In this world full of ignorance people. We often forget we live in this world to share. Even to give back to Earth.
So, if most of you didn't believe there is God. Then believe what you want to believe about natural disaster which killed a lot of victims.
Some of us believed it God's way to give us a reminder. Have we care about each other? Have we thankful for what we have? Have we pray enough? Or we just take everything for granted.
Another disaster happened just a month after Lombok earthquake. Now, we have another one on the other island and tsunami.
Devastating news and event. Nothing I can do here except praying for those who effected in the situation. Sure donation and volunteers are on the way. Just hang tight, Palu!
You're all in our prayers.
This is some kind of action requested from my friend @desytapuri where we can share our own thoughts, concerns and care to this world we live in.
Nowadays, we do live in the world where sincere thank yous are rare. Where sorries and apologies are extinct. Let alone, caring for the sake of the people we love. We tend to ignore good the feelings inside but more to the selfishness.
We don't care about what we do to the people who loves us unconditionally, either friends or family members. We tend to pay attention more to the flaws and mistakes they do. Especially, we tend to pay more attention to how many followers and likes we have daily. Yet, we tend to ignore the real person in front of us, but more to the DM's and other personal chats.
I used to become the person who care more about the people in my chats rather than my friend talking about his/her days in front of me. That's when I got my first blackberry. Until, one of my very best friend hit me in the gut by telling me how rude I was not paying attention to what he just told me.
His statement hit me like Thor's hammer in my belly.
After that, I learned a lot about being present to most of my friends who need me, personally. Not me in the chat rooms or DMs or whatever online messages I have in the palm of my hand. I'm trying to be a good listener and said my piece of advices when needed, sometimes. Most importantly, I'm trying to be present for them.
So, I wish you can be better than me. Have a great life ahead, darlings!
"How you look at yourself sets the standard for all current and future relationships. If you can’t enjoy your own self, how can you enjoy the company of those around you? Appreciate yourself, your beauty, your greatness, all the good things about you. You are wonderful and so is everyone around you. See the beauty in your soul. We are all so beautiful if only we could accept it". --- Avina Celeste
This is one of the thing I do to appreciate people in my life. Especially those I can call a friend, a dear friend or a very best of friends. I took their pic and posted in my feed. Telling you about him or her.
This time is @wahyusgani turn because he is the only one that showed up during my test photoshoot few weeks ago. He willingly accompanied me until the day is over and be very patient handling the heat and the rain of the day. It was somehow a weird yet good day after all.
We met at one of the photo hunt event. Now, he is looking for an upgrade to his lens. Maybe, you're interested to buy his lens or camera? Do check his feed or DM him directly, alright?
Share your weaknesses. Share your hard moments. Share your real side. It'll either scare away every fake person in your life or it will inspire them to finally let go of that mirage called "perfection," which will open the doors to the most important relationships you'll ever be a part of.
Trust me, it's artificial plane. I remember those days when people actually trust one can perfectly take a pic with a plane right passed above them. Maybe some, if you're positive thinking. But, most of them are just a digital imaging.
I did this one because I want to do something different and tell you to explore but be honest with your work. Don't steal other pics and claim it as yours, don't say it's no filter or it's not being edited.
If you can lie to yourself about your own work, how others want to see yours as authentic?
To me, in anything, brutally honest and communication is the key.
Have a great weekend, darlings!
Never cease loving a person, and never give up hope for him, for even the prodigal son who had fallen most low, could still be saved; the bitterest enemy and also he who was your friend could again be your friend; love that has grown cold can kindle.
Because every midnight you take off your mask
There are people we meet who have but little roles to play in our lives, who happen to be no more than a special appearance to our story.
People, who influence, who possess the drift, the force whose implication leads us forward in our course of life. We might have never come across them until today and probably not hear from them tomorrow or ever after, for all that exists is this moment, a moment enough for them to fulfil their purpose that being to help us find our way and enough for us to fulfil ours that being to actually find it, reach it, accomplish it.
They are the ones who bring meaning to our lives, who happen to inspire, who spark a fire that we carry with us for the rest of our days, who are but pillars of hope and sometimes sacrifice, life-changers, life-savers, catalysts.
Thank YOU for being my life-safer 😘
