My Desired First Kiss is Kiss The Baby Sky

Kiss the Baby Sky by Tohoshinki

Link : Youtube

When i first listened to this song, i DIDN’T like it.

When i rethought about it, it might be because i used to listen to Tohoshinki’s strongly heartfelt ballads or their super energetic songs and they are really great on it. It made me rather indifferent toward their mid-tempo songs like this one or Share The World that also came to mind.  In addition, i even had hard time to comprehend the tittle much less the lyrics. [Japanese lyrics + poor brain + poor ear that couldn’t caught  the english rap parts!]. So, bluntly say, i have its Music Video solely for completing my Tohoshinki’s Music Videos collection.

Then, not long ago i watched Yoochun who composed this song reveal that Baby Sky means child’s sky and in advance refer to morning sky, the light of morning, the light of sunrise. To put it simply, this song’s message is encourage to always have hope and keep fighting to achieve it and suddenly i had urge to listen to the song right at that moment and well, i keep repeating it from then on and it has been being one of my must-played song in the morning. The sage word that said “tak kenal maka tak sayang” proved to be true then

I want to reach out to the sky, kiss the blue sky*

I hope nobody freak out on the tittle. As a matter of fact, as self-claimed big dreamer, dream isn’t just kind of a simple goal for me, it’s my fuel, my cheerleader, my strength, and other noun in the same sense as something that keep me alive (in connotative way) and enjoy my life. A friend of mine ever asked me whether dream is something that really important, because he confessed that he didn’t really have any big dream, he live his life solely just doing his daily life and maintaining it in right way. Well, my answer is something that Whitbourne mentioned as typical psycho-babble, “it depends”.

As a nature of Psychology, a single action is built by million factors. Whether you deem dream or high goal as important thing is also defend on so many factors. Two of them that i already figured out are need of achievement level and your contingent self esteem. It is obvious that i have sky high score on need of achievement and achievement is also one of my self esteem contingencies so no wonder i become like this. Like everything else, having high need of achievement also has good and bad side. In positive light, it could make you strive harder and achieve great things but in the other hand, people with high need of achievement is prone to stress caused by their high target, so if you didn’t manage it well, it could be downfall all over. So, it is a matter of choice actually.

I did lie if i said that i didn’t terrified by the pressure to pursue my those big dream. It often overwhelms me and the lure to just live an easy life with simple goal sometimes feel so strong. But, fortunately (or unfortunately?), i know crystal clear that i won’t being happy if i take that easy way, i won’t satissfied, i will be curb on regret. So, no matter how overwhelming this way will be, i know i’ll always choose it. Jojo told me through one of her songs, Fearless,

Cause life is for the fearless
And it’s up to you if you make your beautiful**

This is my way to make my life beautiful . What’s your??

For those who have chosen to be a dreamer. Let me share a little secret,

The theory of goal setting states that there is a positive

linear relationship between a specific high goal and task

performance. Thus, the theory makes explicit that a specific

high goal leads to even higher performance than urging

people to do their best.(Latham & Locke, 2007)
