Have you ever felt like you are tremendously blessed?? Or like, happy but with more gratitude feelings?
Ok.. just for your information. Today is my birthday!! Dec 14th yay!! I'm 21 years old! wait.. it automatically means I'm old already.. but it's fine :)
Ok, so let's just start the with the story that today brought me.
So.. ok i'm on a strict diet this week, but since today is my birthday, i'm having a "dirty" plan in my mind to be free only for 1 day to have a meal time together with my friends. heheheee
Ok.. so the plan has been approved by my mom. and so here we go to our favorite sushi restaurant.
But these two friends of mine (Lyn and Icha) were telling me that they will be late so my friend (Ranti) and I should go first. Ok so then we went there.
Yup we were waiting there for like half an hour when Lyn and Icha came with a cake and candles in shape of 21, singing a happy birthday song for me. yayayayayayayayaaaa!!!!! hahahaha....
I'm not lying I was so surprised. I thought they were late for real, like may be trapped in traffic jam or fallen asleep in a car. hahahhaaa...
Oh yeah there's nothing better to have friends in life, I mean, they dont buy you and you dont buy them, right. It comes naturally and you are growing together and it means you have some parts in them and they have some parts of themselves in you..
And then, I had one more birthday present to tell you. Even though it's not planned, my friends who study in Australia went to visit the campus which they haven't seen in like almost one semester.. And we finally met and had chit chats like old friends catching all the stories up for deadline. Thanks Rizki, Ken, Alv, Andre :)
So we ate the cake, again. They absolutely ruined my diet program, for sure -____-" , but I'm so happy happy to see them again. Unfortunately not all of them can make it to come to Indonesia this holiday.. :(
Yeah, I feel like I need my old studio classmates already.. There were too many memories back then. The silly stupid crazy things back there were never ever be forgotten.
The other thing that I'm currently and intensely thinking about is that, how wonderful my life is.
I mean, I will be a moron if I'm not grateful for everything Allah has given to me.
I have wonderful parents, amazingly crazy sisters and brothers, cool family, fantastic friends, and a study major which most of people will think they will be happy to be doing it if they were in my shoes. Even people who congratulate me in facebook who i don't really know or even meet. It's just nice to know they care to write in my wall even for 10 seconds.
Anyways, it's like huge things that Allah has entrusted me. And I have to do something good about them, make use of them, care about them, be grateful with them, or share my love with them.
And it took me to my deepest realization that I should be much more more more and more grateful with my life. And I should not be the spoiled brat I used to be. Not anymore.
Hopefully it's not only my age that's getting bigger in number, but also my heart mind and soul that become wiser and fit what it takes to be a better human being.
haha.. kidding :p
