Count Your Blessings: Rainy Season is Coming, Things are Getting Better



Rainy season is in the town! I woke up in the morning with the sound of rain drops, cold weather & I stayed a little longer in the bedroom, since the comfy warm blanket, morning talk-show in the television, and FREElance time were all perfect combination this morning. It is all that people need recently, the rain. The heat was very horrible, with the smoke and fire-forest problems, people were hoping for the rain. Now, the smoke become less, and in near future, people will enjoy the cool air every time they go to work or go home. These days are great for cups of hot chocolate! Yummy!

In my opinion, it will always about the perspective that we see the condition. Some people are stressed that in the future they will face other problems: water-flood, heavier traffic, wet clothes, or hardly bring umbrella anywhere. People can not deny, everything come in a package. since I love playing guitar, then I should accept that sometimes my fingers should bleed. I want to get a better education, then I should accept that it needs a lot of efforts and hard works. I remember when I failed to get into the university from which I have graduated in the first try, it was a very great time to understand that I should study more, and with a little extra effort, I could make it. The biggest perspective of all condition, in my opinion, is that God always open a better door when He close a door for me. But back again, it will always about the perspective..

Back to about 70 years ago, every civilian can not say " Indonesia" or "Merdeka" freely, and a sign of red and white flags on their chest will lead them to death. They didn't know whether they would stay a live the day after, since thousands of people died on the streets. But stay living under slavery also weren't a choice either. Protecting the family was not only about searching money and feed them, but fighting against those people who sees other human as animals, slave, and have no heart to humanity. Now, about 70 years later, I can open my eyes every morning and take a deep long breath to appreciate this beautiful life. That is very calming and nice.That's how I appreciate Heroes Day, thanks to our grandparents.

I am quite a freelancer now, but I am grateful I have free time with my friends to randomly go to tourist spots in weekdays, avoiding traffic jam. I am also grateful for being a petroleum engineering major graduates. People say that it is a tough time for fresh graduates, and It is extremely different condition to the time when the oil price was more than 100 dollar per barrel, but I see it more like a good time to learn again the petroleum engineering as my interest, not forced by schedule. I  struggle with this silly generalized anxiety disorder, but I am grateful that I learn a lot of things about relaxation, breathing, and leaning my life to Jesus. I also struggle with this fat on my belly, but I am grateful for those delicious foods! Whatever, I'll exercise more later..

And by the time of this famous flooding season, we should prepare ourselves for the harm.prepare extra sandals and clothes, or prepare the house for the flood. But that should never be the main concern. bad things happen, but expect good things in everything we do. As we can see, living is better in Indonesia than 70 years ago, and technology makes life become easier now than 200 years ago. With the war happened in the world, expect people to be friends to each other. That way we become the ones who bring peace on earth. I prepare for higher grade of education, I prepare for other journey to other places, and I prepare for changing the major concern, and I prepare for a better body shape :D, But with all these struggle, I believe it will be fun. Now, I simply take my hot chocolate and wait for the warm season of Christmas too!!

  3. It's a strange weather season here starting today I think. I just raced out to be sure that the basketball net hadn't blown over and broken anything. The weather just got really bizarre today here in Ontario.
