Live your life to the fullest

You know seeing my parents in their old days starting to have sickness like diabetes, high cholesterol, problem with eyes sight and I sort of wishing that I won't have to reach old age... I mean, my parents have me to take care of them a bit. But what about me? I have nobody to take care of me in the future... I do not think sick and dying alone is a pleasant thing to think about...

Then, yesterday when I went with my mother to Jakarta Eye Centre we met this elderly. She is about 70 years old and suffered glaucoma. That is why she said she has to give up driving, probably about a month ago. And I was like...wow! I watched her in awe because she was still driving even at the age of 70? And come to think of it, she has some kind of energy coming out of her body. She look so alive and no sign that she is sick or tired or anything that indicate she is an elderly. I even heard that a few month ago she still go with a group of tourist to Vatican. She drove those tourists with minibus...

Wish I could be like that IF I ever reach her age... I suppose being old or in any age, we should have that kind of spirit so we can live our life to the fullest.

And please stop grumbling and being desperate about anything as it will only be a waste of our time...

I have to admit, I admire those who manage to read, to process, to understand and to give comment for all dozens of postings made by their online friends on the net...

For me, I do not think I have the ability to be patient to open all postings made by my online friends and read them carefully... Naturally I realize probably that is one of many reasons very few people come and read my blog... But then again, probably my writings not interesting enough to draw people to go back here again and again...

Probably because I still look at my blog as a way to have new friends rather than readers... Again, because I am not so sure I will be able to go to various postings and takes times to read them carefully and understand the meaning of their posts or creations. Especially if they write a poem or something like that which is actually kinda personal and you will not be able to get it just by a quick reading,

Anyway, just want to apologize to my online friends if I did not visit your blog more often :(  Hopefully I will be able to do that in the future and really spend time reading it and not just blogwalking leave traces here and there

Not so funny jokes

Often I received forwarding jokes from people about current situation like for example a jokes about corruption or misuse fund, which I think is certainly funny.

But when I read people making fun a disaster especially a huge one like tsunami in Japan or even when the one that hit Aceh in the year 2004...I found it hard to believe. I mean, if you can not say something to cheer up the survivors then just shut up please. Where is your emphaty?

Or if you do not know what to say when people ask your opinion then perhaps short sentence will be enough. Not saying that well, there are too many people in this world so this disaster will help to reduce living people in this earth... I mean, seriously?

Yeah, sure we can make a joke about everything because yes I suppose everything have their own funny side of the story... But perhaps we should bite our tongue and stop making fun about every disaster happened in this world...

It's not so funny anymoret

Defeated

One time failure, I can accept
Second time, I still can cope with it...
But over and over again, get me wondering...

What if this is not meant to be...
What if this journey going to be a very long journey?
Can I stand it to wait that long?
Can I still have the strength and resources to keep walking on this journey?

Or do I have to accept the fact that I am nothing and nothing at all?
And that is what ever I am going to be?
