Joey McIntyre's Stay The Same

Sometimes you tried very, very hard to be someone you are not supposed to be! Yes, you tried in vain to be someone else. You wanted to look like the most popular girl in the school by having the same hair cut; you wanted to be the hottest guy in the office by imitating the other popular guy's antics! You wanted to be anyone but yourself! It's such an irony. Why? Don't you know that God created you to be unique? You are one in a zillions. Yes! Although the only constant in this world is change...but sometimes...something are not meant to be changed.

So don't be a copycat!

Sometimes we should really be grateful with our ourselves. Some of us like to complain all the time. It's time we really ponder and stop for a moment. It's time to stop complaining and start counting our blessings. Sometimes...the best thing to do is to stay the same. Yes. You need to accept yourself; you need to look at the mirror...and cherish the person you are. Be grateful of what you have. :)

A decade ago...

This week's Music Monday, I decided to choose Joey Mcintyre's Stay The Same. This is one of my favourite songs of all time. I clearly remember myself singing to it when I was in secondary school. This song was first aired in 1998. Wow! That's like more than a decade ago right? And do you know that Joey McIntyre had to fork out his own money to record his first solo album-Stay The Same? Eventually he managed to land himself a recording deal and this song, rose into the Billboard Top 100 and peaked at No.10#! Talking about perseverance huh!

~Stay The Same~

Don't you ever wish you were someone else,
You were meant to be the way you are exactly.
Don't you ever say you don't like the way you are.
When you learn to love yourself, you're better off by far.
And I hope you always stay the same,
cuz there's nothin' 'bout you I would change.

I think that you could be whatever you wanted to be
If you could realize, all the dreams you have inside.
Don't be afraid if you've got something to say,
Just open up your heart and let it show you the way.


Believe in yourself.
Reach down inside.
The love you find will set you free.
Believe in yourself, you will come alive.
Have faith in what you do.
You'll make it through.
