Pada setiap persimpangan jalan hidup, pasti kita bersinggungan dengan orang lain. Pun begitu pula dengan apa yang kita lakukan, juga pasti akan berpengaruh pada kehidupan orang lain. Aku jadi ingat sebuah buku berjudul The Five People You Meet in Heaven karya Mitch Albom yang aku baca lima tahun yang lalu. Buku tersebut memberikan cuplikan tentang bagaimana apa yang kita lakukan bisa memiliki efek yang besar pada hidup seseorang. Pendeknya seperti domino effect. Makin ke sini, makin aku berpikir bahwa apa yang diceritakan oleh Mitch Albom memang sangat masuk akal. Seperti domino-domino itu, hidup kita terlihat kekar namun juga ringkih terhadap satu jentikan jari.

I have a lot of dreams. 
Since I was a kid, I always thought that if I have dreams, someday I would make it real. With that thought, me as a kid always thought that if I just did better and without any burden then I could do anything. I started to gain my confidence. I started to think that life never been so hard and never failed me. Even sometimes lot of people stared at me like I am crazy, overconfidence, and ambitious; I just did not care. Then I grew up being a child with her dreams. In fact, there was also a time when I look down a lot of people due to that. I made her cry, I made her had no friends, and I made her thinking that I am greater than her which was completely bullshit and wrong. I was so young, so dumb, so naive, so sucks. I never knew what I was doing is wrong until I was on her shoes. I cried, had no friends, living crazy life, and had no confidence. That time, I thought everything that I've hold onto was being taken out from me. I was angry, both to myself an…

Lost and Forgettable

As a day become a week, then a week become a month. Places and memories are still the same, unchanged. Yet, the only one that changed is people. People do changed in the way that they never realize. They only do the same thing until they realize that they are lost in the maze that they made. In fact, the maze has not only one way out, but a thousand. Some people might want to leave the maze, while the others decided to not to leave the maze. Thus people and maze are already united become one. In the end, there are no right or wrong answer about the choice that people made. It is all about them, who are you to judge?
In contrast for me, I realize that I need to runaway from the maze and finding myself once more. It is not an easy job to find yourself that has been too long lost in the place that is so familiar.  For me, I start with recognizing things all over again, and arranging my heart and action towards everythings. Thus I start to find who I really am and what I need instead of …
