Today My Life Begins – Bruno Mars

I've been working hard so long
seems like pain has been my only friend
my fragile heart's been done so wrong
i wondered if I
I'd ever heal again
oh just like all the seasons never stay the same
all around me i can feel a change

i will break these chains that bind me, happiness will find me
leave the past behind me, today my life begins
a whole new world is waiting it's mine for the taking
i know i can make it, today my life begins

yesterday has come and gone
and I've learn how to leave it where it is
and i see that i was wrong
for ever doubting i could win
oh just like all the seasons never stay the same
all around me i can feel a change


i will break these chains that bind me, happiness will find me
leave the past behind me, today my life begins
a whole new world is waiting it's mine for the taking
i know i can make it, today my life begins

life's to short to have regrets
so I'm learning now to leave it in the past and try to forget
only have one life to live
so you better make the best of it


i will break these chains that bind me, happiness will find me
leave the past behind me, today my life begins
a whole new world is waiting it's mine for the taking
i know i can make it, today my life begins
today my life begins...

Stupidity

I used to have someone ..
who understand me well..
who know who I really am .. and still, accept me without any questions..
who know both sides of me.. and yet, love me the way I am..
and thought that I am the best for him..
the man I destroyed, but still love me with every pieces of his heart..

now.. he's gone.
just because of my stupid decision..
my stupid thought that he can find his true happiness by this way.. that he will be much better without me interfering his life..

the thing I didn't know is.. by the time I removed him from my life.. I also changed our life.. forever.
he has changed. he is not the man I used to know anymore..
I was changed, too. I lost someone that very important to me.. and I will never meet him anymore..

... no matter how many times I apologize, things can't get back to where they use to be.

never 'kick' someone from your life just because you think that is the best for him/her.. cause the reality is not as simple as that.

Greeting Card

Who doesn’t love holiday? I bet all of us love holidays! Beside of visiting each other, go to vacation spot, or anything else, sending greeting cards is a perfect way to make our holidays become more special and memorable.

Greeting cards are usually given on special occasions such as birthdays, Christmas or other holidays, and they are also sent to convey thanks or express other feeling. Greeting cards usually packaged with an envelope, come in a variety of styles.

Holiday Greeting Cards is the best source for us who need greeting cards for personal purpose or even for business use. They provide beautiful greeting cards for all our holiday needs at a nice price. There, we can personalize our own greeting card by our own unique design! Don’t worry, they will guide us on the process of designing.

This site provides a large selection of available themes (all of them have very beautiful pictures and fonts) and all we must do is add a unique touch to them by creating our own messages. For me, I love to create a greeting card with pictures of people I love. Adding the photographs from our special moments will create a nostalgic feel to the cards and, furthermore, to the recipient.

So, what are you waiting for?! Visit the site and start designing your very own greeting card!

JaeJun’s Letter for Hana

Dear Hana...
Thank you for spending the past days with me.
And I'm sorry.
The time I had with you...
It was fun.
But now, I have to leave all this...
I told you before,
That when I get caught cheating, It would be the end.
Hana...
I didn't have any chance to tell you about myself.
I was really pathetic
I started my own business
Without any hesitation
And I did whatever I want to do
Back then,
I thought life was just a game
But it all went wrong...
The relationship I had,
I lost all of them.
My family, my friends, and the girl...
I get distressed by it when I think of it now
I think that was the most tiring part
But I got into accident.
In those times,
I felt like I was running away from the tiring game of life.
But after I found this job,
I was happy.
After I met you,
I completely changed.
If felt like I found something special.
This is the truth.
The time I spent with you...
... was the best.
I was thinking.
Instead of sending other people's letters,
I've always wanted to send my own,personal ones.
After looking back,I had a complicated thought.
I worked hard and wrote this letter.
The plan with the man and son's tape was a big disaster
Please forgive me...
Even though, I'm not familiar with writing a letter...
The thought of wanting to send a letter to someone is my first time.
And I thought I had to do it properly.
I mean, I wanted to...
Hana,
I'm very thankful.
Hana...
Goodbye...

Those are letter from a ‘Postman to Heaven’ that met a girl in his journey.. A girl that changed his life forever..

I’m Sorry..

they said..
regret always came late.
and I never mind it before..
for me, that sentence is just a words made by those who regret their decisions.

until these days, when I realized my foolishness.
3 months we spent without talking.
92 days we spent without seeing each other.
2208 hours we passed, alone.
132480 minutes I spent regretting my decision.
and 7948800 seconds for missing you.

I apologize, dear..
I thought that's the best way for you.
I was sure you will go on over the pain and start to search another beginning.

but now..
I realized.
that my method is damn wrong.
and it's too late now for me to come back.
like all things that happen in our world, I realized how much you're mean for me after I lost you :')

sorry I was a fool ..

Dear Carolline

When you read this, we’re already separated by a long long distance. But I know that distance doesn’t matter. Somehow, we are connected by an unbreakable bond. That’s why in our heart, we’re still having each other.

Well.. I’m not good at writing.. and I’m not good at saying goodbye, too. So forgive me, dear.. I won’t say any ‘goodbye’ to you. Cause there’s no goodbye for families.

Instead of goodbye, I want to thank you. Thank you for everything you gave to me, for everything you’ve done, for always be there, for cheering me up. Thanks for changing me to a better person. I’m really grateful I met you. You’re really a God’s gift for us. Without you, I won’t be the same person as I am.

We believe that someday we’ll meet again. We will go again to that place, together. Until that time, let’s chase our dreams. Do your best! I know you will make your family proud. Maybe it is not easy to get our dreams come true, but you must not give up.

Remember, there’s a rainbow after a rain. No matter how hard or how sad it will be, there will be happiness behind them. And you’re not alone. You still have us, wherever and whenever you need us, we’ll be there. Like our favorite song, ‘Count on Me’. Remember the lyric? Secret telling smile And we also have each other, too.

Ah.. As you know, I always not good at ending something. Including this one. I don’t know what to say.. I wish for your happiness, dear. God bless.

From fish that always love you.

Goodbyes

We are finally arrived at the crossroads. Everybody chose their way and then they are going to chase their own dream.

One by one, person I love are leaving.. As they go, part of me is torn.. Leaving a big hole inside. We can do nothing about this cruel rule of life. Everything that has a beginning, has an end.

But, like people say, High School memories will never die. No matter how far the distance between us, somehow, deep inside our heart we’re still connected.

Guys, we have promised that one day, we will meet again. I know people will change. As our life go on, we will go to different places, meet new friends, and do something different. But please don’t let go that promise. Till that day, let’s fighting for our dream!

Right Here Waiting

Oceans apart, day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice, on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain
If I see you next to never
how can we say forever

Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be right here, waiting for you
Whatever it takes, or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all The times
That I thought would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now
Oh can't you see it baby,
You've got me going crazy

Sands, Pebbles, and Rocks


A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in
front of him. When class began, wordlessly he picked up a large
empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, rocks
about 2" in diameter.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them
into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course,
rolled into the open areas between the rocks.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The students laughed. The professor picked up a box of sand and
poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

"Now," said the professor, "I want you to recognize that this is
your life. The rocks are the important things - your family, your
partner, your health, your children - anything that is so important
to you that if it were lost, you would be nearly destroyed.

"The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your
house, your car.

"The sand is everything else. The small stuff.

My Favourite Anime Lately

Well.. I really love DNAngel anime since I was a little girl. I love its story, its characters, its graphic, anything about it! And years after that anime ended, I still not have found anything as cool as DNAngel yet. Until few months ago, my friend, Reyvateilia gave me an anime. An amazing one. CLANNAD. This anime.. was really cool. This anime was one of the most saddest, but also one of the most funniest anime I've ever seen. Not just that, the story is just like our daily life, so we can understand it well and touched so easily. Scene by scene amazed me and I learned a lot from this anime. It told me how even a modest life working at a bakery can be full of love and excitement. Maybe the ending seem to come out of nowhere, but without spoiling it, I see a powerful way to show that a life filled with suffering and love still better than a boring life with no risk at all. Nagisa and Tomoya really taught me many things. Thanks a lot, Rey! But DNAngel is still my favourite also! :p

A Barber Story

One day, a barber said that he doesn't believe in God. His customer asked him back: "Why do you think like that?"
"Well, look at there, at the street. Tell me, if God does exist, why there are sick people? Why there a lot of people suffer?" the barber said. "If God does exist, there will nobody sick or suffering. I can't imagine that Almighty God let all of those bad things happen to us," he continued.

His customer was quite, she didn't want to argue with him. The barber finished his job and the customer left.
Few moments later, she saw a guy with long and dirty hair. That guy was so messy. She went back to the barber shop and shouted: "You know what? Actually, there is NO barber."

The barber was angry. "How can you say that?! I'm here and I just cut your hair a moment ago!"
"No way! There is no barber. If barber really exist, there will be no guy with long dirty messy hair out there!" said the customer.
"But the barber does exist! It was their own fault. Why don't they come to me? I can fix them up," said that barber proudly.

"THAT'S IT! That's the point!" the customer replied.
"God does exist! But people don't come to Him, people don't search for Him! That's why there are lot of people fall into sickness and pain."

And the barber stunned in silent.

Blueberry Muffin

A muffin is an American English name for a type of bread that is baked in small portions. Many forms are somewhat like small cakes or cupcakes in shape, although they usually are not as sweet as cupcakes and generally lack frosting. Savory varieties, such as cornbread muffins, also exist. They generally fit in the palm of an adult hand, and are intended to be consumed by an individual in a single sitting.

Outside the United States of America, muffin can also refer to a disk-shaped muffin, usually called an English Muffin outside of England. As American-style muffins are also sold in Commonwealth countries, the term muffin can refer to either product, with the context usually making clear which is meant.

There are many varieties and flavors of muffins made with a specific ingredient such as blueberries, chocolate chips, cucumbers, raspberry, cinnamon, pumpkin, date, nut, lemon, banana, orange, peach, strawberry, boysenberry, almond, and carrot, baked into the muffin. Muffins are often eaten for breakfast; alternatively, they may be served for tea or at other meals.

Here is the recipe for blueberry muffin I got from allrecipes.com :

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Combine the egg, milk, oil and vanilla; add to the dry ingredients just until moistened. Gently fold in blueberries. Fill greased or paper-line muffin cups two-thirds full.
  2. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-27 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
  3. Blueberry muffins are ready!

Jesus Love Us

Last Wednesday I went to a trip called Antiokhia with my friends. We stayed at Gadog, Puncak, West Java, Indonesia for 3 days. There, we met a lot of new friends. We sang a lot songs and danced. It was so exciting. But the important thing was, we listened to a lot of presentations about God and us.
There were some videos on the presentations. I was really touched by those videos.
As soon as I went home, I searched through internet and found this amazing site.

There are many more videos like this at www.donghaeng.net. Praise the Lord :)

Daffodil, March Birthflower

Each month has a flower that symbolizes the month of somebody's birth. Every month has a flower that is sometimes referred to as a Birth Month Flower.
Like people, each birth flower is distinctive – filled with significance and wonderful stories.

The daffodil is the March birth flower. Daffodils have the flower meaning of rebirth, respect, regard and unrequited love. The daffodil is one of the first flowers of spring, therefore it is a symbol of rebirth. The March birth flower, daffodil, is the common English name for all narcissus plants.

Aquamarine

Aquamarine is a blue-green stone that comes from Colombia and Brazil. It has been called "Water of the Sea", because of its color. The name aquamarine is derived from the Latin word aqua, meaning water, and marina, meaning the sea. The aquamarine is the stone of sailors, believing it would be protection for them on water. Folklore says the aquamarine will protect against gossip. It is also said the aquamarine will pick up spirits. It is an excellent stone to use for meditating.

The serene color of aquamarine is said to cool the temper, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded. Its pale, cool color beautifully complements spring and summer wardrobes. Aquamarine is most often light in tone and ranges from greenish blue to blue-green; the color usually is more intense in larger stones. This gemstone is mined mainly in Brazil, but also is found in Nigeria, Madagascar, Zambia, Pakistan, and Mozambique.

This is one of March Birthstones. My favorite one :)

When You're Gone - Avril Lavigne

I often listen to this song, and I've never noticed before.
But now, after he left me (well, I was the one who make him go away, but I believed that leaving me is the best way to make him much better) this song.. how to say it?
The lyric which sang by Avril stabbed me right into the heart. LOL
Maybe it's too hyperbolic, but yeah, that's exactly what I felt..

Recently, my sister learned to play guitar with this song, too. So I want to post the chords also with the lyric. I hope this will help you, who feel the same with me about the song, or you who wants to play this song with any kind of instrument.

Little Act with BIG Impacts

I found this story when I was surfing through the net. And I really touched. I immediately want to post it here. This story maybe has a boring topic at the beginning, but please, wait and keep reading until the very end :D
Here it goes.

When I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class walking home from school. His name was Kyle. He looked as if he was carrying all his books.
I thought to myself, "Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must be a nerd."
I had quite a weekend planned ahead (parties and a football game with my friends) so I shrugged my shoulders and went on.

As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running towards him. They ran into him, knocking him down and causing all his books to fly out of his arms. His glasses went flying and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. My heart went out to him. Hence, I jogged over to him and tried to help him as he crawled around looking for his glasses with a tear in his eye.
I handed him his glasses and said, "Those guys are jerks. They really should get lives."
He looked at me and said, "Hey, thanks!"

There was a big smile on his face.

It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude. I helped him pick up his books and asked him where he lived. It turns out that he lived near me so I asked him why I had never seen him before. He said he had gone to a private school previously. That was when I realized I had never hung out with a private school kid before. We talked all the way home and I helped carried some of his books. He turned out to be a pretty cool kid. I invited him to play a little football with my friends and he agreed.

We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him. He was equally popular with my friends. When Monday morning came, I saw Kyle with a huge stack of books again.
I stopped him and said, "Boy, you are really going to build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!"
He simply laughed and handed me half the books. Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends. When we were seniors, we began to think about college. Kyle decided on Georgetown and I was going to Duke.

Chocolate Cake

This is a quick and easy chocolate cake you can cook in the microwave in short time. And it tastes great! It makes me want to share it here.

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt

Directions

1. Spray a medium microwave-safe bowl with non-stick spray and set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine the butter, sugar, egg, vanilla extract, and milk; blend together. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt; blend into the mixture until smooth. Pour into greased bowl.

2. Cover and cook in the microwave on high for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, or until cake springs back when touched. Since all microwaves cook differently, adjust the cooking time to accommodate your machine. To serve, let the cake cool five minutes, then cover the bowl with a plate and turn both bowl and plate upside down so the cake falls onto the plate.

3. Then, put some chocolate chips, nuts, or any of your favorite toppings.

Younha - My Song and ...

I made a song for you, my friend
I made a song that I will sing for you
Filling my life with many beautiful lights
And a thousand melodies
You are my paradise

I made a song for you, my dream
I made a song that I will sing for you, my friend
Falling in love with every part of your life
Until the end of time
I love you more than my life

I wanna know you more
When you call me an angel
When you closely look into my eyes

Even though my love for you may fade away
I wanna give you more than words ever say
Cause I believe in you
And my song will fill the air when we're apart

Even though my love for you may fade away
I wanna let my words be true to the end of time
Cause I believe you'll never forget
and I won't forget the song in my heart

Every time when I was down
You always came around
And you love all the lights in my life

I am gonna sing forever
I am gonna sing forever

Close your eyes
I wanna give you more than words ever said
Cause I believe in you
And my song will fill the air when we're apart

Even though my love for you may fade away
I wanna let my words be true to the end of time
Cause I believe you'll never forget
And I won't forget this song in my heart

I wanna sing for you my friend
I wanna sing for you with all my heart
I wanna sing for you my dream
I wanna sing for you my..

Echo

A son and his father were walking on the mountains.
Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"

Curious, he yells: "Who are you?"
He receives the answer: "Who are you?"
And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!"
The voice answers: "I admire you!"
Angered at the response, he screams: "Coward!"
He receives the answer: "Coward!"

He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?"
The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention."
Again the man screams: "You are a champion!"
The voice answers: "You are a champion!"
The boy is surprised, but does not understand.

Then the father explains: "People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.
It gives you back everything you say or do.
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart.
If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.
This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life;
Life will give you back everything you have given to it."
YOUR LIFE IS NOT A COINCIDENCE. IT'S A REFLECTION OF YOU!

1000 papercranes

Once upon a time, there was once a guy who was very much in love with this girl. This romantic guy folded 1,000 pieces of papercranes as a gift to his girl. Although, at that time he was just a small executive in his company, his future doesn't seemed too bright, they were very happy together. Until one day, his girl told him she was going to Paris and will never come back. She also told him that she cannot visualise any future for the both of them, so let's go their own ways there and then... heartbroken, the guy agreed.

When he regained his confidence, he worked hard day and night, slogging his body and mind just to make something out of himself. Finally with all these hardwork and with the help of friends, this guy had set up his own company...

"You never fail until you stop trying." he always told himself. "I must make it in life!"
One rainy day, while this guy was driving, he saw an elderly couple sharing an umbrella in the rain walking to some destination. Even with the umbrella, they were still drenched. It didn't take him long to realise those were his ex-girlfriend's parents. With a heart in getting back at them, he drove slowly beside the couple, wanting them to spot him in his luxury sedan. He wanted them to know that he wasn't the same anymore, he had his own company, car, condo, etc. He had made it in life!

Footprints I Left Behind

This was sent to me my email and I thought it was too good to not be shared.

The story tells about a soldier who was finally coming home after having fought in Vietnam. He called his parents from San Francisco. "Mom and Dad, I'm coming home, but I've got a favor to ask. I have a friend I'd like to bring with me."

"Sure," they replied, "we'd love to meet him."

"There's something you should know," the son continued. "He was hurt pretty badly in the fighting. He stepped on a land mine and lost an arm and a leg. He has nowhere else to go, and I want him to come live with us."

"I'm sorry to hear that, son. Maybe we can help him find somewhere to live."

"No, Mom and Dad, I want him to live with us."

"Son," said the father, "you don't know what you're asking. Someone with such a handicap would be a terrible burden on us. We have our own lives to live, and we can't let something like this interfere with our lives. I think you should just come home and forget about this guy. He'll find a way to live on his own."

At that point, the son hung up the phone. The parents heard nothing more from him. A few days later, however, they received a call from the San Francisco police.

Taylor Swift - Mine

You were in college, working part-time, waiting tables
Left a small town and never looked back
I was a flight risk, afraid of fallin'
Wondering why we bother with love, if it never lasts

I say, "Can you believe it?"
As we're lyin' on the couch
The moment, I can see it
Yes, yes, I can see it now

Do you remember, we were sittin' there, by the water?
You put your arm around me for the fist time
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Flash forward, and we're takin' on the world together
And there's a drawer of my things at your place
You learn my secrets and figure out why I'm guarded
You say we'll never make my parents' mistakes

But we got bills to pay
We got nothin' figured out
When it was hard to take
Yes, yes

This is what I thought about:

Do you remember, we were sittin' there, by the water?
You put your arm around me for the fist time

The Water-Bearer & His Pots

A water-bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master's house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pot full of water in his master's house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect to the end for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water-bearer one day by the stream. "I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you." "Why?" asked the bearer. "What are you ashamed of?" "I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master's house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don't get full value from your efforts," the pot said. The water-bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion he said, "As we return to the master's house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path."

History of Chinese New Year

There are several theories as to the origins of the Chinese New Year. The Chinese calendar is based on a combination of lunar and solar movements. Each lunar year is represented by one of 12 animals. This calendar is also called the Chinese Zodiac. The current Chinese lunar calendar was developed during the Tang dynasty (A.D. 618-907), with a lunar cycle of 29.5 days. The Chinese insert an extra month once every two to three years to compensate for the differences between the lunar calendar and the solar movements, similar to adding an extra day for leap year. This is why the Chinese New Year falls on a different day each year.

Chinese New Year's celebrations start with the New Moon on the first day of the year and will end on the full moon 15 days later. It is also sometimes referred to as the Spring Festival or the “Beginning of Spring.” Although known as Chinese New Year the Lunar New Year is actually celebrated by others besides the Chinese.

Secondhand Serenade - Goodbye

It's a shame that it had to be this way
It's not enough to say I'm sorry
It's not enough to say I'm sorry

Maybe I'm to blame
Or maybe were the same
But either way I can't breathe
Either way I can't breathe

All I had to say is goodbye
Were better off this way
Were better off this way

I'm alive but I'm losing all my drive
Cause everything we've been through
And everything about you
Seemed to be a lie
A guiltless twisted lie
It made me learn to hate you
Or hate myself for letting it pass by

Fishing Joke

Alex had a terrible day fishing on the lake, sitting in the blazing sun all day without catching a single one. On his way home, he stopped at the fishmonger and ordered four rainbow trout. He told the fishmonger, 'Pick four large ones out and throw them at me, will you?'

'Why do you want me to throw them at you?' Asked the salesman?' So that I am able to tell my wife, in all honesty, that I caught them.' said Alex.

'Okay, but I suggest that you take the salmon.' Why's that? 'Because your wife came in earlier today and said that if you came by, I should tell you to take salmon. That's what she'd like for supper tonight', replied the fishmonger with a grin.
