Being gentle with yourself.

Being gentle means many things. It means not expecting yourself to be perfect by tomorrow morning. Hello, kita ni bukan Hulk ok. Tiba-tiba badan jadi hijau. Eh, Hulk kan nama dia? Haha. Chill and give yourself time to grow.

You know what; it’s also means forgiving yourself when you mess up. And who hasn’t done that? We should learn from our mistakes, but we shouldn’t beat ourselves up over them. The past is just that, past.  Learn what went wrong and why. Make ammends if you need to. Then drop it and move on.

‘One of the keys of happiness,’ says Rita Mae Brown, ‘is a bad memory.’ Yeah i agreed with that. It’s actually a big advantage of bad memory. But nobody wants that, right?


Are you carrying your mistakes, regrets and pain from the past? Perhaps you need to allow yourself to soak in fresh water for a while. Letting go a burden and giving yourself a second chance may just be the deposit  you need right now.

Truly ‘learning to love yourself,’ as Whitney Houston sings, ‘is the greatest at all.’

Guys, close your eyes. Fikirkan semua nikmat yang Allah berikan pada kita. Banyakkan? Maka bersyukurlah :)
