Reflection – ranting

Just yesterday I told myself to stop ranting, today I am using the same word “ranting” for my posting title.

Please just consider it a sign that I’ll write longer than haiku, my favorite type of poem.

Ok, so….
I stand in front of mirror everyday, at least twice a day.
And I see the same person, me–
But with different expressions. Sometimes I look ok, sometimes not. Sometimes I look fresher, sometimes dull and duller. Sometimes I look beautiful, sometimes ugly and uglier. But most of all I feel that I can look better than current condition.

Is that normal? Let’s say yes.

The only thing that is not normal is…. How can I say to myself again and again that I can look better than this but then the next day I can feel that I look worse?
Is it because I don’t commit to look better?
Or is it my mind hijacking me?

Whatever.

Let’s do this again: stand in front of the mirror, say to myself “Hey, You. You are you yourself. If you realize that it is yourself, don’t compare yourself to others cause whomever they are you compare yourself with won’t ever reach your level and nor will you to theirs. You have your own pedestal to be you. And they have theirs to be them. Stop feeling more or less. It is you, the best you however you are.”

And, now I’m standing in front of my real reflection.

Does it guarantee I’m a good person?

No…. It is just a ranting old lady. šŸ™‚

Good Weekend (bilingual)

Living being is just the same, everywhere you are some negatives are coming in any form they’d like to be. What’s your response? Up to your good deed.

Just last week my friend was withdrawn from her function in a big company as immigration specialist. She’d been a contractor administering all ins and outs of expatriates matter in that office. A good job and contracted to a good big company, good money and bunch of good friends and colleagues – unfortunately, she could not expect a good boss. Her boss never thought her job was well done even if it was because she didn’t get sufficient support from her immediate supervisor. What could she do? All her work could just proceed only with official stamp from another level up high which she could not obtain.

Not gonna talk about her in detail…. Just wanna highlight: No matter what you’ve been facing this all week: bad clients, bad customers, bad bosses, bad co-workers, bad friends, bad food, bad health, anything bad: Just ignore them ALL and have a good weekend!!!

Namaste….

====================

Orang hidup dimana-mana sama, yang negatif-negatif bisa datang dalam bentuk apapun asal mereka suka. Respons kamu gimana? Tergantung niat baik.

Minggu lalu teman saya ditarik dari fungsi dia sebagai spesialis keimigrasian di sebuah perusahaan besar. Dia ini pekerja outsource yang ditempatkan di perusahaan itu oleh perusahaan outsource tempatnya bekerja untuk mengurus tetek-bengek keimigrasian para ekspatriat. Kerjaan bagus dan di-outsource di perusahaan besar yang bagus, uang yang bagus, teman-teman dan kolega kerja yang bagus – sayangnya dia nggak bisa ngarepin boss yang bagus. Boss dia nggak pernah puas dengan kerjaan dia yang dianggap kurang beres dalam beberapa hal; padahal yang terjadi adalah supervisor dia nggak memberikan dukungan yang cukup supaya dia bisa menyelesaikan pekerjaannya. Bayangkan deh kalian mau menyelesaikan tugas tapi tanpa stempel atasan kalian nggak bisa menuntaskannya. Masihkah itu salah kalian?

Nggak mau ngomongin dia secara detil kokā€¦. Cuma mau stabilo-in: Apapun yang kalian hadapi minggu lalu: klien yang nggak ngenakin, pengguna jasa yang nggak ngenakin, boss yang nggak ngenakin, temen kerja yang nggak ngenakin, temen gaul yang nggak ngenakin, makanan yang nggak enak, kesehatan yang buruk, pokoknya semua-mua yang nggak bagus: Abaikan SEMUA itu dan nikmati akhir pekan sebaik-baiknya!!!

Salam hormatkuā€¦.
