I’ve never been a fan of someone like how I adore this man, really. People asked my ‘why?’ and I was just like, ‘I don’t know’ and went for some non-sense things. I was never able to explain everything, until I got these photos last night and got my eyes staring at them for minutes straight.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not that kind of fan who goes, “Oh my gosh, David, marry me marry meeee!”. If you think I seriously am falling in love with him, then you’re wrong. Once again, I actually never know how to describe this in a right way, but there is one thing that I’m sure about: I truly respect and adore him.
Reasons why I’m a fan (Warning! Some parts may sound cheesy):
1. I never knew someone with such a beautiful soul
No, you don’t know him the way the fans do. Neither have you known him the way those people who have met him do.
What kind of world are you living in now? A cruel place, a space where everything is fake, a planet where bunch of things don’t go the way it should be and where people do things they shouldn’t do? His presence keeps me believing that good people DO STILL EXIST. I always am amazed of what he does; his perspective of life, belief, faith, and God; and much more indescribable things.
2. He keeps me away from doing bad things
I have a question for you, if you don’t mind: who’s your role model? I mean a person who really inspires you. Mine’s David. I see how a good man he is and I know how his behavior affects me. It’s like when I’m about to do such a bad thing, I’ll be like, “David won’t like it if I do this,” or, “What a shame! David won’t do this if he was me!”
This might sound crazy for you but this keeps me away from doing bad things. Somehow he leads me walking in a straight road.
3. He encourages me to bounce back when I get tossed around
He lifts me up in so many ways when I’m down. How does he do that? MUSIC, people! I really thank God for the fact that he’s doing music and he will be doing music for the rest of his life. Some songs just make me feel good and some song really boost my power. Let me quote some of my favorite lines of his songs.
I might get tossed around but I’m always bouncing back. I could give up, I could stay stuck, or I could move on. So I put one foot front of the other. No no no, nothing’s gonna break my stride. I’ll keep climbing gonna keep fighting until I make it to the other side of down.– The Other Side of Down
Cause I don’t always get everything I wanted. It doesn’t turn out just the way I thought it all should be. Baby, I can’t complain. ……Any time any minute now, we could fall, it could all crash down. But I’m not gonna ever live that way.- Complain
4. Such a wise man he is
Reading his book titled Chords of Strength made me realized about how thoughtful and wise he is. If you haven’t read it, now I’m telling you, YOU HAVE TO! Another quotations, these are from the book:
I believe the only true measure of success is knowing that at each moment, you’re living your life to its fullest.Page 217
I prefer to think that happiness is always there, and that when things don’t go the way we might like them to, it’s a sign from above that something even better is right around the corner.Page 146
And a lot more!
5. The way he sounds
The truth is, I’m in love with his voice. I always think it soothes me every time. I love his voice SO MUCH!
So I decided to stop it here cause if I don’t, it’s going to be a super long post. After all the things I know about him, his look is just a bonus. And if I have to wrap all the points I wrote, I might end up saying, “It’s like he’s heaven sent.” :)
