A journey to remember

Seperti Apa Rasanya Bahagia?

Posted on: November 19, 2016

Kebahagiaan, setidaknya dalam hidup gue sendiri, datang dalam berbagai bentuk.

Bisa jadi, gue hanya sedang berjalan di tengah keramaian sendirian, atau duduk melamun sendirian, lalu tiba-tiba gue tersenyum dan berujar dalam hati, “Thank God for the life that You give to me!”

Bisa juga jelas terasa saat gue sedang tertawa lebar. Tertawa sampai sakit perut, sampai rahang dan kedua pipi terasa pegal.

Bahagia juga jelas terasa saat gue menceritakan hal-hal baik yang terjadi dalam hidup gue. Kejutan manis dari sahabat dan keluarga, prestasi yang gue dapatkan di dunia kerja, atau, cerita suka-duka saat traveling yang dulu pernah gue lewati.

Bahagia juga terasa meluap tiap kali terlintas di benak gue ide-ide brilian untuk gue jadikan ‘percobaan selanjutnya’. Semangat yang membuncah, rasa tidak sabar untuk segera mulai menjalankan rencana-rencana.

Lalu pada akhirnya, kebahagiaan jelas paling terasa saat mendengar kerja keras gue telah mendatangkan hasil yang nyata. Atau setidaknya, bisa terasa saat gue baru saja melakukan hal-hal yang gue anggap luar biasa. Rasa lega, bangga, puas, dan semua perasaan positif bercampur baur dalam waktu yang bersamaan.

Saat bahagia, gue bisa bercerita tanpa putus. Gue bisa tersenyum sendiri meski sedang tidak ada hal lucu di sekitar gue. Ada pula rasa bahagia yang membuat bulu kuduk gue jadi merinding, hati terasa hangat, dan pikiran terasa damai.

Gue palling menyukai diri gue di saat gue sedang bahagia-bahagianya. Gue jadi lebih lepas. Lebih bisa menerima kekurangan dan kegagalan gue. Jadi lebih ikhlas menerima kenyataan yang sebelumnya gue ingkari. Singkatnya bisa dibilang, rasa bahagia bisa membuat hal-hal sulit jadi terasa lebih mudah untuk gue jalani.

Hidup cuma sekali dan gue ingin berbahagia sebanyak yang gue bisa. Makanya saat gue ulang tahun nanti, daripada mendoakan panjang umurnya, lebih baik doakan selalu bahagia sepanjang hidupnya. Karena buat gue, hidup pendek tapi bermakna dan bahagia akan terasa lebih berharga dari hidup panjang yang sia-sia.

Be happy, and that’s only because you owe that happiness to yourself, after everything that you’ve been through.

Selamat berhari Minggu!

We can’t control whatever life throws at us, but we definitely can control our reaction toward anything that can possibly happen to us.
It’s our decision whether or not we set ourselves free from miseries.
It’s our action that makes our life either colorful or plain boring.
It’s our behavior that leads us to feel merry or lonely.
And it’s certainly our own choices that bring us happiness in life.
Life is too short to be lonely, unhappy, and to be less proud of who we are.
Make the most of every day in your life, be happy with the little and the big things, make your life not only worth living, but also worth to celebrate!
You tell this to yourself, “Happiness starts now!” I’ve been working as a pre-wedding conceptor in past couple of months and I really enjoy seeing how two people so much in love with each other.
With that being said, instead of rushing myself to my own wedding, I’d rather tell myself to take my time. I want my wedding to be a lifetime event, I want this to be something worth fighting for, and for that, I need the right man who also shares the same wishes as mine.
I still have to find someone who clearly tells me what he wants, the one who never makes me have to wonder where he stands, the one who will certainly catch me when I fall. And maybe, it takes times until I find him. But that’s okay! Good things take times, do they? Either you are my friend, enemy, or just somebody I know. The choice is yours.
