"Little Things"

"Your hand fits in mine like it's made just for me but bear this in mind it was meant to be and I'm joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks and it all makes sense to me"
I still find myself in the state of waiting when I speak of LOVE. I guess, I prefer to wait than to seek, to look straight than to look around. For some people, they may think, it's sad. Honestly it is, sometimes we feel a black hole somewhere in the corner of our heart and sucks out all the bliss existing in our body. However, in the presence of this black hole, I always remind myself that there are a lot of reasons to be happy in life. There are a lot of reasons to smile about and most importantly, there are more important things to focus on. It is just a matter of how we live that determines how much happiness we get. I let each day pass bringing that thought with me all the time to help me keep moving.

"I know you've never loved the crinkles by your eyes when you smile, you've never loved your stomach or your thighs the dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine but I'll love them endlessly"

     I am not a big fan of 'One Direction' but a week ago, I was watching the results night of X-Factor USA and they performed one of their songs entitled 'Little Things'. The mellow sound caught my ears. At first, I couldn't make up the lyrics of the song. However, as the song went on, some of the lines were clear enough for me to understand. Right then and there, I knew what the song means and despite the apparent fact that I am single, I felt like I was in love. It is the kind of song that I would sing for someone very special.

"I won't let this little things slip out of my mouth but If I do, it's you, oh it's you, they add up to I'm in love with you and all these little things"
Some people dress up too much just to get the attention of their crush. They get themselves entangled with antics just to get a simple hi or hello. Some of them would go too far without realizing that they're already losing so much of their true identity. Some may be aware how they're turning out to be but they're willing to change everything just to be with the person they love. Others rush in too quickly to fall in love and before they know it, they find themselves OUT of love.

"You can't go to bed without a cup of tea maybe that's the reason that you talk in your sleep and all those conversations are the secrets that I keep, though it makes no sense to me"
This song of narrates a story of a guy who loves unconditionally. He loves regardless of the flaws he sees. He loves regardless of his partner's insecurities. He loves regardless of his partners imperfections. Most importantly, despite the presence of shortcomings and senseless actions of his partner, he loves her deeply and genuinely. He doesn't tell his partner to lose weight, to go through a plastic surgery just to get rid of the freckles on her face or the pimples that continue to inhabit her face. He loves his partner for who she is and doesn't complain for what she's not. He doesn't see imperfection. Through his eyes, she's already perfect.
"I know you've never loved the sound of your voice on tape. You never want to know how much you weigh. You still have to squeeze into your jeans but you're perfect to me
I won't let this little things slip out of my mouth but if it's true, it's you, it's you, they add up to. I'm in love with you and all these little things"
I guess, what I'm trying to say is that, first, this song reminds me to never change who I am as a person. I should never change the REAL me just to give way for someone to love me. True love cannot be forced. True love comes naturally. Second, is to never try to change the person you are with. The reason why true love came between the both of you is because of the true person that you are within.
"You never love yourself half as much as I love you You'll never treat yourself right darling but I want you toIf I let you know, I'm here for you maybe you'll love yourself like I love you oh"
For those who have already found the love of their life, love one another unconditionally. Never try to change each other but accept each other instead. And for the single ones out there (including myself), PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE.

I suggest you give this song a try and you may probably like it.
