Hi online friends! How are you?
A little update about life: Last week was such an intense week. I planned to write the blog on October 11, but life happened in the middle of my writing. So, here we go, finally I finished it; a reflection on life at the moment <3
A Beautiful News: Little Abe
Do you remember Kemala? A friend of mine (the girl who is driving the scooter in the picture). I feel like I wrote her name so many times in my blog haha…
So.. Kemala (Hi Kems!) aka my ‘kismin backpacking sister’ gave birth to little Abe on the double ten day (October 10, 2020). My heart felt so full. So many things seem so beautiful when a new life comes to your life. How I see life is shifting, so many possibilities arise with his presence. My heart smile from ear to ear experiencing Mala’s happiness.
A baby that symbolize pure heart and an extraordinary precious gift we called life.
Life..life..life, the cycle of life. What is the purpose of life? How do you see life when you know all of the unknown? All of the questions about life is always keeping me on my toes.
I used to be scared to ask question about life, but with the time passed by, I became more intrigued with the questions. Not to chase the answer, but merely to keep me in check with my present (hmm… do you guys also write a note about life questions in your mind? or is it just me? I’m that weird sometimes haha).
The art of living in the moment for me is being present and let the answers of life question unfold itself with time, according with my timeline. I guess this way, I can fully be present no matter where I am in my timeline (does this make sense? I hope it does ). Everybody journey is different from one to another. I guess this is when the art of living in the moment can healthily take a seat.
To be honest, I’m also still struggling to live in the moment even though I’ve realized that it drained my energy unconsciously. But I know for sure that living in the moment will give us a sense of freedom in many ways, such as in expression our current feelings.
Life is beautiful. A new life has reminded me that there are hopes. Sometimes we just forget how beautiful life is.
Life itself is a gift, even with all the struggles.
I don’t think we can talk about life without the struggles. The struggle is inevitable; it is where and when the growth take a place.
At this section, was the time I’d spent the most of my time writing. I came into conclusion that it’d be hard to scale everyone various struggles to fit into the word “struggles” throughout somebody’s life. Everyone is fighting their own battle. Remember the ‘life happened in the middle of my writing’ part? I stopped at this part because something unexpected happened in my life and I had to re-approach on how I should write things down.
A New Life Is A New Beginning, So Is Every Moment
Mala told me that she didn’t plan to gave a birth on October 10 because she realized that the hospital would be full, because so many parents wanted to gave birth on that ‘beautiful’ date. But turned out, little Abe wanted to come out on that day… (I don’t think that Mala could do anything about it, except to let him out haha).
On that moment, Mala’s live has changed.
Sometimes we got stuck with he definition of time as a chance or the start of something new. But the thing is, the time in our mind is borderless. A new day, countless Monday, turns to weeks, months, and with a blink, years would have passed.
Here is the question:
“What will happen if we treat the chance for the life we desired as our ‘baby’?”
Like you have no choice but let him out too, right?
I know what you’re thinking… Sometimes I don’t even know how my brain works either haha. But seriously tho, how different our life would be?
The beauty of living in the present that counts every moment and second as the precious gift of life. Life is beautiful indeed.
Thank you little Abe for reminding and inspiring me to write this. You are truly the gift of life. Also congratulations to Kemala and Fatkhur as new parents to Abe. Much love for your little family of 3
