Good morning! Rise and shine! xD
Today, Kris updated his status on RenRen at 06:15 (CST) and left a lovely message for all his dear friends.
I miss you, I really do. Waiting is painful but it can also be a blessing in disguise. Face every new day bravely, my dear, I will always be around. Good morning to each and every one of you that I will always like, and will never leave behind. — (Translated by: maknaesehun.tumblr.com)
There are multiple translations of Kris‘ status update with slight variations. For instance, I have seen the words, “will never leave behind,” as “can’t let go,” and, “to each and every one of you,” as “my every you,” aka “mei ge ni.” I knew about the nickname, “Mei Ge Ni” that Kris‘ fans/friends in China use for themselves, when I went for his birthday gathering here, which was organized by Baidu Wu Yi Fan (Kris) Bar.
Kris‘ good morning message is the most heart-warming good morning message that I’ve ever seen from a public figure. I read it about 10 times or more… I don’t know why I read Kris‘ messages very carefully and slowly, and not to mention, several times. Hahaha! All I know is that, my mood is much better after reading his latest message, because I wasn’t feeling too well in the morning. On top of that, all of my friends are busy on a weekend. I was about to head out alone to the city by bus, because I wanted to go to the bookstore, Kinokuniya, and enjoy the nice weather, until I decided that I should stay back and wait until I feel better.
“Waiting is painful but it can also be a blessing in disguise.”
When I read these words, I suddenly remembered what Muslims, Christians, and everyone in general should be practicing…and that is patience. “Verily man is in loss, except such as have faith, and do righteous deeds, and join together in the mutual enjoining of truth, and of patience and constancy.” (Qur’an – 103:2-3). For those that are patient, for them their rewards are doubled. Sometimes I become very impatient, particularly these days, and this is a good reminder for me!
Furthermore, Kris makes his messages sound so personal and emotional…as if he is directly speaking to each and every one of his friends. He has a way with words. Though, I suddenly remembered the tragic scene from Titanic when I read, “can’t let go,” in his message. xD
Kris misses us, but the reality is that we miss him more!
P.S. I put Kris‘ message as my status update on Facebook, with quotation marks (of course), and my friends and family members that have no idea about EXO or Kris are liking it. =P I guess everyone can connect to Kris‘ lovely message. ^^
