Don’t Be Too Tired to Be Better

Posted on: August 26, 2016

Akhir-akhir ini, ada beberapa kejadian yang membuat gue ngerasa belum jadi seseorang yang gue inginkan untuk diri gue sendiri. Tiba-tiba, gue sadar dengan sendirinya bahwa gue masih jauh dari good enough.

Apa saja contohnya?

  1. Nge-judge sifat buruk orang lain padahal gue juga memiliki sifat buruk yang tidak jauh beda dengan orang yang gue judge;
  2. Menasehati orang lain di saat sebaiknya gue menasehati diri gue sendiri;
  3. Membenci orang lain atas sesuatu yang juga pernah gue lakukan terhadap orang lainnya;
  4. Merasa jadi korban padahal sebetulnya, gue sendiri yang jadi “penjahatnya”;
  5. Menuduh orang lain sebagai si “Mr. Wrong”, padahal bisa jadi, gue juga si “Ms. Wrong” buat dia.

Saat gue menyadari lima hal di atas, gue mulai terpikir untuk instropeksi lebih dalam lagi. Rasa-rasanya, gue seperti mulai berkaca; seolah melihat sisi jelek diri gue sendiri dalam diri orang lain di depan gue.

Tidak mudah mengubah sifat jelek yang sudah kuat tertanam dalam diri kita sendiri. Tapi konon katanya, awal dari perubahan adalah mengakui bahwa masih sangat banyak hal yang harus kita rubah dalam diri kita ini. Semakin kita merasa yakin bahwa sifat kita sudah sempurna, maka sebenarnya, diri kita justru semakin jauh dari kesempurnaan itu sendiri.

Be better. And never ever be too tired for that.

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.
