World Mental Health Day


Today is World Mental Health Day, and I want to talk a bit about this issue as it is something that always matters to me. I know (and experienced it myself) how painful it can be when you're trapped in sadness, depression, anxiety, fear, or any unwanted feelings and emotions. And the worst part is when you want to get out of it but you just feel trapped and there's nothing you can do, like you have no power and control over it.

We never know how those feelings can hit anyone for any reason, especially this year when everything is fragile and full of uncertainties. It can happen to anyone in any situation.

If you're someone who's currently struggling with it, remember that you're not alone. Never give up on yourself, because you do matter, and I believe this is not for forever and one day you will beat this. It's ok not to be ok for now. Embrace those feelings, knowing we're all human beings with all the imperfections and weaknesses.

If you're someone who's blessed enough to be mentally healthy, be grateful and don't take it for granted. Never forget to be kind to anyone. You have no idea how small acts of kindness you do to someone can change their world and perspectives.

Spread kindness. This world may be a chaotic place, but as long as we spread kindness to each other, there is always hope. And the most important thing is, be kind not only to others but also to yourself. Happy World Mental Health Day. You do matter. You are loved.

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 change the way you see i…

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 Disney Pix…

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 many things…
