At Least, Make Your Days Lighter

I used to be faithful to the vintage mode: always tuck your top into the bottom. I found it elegant, and fun at first.  But lately I've been thinking how attached I am to this method that I feel insecure when I don't slip my t-shirt inside the waist ban. And sometimes I'm afraid some fashion rules are real and I should not look like I'm fat. I don't know.  Since I started being effortless about these stuff, I found that...I sweat small stuff and make it a reason to destroy my mood. Then I shop because I thought it's the clothes' fault. Silly, huh?

So, babe. Let loose.  Fashion rules are just for fun. And, no, the problem is not in your belongings but your mind. Be a mindful fashionista, if you're a fashionista.

Plus, people judge you by your cover. Whether you're financially rich or not. Do you think it is actually fair? Make a statement. You are not what you wear, but you should be happy with whatever you wear, even a single piece of boxer and sleeveless old tee. 

"Jangan gitu di depan orang ya. Malu." (don't do that in front of people--it's a shame!)
OMG, how dramatic people is. If you actually pee or poo in public, opened-air, ok, it's a shame. And not appropriate. Pffft. But, hello? Sneeze? Yawn? Cough? Laugh? WHISTLE? I don't get it when my Mom said I must not whistle in public.  But someone from Kampung Naga, a traditional village in West Java said, it's a taboo to whistle since it's going to call an evil ghost. I respect it. But I want to whistle just everywhere...besides a funeral. Well, no one may forbid you to do things you love that doesn't even harm a mosquito. Right? (anyway, kids and animals always accept your random acts, so.)

 Note this: Be full with everything you're doing. When you're talking to someone, concentrate only on her/him. In the other condition when you're talking with someone on the phone or chatroom, try to be focused, at least for 10 minutes--if the person keep replying. That's the purpose of smartphone: you can postpone some words, but you actually still have to respect your friend. Except he's a spam-message writer. :p

By focusing, you'll gain more quality. Trust me.

Some people will say it's insane, but, smiling at strangers is fun. Somehow. As long as you smile only at 3 people, not 10 people in a row. It sounds a little bit creepy... But, hey, who cares! You may not recognized who are they, but you've made their day brighter (or full of curiousity).

Do it once in a week, pals. Smile is a resiprocative action. Smiling at each other makes both person involved feel better! So, smile! :)

Earth Month Poem

I can smell a little part of nature,
whispering to me. 

"Hey, human, we're not that helpless. I think you guys are helpless.  
You're drown in the delutional life of unstoppable greed cycle. Panic. Tense. Angry. 
Look at us. Simple. Growing. Enjoying some morning dew. 
Doin' our best in our part of life. 
Not complaining about the rain, though it's heavy. 
Being grateful. And take a deep breath. 
Sunlight, burning yet giving us life.
Accepting the destiny--as plant.
I know you're not a plant, human. But listen, we're from the same source.
We're creature. Different, but similar.
We've been watching you. Running around finding a bunch of gold. 
Only to satisfy your soul in a few minutes. And never, never actually satisfied. 
If you live with the harmonious rhythm, you'll find your happiness. Soon."

And then, another thing about human that I heard from thunderstorm, volcano, and earthquake.
"Sometimes people blame us. Labelling us as a punishment from God.  Oh, hello. 
We've been there before you invade the Earth. We're always there. 
We're not showing off. Or trying to kill you. 
We're a part of the rhythm. 
Without us, the Earth will remain still, 
or maybe feel a despair.
It's just you and us need to cooperate."

I smile a little. 
Maybe. Maybe it's just my mind, exploring too far. 
But isn't it possible? We make the world as an exhausting playground. 
We look away from reality--
that we live with nature. Not above the nature. 

Love them, respect them. Respect each other.
