Eat well, live well, and be merry!

Christmas This Year

Christmas this year, is, as expected, empty as usual.

When so much has happened to your family for years, you’re just so accustomed to not feel the warmth of the holiday season. Luckily it did not turn me into a cold-hearted person. As hollow as I feel, I know I am a hopeful person, I am even more optimistic that someday soon I’ll be so happy that I won’t remember any of this.

Christmas this year taught me that sometimes you just gotta suck it up.
Life is what it is and you have to relax yourself and stop mourning.

Christmas this year is spent without cookies, tree, nor presents. Me, mom, bro and sis just ate pizza and talked a bit. But we hung around so I knew my mom did not feel lonely.

Christmas this year marks the third year I have not met my father again. We just exchanged Christmas greetings through sms and that was it.

Christmas this year comes with flood in the house. December 2012 is indeed a rainy season festival, eh? I don’t know how I’m gonna get out of the house tomorrow, so I just chill and write this post.

Christmas this year I learned that the people you thought you really knew, can surprise you so much… in a bad way.

The ones you thought are very happy and lucky, turn out had a painful history of life.

The ones you thought are sweet and kind and will never hurt you… hurt you.

The ones you thought you’ll see more of them in the future, have lost you the interest.

But that’s the way life is, I guess?

You learn, you breathe, you surrender, and you’re thankful that you can get through it.

One thing that does not change, Christmas this year I’m still blessed. I think I am forever blessed. You know my life is not perfect, but the Man above makes sure I won’t go through it alone.

My friends are my treasure. They came from any way possible and are so kind and sincere that you just smile and wonder “What have I done to deserve all this?”

Even in the shittiest situation, He still sends me love and blessings through these people with their hearts of gold.

Any friend in any circle I’m in, is just as amazing.

Thank you so much, sweethearts. Thank you for being there.
It’s still Christmas after all, I knew it ’cause have you πŸ™‚

God bless your kind hearts πŸ™‚

Merry Christmas, lovely readers!

    As cheesy as it may sound, but I do feel this way too *peluk neng Teppy*

    Natal tahun ini gue juga belajar, bahwa hal yang sepertinya sebuah hal buruk malah menjadi berkat, mudah-mudahan lo juga mengalalmi hal yang sama ya.

    Selamat Natal ya neng, banyak doa dan cinta untukmu dan kesayanganmu :*

    I love you, Tepski!

    Walaupun kamu lebih tinggi dari aku, kamu tetep adik kecil buatku.
    Embrace life, enjoy your curiosity, have fun and be happy. For you, first.
    Then you’ll keep your surroundings, happy too.

    Teppy… Ibuku pernah bilang,”Hidup itu pembelajaran yang paket belajarnya nggak pernah bisa kita pilih. Sudah keniscayaan. Ya begitu itu lah. Sedih, senang, nangis, senyum, satu paket…”

    Kesukaan yang besar biasanya juga sejodoh dengan kesedihan yang besar. Satu paket.

    Makanya kita suka denger ada yang ngomong,”Woooy jangan ketawa mulu … ntar nangis lho!”

    Konyol terdengar …. tapi benar adanya menurutku.

    Karena satu paket, tinggal kita lah penentunya adikku manis…. kamu mau fokus yang mana?

    Momentum satu rasa itu relatif. Tergantung kita.

    Kita bisa berlama-lama dalam sedih. Tapi kita juga bisa menentukan mau berlama-lama dalam suka bukan? πŸ˜‰

    Anggap aja ini omongan bawel sahabatmu yang kebetulan lebih tua (dikit) dari kamu ya πŸ˜‰

    Jadi, mau memilih memperpanjang momen dan mensyukuri yang mana?

    Sedih berlama-lama atau suka yang dibuat lama? πŸ˜‰
