For all my “good apple” friends and new blogger (louanne, wythcgurl, francis…) friends as well…our time will come…

Something Beautiful

(Robby Williams)

You can’t manufacture a miracle

The silence was pitiful that day.

And love is getting too cynical

Passion’s just physical these days

You analyse everyone you meet

But get no sign the loving kind

Every night you admit defeat

And cry yourself blind

If you can’t wake up in the morning

Cause your bed lies vacant at night

If you’re lost, hurt, tired or lonely

Can’t control it, try as you might

May you find that love that won’t leave you

May you find it by the end of the day

You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely

Something beautiful will come your way

The DJ said on the radio

Life should be stereo, each day

And the past that cast the unsuitable

Instead of some kind of beautiful, you just couldn’t wait

All your friends think you’re satisfied

But they can’t see your soul no, no, no


Forgot the time feeling petrified, when they lived alone

If you can’t wake up in the morning

Cause your bed lies vacant at night

If you’re lost, hurt, tired or lonely

Can’t control it, try as you might

May you find that love that won’t leave you

May you find it by the end of the day

You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely

Something beautiful will come your way

It’ll come your way

It’ll come your way some kind of beautiful

It’ll come your way some kind of beautiful

It’ll come your way some kind of beautiful

It’ll come your way

All your friends think you’re satisfied

But they can’t see your soul no no no

Forgot the time feeling petrified

When they lived alone

If you can’t wake up in the morning

Cause your bed lies vacant at night

If you’re lost, hurt, tired or lonely

Can’t control it, try as you might

May you find that love that won’t leave you

May you find it by the end of the day

You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely

Something beautiful will come your way

You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely

Something beautiful will come your way

“Sometimes I’m tempted to become a street person, cut off from society. But then I wouldn’t get to wear my outfits.”

Got the article below from Wytchgurl. Read through all my broken hearted friends…

When is it really over?

This is one of the mornings after another sleepless nights that I cannot help ask myself, why didn’t I have a goodnight sleep again? then I would just joke myself and answer it with, maybe someone’s been thinking of me all night…ha ha ha ha!

Jokes are always half meant, a friend said once. And maybe…just maybe, behind that joke, there’s this wishful thinking that someone from the past would again, bounce in my head… disturb my sanity and make my day half-miserable.

What if he’s thinking about me? What if he still loves me? It’s just another imagination, I know. Another day of what if and maybe’s. For the 9th time, I’ve told myself that when it’s over, it’s really over! there’s no sense turning back or even trying to pick up the pieces again. It’s time to move on and face the reality?

When it’s over, is it really over?

When you decide to let go, Do you really succeed in letting go? I just heard the latest song of Sugar Ray a while ago. Here’s the first few lines that caught my attention:

When it’s over That’s the time I fall in love again.

When it’s over That’s the time you’re in my arms again…..

How can you possibly say it’s over when you’re still in love with the person you said you were over with already? I guess it’s not that easy when the chain of the past locks you in the chest of false hopes and lead to a place called fantasy with Cinderella and Snow White as you best friends! The three of you gather on the hilltop and after a while three young drop-head gorgeous princess would come riding on their horses to join the picnic under a tree.

How pathetic! But, admit it or not. It’s true…. The hardest part of losing a loved one is to accept the fact that they’re gone and might never come back again. There are things that will always remind you of your togetherness… the places you’ve been, his/her favorite food you used to cook for her/him, expressions you used to hear from his/her song you both loved to sing. These are the memories that’d linger in your mind from time to time. Because you were both in love before (or so you think so), it makes you hope for another chance. You begin to believe on what others said that LOVE IS LOVELIER THE SECOND TIME AROUND and the line from Ally Mcbeal,

“Whoever said that ‘plenty of the fish in the sea’ thing is lying. Sometimes there’s only one…trust me…”

We would desperately believe that what happens in the movies might also happen to us one day. Who didn’t like the lines from the movie “Runaway Bride” where Julia Roberts told Richard Gere,

“I guarantee that we’ll have tough time; I guarantee that if I don’t ask you to be mine, I’ll regret this for the rest of my life, coz’ I know in my heart…you’re the only one for me.”

We tend to think that the person who left us will come back one day and say those things as trials to be conquered in order for the relationship to bloom and mature.

OuUccHh….Reality just bit me!

More often than not, these romantic movies and mushy love songs only make us long for something we cannot have… and for someone who cannot be our’s again. It hurts to admit that we are just pretending. All the while we already knew the truth but we ignore it. When the damage is done, there’s nothing left to do but cry… to mourn for the bitterness in our hearts. Then curse anybody who gets in the way.

I’m scared!!! Really I am.

As long as we still hold on to the past, the chance of meeting someone new may be a bit far off the field. The fear of trusting and falling in love again may also hinder us to grow and move on. We are hesitant to take the risk, afraid that we may get hurt again. Because of the negative thoughts stocked in our brains, we refuse to go out from our self made world and deprive ourselves from new opportunities, whether in love affairs or career wise.

Let’s face it!

Betrayal can be anywhere and anyone can be a victim. The worst part is when one we truly, madly, deeply love is the one who will betray us in the end. Then we are left with nothing but a broken heart and wounded pride. Sad…but true!

Reality check please….

It can happen to anyone, but we shouldn’t just take things as it comes. An action must be done. We should take care of ourselves from the hungry wolves in the jungle. It’s matter of survival. Stand up when you fall. It’s ok to cry as hard as long as you want to, just make sure that when you stop crying, you won’t cry for the same reason anymore. Learn and live. LOVE IS THE MOST WONDERFUL THING ONE CAN OFFER, so be smart enough to give the love in your heart to the one who really deserve it…

I just read the article below in CNN

Can vole experiment prevent cheating lovers?

LONDON, England (Reuters) — What would you give for a simple injection that would stop your lover from cheating?

Well, at least it works for meadow voles.

A single gene inserted into the brain can change promiscuous male rodents into faithful, monogamous partners, scientists said Wednesday.

It may not be as easy to rein in human philanderers but researchers at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center of Emory University and Atlanta’s Center for Behavioral Neuroscience said their rodent results could help to explain the neurobiology of romantic love.

“Our study … provides evidence in a comparatively simple animal model, that changes in the activity of a single gene profoundly can change a fundamental social behavior of animals within a species,” said Larry Young a researcher at the university.

He and his colleagues, who reported their research in the science journal Nature, used a harmless virus to transfer the gene for a key hormone involved in sexual behavior from monogamous prairie voles into the brains of their randy relatives, the meadow voles.

After the gene transfer, the previously promiscuous meadow voles had less of a roving eye and showed a distinct preference for their current partners.

Earlier research had shown that prairie voles, which form life-long partnerships, had higher levels of receptors for the hormone vasopressin in an area of the brain called the ventral pallidum, than meadow voles.

Introducing the gene increased the natural levels of the receptor and enhanced the meadow voles’ ability to form pair bonds.

Previous studies have also suggested that the receptors may play a role in disorders such as autism, and that brain pathways involved in romantic relationships also play a part in drug addiction.

“It is intriguing,” said Young, “to consider that individual differences in vasopressin receptors in humans might play a role in how differently people form relationships.”

The Breakup Test: Are you ready to move on?

You’re Ready for Mr. Right (24-30 points)

Congratulations! You survived the breakup, but even better, you’ve picked yourself up and dusted off that post-relationship rubble. Maybe it took a while, but all that TLC that you’ve given yourself lately has finally paid off! From divvying up the stuff, to finding your place in the Newly Single’s Scene, you’ve captured all the closure you need. Look out boys, here you come!
