The Little Things I’m Happy About

Posted on: October 29, 2016

People says that happiness comes from the little things and lately I find it definitely true! You don’t need to have a big reason in life just to be happy.

To me, in the past one month, happiness was when I…

  1. Received a voice note from my nephew after one long day at work;
  2. Met a pleasant taxi or Uber driver and had a nice chat along the trip;
  3. Ordered a mineral water from a Gojek driver (it’s only because I’m too lazy to walk to the pantry upstairs, hehehehe) but apparently, the café only sold the food. Then the driver went somewhere else just to buy the water for me (without being asked!);
  4. Met an old friend’s Mom and she said that I looked 5 years younger than I was, hehehehe;
  5. My friend’s son called me “the pretty Aunty” 😉
  6. My best friend asked her boyfriend if he knew someone potential to be my date (she hasn’t got one but I appreciate the effort, seriously, hehehehe);
  7. Planned a birthday bash next month and a few friends helped to connect me with some contacts to make it happen;
  8. Had new lunch mates (I have known them for a while though) and we had a couple of good laughs during the meals;
  9. Bought a pretty dress with size M (because it was the last size remained) and my Aunty offered to fix the size for me, and for free, hehehehe;
  10. One of my ex-best employees told me that she had returned to Jakarta and she was interested to join my team again!
  11. My birthday is one month away but I already received two gifts from my friends;
  12. Had a bad day and an office mate offered to have coffee and chat at 24 hours café. We went home at 2 AM and I felt a lot better;
  13. My sister was so pissed when I was hurt. I just knew that no matter what happened, I would always have someone in my corner;
  14. Sleep tight and eat a lot! My appetite is back!
  15. Received a few texts from my friends asking if things got better recently. Their texts have made my days better already 🙂

I have a lot of problems, I know, but I also have a lot more blessings to celebrate.

Wish you all a wonderful weekend!

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.
