Man In the Mirror

On my way to work as usual, I am switching the radio station back and forth to search for some good songs. Since I need to drive at least an hour to work, nice songs are essential to keep me awake and entertain before I start my day at work.

Without paying too much attention, Michael Jackson's song was playing -- Man In The Mirror. This is not the first time I listened to this song. However, I never pay any attention to its lyrics. In the middle of the song while my mind is running wild, a phrase hit my mind -- "I'm starting with the man in the mirror........ if you want to make this world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change!"

I have been living in the dark cloud lately, almost forget how's the sunny day looks like. As an old saying reminded us, "every dark cloud has it's silver lighting". I think I found this silver lighting.

We are all human beings with different issues to work on. I understand that nobody is perfect, including myself. Instead of asking someone to change to meet my needs, I guess it will be way easier to change myself to be a better person, to make this world a better place.

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change

Most of the time in a fight we always put our focus on other's fault. We are angry because we think other hurts us. Although MJ has already RIP, I still want to thank him for asking me to stand in front of the mirror, and ask the person in the mirror to change!
