my head bowed down as always and trying my best to obey and do what I have to, even at times I want to shout to my heart’s and lungs’ content. I am trying my best to understand even when my heart and mind have a lot of unanswered questions; rants and complaints, disappointments and sorrows. Doing my best to pull myself together and pretend to smile and laugh o people even when I so wanted to cry myself a river. Doing my very best to answer in a meek and mild voice even so I wanted to yell and wanted to smash something with a hammer or punch someone in the face just to get this anger out of my system. For staying even at times I wanted to run away and hide and wish I was a bubble that I’d just burst or pop out and people won’t see me again. Accepting reality that life was never fair and never will be. To forgive others and understand them and forget what they’ve done instead of hating them and wish they’d suffer or die at some point. To still love the people with the most unlovable heart and still believing in them no matter what they have done to me when I can just play with their heart and make fun of them and use them to my own advantage.

I wish I can. But I chose not to. And I don’t want to. It ain’t easy walking in Your way and doing what You’ve done but I am trying and doing my best one day at a time, one step at a time.

I know I still have a lot to do and to change within myself. Moreover, I have a lot of shortcomings and flaws but You stood by me and still loved me. And in return, even so I cannot give You back what You endowed me, I will do what I can and will continue to do what You want me to do even so it breaks me at times. If my sufferings and challenges are what please You, and if it is Your will, however, I will do it. 🙂

I will give back the glory and honour to You. 🙂
