Saying goodbye to July with lot of burdens.. 😦 Why? First, I still couldn’t believe Fasting Month passed as fast as flash yet still want to enjoy it for longer time.. Second, the end of this month means the end of my holiday anyway huhu.. I need more holidayyyyy !!!!! I need a self-care (lebay bet de ah).. Speaking of self-care, I recently read a post by 9GAG about 12 steps for self care.. This was really good and because something good should be spread, so here we are.. ♥
“So far, about morals, I know only that what is moral is what you feel good after and what is immoral is what you feel bad after.” ~Ernest Hemingway, Death in the Afternoon
Say what you mean and mean what you say because the people that matter don’t mind and the people that mind don’t matter.
Please say goodbye to :
♥ I am always trying to make people happy
♥ It kills me when someone gets upset with me or I disappoint them
Then, just do :
♥ I wish I could go a day without caring what people think of me
♥ I want to be able to be me
I am more precious than just pleasing everyone.. You know why? Because pleasing everyone is impossible.. It’s just pissing me off.. ♥
I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door. ~Marla Gibbs
People will talk bad about you, hate you, rate you, shake you and break you.. So who will speak good about you if it isn’t yourself ? ♥
Never give up on your something you really want. It’s difficult to wait, but more difficult to regret.
Can you help me? NO !
Just say no if you haven’t enough time, haven’t enough energy, haven’t enough money to help people.. Just say no if you are the one who need help !! 😀
Do you mind if I smoke here? YES
Am I disturbing you? YES
The important thing is saying yes sincerely mean YES without any mind later
Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.
To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.
Loving yourself…does not mean being self-absorbed or narcissistic, or disregarding others. Rather it means welcoming yourself as the most honored guest in your own heart, a guest worthy of respect, a lovable companion.
~Malcolm S. Forbes ~Thich Nhat Hanh ~ Margo Anand
We all want to feel like we’re in control of our life and are masters of our destiny.
Think of a time when things started to feel out of control in your life. How did you feel? What did you do?
Did you do everything in your power to regain control, and cling to the little bit of direction you had left?
Many people become consumed with what they can’t control and obsessed with making things different.
If we ever want true emotional well-being and spiritual freedom we have to learn to “let go” of what we can’t control.
When we dwell on what is out of our control, whether something that happened to us in the past, or something we’re awaiting in the future, it prevents us from experiencing the beauty in the moment and having peace of mind.
I zoom out in my mind to a point far enough away and above so that I can see things in my life for what they are. By doing this, I can see from a distance how small and unimportant the situation is in the big scope of the universe. ~Larry Stilts
Mostly of the drama takes place in our own head.. Change our perspective! Sometimes, we are too deep into problems.. Then, forget recognizing it isn’t as dire as it seems.. Remember, when bad thing happens, it will not always this way.. This too, shall pass.. ♥

Once, I saw a random caption said “Mendengar. Merasakan. Dan Menulis” ..
Somehow, I love the way they wrote it.. It’s very simple but indeed so true that we have to listen, to feel upon something..
Did we realize that to listen to someone is very easy but in other way become so hard for some people..Iya, itu sangatlah benar adanya..Enak tidak enak, kita pasti bertemu dengan orang-orang yang tidak mau mendengar.. Baik itu orang yang memang benar-benar tidak mau mendengar dan orang yang sengaja berbicara di saat kita berbicara.. Sama saja intinya mereka tidak mau mendengar.. Ah, rasanya kepala saya mau pecah bertemu orang-orang ini..
Cut peop’s word, not listening..Menurut saya hal-hal seperti itu adalah tombol merah.. Kita kan belajar tata krama, mau tidak mau harus belajar dan menerapkan tata krama bukan? Saya bukan maksud menjadi orang yang sokpaling bertata krama.. Saya hanya ingin menulis lebih kepada pemahaman : mendengar orang lain dengan baik adalah salah satu bagian dari tata krama dasar, basic, pakem..
Try to ask yourself :memang ada komunikasi antara dua orang dan dua-duanya sibuk berbicara.. Itu debat kusir namanya.. Dan enggak ada juga kan komunikasi antara dua orang, terus dua-duanya medengar.. Itu namanya gila.. Yang benar adalah berbicara dan mendengar, lalu mendengar dan berbicara..Balik lagi, tata krama.. Kalau kata bos saya attitude is number one dan saya paham mengapa attitude becomes number one.. It describes you, which then show people how your family have taught you to behave.. Kalau saya tidak rela orang menilai orang tua saya atas apa yang saya lakukan di luar.. Kamu?
“Treat people like you want to be treated”
Saya orang yang mendengar karena saya suka didengar.. Kamu??Jangan sampai menjadi orang yang suka didengar tapi enggan mendengar..Karena kelak orang seperti itu mungkin tidak akan laku lagi di masyarakat.. Become a public enemy.. Mengerikan..
“Tuhan menciptakan satu mulut dan dua telinga agar kita lebih banyak mendengar daripada berbicara” ~ Pepatah Arab
I had reached almost top of Mount Sumbing in Temanggung.. It’s 3000 meters above the sea level.. Di atas sana, sunyi sepi senyap, hampir dapat dipastikan tidak ada kebisingan.. Then, in the moment I kept my mouth shut and tried to listen around, I could hear the wind blow through the grass.. It was so solemn.. Perasaan khidmat luar biasa sampai ingin menangis.. Bersyukur..
Dunia ini sudah terlampau berisik. Tutup mulut dan mendengar. Merasakan. Menulis.
