Student Life is Done!

It's really nice to be back here. Some of you asked me why I didn't update my blog for long time. Yeah, it's been about two months, the longest blogging break I had. You know, these last months I was super busy. I'm sorry I didn't have enough time to manage my blog. But today I'm so happy to come back here, and I hope you are still excited to read my blog. I have a lot of things to share. Well, during this long break, I get inspired by so many great stuffs, and I just can't help to share them all here.

Today, I'm not going to talk about inspirational stories or Disney. I just want to talk about my life. To be exact, my student life. Guess what? Yesterday was my last day for being a college student. Yesterday was the day for last exam of my last semester. Sometimes I can't believe I just did it. Well, maybe for you, I'm just overwhelming. But this is what I feel.

You know that feeling when you just start a journey, walk and make it step and by step, and suddenly you're at your destination. It's like "Hey, this is the place I was going to for a long time, and now I'm here. So, my journey is finished here."

Just to let you know, when I started being a student in Singapore, I didn't even have confidence that I would be able to be until the finish line. Even when I was transferring from Diploma to Degree, I did almost give up. That was the lowest point of my life. If you know me or follow my Twitter during that time, you surely know how miserable I was. But now I'm here. And it's all by His grace. It's not because I'm smart, and it's not because I'm able to do so, but because He always takes care of me. The thing is, if it's not God who brought me here, I guess I wouldn't be here right now.

You get the meaning of life not by what you achieve, but how you achieve it.

Now, what will I do then? Work? Continue to study?

That's the most common question people ask to me. Hmm, so here is my answer. If you watch Tangled the Disney movie, you'll surely know what Rapunzel's biggest dream. She lived in a castle, never came out, and she was always wondering what it would be like to be outside and see the lights. When she finally had a chance to reach her dream, she asked Flynn: "I've been looking out a window for eighteen years, dreaming about what it might feel like when those lights rise in the sky. What if it’s not everything I dreamed it would be? And what if it is? What do I do then?" And Flynn's answer was super inspiring: "That’s the good part I guess. You get to go find a new dream."

A new dream. That's what I need. It's good to live by having a dream, and when you reach it, you get another chance to find another dream. Actually, that's the point of life. Without dream, life is empty. With dream, sometimes life becomes more challenging. But it's getting fun because that's the real adventure of life!

So, what's my new dream? For now, I don't really have a big plan. I just let God lead and guide my life. But one thing for sure, I really know where I'm going. Now, I'm just enjoying my life. And I'm gonna make the best of the rest of my life. Actually, this is the beginning of my real life: life with no examination, but greater challenges to ride.

Love Languages

Valentine's day is coming soon, and it's the day of love. I think it's a great idea to share something related to love: Love Languages . Have you heard about it before? It's not my idea. It's Gary Chapman's, but I'm excited to share it with you! I've shared it with people around me all this time, making sure they know about this amazing idea. And the exciting thing about love languages is, it's applicable not only for your life partner, but also for everyone around you, including your parents, friends, coullages, and every single one you know. I once wrote, " Life is always about love, but love is not about him or her all the time. " So don't worry, whatever your status is right now, it can be fun for you too! Let's explore about love! Okay. What's love languages? Basically there are five love languages, and one person has one dominant love language. The fun is in finding out the dominant love language in people you care ab

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
