Never regret anything that once made you smile.

"You never talk about your regrets. Don't you have any?"

"I guess, but I don't like to call them regrets. I refer them as wonderings."


"Because I always wonder what would have happened if things had played out differently. But to name my past decisions 'mistakes' or 'regrets' is foolish. If I choose something, it was the right choice at the time. We never purposely make mistakes; we only call them that in hindsight."

We'll learn to make better decisions in life, with experience and time. :)

"..hingga akhirnya kita akan tahu, yang pandai bersyukur, pandai mengikhlaskan, dan mudah untuk memaafkan, adalah mereka yang banyak bahagianya."


Nikmatilah lara.

"Setiap kita punya sepi sendiri-sendiri. Jika hidup orang tampak meriah, itu karena sepi dirayakan dengan mewah."


Song of joy.

Ranau | Noor gambateh. 

I saw a pure white dream
So white as if it were transparent

I was walking slowly
Like in my memories

Like the sun in the night sky and the moon in the blue sky
Somehow I feel so warm
I wonder if you know

I am alive
The stars are crying
It sounds like
A song of joy

Whenever you are talking to me
It feels like I’m in a cradle

Over that great, wide sea
there is a burning grassland

That pure, small light is turning into you
and engulfs me entirely
In the twinkling of an eye it will become an endless fairy tale of some time

You are alive
You are raising your voice
It is a song of joy
that will never stop ringing.

- Song of joy, Plenty.

"Jika benarlah engkau mencintai Tuhanmu, 
maka bergembiralah dengan apa jua takdirNya."

There's a certain quite that's needed  to understand the whisper within.

Sederhana yang indah, seperti yang dipuisikan pak Sapardi Djoko Damono dalam puisinya, tentang kata yang yang tak sempat diucapkan kayu kepada api yang menjadikannya abu dan isyarat yang tak sempat dijadikan awan kepada hujan yang menjadikannya tiada. 

"It’s great to be independent, to build yourself up to becoming the best person possible in both your character and your career. But it’s also great to meet someone along the way who can make you feel like the sun shines a little brighter because they exist, someone who can fully accept and love you for the person you are despite your flaws, despite the parts of you that’s sometimes hard to love."
