Life Reflection On The Art Of Living In The Moment

Life Reflection On The Art Of Living In The Moment

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. 

Anyway…

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 💖

    Talking about life is a mystery.
    It’s hard for me to be in the present. My brain always suggests to me with the future, what if…
    And sometimes I’m afraid of that.
    But, after all, I’m trying for being in the present, trying for being mindful because I live here, at this time.

    1. Thank you Mbak Pipit for coming to my blog again hehe <3

      Also thank you for your wish to Abe! Will definitely let my friends know ☺️
      I agree mbak Pipit! Sometimes we have to learn how to be present and bring our awareness in our life.

  4. Hi mba Aqma,

    Selamat untuk kelahiran anak sahabat baik mba, yah 😍 Hehehehe. Saya selalu senang dengar berita kelahiran, it means ada kehidupan baru yang hadir ke dunia. Setiap kali sahabat atau teman dan kenalan saya melahirkan, rasanya saya ikutan bersuka cita dengan mereka 😆

    By the way, saya follow blog mba di readinglist tapi nggak ke luar update-annya. Huhu. Saya jadi nggak sadar ternyata mba ada update post baru 😅

    1. Aww terima kasih Mbak Eno nanti aku sampein ke sahabat aku hehe 💖

      Aku juga seneng banget dengan berita kelahiran, bayi-bayi gemassh dan lucu.. tapi sayangnya gara-gara covid ini, aku jadi belum sempet untuk berkunjung ke tempat mereka.. sedih 😢

      Nah itu dia mbak, aku masih newbie banget di dunia perbloggingan jadi kadang-kadang masih gaptek tentang perfollow-followan haha.. aku rencanya mau buat email-subscribtion list, tapi masih dalam proses haha.. somoga aku cepet ngertinya ya 🤣

  5. Omg entah kenapa aku terharuu sekali dengan cerita kelahiran anak sahabatmu. Teringat pengalamanku sendiri waktu selesai keluar dari ruangan operasi, sahabatku menelpon mengucapkan selamat dan kami nangis berduaan 😂 Congratulation yaa atas kelahiran little Abe dan selamat juga naik pangkat menjadi tante hihi

    Masih mencoba terus untuk mastering the art of living in the moment. Sometimes aku suka terlalu fokus hal-hal tertentu sehingga aku lupa momen sekarang ini udah pergi begitu aja. Jadi makasih yaa untuk reminder-nya tentang ini 😊

    1. Terima kasih mbak Jane <3

      Iya mbak sama-sama, aku seneng banget bisa lihat sahabatku melahirkan dan keduanya sehat-sehat ☺️
      Sampe senengnya aku bisa nulis blopost ini karena terinspirasi haha

  6. This is the sweetest! 😭
    I’m in still in the middle of getting a grip of my new life as a mama, and your writing brought me to tears huhuu.

    Indeed, we gotta treat moments of life as a baby wanting to come out sekarang juga pokoknya hahaha. Babies decide how and when they come out to this world, and when the time comes, we gotta go through the inevitable pain (either mules or sakit dibius etc), but afterwards we feel incredible happiness. Oh tentu akan ada pain lagi, tapi trus happy lagi, so it really is a cycle of life.

    Well done ma, salam sayang dari Abe yg udah mau magrib belum bangun astaga blm mandi sore 😅

    1. Wiii I love that you like this writing <3

      Love you sahabatku teralay haha.. duh pasti si Abe besok sealay kamu deh haha
      A cycle of life is beautiful indeed ☺️
