Do I Need to Change?

I'm always so excited when I talk about change. I talked about it before. If you haven't read it, go read my previous post titled "Life is About Change". And now, I'm encouraged to talk about it again. So, here it goes.

Change. It is something very interesting to discuss. Change happens everywhere, everytime. You can see change around you, on your body, even inside you. One thing I learn about change: you can't always control it. So, when it happens, you must be ready whether you want it or not.

I hate change. That's the fact about me. I'm an introvert person. Introvert people do not like change. Once they feel comfortable with something, they never think to change it, even if that change may be for the better.

Sometimes I know it's better for me to change something, but I often refuse it. I always ask myself, "I'm happy where I am right now, why do I need to change? I love where I am today. I don't need change."

It sounds true for a while, but then I think again about it. It's not always right. It sounds naive. Sometimes you need that change even when everything "seems" okay for you not to change anything. You don't want change, and you want everything to remain the same, but sometimes change happens from the outside, maybe the circumstances or other people around you.

Okay, here the case. If you're not happy where you are now, you need change. However, if you're happy where you are now, second question is applied: "Can you guarantee it's gonna be forever?" The answer is more likely to be "No".

The truth is, you can't control everything in your life. If you're happy now and you can guarantee everything will always be great, that's fine. You don't need change. But the question is, who can guarantee everything will always be okay like now? Circumstances change. People change. Many things around you change. You must accept that you can't control that. All you have to do is to prepare, and sometimes the only way to prepare it is to change.

If you know that change is good for you and you know it's for the better, don't think twice, you should take it.

Maybe you ask, "Why do I need to change it now? I can change it later when I really need to change." I asked the same question to myself, then I think for a while and answer it to myself, "Will you be ready when that time really comes? Isn't it better for you to change it now? You can still have many choices, time, and things that may help you to change. If you wait for that time, you have no choice except to change, and that's not gonna be harder. Everything will press you and that change will be more challenging than change you can take today."

After all, it's always better to change it now than to wait for tomorrow when it's harder to do.

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
