Not Scared of Letting Go

How many of us do really want to let go of something? Let's say you want to let go of someone you love after breaking up with him, or maybe you want to let go of something in the past because it doesn't work anymore, but it keeps holding you back because you've been comfortable with it? How many of us do find it hard to let go? I believe every single one of us experiences this in life. It's really funny, isn't it? We really want to let go, but we can't.

I wrote a post about letting go before (if you want to read it yet, click here). Now I am writing the second post about letting go with the new title, "Not scared of letting go." The keyword here is 'not scared'. Because when you ask yourself whether you can move on or not, the question is actually not “Can you let it go?” The real question is “Are you brave enough to let it go?

letting go
"to let your frustrations, anger, etc. go and not let it stress you out like it has been doing. Letting go means you don't have to stress over whatever you're letting go anymore" (Urban Dictionary)

Everyone can let go. They are just not willing to let go. If you look further, it's not that people are not willing to let go. They are just scared of letting go because they are not sure things can get better if they do. It's such an irony. People feel bad as they feel trapped of something they don't let go, but they're still not brave enough to let go because they're afraid worse things can happen if they let go. They're afraid the consequences of letting go will be more painful than the pain they feel today.

The question is actually not “Can you let it go?” The real question is “Are you brave enough to let it go?

To let go, you need courage and faith. You have to open up your mind to realize that you're not meant to get stuck in unchanging situation that makes you feel lost. Letting go doesn't mean you're a loser because you give up so easily. Letting go means you're smart enough to know something is not relevant anymore so you need to move forward and keep going on.

When you let go, what you're really doing is making room for something new. It is not the ending. It's the beginning. You may think something is too great to let go, but most of the time, greater things can only happen after you let go. So don't be scared to let it go, because it's the first step of new better things in your life.

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
