A very Happy New Year from Fuzzable! As we all set our feet into a new decade, we must hold on to the lessons learned in the past and make the most out of 2020. A decade is a very long period for one’s consideration. Therefore, it is important to pat yourself on the back for making it through these ten years. No matter what you aim to do in your life now, remember that we all have the potential to make our dreams come true. To motivate you for your new journey, we have compiled ten quotes from BTS.
The South Korean septet celebrated this New Year by performing at New Year Rockin’ Eve and while they left the audiences mesmerized, we need to remember their own journey as they achieved this major feat. Starting from the bottom, the group has made music their personal journal as they shared their struggles and lessons with their listeners and today, we have a list of songs that not only offer commentary on the lives we lead but also motivate us to live through our struggles while loving ourselves. Hope you will enjoy our compilation:
RM’s Speech at the UN’s Generation Unlimited Summit
“Maybe I made a mistake yesterday, but yesterday’s me is still me. I am who I am today, with all my faults. Tomorrow I might be a tiny bit wiser, and that’s me, too. These faults and mistakes are what I am, making up the brightest stars in the constellation of my life. I have come to love myself for who I was, who I am, and who I hope to become.”
Self-love today has become a task. As we fight to defy the societal standards and established norms, we need to learn to embrace our faults and flaws. This helps us establish accountability in our actions and work towards self-improvement.
RM’s Meaning of the term “Future”
In Korean, the word ‘future’ is made up of two parts. The first part means ‘not,’ and the second means ‘to come.’ In that sense, ‘future’ means something that will not come. This is to say the future is now, and our now is us living our future.
We all work hard in the hope of making a successful ‘future’ and while there is nothing wrong with our aspiration, we often forget to appreciate the present moment. As new decade unfolds, we must learn to appreciate what we have now and make most out of it so that when we grow old, we are able to impart that satisfaction to our future generations.
Even if you collapse oh don’t run back never
Because the dawn right before the sunrise is the darkest,
you, in the future, never forget yourself of now
Wherever you’re standing right now, you’re just taking a short break
Don’t give up, you know it
With a new day, year, and the decade, you will encounter new obstacles. No matter how hard it gets, just remember why you started your journey in the first place. Take a break, give yourself some rest and when you are ready to fight again, lead your battle with the strength of an elephant.
It won’t be easy, but have this engraved in your heart
If you think you’re gonna crash, accelerate even harder, you idiot
No matter how thorny the road is, run
Never Mind, Never Mind
There’re a lot of things in the world that you can’t control
You better Never Mind, Never Mind
Uncontrollable forces, external comments, and demotivating reviews might inhibit your pursuit but always remind yourself that one starts something because of their love for it and not because of the love they get for doing it. Pay attention to the constructive criticism for improvement and don’t mind the naysayers!
to have an unconditional faith
It’s time to be brave
I’m not afraid
because I believe in myself
because I’m different from before
I won’t cry going down the path I chose
and I won’t hang my head low
because I’ll be in the sky
Witnessing transformation through 10 years challenge might seem like participating in a passing trend but through this campaign, we got to see some amazing moments. Every year brings new opportunities therefore, it is important to be courageous and take the leap of faith. It will be worth it!
I’m the one I should love in this world
The shining me, the precious soul of mine
So I love me
I realize only now, so I love me
Though I’m not perfect, I’m so beautiful
The key to spreading love among others is to first love one’s own self. If you cannot practice what you aim to preach, then, the words end up becoming a cacophony.
It’s okay to pause
There’s no need to run without knowing the reason
It’s okay not to have a dream
as long as there are your moments to briefly feel happiness
The world has no right to curse at me
It never has even taught me how to dream
Our achievements and failures are always judged through others while undermines our distinct perceptions towards our life. Under the garb of healthy competition, this world has indeed pitted us against each other whereas our real contender must be just ourselves. Also, as we enter a new decade, we must learn that there is no single definition of “dream”. You can dream of buying a sketchbook or becoming a CEO and both of them hold equal significance.
In one person, there is one history
In one person, there is one star
Shining with 7 billion lights,
7 billion worlds
7 billion lives, the night scenery of a city is
perhaps the night scenery of another city
Let us shine
The dream of one’s own, let us shine
You shine brighter than anyone
We all come with our own stories. While you must work hard to love yourself, be considerate towards others too. Respect people for the choices they make, without judgment. Like Harry Styles says, let’s treat people with kindness.
It’s okay to shed the tears
But don’t you tear yourself
Moonchild, you shine
When you rise, it’s your time
This one is for the introverts and nocturnals. One of the first series of articles released on the website talked about the life of an introvert. As RM and Fall Out Boys share in their song “Champion”, the achievement for anyone would be to just make it through and the best reward would be to make it as one wants it to be. We must not be afraid of shedding tears and taking a pause and must not feel ashamed of our personalities.
The list is not finite. There are a lot of quotes that can be added to the series. Why not share some? Tell us your favorite lyric/quote from people you look up to. Use @Fuzzable on Twitter!
