The Art of Acceptance

Most of the time, we must accept life on its terms because life has a way of unfolding. Its just the way it is, not as we will, but as it will. When events transpire that are beyond our control, we have an option: we can either learn the art of acceptance, or we can struggle miserably try to change the fate.

I live my life believing there are always a reason for things that happened. I just have to embrace every beauty, condition and situation encountered. I promise to give more, do at least one kindness every single day. Doesn't matter how small the kindness is because happiness is not something physical but more on what is inside and I realise it's transpired only by giving.

Life is the strangest things, mysterious and unexpected. You bumped into stranger and you felt connected by the empathy or probably the concern shown. We may live with the same person the rest of our life but the connection is almost not exist.

Acceptance is so liberating... I fight so many pointless battles and in the process have lost my way. I've forgotten what's important and as a consequence I waste time and energy. But now I have come to the point to accept and be able to let go. Life is great and will always be great.

April 2017

Life is great! Alhamdulillah.

I do not know where should I start. Waited for my mammogram result was the scariest moment I used to face. And the result confirmed that I am free from breast cancer and only having a few cysts, made me felt so relieve than keep guessing what the hell was the hard lump in my right breast.

I totally have to take in charge of my imbalance hormone from now on. It's more complicated and I have not taking it seriously before. It affected me in many ways but I am so grateful that I have job that I love that be able to divert me from think about it even though it was unavoidable most of the time.

2017 & Perhaps

How time flies, and I am feeling numb, feel a little melancholy and I have stop chasing. I am not post anything for such a long time except for my workshop schedule, perhaps I am losing words.


Life as a book maker/crafter was like a full circle, I keep doing and never know the ending. I don't have any projection on what my future likes, or what direction I should heading to. I am not and never a someone that so ambitious at the very beginning. I don't have specific target what I should achieve. Not that I do not achieve anything but maybe the way I see things are different. I always working hard and love my job, and I know that life going to be alright. It's more than I can hope for and I always being blessed and for that I can never thank enough to the creator and will always feel grateful.

I bump to many opportunities, meet people that always trust me. I always reward myself, but yet there are always an emptiness, something that I still longing for, and I have no clue what it was. Perhaps life is all about soul searching. I will keep going, keep looking and won't settle.


There are so many test I need to go through this month despite of my hectic schedule, a few bumping road I have to pass by. Perhaps when I know the answer, only then I will feel a little bit settle. Perhaps this is the most abstract thing I use to write. Hopefully tomorrow will be much brighter.
