Let go so you can breathe

Last week my grandma just passed away. It was a shock for everyone in my family, especially my Dad. Actually, my Dad is a strong person. It's very difficult to bring him down, except it's something that means so much to him. And it was the first time I saw my Dad got so depressed. It's like he couldn't accept the fact that his mother was not with him anymore. The thing is, he still didn't want to let her mom go.

It made me think a lot. I told to myself, well, this is the life. There is a start to everything, but there is also the end. Everything has its stages, and maybe this is the stage where we have to say goodbye to our grandma.

Some people come into your life, you start to love them, then you feel so happy when they're around, and you just want to enjoy every single moment you have with them. But we all know nothing lasts forever. Sooner or later, there is always something that makes you can't be with them anymore. It may be death, just like what happened between my Dad and my grandma. It may be other things too, such as relationship problems. Many things. Whatever it is, the key is not to wait for the end to come. It is to enjoy every single moment while you still have the chance to do it. Enjoy it and be thankful.


Then, what should we do when it ends? That's the problem that many people forget. Let go. It's hard to let go when the thing you have to let go is something that you really love. It's like there will be a big problem, ready to ruin everything if you don't keep it. That's why you don't dare to let go. And that's the real problem.

The biggest problem in life is when you don't want to let go of things you should let go.

Everyone has to let go. It's not always about death. It's not always about people. It may be about your relationship, your job, your ego, your power, your childhood. There are many things.

When the time comes, you have to let go. Let go so you can breathe. Most people are afraid that everything will be worse if they let go. The truth is, there is a time when you can't keep it anymore, and the big trouble that really makes everything worse is actually when you still don't want to accept that it is the time to let go.

It hurts when you have to let go something you really love, but it can hurt you more if you don't.

It's not easy. Once you let go, you have no idea what will happen next. But sometimes letting go is the only choice for you to keep surviving, moving on, and living your life. Sometimes letting go is the only way for you to keep "breathing".

It's like there is a heavy burden on your shoulder when you don't let go. And when you're finally willing to let go, you finally realize that it doesn't have to burden you. You start living life again. You start to breathe freely.

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
