My Favorite Lyrics

"Welcome To Wherever You Are"

Maybe we're different, but we're still the same
We all got the blood of Eden, running through our veins
I know sometimes it's hard for you to see
You come between just who you are and who you wanna be

If you feel alone, and lost and need a friend
Remember every new beginning, is some beginning's end

Welcome to wherever you are
This is your life, you made it this far
Welcome, you gotta believe
That right here right now, you're exactly where you're supposed to be
Welcome, to wherever you are

When everybody's in, and you're left out
And you feel your drowning, in a shadow of a doubt
Everyone's a miracle in their own way
Just listen to yourself, not what other people say

When it seems you're lost, alone and feeling down
Remember everybody's different
Just take a look around


Be who you want to, be who you are
Everyone's a hero, everyone's a star

When you wanna give up, and your hearts about to break
Remember that you're perfect, God makes no mistakes


This song is from Bon Jovi. First time I hear it, I nearly cry.

The Last Lecture

This is the last lecture by Randy Pausch who just pass away on 25 July 2008 . He has pancreatic cancer and has fought the disease and extended his remaining days far more than his doctor predicted.

His last lecture is very inspiring, after watching this, I started to realize there is no such things as fair or not fair in life, things just happen and we just need to do the best in that given situation like those young soldier fighting for the beach from German on D-day. It is pointless to ask fair or not, we just need to fight it.
