The Place I Belong

OneRepublic - Counting Stars. Play video for lyrics.

I just re-listened to this song thoroughly today, and realized that this is the theme song to my career turning point :)

Yes, I feel like I’ve given up a lot for the work I’m doing right now, but I think it’s totally worth it. I feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be. I’m in the best job I can possibly be in :)

It’s My Life

It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I’m alive

It’s my life
My heart is like an open highway
Like Franklin said, “I did it my way”
I just wanna live while I’m alive

Bon Jovi – It’s My Life

Lagu ini masih terus terngiang-ngiang di kepala gue sampe saat ini, tetapi itu nggak bikin gue kesel (seperti mungkin umumnya lagu yang terngiang-ngiang di pikiran), justru bikin gue lebih semangat :)

Ya, baru dalam 4 hari kebelakang ini gue bener-bener mendalami lirik lagu ini, dan meresapi maknanya. Ini hidup gue. Hidup gue adanya sekarang; nanti, besok, lusa, siapa yang tahu? Only Allah knows. Gue punya pilihan untuk menentukan hidup gue. Mau seperti apa? Mau dibawa kemana?

Dan ternyata gue udah pernah menulis tentang pilihan loh di sini. (Baru nyadar, hahaha. Terus sekarang nulis apa dong yah.)

Oh, iya. Kalau gitu sekarang gue nulis tentang kesadaran deh. Bahasa kerennya (eh, Bahasa Inggrisnya ding) sih awareness.

Apa itu awareness? Awareness adalah kesadaran. (Lah, dibolak-balik doang.)

What Do People Thank You For?

What do you love helping people with? What would you be happy and excited to help others with even if you didn’t get paid?

I love helping people in getting information, knowledge, insights, anything.

I love helping people to get to know what they didn’t know.

I love helping people opening up their mind, enriching their knowledge.

I love helping people to see from other perspectives.

I love helping people to be aware of theirselves, their lifes.

I love helping people to speak up their mind, their heart, their ideas, their feelings.

I love helping people to listen to them.

I love helping people to feel better about themselves, about their lives.

I would be happy to help them with it.

And they usually thank me for that. :)

Had such a fun quality time with my best friend, Matahari Indonesia, last weekend. Went to Bandung to keep her company since she couldn’t come home on Ied. Can’t describe in words how happy and excited I was. Enough said. :)

Went window shopping with my BFF. Something I never imagined I’d finally do.

Bought a pair of these.. Ain’t they cute? :3

More happiness! Read some more!
