Bigger Is Not Always Better

A lot of people believe that the more you have, the easier your life is and the happier you are. Believing it will lead them to the better life, many people want to get more and more. But if you really think about it, bigger is not always better. Sometimes it's the opposite. Sometimes, when you try too hard to get more, simple things change to be complicated. Sometimes, when you focus too much on getting better, you can't be thankful and enjoy what you already have. If that's the case, then what's the point in having more and getting bigger?

One of the things I learn from life is, the quality of your life really can't be measured by the quantity of what you have. If that was true, rich people with a lot of money would be the happiest. But look around you. I still meet a lot of "poor" people because they have nothing but money. Surprisingly, I also meet people who don't really have much, but they look happy and really enjoy their days. They are the people who know to be grateful for the simple things in life. They are the smart people who know that happiness doesn't cost much. They know that happiness is about what we feel and not what we have.

So, every time you feel like complaining for not having more, remember that you can be happy when you are grateful, and your life can be easy when you have the right attitude. It really has nothing to do with how much you have.

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
