Life is about change!

Hello again, everyone! Sorry I didn't post anything for a long time. Well, I just finished my holiday. And now I'm back in Singapore for the last semester! Yes, it's the last semester. Finally! Yay!

Talking about this semester, I get a subject called "Managing Change". I don't exactly know what this subject is all about, but, from the name, I think I'm gonna love it! It's all about CHANGE. In this subject, it will focus more in the context of business. But I think change is more than that. It's about life! :)

I've been learning a lot about change since I was in high school. First thing you need to know about me: I'm a big hater of change. When change is needed, I always try to resist it, especially when I'm already in the place I want. But, the first thing you need to know about change: it always happens wherever you are. You can't avoid it. In fact, everything changes in time. If I don't want to flow with it, I'll be the only one that remains the same, which means I'll be left alone.

I'm still learning to manage change until now, especially how to accept change when it comes. "Don't resist! Go with it!" That's what I always tell to myself. Because when I resist, I just make my life more complicated. It's like running from problems. Change keeps demanding more, more, and more, while I keep resisting it again, again, and again.When is it going to end, then?

The truth is, change is not really that bad. It's good, sometimes it's the only good way you can take. But we fear everything is going to be worse when something is changed. Let go the fear, enjoy your ride with it!

Well, we need to adapt change a little bit sometimes. After all, change is about transformation. It's transforming something to something else. The question is, "Do you have the courage to make your journey from here to there?" Everyone wants to go "there", but not everyone is willing to face the journey to go "there".

All you really need to do with change is to accept it and enjoy the flow with the change itself. You know you need it, so why resist? Change is for the better. Sometimes you'll get a short-term pain for a change, but it'll give you a long-term gain! At least that's what I learn. But when you don't change, you'll just prepare for a long-term pain.

Overall, change is like a bad friend, but actually change is a real friend who wants you to grow better. Be friends with it because you need that kind of thing.

It's always better to change your life before your life changes you.

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

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

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
