Be Myself..

And here I am,
right here in the place where I belong,
it’s a life with a beating of young heart
..

Saya masih ingat “kesan” yang muncul ketika pertama kali mendengar puisi ini. Waktu itu saya baru masuk kuliah & baru resmi berubah status menjadi mahasiswa. Sepertinya baru kemaren, namun ketika dibaca lagi, segala motivasi, harapan, & idealisme dari dalam diri itu masih membekas kuat.


MENJADI KARANG, meski tidak mudah.
Sebab ia akan menahan sengat binar mentari yang garang.
Sebab ia akan kukuh halangi deru ombak yang  menerpa tanpa kenal lelah.
Sebab ia akan menahan hempas badai yang datang menggerus terus-menerus dan coba melemahkan keteguhannya.
Sebab ia akan kokohkan diri agar tak mudah hancur dan terbawa arus.

MENJADI POHON yang tinggi menjulang, meski itu tidak mudah.
Sebab ia akan tatap tegar bara mentari yang terus menyala setiap siangnya.
Sebab ia akan meliuk halangi angin yang bertiup kasar.
Sebab ia akan terus menjejak bumi hadapi gemuruh sang petir.
Sebab ia akan hujamkan akar yang kuat untuk menopang.
Sebab ia akan menahan gempita hujan yang coba merubuhkan.
Sebab ia akan memberikan buah yang manis dan mengenyangkan.
Sebab ia akan berikan tempat bernaung bagi yang singgah di dahannya.
Sebab ia akan berikan tempat berlindung dengan rindang daun-daunnya.

MENJADI ELANG , dengan segala kejantanannya, meski itu juga tidak mudah.
Sebab ia harus melayang tinggi menembus birunya langit.
Sebab ia harus melanglang buana untuk mengenal medannya.
Sebab ia harus melawan angin yang menerpa dari segala penjuru.
Sebab ia harus mengangkasa jauh tanpa takut jatuh.
Sebab ia harus kembali ke sarang dengan makanan di paruhnya.
Sebab ia harus menukik tajam mencengkeram mangsa.
Sebab ia harus menjelajah cakrawala dengan kepak sayap yang membentang gagah.

MENJADI MELATI, meski tampak tak bermakna.
Sebab ia akan tebar harum wewangian tanpa meminta balasan.
Sebab ia tak takut hadapi angin dengan mungil tubuhnya.
Sebab ia tak ragu hadapi hujan yang membuatnya basah.
Sebab ia tak pernah iri melihat mawar yang merekah segar.
Sebab ia tak pernah malu pada bunga matahari yang menjulang tinggi.
Sebab ia tak pernah rendah diri pada anggrek yang anggun.
Sebab ia tak pernah dengki pada tulip yang berwarna-warni.
Sebab ia tak gentar layu karena pahami hakikat hidupnya.

Best Quotes “How I Met Your Mother”


Man, when I have kids,
and I’ll tell them how I met their mother,
I’m gonna tell them everything, the whole damn story..
(~Ted)


Wow, this is my 100th post finally. I am still amazed at how far my personal page have been developed, which began with such humble expectations. To be honest, I’m writing here during my spare  alone time. Looking at back about posts that I’ve written, the more I realized how much my self has changed.

Usually, the tradition is “list 100 things about you”, but I have different opinion. I just want to write the quotes from my favorite Serial TV, where I grow up around them since three years ago. Those quotes are so related to me, and little bit also describe “things about me”. And, this quote from “How I Met Your Mother”, marks my 100th post. If you watched this Serial TV, you’ll know which scene from these quotes below.


About Love of My Life
Look, I know that odds are, the love of my life isn’t gonna magically walk through that door.. But, this seems as nice a spot as any to just, you know, sit and wait for a while, preparing myself at the same time..
(~Ted)

It just felt nice actually. Where we can sit together just the two of us, and have a good casual conversation, with no intention of hidden “agenda”.. (~Ted to Robin)

Okay, I’m gonna say something out loud that I’ve been doing a pretty good job of not saying out loud lately. I’ve seen two people’s in love and really connected, and what I know what they had, I want that.. I do… I keep waiting for it to happen, and waiting for it to happen, and…I guess I’m just, um… I’m tired of waiting.. And that is all I’m going to say on that subject.. (~Ted)

I know that you’re tired of waiting, and you may have to wait a little while more, but she’s on her way, Ted. And she’s getting here as fast as she can.. (~Stella advise Ted)

I took a long walk that night. I thought about how opening myself up to another person usually means opening myself up to going a little crazy. I thought about how much easier it was just to be alone… (~Robin)

When it comes to love, the best relationships are the ones that just come naturally. I think that’s how it’s supposed to be. Have natural fun, and easy, and simple or uncomplicated. Because at some level, with the right person it has just to be easy. Looking at that girl and knowing she’s all you really want out of life, that should be the easiest thing in the world… (~Ted)

If..


by : Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you,
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise..

If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,
If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same,
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ‘em up with worn-out tools..

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss,
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son!

Self Awareness..

self-awareness1


For every being cursed with self-awareness,
there remains the unanswerable question:
Who am I?
How do I “connect” with others?
There are nearly seven billion people on this planet.
Each one, unique, different.

We struggle to find meaningful connections to one another.
Maybe, We are the caring friend…
or, The loving father…
The doting mother…
The protected child…

We fight and we love in the hope that somehow,
together, we can understand our significance in the universe..

But in the end, no one can share our burden.
Each of us alone must answer the question…
“Who am I?”
“What does it mean to be alive?”

And in the vast infinity of time,
“how do I matter?”


This quote is from Heroes 3rd Season Eps 24.. This quote strikes me at some points. Yeah, of course about myself, my future, and my world. By my world, it means, my faith & believe to God, my family that I’m really grateful, my friendship circle with easy judging attitude, my job that makes me struggle to understand, or, wondering the girl that I can introduce as my wife someday.. And, how do I matter for all..??

It’s just sometimes…


Sometimes, we’re tending to judge other’s choice,
without seeing their view or their condition for possible reason…

Sometimes, we’re often thinking only others that is wrong,
just based on our personal preference..
And forgot, perhaps, they have more wisdom than us..

Sometimes, when we make a mistake, we said that is “sorry”,
And not noticed, if others make a mistake, we said they’re fool..

Sometimes, we remember people just based on a single mistake,
And forgot them based on their many good things..

Sometimes, We’re proud to watch “the movie” of our wonderful achievement,
and forgot that the only people that watched is just ourself..

Then, I realized that I can find the good in everybody,
if I just give them a chance, the benefit of the doubt..

Because, Sometimes people dissapoint you, Sometimes they surprise you…
But, you never really get to know them until you listen for what’s in their hearts..

Just in My Mind, though…

Wondering Alone...

People are lonely in this world for lots of different reason.
Some people have something in their disposition.
Maybe they were just born too mean,
or maybe they were born too tender…

But, most people are brought to where they are
by circumstance, by calamity, or a broken heart,
or something else happening in their lives
that wasn’t anything they planned on..
