The solution when you're confused

These days I was so confused. It's like I don't know which step I should take since I don't exactly know where the way leads me to. All I think is 'what if'. What if I take this way? Then I can't find what I will find if I go another way? In contrast, what if I take the another way? I can't get what I will get if I go this way?

Confusion is a word we have invented for an order which is not understood. Henry Miller

Well, confusion always makes everything confusing. It doesn't lead you anywhere, it just brings you bigger confusing situation. And then I realized something. I'm confused not because I don't know what I should do. It's because I don't know what I'm looking for. And in life, it always happen to us.


Let me illustrate this. Let's say there are two ways you can choose. First way will bring you to a place where you can find people you love. The second way is different. It has a lot of money that definitely makes you rich. There is a situation when you're confused.

I'm confused not because I don't know what I should do. It's because I don't know what I'm looking for. And in life, it always happen to us.

Maybe you want to follow the first way as you can feel happy when you're with the people you love. Make sense. But you don't have money? It's not a guarantee there's money there, and you know you can't live without money. Then you change your mind, you decide to follow the second way. You think it's okay not to be with people you love, because you can still survive without them, because you have money! But then you think again, what's the point of having a lot money and living this life if you can't feel happy with the people you love? And maybe you'll find new people there who you can also love?

Well, I'm not gonna debating about which way is right. But this confusing situation often comes to our lives. It's not always about money, people you love, or what. It's just example. It can be anything.

Whether we realize or not, when we're confused, we keep asking about which the right way we should go. We focus too much about it, while what we really need is to know what we really need, not the right way. The question now is not which the right way to go, but which we we're looking for. Is it happiness with the people we love? Or surviving life with money is already enough? Weigh both, which one is more important?

We focus too much about which the right way we should go, while what we really need is to know what we really need, not the right way.

When we try to know which the right way to go, we will never know it. When we know what we're looking for, we will know the right way to go. The hardest part is to know what you're really looking for. But, at least it will lead you to less confusion, or no confusion.

Change the Perspective

One of people who inspire me the most is Nick Vujicic . I believe many of you know about this man. If you don't, well, he's a man with no arms and no legs. Although he has this disability, he still lives his life to the fullest. He swims. He surfs. He married. He does whatever he wants. Even he inspires many people around the world with great stories about his amazing life. Isn't he really a huge inspiration? I'm sure you know what I'm gonna write here. Many things we can learn from him, like being thankful, enjoying life, creating your happiness, or living the life you want no matter what the circumstance is. But I want to talk about his great life from a little bit different thing. He inspired me in one thing when I read his book. If there's one thing I can learn from him, it's that you can't always change your problems, but you can always change the way you see it . You can't always change your problems, but you can always chang

Remy and His Passion

This is the second post of Disney Lessons on my blog, and this time I'm gonna talk about that little mouse from Ratatouille . Yup, Remy ! For you who don't watch this movie, Ratatouille is a Disney movie about a little mouse, Remy, who's expert in cooking, and he secretly helps a chef named Linguini who can't cook at all. For some people who watch it, maybe this movie is funny because it's about a mouse that helps a chef to cook just by hiding in the chef's hat and controlling what he does with his hair. But this movie becomes very inspirational when you see it from this mouse's perspective. His name is Remy. His passion is in cooking. The most inspiring thing about Remy is, nobody supports him to cook. Everybody disagrees with him, even his father really hates him for doing that. But, it's about passion. His heart is in cooking. But then, back to the fact again: he's a mouse! How to be a chef when you're a mouse? By the way, I like how

Look to God, not Yourself

Few days ago, suddenly I was moved to post this topic on this blog, and a perfect title came to me. Look to God, not yourself. This title really represents what I want to share with you right now. Some friends of mine, who are also following my Twitter, told me that I tweet a lot about God. Yeah, maybe it's true. I told them my reason, " Because God has the biggest role in my life. I can talk about my life, my problems, myself, but all of them are nothing if there's no God behind it. There are many things in my life that I really can't do alone. Even when I've done my best, I still can't. I need God. Only God can help me and make it work. " God is the key of everything in my life. Without God, I'm just an imperfect and weak man. Life is too challenging, I can't even handle it with my own strength and ability. I am not able. That's why I really need to look to God. The only reason I stand still now is because I look to God. There are
