The Leap Years


Recently went to catch this movie after many many good reviews by friends...

It's really a very touching and romantic movie... Other than the love story in this movie, I think I saw how the actress (Li Ann - played by Wong Li Ling) fight for her dream, her happiness...

Despite the many objections from her family and friends that the thing she's waiting for is never going to happen, but she waited every 4 years... She insisted on her on dreams, she persisted. I think that's something everyone can learn from. The kind of determination you should have when there are simply too many negative voices around you.

Believe in your dreams. Hold on to your dreams. For no one other than yourself can give up on your dreams.

In the movie, there's a song called Scar( Stronger for Life) by Corrinne May. And in it, I found the lyrics very very meaningful and its worth sharing! So here I share!




Just want to run
Just want to hide away
Close my eyes to your gaze
Just want to leave
Don’t want to hear them say
“You’re no good at this”

When the world swirls with naysayers
Broken wings and torn pages
The road ahead
Swimming in my tears


Break me open
Tear me down
Into pieces
Broken crumbs
On the ground
You can mould and shape me
In your image
Breathe your life
You know I need it
Scars make us stronger for life

Losing myself
Gaining it back again
Forging strength from weakness
All that I am
All that I’m meant to be
Melting in your hand
Let the world swirl with naysayers
Pickled hearts and sour faces
What is real is what I cannot see

Break me open
Tear me down
Into pieces
Broken crumbs
On the ground
You can mould and shape me
In your image
Breathe your life
You know I need it
Scars make us stronger for life

Cut away
All within me
That won’t bear fruit
Cut away
All within me
Scars make us stronger for life


I dedicate this song to all those who face rejections, objections, conflicts and obstacles in life @ this point. To, those who are at the lowest point in life now. To those who fell down, and need a helping hand up to move along the long journey ahead. And to those who need a pat @ the back.

Remember... What doesn't break you up will make you stronger. Just like this song.

P.s: I learn a new word from this song! Naysayers
