This is the most determined thing I’ve ever made in the beginning of 2015. I join Blogger English Club (BEC)! Oh my God, could I survive in completing all those challenges? Could I keep posting an English articles every Friday? Hahahaa… Time will tell. 🙂
As Dani said, the theme for today’s BEC challenge is… What is your word for 2015?!
Instead of resolution, the word can be your theme for the year, anything you plan this year may (or may not) based on the spirit of the word.
Uhhhmmm *thinking*. Well, frankly speaking, I have no ideas about what is my 2015 theme. I’m not the one that always come up with a list of targets, resolutions, what-so-ever, I’m not a detailed person. I just do what I want to do, I just say what I want to say… Like previous years, I just try living my life normally, seize the day, enjoy the moment, wait… it’s like… Carpe Diem?
Yup. That’s how I should make my day!
“Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.”
― Anthony Robbins
Well said, Robbins! Life recently drive some people become more ambitious. We want these, we want those, we want everything in this world! Unfortunately, we’re getting nowhere, because we have lot of dreams, but lack of skills or passion for getting those things. It’s getting worse, because for the sake of fulfilling our ambitions, we totally forget “our heaven” in this world. Working hard for getting more money, going to get some overtime schedules to boost up our working-performance, and… we forget that our family needs us. Our kids really need our presence. In terms of quality and amount. So sad, eh?
Well, I’m not going to judge anyone. I just wanna make a #selftalk. My kid often complaining why I’m so hectic and so happy while working with the gadget; but rare to TALK with him?
“A real talks, not just ‘How was your day? What’s your homework?’ I want mommy chat with me. Let’s chatting, in this real world,” Sidqi says, slap me right in my heart 😦
So, let’s do something better this year. Instead of (always) having busy with all the achievements-things, I’d like to become “a real person”. Always mingle with a real families, having better interactions with real friends, and of course, this is the hardest: stop complaining about the “bad” things. Bad in quote-in-quote, because sometimes, our “bad” is “good” based on God’s scenario.
“But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” (QS Al-Baqoroh 216)
Sooo, cheer up! Enjoy the moments, feel the breeze, capture the joyful things, share the happiness, and welcome 2015…! Be nice to us…! Have a GREAT YEAR, everyone…!
