take your time

“Not everyone stops and remembers to smell the flowers. Some are too busy worrying about the future, or of mistakes they made in the past. Others are preoccupied with not getting caught, or thinking of ways to catch someone else. Still, there will be some who take the time and appreciate what spring has given them. Just as there will be those who’d prefer to sit in the dark, brooding over everything they’ve lost.”

unlikely friendships

” The world is filled with unlikely friendships. How do they begin? With one person desperately in need. And another willing to lend a helping hand. When such kindness is offered, we are finally able to see the worth of those we have previously written off. And before we know it, a bond has formed. Regardless of whether others can understand it. Yes, unlikely friendships start up every day. No one understands this more than the lonely. In fact, it’s what they count on.”

– Desperate Housewives

stronger than i would have guessed

What you say and how you look does not define who you are, because some of the most beautiful people do the ugliest things. You owe it to the people who hate you, who disrespect you and who put you down, because they are the ones who have made you who you are today; for keeping your head up and not breaking down when they want you to.

right by me

It’s the friend that stuck by you through everything that matters, the one that you have known your whole life, or just a year and yet you feel connected to them in a completely different way than anyone else around you. At most times, they feel like your family then your real one. They understand that the world can be a tough place, and they let you cry when bad things happen but they always manage to make you smile again. It’s the friend that you call at 5am because you fought with some stupid boy and she’ll help you plot revenge against him even though she does not even know him. They give you that extra energy to smile because you know that they’re right beside you whenever you need them.

Day 26 – Over Now

[Verse 1: Willie]
Girl I pray to God I’m dreamin’
And that’s not my bags, next to my keys (and)
As if you throw it all away, throw away our kids (and)
The house on the hill and, all the work we put in through the year
Babygirl, what if mom woulda left your daddy
Then I woulda never had ya
Think of where we woulda been then
Or baby what if my mom woulda met your papi
Got together and made things happen
Then we probably would’ve been kin

[Chorus: Willie]
You say it’s over now, but I beg to differ
And I hear you loud, sayin’ you don’t want me no more
It’s over now…
The game is over, I just lost
Tick, tick, tick… my clock just ran out
Just like the morning after
Please don’t say you mean like a benediction from a pastor
Babygirl I’m askin’ you to reconsider
Everything that your feelin’
Gotta be somethin’ we can work out, don’t say it’s over now

[Verse 2: Mike]
Baby think about what your doin’
Don’t make any hasty moves
Girl what’chu provin’?
Cause you know right now, I love you
And if I needed to, I’ll do what I have to show you
That I need you baby

[Bridge: Willie/Mike Adlibs]
Babygirl what if mom woulda left your daddy
Then I woulda never had ya
Think of where we woulda been then (think of where we woulda been, yeah)
Or baby what if my mom woulda met your papi
Got together and made things happen
Then we probably would’ve been kin

[Chorus: Willie/Mike Adlibs]
You say it’s over now, but I beg to differ
And I hear you loud, sayin’ you don’t want me no more (I hear you loud baby)
It’s over now… (oh)
The game is over, I just lost (oh)
Tick, tick, tick… my clock just ran out
Just like the morning after
Please don’t say you mean like a benediction from a pastor (closin’ of our love baby)
Babygirl I’m askin’ you to reconsider
Everything that your feelin’ (baby consider baby)
Gotta be somethin’ we can work out, don’t say it’s over now

[Verse 3: Robert]
Call the war off, bring the troops home
But please don’t say it’s over now
My heart can’t take no more
I been sayin’ this for so long
You can take everything I own
But please don’t take your love from me
It’s the most imporantant thing

[Chorus: Willie/Robert Adlibs]
You say it’s over now, but I beg to differ (it’s over now)
And I hear you loud, sayin’ you don’t want me no more (said I hear you loud)
It’s over now… (it’s over now)
The game is over, I just lost
Tick, tick, tick… my clock just ran out (just ran out)
Just like the morning after (morning after, yeah)
Please don’t say you mean like a benediction from a pastor (benediction from a pastor)
Babygirl I’m askin’ you to reconsider
Everything that your feelin’
Gotta be somethin’ we can work out (oh no)
Don’t say it’s over now…

The Secret of Success

To laugh often & love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons & the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest critics & endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give to one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden or a redeemed social condition; to have played & laughed with enthusiasm & sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived – this is the secret of sucess.

Mariah Carey – For The Record [New E=MC2]

For the record
You oughta know
You wasn’t thinking
When you let me go

But whatever
That’s how it goes
Win some you lose some
And others you hold in your heart

Why it gets so hard
Tears you all apart
Even though you try to let go
No, no, no

Suddenly you’re here
And it’s so surreal
And I don’t know
What the deal

Cause when I’m looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can’t just press rewind
I don’t wanna spend my life
Thinking what it could’ve been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like, the first time

Them other irregularities
They can’t compete with MC
The whole entire world can tell
That you love yourself some me

People see ya know
Asking all about
Me and how they always thought we
Were so perfect together

Let’s re-write the end
Start over again
And it’s gon go better now

Cause when I’m looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can’t just press rewind
I don’t wanna spend my life
Thinking what it could’ve been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like, the first time

For the record
You’ll always be a part of me
No matter what you do
And for the record
Can’t nobody say
I didn’t give my all to you

And for the record
I told you underneath the stars
That you belong to me
For the record
It’s obvious that
We just can’t let go of us, honey

Cause when I’m looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can’t just press rewind
I don’t wanna spend my life
Thinking what it could’ve been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like, the first time

Cause when I’m looking in your eyes
Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can’t just press rewind
I don’t wanna spend my life
Thinking what it could’ve been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
Feels like, the first time

For the record, baby
Now you know, baby
