Allah’s everyday gift for me – 050610

These mornings always left me with thoughts. Mornings filled with stuffed mind. Tak tahu mengapa, tapi selalu memikirkan sesuatu di pagi hari. Pagi hari yang kubuka dengan berpikir. Tepatnya berpikir ulang. Bertanya ulang. What good can I do today? What lesson can I learn today? What do I have to do today? It takes a lot of time to figure it out since I am so not a person of focus. Yes. My mind travels here to there to every direction, x, y, z, etc. After that long journey in my head then I will get the answer. But it’s a bit hard to move my body. My friend said that it was hard to go from zero to one, but when you get to one. It’s way a lot easier to go to two or the next. Seperti dalam buku strategi sukses di kampus, jika malas menghadang, maka bilanglah pada diri bahwa anda hanya akan belajar dalam waktu 5 menit saja. And when you do it for five minutes, you’ll continue to the next 5 five minutes or even more.

But, I did made a move and eventually did something real rather than envisioning it only in my head.

Guess what? Today I learned how to drive a car. Needs patience and practice. Practice is the patience. Patience is the practice.

I went shopping with mum and dad. I thought I that won’t learn to much only by doing this. And I didn’t. But I learned something. My mum still needs plastic bags for our rubbish bin so it’s easier to mobilize. A nice nasi goring kambing is made with extra kaldu. Kaldu didapat dari banyaknya gajih (lemak) kambing itu sendiri. So the Giants nasi goring is awesomely delicious! Mie ayamnya pun enak dan sangat terasa ayamnya karena banyaknya gajih (lemak) ayamnya. Very tasty, tapi jadi eneg. And I worry of getting more fat.

Aku membungkus kado Rp 13 ribu berupa coklat dengan Koran. Kububuhkan tulisan singkat, “ Semoga bermanfaat, jangan lupa bagi-bagi biar ga gendut sendirian. Ada tulisan lucu di t-shirt, Dear Lord, if you can’t make me skinny, please make my friends fat.”

Aku menonton metro dan bulu kudukku berdiri mendengarkan kisah Rachel Corrie. How could she? Being so faithful to the values she kept and willing to die. I heard an interview with her. She said that it was very bad in this warfare. Children are killed, shot. She was confused about something called humanity, nurani. She saw none. And this follower of Sidharta Gautama have seen it all. War is nothing about feelings. It’s all about cold frozen hearted man.  Pathetically sad, her death can’t make this war stop. None (Israel nor America) are taking any lessons from this event. Aku jadi teringat Oprah Show yang menampilkan seorang prajurit wanita. Ia terkena tembakan di kepalanya dan peluru menembus sebagian otaknya. Ia berhasil hidup namun kehlangan sebagian ukuran otaknya dan kemampuan kognitifnya (kalo ga salah). Dia jadi tak bisa membaca. Dia pun mendapatkan sebagian penutup kepala tambahan, penutup yang peang itu. Dia pun bingung ketika dihadapkan pada runtunan kata-kata. Tuturnya, “Saya ingat dulu saya bisa membaca ini.” Tetapi sekarang ia harus kembali belajar membaca dari awal untuk mendapatkan kembali kemampuan membacanya. Kesimpulan: Perang tak ada untungnya. Hanya ada kerugian. Kerugian. Kerugian. Bahkan Sang Atasan, say the president, makin kambuh saja penyakit tamaknya. Tak pernah puas. Penyakit yang sangat menyiksa! Penyakit yang sudah ada dari zaman dahulu kala tapi tak banyak yang berusaha mencari dengan teliti obatnya.

Kuteruskan tontonanku. Indonesia mencari bakat. A kind of show that shows any kind of attraction that can be performed live on stage on a short period of time. I found out that this show is special in a way that it need a total effort in performing at this stage. Semua kontestan menunjukan kesungguhan. Inovatif, menarik, out of the box, beyond my expectation, out of the ordinary. Harus punya sesuatu yang baru dan menarik untuk ditampilkan. Menurut saya mereka tipe orang yang mengenali potensi diri, berlatih, memfokuskan diri, all out dan konsisten atas apa yang dijalaninya. It’s outstanding.

So, susan, mau ahli di bidangmu? Kenali potensi diri. Belajar. Berlatih like the 10,000 hour rule. Fokus. Lakukan yang terbaik. Istiqomah. Make sure it’s absolutely something you love!
