To be honest, i almost gave up on blogging since my blog server went down about seven or eight years ago, it's gone along with a couple year blog content of mine disappeared with out back up.
But simpleguy tweet me a while back mentioning about killua-project that lead me to this almost forgotten blog and... oh boy, it's truly blast from the past, reading and remembering of what's going on with younger self life.
One thing that I have realized it's that I really have coming along way since the day of the last post in this blog. Well, is not that right now it's that my self is at where I wanted to be, metaphorically speaking, but it's somewhere that I never thought I'd be.
So many events happened in my life... a new jobs, a new town, a marriage, a kid, a house mortgage... and many feeling that I have experienced so far... Heartbreak, loneliness, achievement, alienation, love, hardship, I have been through it all.
So I wish this blog entry is the beginning of many entries that I'll post, because looking back at yesteryear, I definitely need to get in touch to my inner self, to contemplate the past, to gain insight of experience, to become a better person to whatever fate will bring to me.
They said that life is come in a full circle, what was old will become new, and looking through at so many in things in my life so far, I think I have to agree with that. What I'm experiencing and will experience is the same old stories from our past, only this time I wish I have the wisdom to accept and courage to take action.
Propra Vivere et Singulos Dies Singulas Vitas Puta
This probably my last post in this blog, because i'm moving out.
So long blogdrive, thanks for all these wonderfull years.
Losing something that I donít have yet.
The journey I take is still many miles away. The book that I read is one amongst the many on the self. The tree that I see is not the entire forest.
I don't want to stop walking, I don't want to stop reading, and I don't want to stop seeing.
Just because I fear of losing something that I don't have yet.
The year of 2005 is very interesting year for me, so much happened that year, especially on the fourth quarter.
I thank God for that.
And about the year of 2006, it will be my year.
For the last couple months I've tried to live my life by my own values, some are old, some are new, and I think it's about a time for me to put that values in to some action. One of the values that I tried to holding on is that I will never ask God for anything anymore except forgiveness. It's not that I didn't need God, but it's more like how I could ask something that already given to me. With being born in to this world, healthy, I know that I'm blessed more than some people who unlucky. And I do believe that God has provided everything that I wanted and needed to live my life in this world. And I thanks God for that.
And I tell you, it was easy thing to say, but it wasn't easy thing to do. Yesterday my mom was sick and need to be staying at hospital, and I never feel so tempted to ask God for everything turn to be all right. But I couldn't do that this time because I believe that God has provided everything for me to make everything all right, I just need to look and reach for it and I should be thankful for that.
So God, I thank you for giving my mom the doctor who care, a strength for my father, my brother and sisters, a help and care from my friends, and most of all thank you for giving me a chance to live in this world and surrounded me with all these great people.
Balikpapan, a way back
I spent the last 4 days at Balikpapan, doing work for my company at the small city at Kalimantan. It was a nice city, a lively city, surrounded by beach, and famous for its oil and gas industry.
Fortunately my colleague who came with me at Balikpapan is familiar with the city, so I having no trouble at all spotting some area at the city that needed to visit and having a good time, aside from boring work that I did for my company. And you know, the most striking moment at balikpapan is when my colleague asked me how come I didn't have a girlfriend, and I just said that I couldn't found the right girl yet, and he replied " well I think you are too choosy". those words makes me silent. How ironic, just when I realize that I couldn't choose for my heart, and the person next to me judged me for being to choosy. And then he keeps talking about how he misses his family back home, I envy that.
Well, the criteria of best journey for me is knowing that you had someone who misses you back home, I know that I had mom, dad, brother, sisters who misses me, but I'm not talking about them, I'm talking about my own family, my own wife and child which I don't have yet. So for you Balikpapan, sadly it wasn't the best journey that I had, but I thank you for me to realize that.
