当你离开的时候 - 蔡健雅

What you said made me wonder; Did I do too much? Did I bother you too much? How did a little more care turn into a feeling of annoyance? Am I that irritating? Am I that not worthy? If I am that bad, tell me straight in the face. Don't beat around the bush, playing hide and seek or playing hard to get when you don't have the slightest feeling. I am a man of ego, I will surely back off if you told me so. I don't hang around,begging people to do something. That is not me. Nor do I force people. Well, maybe I am not that worthy to be even your friend. And for that, I will keep shut till you come to me.

I felt like I don't deserve to be with you. Maybe it's because of my ever low self esteem and the insecurity of myself being around someone for too long. I felt like I can lose myself anytime and become someone else that is not me at all. I know that no one is ever perfect but then it's just hard for me to over this sense of feeling that has been with me since so long ago. My ego does not want me to open up to u. A lot of things that I've said might not be true and it's just the way I try to cover up what I really wanted to say. Behind the jokes are the words of truth. What is true inside is waiting for you to come and discover it. I've always been here, waiting. If only the ego in both of us could be stripped away, we would have been the people that express true things. Now, let's play the waiting game. Waiting for one of the ego to lower itself down and reveal the true person inside.

Taking Chances - Celine Dion

Some people are so full of themselves that they do not realize that the world does not revolve around them. They should understand that having a few connections here and there does not bring them around anywhere. They should also know that having a few years of experience does not necessary makes them a more matured person. They should also get to understand that having heard experiences from friends or people that they know will make them know the world more. Being over confident sometimes will bring disgust to others. Sometimes, with the few possessions that they have, it makes them think that they have achieved what a lot others have not. That may be true, but that does not give them the right to be too proud of themselves. Being humble and true to yourselves can bring a further road down. Don't be someone who is just an empty shell that is overly confident on the outside but empty in the inside and depended on others for experience or knowledge. We should constantly remind ourselves that there's always a mountain that is higher than us. Humility and bowing to the wind will prevent the grass from being taken away. Pride and boastful will cause the overly confident tree to be taken down by the storm.

Tattoo - Jordin Sparks

Appreciation. So easy to say it out, and yet so hard to show it and prove it. People constantly were asked to appreciate what they have before the lose what they have and start regretting. In reply, they would say they are appreciating what they have now, but when asked on how do they show their appreciation, most are dumbfounded. People just see what is in front of them and don't really think much ahead. What if one day you just lose everything that you have? What if the person that love you the most suddenly leave you just like that?

We often take things for granted, not realizing that the things that are given to us are all blessings to us for the hardship that we endured. It's not easy to obtain some things in our life, not easy to keep it and appreciate them either. Often, we forget the see the importance of the things that are in front of us. Instead, we tend to overuse, abuse our right and keep on repeating the same mistakes over and over, causing us to lose these items that plays an important part in our life. Dealing with a sudden loss is hard to cope, often leading to regret.

We are proud to think that the things we own will never leave us. We are confident that these things will remain by our side forever. We are greedy to think that what we have now is never enough and wanting more apart from keeping what we have now. Small gestures to appreciate will go a long way into memories. These small gestures will give a greater impact compared to money and time spent. These, are the token of appreciation, so meaningful and powerful that it will be carved into the hearts of people and memories to withstand the tests that come along. So powerful that it can make a person's day. Just a few sentences that come out from the heart, little actions that go unnoticed, or a simple gift with time and the heart that is put into it. How many of you have done these things?
