My days recently

Leave a comment

Well, before I continue this post, I wanna say that my previous post entitled “A Month” is sooo long ago. Ahahaa.. I mean, I renewed my record, now my longest on job days is 52 days 😉

Okay, back to the topic.. My days recently.. Well, I gotta say I am quite satisfied in completing my ‘to do list on my off days’.

First, I finally took my family to Garut, and showed them my most visited place when I worked in Darajat. We rented a bungalow at Kampung Sumber Alam, the place was awesome. We liked it very much. I had our two days family trip in my facebook albums.

Then, I also finally did my hang out plan with my brofriends. Yap, brofriends! To prevent the multi-meaning of the word boyfriends.. Ahahaha.. Yeah, we went out few times, hung out till morning at mc.d simpang dago, karaoke 2 times, culinary stuffs, movie time.. Ahaha.. That was fun!! Really!!

Well, that two things are my top priority in my to do list. The other things, like buying tamagochi for myself, 2 paulo coelho’s books, and checking my ovariums again through USG check up are also done. No cysts, guys.. Yay. But, I also have pending things to do, like going to dentist, buying glasses, and meni pedi. Ahaha.

But the most important thing for sure, I feel relieved. Yeah.. Whatever it is, I’m happy for this one week off days.. Hohoo

Closing the cycles

Leave a comment

One always has to know when a stage comes to an end. If we insist on staying longer than the necessary time, we lose the happiness and the meaning of the other stages we have to go through.
Closing cycles, shutting doors, ending chapters – whatever name we give it, what matters is to leave in the past the moments of life that have finished.

Did you lose your job? Has a loving relationship come to an end? Did you leave your parents’ house? Gone to live abroad? Has a long-lasting friendship ended all of a sudden? You can spend a long time wondering why this has happened.

You can tell yourself you won’t take another step until you find out why certain things that were so important and so solid in your life have turned into dust, just like that. But such an attitude will be awfully stressing for everyone involved: your parents, your husband or wife, your friends, your children, your sister.
Everyone is finishing chapters, turning over new leaves, getting on with life, and they will all feel bad seeing you at a standstill.

Things pass, and the best we can do is to let them really go away.

That is why it is so important (however painful it may be!) to destroy souvenirs, move, give lots of things away to orphanages, sell or donate the books you have at home.

Everything in this visible world is a manifestation of the invisible world, of what is going on in our hearts – and getting rid of certain memories also means making some room for other memories to take their place.
Let things go. Release them. Detach yourself from them.

Nobody plays this life with marked cards, so sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Do not expect anything in return, do not expect your efforts to be appreciated, your genius to be discovered, your love to be understood.

Stop turning on your emotional television to watch the same program over and over again, the one that shows how much you suffered from a certain loss: that is only poisoning you, nothing else.

Nothing is more dangerous than not accepting love relationships that are broken off, work that is promised but there is no starting date, decisions that are always put off waiting for the “ideal moment.”

Before a new chapter is begun, the old one has to be finished: tell yourself that what has passed will never come back.
Remember that there was a time when you could live without that thing or that person – nothing is irreplaceable, a habit is not a need.
This may sound so obvious, it may even be difficult, but it is very important.

Closing cycles. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because that no longer fits your life.

Shut the door, change the record, clean the house, shake off the dust.

Stop being who you were, and change into who you are.

The planet is stronger than us!!

How can we be so arrogant?
The planet is, was and always will be stronger than us.
We can’t destroy it; if we overstep the mark, the planet will simply erase us from its surface and carry on existing.

Why don’t they start talking about not letting the planet destroy us?
Because “Saving the planet” gives a sense of power, action and nobility.
Whereas “not letting the planet destroy us” might lead us to feelings of despair and impotence, and to a realisation of just how very limited our capabilities are.

Let’s be humble. Let’s respect Mother Earth because if She becomes furious with our behavior, we are in trouble.
