Berdoa! Berdoalah!

Setiap kali saya berdoa yang tinggi-tinggi, sering terdengar bisikan seperti "Doa setinggi itu udah usaha belum? Udah memantaskan diri belum? Udah siap kalo doanya diterima?" dan banyak pertanyaan lainnya berisi keraguan sok minta yang baik-baik emang situ udah oke? Yah begitulah kira-kira.

Saya sadar sering berdosa terlalu tinggi, terlalu muluk-muluk, terlalu detail. Haha. Lah terus kenapa? Hanya sama Allahkan kita bisa meminta apa saja? Allah maha mendengar, bahkan untuk impian kita yang seperti negeri dongeng, iya kan? Sama siapa lagi kalo bukan sama Allah kita bersimpuh, memohon dan menangis untuk cobaan yang terasa begitu berat?

Berdoa! Berdoalah!
Apapun yang kau minta, itu adalah urusanmu denganNya. Tak perlu malu, karena ia telah mengetahui segala kekuranganmu sejak lahir. Tak perlu takut, karena ia tahu batas kemampuanmu.

Dan jika belum terkabul, janganlah lantas merasa kecewa karena sesungguhnya Ia telah mempersiapkan yang lebih baik dari yang kau pinta ;)

Tulisan ini saya tulis karena kata-kata seorang teman beberapa waktu yang lalu.
Waktu itu saya lagi sangat gugup dan hopeless. Kalo lagi kek gitu suka gak sadar udah berdoa besar-besar "Ya Allah tolong dulue Ya Allah, memang susah iya tapi mauka blablabla dll dst dsb dkk" muehehehe ^^v
Trus salah seorang teman nyeletuk santai, "Eh anu orang dapat ini aja udah syukur"
HAAAAHH? #makjleb

Mungkin menurut dia, permintaanku terlalu tinggi. Tapi toh buktinya tidak untukNya. Dia mengabulkannya, terima kasih Ya Allah.

Yakinlah tidak ada yang sia-sia untuk setiap doa yang terucap padaNya...

Date A Girl Who Writes

 Date a girl who writes because she will be able to recall in detail the dialog between you two, and while it gets you in trouble, it’s endearing and sweet at the same time that she remembers. This also forces you to choose your words carefully and you will become an expert in diction.
Date a girl who writes because she understands the complexities of characters, and knows you are more than your successes, failures, winnings, or losses. She loves all the layers of you, all the deep parts and even the shallow. When you are acting like the villain, she will see the goodness in you. When you are the hero, she’ll still secretly admire your flaws. All the depths of you become her big adventure.

Date a girl who writes because she will give you the most beautiful settings you’ve ever seen. She writes about the paradises she imagines, the paradises she has been to, and shares them with you.

Date a girl who writes because sometimes a little silence is welcome.

Date a girl who writes because the post-it on your refrigerator reminding you to buy milk will be original and full of adorable metaphors. And because she is so creative, she’ll put the post-it in your shoe rather than on your fridge.

In the fairy tale that is your life together, she will always make you prince charming, and happily ever after is a guarantee.

Date a girl who writes because when the poetry dies, she will make sure her prose keeps you alive.

Date a girl who writes because she understands the value of word choice, and will mean everything she says to you.

Date a girl who writes because she will ask you interesting things like “What does your name mean?” so that she may use it in a book someday. Not to mention you get to have a better understanding of yourself when you Google your own name.

She’s always looking for the page-turner, which becomes quite exciting for you.

The storyline will never have to end. She will write all the sequels that keep your love breathing. And just so that you remember all the things you love about her, she’ll make sure to include prequels too.

You’ll never have to worry about dementia, amnesia, or Alzheimer’s in your later life. She has already written out your story so that you may remember each other forever.
Buying gifts for her is oh-so-simple because she knows the incredible worth of a pen and paper.
She’ll write you emails because the laptop is her friend, but prefers to show you how she cares by painstakingly writing you pages upon pages of letters when you two are separated.

Date a girl who writes because she can take criticism and turn it into wit, disappointment into accomplishment, and sadness into laughter with the wave of her pen.

Sex is like a dirty, raunchy romantic novel you don’t dare read in public.

She will spend her life coming up with a thousand different ways to tell you how incredible you are as she is not fond of repetition. But the words she will wear out is “I love you,” because even she knows there is no better substitute for them in the history of writing.

Date a girl who writes because you will be her muse, her inspiration. Without you, she will have writer’s block. Or write the greatest tragedy since Cleopatra and Mark Antony. Either way, you are the man she will always write.

Everyday she fascinates you with a new genre. Today she is Romance, tomorrow Philosophy.
Date a girl who writes because when the cold winter of life traps you in old age, there will be somebody there to describe for you the summers in Paris, heat in Arabian nights, and tropical forests in South America so that you feel the warmth of adventure as if you were there. And so, in the twilight of your life, you will feel the touch of youth.

And finally, you must date a girl who writes because it is she who will allow you to live forever. With just her pen, she will make sure that you never grow old nor die nor fade, remembered for generations to come. A character in one of her stories, you will be given the gift of immortality.

Date A Girl Who Reads

Pasti udah banyak yang baca Date A Girl Who Reads by Rosemarie Urquico ini.
Mmmh saya lebih suka Date A Girl Who Writes sih entah kenapa, padahal bukan penulis. Haha.

Date A Girl Who Reads

Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.
She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.
Buy her another cup of coffee.
Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent.  Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.
It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.
She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.
Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.
Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilightseries.
If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.
You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.
You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.
Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.
Or better yet, date a girl who writes.

The One

"Good luck trying to find someone who cares like i did, who understands you like i do, who is forgiving like i am. And when you realize there's no one out there like me, i won't be there where you left me." --Drake

Some good friends of mine have gone through such a hard time lately. Being the one who's listening to their stories mostly all of the time is making me know how they feel. One day, when I watched one of my favorite tv shows, how i met your mother, there was a scene where Marshall talked to Ted like this,

"Being in couple is hard. And committing, making sacrifices, it's hard. But if it's the right person, it's easy. Looking at that girl, and knowing she's all you really want out of life, that should be the easiest thing in the world. If it's not like that, then she's not the one."

Then suddenly this pops out from my mind; If you already find a person who is constantly on your mind, the one that makes you feel special, the one that makes your day, the one you can be complete around, then why bother looking for more? I mean, no one's perfect. Your partner isn't perfect, you neither. The only thing that you can do is loving someone imperfect perfectly. I know it is hard to commit to one person, but if it's the right person then it will be worth it. Because, you may not find that kind of person twice in your life.
Please, please fight for the one.
