This quote sounds sooo corny 😜😜. And I am sure you have read similar quotes. I created this quote to motivate myself. And I hate that I am even posting it LOL. But the reason I am posting it, is because following your dreams, your passion above anything else is a heavy burden 😔😔😔. Rejecting everything else and always motivating yourself, always keeping the faith in your dream is HARD. But we have to keep pushing, we have to look internally and PUSH ourselves. Because we only get one life. Here is hoping no one gives up on their dreams. Much love. xoxo

Don’t ever forget that God is so powerful. If you ask for it today and it doesn’t come best believe that he’s working on it and he will give you what you asked for. Always keep faith!

There were plotters, there was no doubt about it. Some had been ordinary people who’d had enough. Some were young people with no money who objected to the fact that the world was run by old people who were rich. Some were in it to get girls. And some had been idiots as mad as Swing, with a view of the world just as rigid and unreal, who were on the side of what they called “The People." Vimes had spent his life on the streets, and had met decent men and fools and people who’d steal a penny from a blind beggar and people who performed silent miracles or desperate crimes every day behind the grubby windows of little houses, but he’d never met The People.

People on the side of The People always ended up disappointed, in any case. They found that The People tended not to be grateful or appreciative or forward-thinking or obedient. The People tended to be small-minded and conservative and not very clever and were even distrustful of cleverness. And so the children of the revolution were faced with the age-old problem: it wasn’t that you had the wrong kind of government, which was obvious, but that you had the wrong kind of people.

As soon as you saw people as things to be measured, they didn’t measure up.

— 

Night Watch, by Terry Pratchett

I’ve been thinking about this passage a lot lately, with Current Events, and how hard it is to have faith in humanity when humanity can be so… well, so awful sometimes. And how many people have had their faith – in people, in their church, in their families – deeply shaken by the election and the rotten underbelly it exposed. And I keep thinking about that last bit – as soon as you saw people as things to be measured, they didn’t measure up.

And I’m trying to wrap my head around to thinking like this, like Vimes, I suppose: faith in the ultimate goodness of humanity is a good thing, but you can’t expect it of people. Believing that people can be better than they are means that you have to accept how people are in the first place. And you have to accept that most of them are not going to live up to your ideal. And you have to believe in them anyway – because so often people just need someone to believe in them in order to rise, and because you have to in order to stay sane, and at the bottom of it, because somebody has to believe in us or we’ll never move an inch.

Keep reading

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.  If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.  Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

~ 1 Corinthians 13:1-7 {NLT}

This is it.  Play the Boyz to Men song – I’ve come to the end of the road.  This is the final chapter, the last hurrah – I’m working on the bazooka for Savitar with Killer Frost lurking nearby - and I know what this all means.  I am a dead man.  There’s no coming back from this alive.  Everything hurts including my heart.  I don’t even know what to do or where to begin so, I’m going to say by goodbyes in hopes that when Barry beats Savitar once and for all (I know you can, Barry!) he’ll find this and tell everyone goodbye for me.

First to my mom, I have to get something off my chest – I lied to you when I said I liked your meat stew. I’m sorry, Mom, I didn’t want to hurt your feelings since you spent all day cooking it but it is not my favorite meal.  Not even close.  I hope you can smile knowing this after how many times you have made it for me thinking it was my favorite – I did it because I love you.  Please continue to cook and laugh because that is what makes you the best mom.

To Team Flash – you all are my family, my heart, my soul – you have picked me up when I was down and have always been there for me.  Being your teammate, your friend, and your brother has been the greatest honor. Keep carrying on without me – just don’t let H.R. name the bad guys.  For that I defer to Julian, as annoying and arrogant as he is – the guy actually has a great funny bone.  And to Barry – never stop running, never stop being who you are.  Always, always keep the faith alive.  

I hear footsteps – Killer Frost is coming back to check in on me and the bazooka – welp, it’s been real. Live long and prosper friends, it’s been real!  Over and out.

HOW DB5K MET EACH OTHER. 💕 (story)

2006.04.14


I’m really curious, so I’m wondering if there is someone who knows it..

Who was the last person to be chosen as TVXQ member?

Answer:

· Xiah Junsu
· Uknow Yunho
· Hero Jaejoong
· Max Changmin
· Micky Yoochun

It’s like this^^;

There’s no last person that was chosen.
It was done together;;
But Micky-gun was from overseas,
so it’s like he’s the last;

This is the story of how the five met each other.

The meeting of people is really mysterious.
Sometimes, one meeting can show the power of changing destiny.
That, is a part of someone’s own life – it’s not about being able to know the future, but about “that” coming closer suddenly.
Receiving the life given by God, from the moment you were born in this world and took your first step,
Until that moment your heart beats its last beat and you taking your last breath,
While recalling your encounters with people, you’re moving one step ahead.

TVXQ - the birth of a group that carries the meaning of “Rising Gods of the East,”
On the meeting of these five, I think that there was a big change in their own fate and the people related to them.
Undoubtedly, their meeting shined brightly to the extent that even God was shaken.

Jan. 26, 1986, Jaejoong was born as the youngest of nine siblings;
On the same year of 1986 in February, Yunho was born as the oldest of the “Jung”;
Yoochun who was born on June 4, 1986 in Korea, but lived in America because of his father’s work;
Junsu who was born as the youngest of twins on January 1, 1987;
And on February 18, 1988 with a two-year age difference with Jaejoong and Yunho, Changmin was born.
Becoming colleagues who will be soaring high towards one goal as the same group in the future
You can’t think that such exists in this world,
But each life of these men is starting now.

Their first meeting was when they were trainees of the same company.
Anong the members, Junsu was the very first one to become a trainee.
Junsu auditioned formally in the Starlight Casting System and was scouted after his abilities were acknowledged.
He became a trainee on October 3, 1999.
During that time, there were a lot of female trainees, so Junsu received dance and singing lessons with female idol trainees.

And in December 2000, Yunho entered the company after ranking first in the dance category of “1st SM Best Competition.”

My meeting with Junsu was in January 2001, around one month after I entered the company. There was a test every week to check your development in dancing or singing, so it was that time. 」 (Yunho)

As there were no male trainees, they first saw each other at that place
Junsu and Yunho talked and became on familiar terms with each other.

I was really glad when I met Yunho. I remember being so amazed because he was very good at dancing. From the time we first met each other, we (always) played together.」 (Junsu)

From that time, Yunho frequently went to Junsu’s house, and they started becoming like family to each other.
And in September 2001, Jaejoong entered the company as a trainee after being selected as first in the best style category of “2nd SM Best Competition.”

I met Yunho and Junsu for the first time when I entered the company. It was around December 2001. I was surprised because my impression of Junsu was that he was very innocent and someone who sang really well. Yunho’s dancing was very impressive too and he was charismatic. Because I went to Seoul alone, because I was very nervous,
When I met them, I was very happy that I ended up on being in good terms with them.
」 (Jaejoong)

Starting that time, even when outside the company, the three of them ended up being together most of the time,
Jaejoong used honorifics with the charismatic Yunho for a year because he thought that he was a year older than him,
And thought that he was of the same age as Junsu.

Yunho’s charisma was really, really amazing. Jaejoong had thought that he was the same age as me, so I talked to Yunho in honorifics and to Jaejoong in informal language. (laughs) But after about a year, I learned that Jaejoong and Yunho have the same age, so I started talking to Jaejoong in honorifics, too. (Laughs) 」 (Junsu)

Their stories like this, good relationship, and respecting each other – we can know that a good relationship was being built.

And, the next to join the company was Changmin.
In 2002 at the “3rd SM Best Competition,” he won as the strongest for being chosen as first in both grand prize and best singing category.

Jaejoong was the first person I met when I joined the company. Because Jaejoong’s charisma was very strong, I had the impression that he was unapproachable. When we brushed against each other on the stairs of the company, before anything else, Jaejoong spoke kindly to me. Also, Junsu is still the same now. I felt comfortable because he greeted me lively with a bright expression. Same with Yunho, as his impression was imposing, I became nervous a little bit.」 (Changmin)

Despite the first impressions of Changmin when he saw Jaejoong with Yunho and Junsu,
he was considered young among the trainees and was like the “angel.”
While divided into different groups, they spent their trainee days like that.
Junsu was in a three-membered group with two of the Super Junior members;
Yunho and Jaejoong were in the same three-membered group together with one member of Super Junior;
And Changmin repeatedly had intensive lessons as a solo (singer).

With the groups formed already, they constantly talked about debuting and when that time came,
Junsu, Yunho, Jaejoong, and Changmin were all called to a salon on the same day.
Since they all had lessons with their each group,
Because they didn’t even think that they would debut in the same group,
When they saw each other again in the salon,
They couldn’t imagine how they ended up being there together.
And at that place, it was not just the four of them because another trainee was called to come out. It was Yoochun.

Yoochun who was awarded with the 2001 American Grand Prize and went back to Korea from America
It was April 2003 when he just joined the company.

Because I just came back from America, I didn’t really have any friends. When I was alone at the park in the dorm’s neighborhood, Yunho talked to me and Jaejoong introduced himself, foo. As I felt the strong charisma of these two people, I remember being filled with anxiety as I said “I’ll work hard and do well here…?” in one breath.」 (Yoochun)

And July 29, 2003. On this very day, it was the fated day when the five would see each other for the first time.
Since a project called “ TVXQ” was going to start, Jaejoong, Yunho, Junsu, Changmin, and Yoochun were gathered for the first time.
That’s right. To Yoochun, it was a sudden event that took place in just three months of entering the company. 

I clearly remember all the members on that day. For me, I met Yoochun for the first time at that salon.」 (Junsu)

I was called to the salon. I heard that there will be a new project, but because it was not the members whom I always had practiced with, I didn’t really know if what happened.」 (Jaejoong)

The five of them were called the “Dream team” starting on that day. They ended up having dance, singing, and acting lessons with each other every day, so they started living in the company dorm together.

From 10 a.m. until 10 p.m., we had lessons every single day for about 10 hours. The five of us had come together and because the time left until our debut was very short,
Because we wanted to have the skill of being attuned to one another, and not being embarrassed of standing in front of people,
Even when we all go home, we continue having our own practices until the middle of the night.
」 (Yunho)

Day by day, the unity of the five had solidified.
These five strongly wanted to be the big scale group that didn’t exist that time.
Those five, it was winter of 2003 when they formally heard that they’re going to debut.
And on December 2, 2003, they were told that their name would be “동방신기 (TVXQ).”

Now, I really love our name, but honestly, when I first heard that our name would be “동방신기 (TVXQ),” I was a bit embarrassed.
I love its meaning of “Rising Gods of the East,” but those coined words were not familiar to my ears, so it sounded weird until I got used to it.
I remember being embarrassed of that. (laughs)
」 (Changmin)
