This morning, I got a message from my husband at the office.. More less the English translation is like this:

What are you searching for in this life?

You lived on the mountain, you missed the beach..
You lived near the beach, you wanted to feel how it’s like to live on the mountain..

On summer you asked for the snow to fall coz it’s such a hot day..
When the winter came, you missed how warm it could have been on summer..

You stay still at home, you feel like going outside and feel free..
Once you’re outside you’re missing home..

Once you’re single you keep complaining about how much you’ve wanted to have someone to be loved..
When you’ve found someone, you’re complaining why don’t you have children..
When you’re married and have children, you’re confused managing your finance, and how to handle your children..

Turns out to be, something looks good when we haven’t had it yet..

When will you be happy if you only chase things you don’t have? But you didn’t take too much care of things you’ve already owned..

A piece of leaf might not be able to cover this world, but look, once you sticked that leaf upon you eyes, the whole world would be covered from your sight..

And so did your heart.. If it’s filled with bad things even if a small piece then you will see this life the way your heart felt..

Be grateful of whatever happen in your life..

Coz life is:
Time that’s lended..
Wealth that’s trusted..


Happiness comes from within.. That simple :)

So true, and what a simple tought everyone can have, but you know what, it’s so hard to be applied in the real life! I mean, who doesn’t want to have a better life day by day? More money, more level of prosperity, more famous, and the other more..

Nowadays, almost everything is about money.. You need money to buy food you can eat, your clothes are bought with money too.. Then you have to make money, whatever it takes.. You work for money, you gamble at a game for money, you study to get a good job which means more money..

But something we might have forgot : you need to be grateful not only for things you’ve owned but also for things you haven’t..

Thing you haven’t owned can motivate you to jump a little higher to reach it.. You need a passion to keep you alive, to differentiate you from things.. To differentiate you from zombie.. Well, even zombie have an urgent to eat brain, lol.. Imagine, when you’ve got all the things that you want, would you be happy after all?

Look at the people, a couple might think that having children will complete their life.. Haven’t you seen couple with kids ended up with divorce? There are so many! You might think famous person have a perfect life : popularity, money, women, houses, etc.. Haven’t you heard famous person do a suicide?


Having everything you could’ve wanted doesn’t guarantee your happiness.. Life will be empty if we don’t have anything to be chased anymore..

Human can never be satisfied, it’s just our thing.. The final level will be searching for the peace.. You could have tons of money, but you didn’t feel secure.. You could have money for living only this day, but you feel okay.. That peace will be found, only if you are grateful, for what you’ve got and what you haven’t..

Just another killing-timed post, just a tought.. Still learning, still going..
