Destiny is a pretty big concept..
Where you are in life, how you got there,
what would have happened if one thing or another had been different..
Well, It’s funny looking back at those days,
knowing now exactly what I am heading towards,
and what heading towards me..
Well, today I’m officially 26 years old, and wooooow, this is also my first official post on my new blog. A blog that using my own name as domain. It’s still hard to believe that I can reach this big milestone in my life so far. It’s indeed, my life is really going in a good direction now. I couldn’t be more thankful with everything that comes into me this year. I’ve got everything I’ve been dreamed of since I was kid this year.
To be honest, when I celebrate my 25th birthday last year, I’ve never thought that my life would be changed so much as it like today. I still remember that last year, I was asking myself regarding, “What makes a man who he is? Is it the worst things he’s ever done, or the best things he’s trying so hard to be?”. After I was being able to answer that question, I was ready to accept reality, and starting to begin to be a friend to myself.
But then, every big changes came this year. I’m finally able to take a massive step on my career. Today, at this 26th of age, I have more confident and become accustomed to learning to think bigger.
Because, after what happened this year, I realize now that I don’t want to wake up someday at 65 years of age, sighing over what I should have tried. I just want to do it, be willing to fail, and learn along the way. At least, I’ll give my best shot. At the end of the day, whether I choose to go with it, flow with it, resist it, change it, or hide from it, life will always goes on.
The Big Picture
After this year, now I do understand that our mind is much more powerful than I ever realized. And, combine with the action to do it, the result will be come eventually, sooner or later. The point is, whatever I want to achieve, it all begins in the mind. It’s the engine that’s running and all I have to do is push down the gas pedal and steer away from obstacles in my way.
So, today I’m thinking about the big picture of my own life. Yes, the big picture. It’s essential. Because, I need to understand the context of the situation and how everything fits in. Only then I will be able to assess the situation correctly and, from that, to make the right decision.
This big picture, unfortunately, is not how many people live. Instead, they are so busy with the details of their lives that they can no longer see the big picture. As a result, they tend to just follow the crowd and do what everyone else is doing. Or they just follow their natural inclinations. Obviously, this is not a good way to live.
When I see the big picture of my own life, it helps me to see how my life has been throughout the years. In turn, it help me to make strategic decision for my life. I can find the patterns in my life about my passions, my value, and all things that I do really care about. It gives me a sense on figure out about the right direction to go to.
The Big Picture is All About Life Balance
You see, soemhow, I always got the cliche saying that, money is not important, or what matters most is the time with our family, or quality time is about having good time with your close friends, etc, etc. The thing is, I’m not fond with such those cliche, you know.
Because, in my opinion, life is all about balance. Money is important, but not solely the most important one. I mean, It’s important and nice to have money, and able to purchase all of those things that money can buy, but it’s also important to ensure that we haven’t lost track of things that money can’t buy. Yeah, that’s life balance.
So, the big picture of my life will all go towards the direction of life balance. “What will make me happy?” and “What will make me successful?” are two of the most important questions, but they are, indeed, two different questions.
I’m 26 years old, and yes, a beautiful life is closer than I think. It’s already here…
