Big people talk about ideas, average people talk about things, small people talk about other people.

Never let anybody’s opinion define who you are. Be free, let go.

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. Sometimes you have to smile, and act like everything is okay, hold back the tears and walk away.

At that moment

And at that moment, somewhere off in the distance, when all we could see only beautiful.

At that moment, at the long hours of tenderness, when you and I are one.

At that moment, summer in Paris, 2011.

Be Grateful

“Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript of a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.
This universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself;
everything that you want,
you are already that.”

― Rumi, Hush, Don’t Say Anything to God: Passionate Poems of Rumi

Your Job Is Not Your Career

Passion is things that you really really love doing. Your passion is your strength. And your strength is not about what you’re good at. It is about what you enjoy the most. It is within you. It is your uniqueness. It is not what you think you will like. It is all about what you feel when you do things. Do what you are, and live in your uniqueness. Try everything, but don’t hold anything back. Enjoy the journey itself. It is all about self-discoveries. Heaven will not ignore sincere effort and true determination.

(Your Job Is Not Your Career – Rene Suhardono)

Self Note

Jangan pernah menyalahkan siapapun, Tuhan, alam, manusia.

Atau apapun, lingkungan, keadaan, kenyataan.

Kalau memang perlu ada yang dipersalahkan, itu adalah dirimu sendiri.
