Seven Keys to Happiness

Posted on: October 5, 2014

Gue tipe orang yang percaya bahwa kita enggak perlu jadi orang yang paling kaya raya, paling cantik jelita, paling pintar, dan paling segala-galanya hanya untuk jadi bahagia. Being happy for me is NOT that complicated. We don’t need to have everything, and we don’t need to be perfect, just to be happy. 

How do I do thatHere are seven keys of happiness that always work on me. Check them out!

  1. Mendalami hobi. Kenapa gue suka ngeblog? Because it makes me happy, as simple as that. Belum jadi blog yang punya jutaan penggemar aja gue udah happy kok. I enjoy every process of it, from writing until replying the comments (only if it’s nice and necessary), not to mention new friends I get from this blog. For me it’s so much fun!
  2. Mengejar cita-cita. Kata siapa cita-cita itu hanya untuk anak-anak sampai dengan usia remaja? Sometimes, it takes a lifetime to pursue our biggest dream, but that’ okay! Punya cita-cita bikin hidup kita jadi terasa lebih bermakna, less boring, dan tentunya, bikin kita jadi a happier person. Apalagi kalau nanti mimpi itu jadi kenyataan!
  3. Traveling and see the world. Ini sebenernya gabungan antara hobi dan cita-cita sih ya. Mungkin itu yang bikin gue jadi double-happy tiap kali pergi jalan-jalan 😉 Bahkan anehnya ya, meskipun misalnya ada hal-hal yang tidak menyenangkan selama perjalanan, yang namanya traveling selalu bikin gue jadi kepengen lagi dan lagi! How can’t I? Sekedar lihat foto-foto liburan yang muncul di screensaver laptop, atau sekedar menceritakan pengalaman jalan-jalan gue aja udah bisa bikin gue ngerasa happy lagi, hehehehe;
  4. Dress up, mix and match, wearing heels, and put a little make-up. Gue percaya setiap perempuan itu punya kecantikannya sendiri-sendiri, tinggal gimana cara memaksimalkannya aja. Kenapa banyak fashion blogger yang suka posting outfit of the day-nya mereka? Gue percaya bukan untuk pamer, tapi karena hal itu (baca: usaha untuk mempercantik diri dan membagi hasilnya dengan orang lain) bikin mereka ngerasa happy. Lagi-lagi, kita enggak perlu jadi super-fashionable hanya untuk ngerasa happy. Asalkan kita merasa nyaman dan merasa lebih cantik karenanya, maka itu saja sudah lebih dari cukup;
  5. Surround myself with genuine friends. Catat yah… genuine friends. Fake friends enggak masuk hitungan. It feels good to have some friends to call at night when life knocks us down, some friends who really care, who look back into our past and laugh it all together, and some friends who always stay with us in every stage of our lives;
  6. Get rid of toxic people. Definisi toxic people buat gue sederhana aja: jika keberadaan mereka seringkali bikin gue ngerasa luar biasa enggak nyaman, enggak happy, dan bikin gue ngerasa constantly not good enough, maka mereka adalah toxic people versi gue. Someday I’ll write more about this one; dan
  7. Push myself to be better and better than before. Sebagai manusia biasa, gue juga suka lepas kendali. Too proud of my achievements can make me cocky, too stress with my job can make me so mean, and too busy with my life can make me careless. Gue sadar hal-hal apa saja yang harus gue perbaiki, dan saat gue udah berhasil memperbaiki hal tersebut, rasanya tuh puas banget sama diri gue sendiri. I know it’s not an easy thing to do, it’s a never ending process, and people may not be able to see this, but as long as I know that I’m making an improvement, it’s already enough to make me feel good about myself.

Tujuh hal di atas so far udah bikin gue survive di tengah up and down hidup gue ini. When I’m happy with my life, even the most horrible and hardest things in life will feel easier to get through. Menurut gue, sayang banget kalo kita cuma pasrah saja dengan unhappiness yang kita rasakan. Makanya, tiap kali gue mulai ngerasa unhappy secara terus menerus, gue akan coba evaluasi kembali… which key is currently missing?

Find your keys and have a happy life, folks!

I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome! My life has been going great in the past one month. Incredibly busy, but I can’t be happier.
I work my new job during the weekdays and work on my own start-up all over the weekends. It’s tiring and consuming all my energies, but it never feels like a hard work somehow.
I meet many people who are super friendly, I get to work with new challenges that test me every single thing I’ve learned in my entire career, and at the same times, I still manage to pursue my lifetime dream! For the first time ever, I understand how it feels like to love what I do that I never have to work a day in my life.
God, thank YOU for all these blessings! I often said I couldn’t ask for more, yet again, You gave me more and more reasons to be thankful over and over. I’m beyond blessed! Alhamdulillah.
