Stop Complaining

 

The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.

Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.

One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.

One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.

One of them
Missed his bus.

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.

One’s
Car wouldn’t start.

One couldn’t
Get a taxi.

The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..

Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,

This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment

“If you want to succeed in your life, remember this phrase: That past does not equal the future. Because you failed yesterday; or all day today; or a moment ago; or for the last six months; the last sixteen years; or the last fifty years of life, doesn’t mean anything… All that matters is: What are you going to do, right now?”

Dear,

I phoned Mamu right after i arrived in my flat in Kampung Inggris several weeks ago. He asked me to phone him since he worried about me. He knew that my trip to Kediri was my first time. And for the first time staying without my family. I’ve said him before, through email, that i met my friend in Kediri so i’d be fine. but he kept asking me to phone him. Okay. I phone him for the first time, since my English is broken i always made excuse i couldn’t phone him.

Before i phoned him, i have practiced listen to Indian actor talking in English. My God, i couldnt catch that actor’s English. And it was as same as when i talked to Mamu. I felt such an idiot. I couldn’t get his English at all, okay only one thing before i ended up the conversation. i only talked about 17 minutes. And you know, the stupid me, i didn’t set the cheaper way for international call so i lost much credit, i spent 110.000 Rupiahs. LOL. i didn’t care at that time, but now i feel like “i can buy 2 books with that amount, my God!!.”

After that, he mailed me and explain about what he said on the phone, he wrote that he could get my English and understood if i couldnt get his English. And he informed me that US people talks 8 words per minute while Indian people talks 20 words per minute. Wow, no wonder!

Life

Life.
If this life is a movie
Allah is the director
And I am the actor
Who playing the manuscript of life which has written on His book, called Lauh Mahfuzh.
If this life is a country
Allah is the law maker
And I am the citizen
Who running the rules of life, act upon what He said on His book, called Quran.
I can make lot of plans
But Allah the Only One who decide
He is the One-Knowing what the exact time
What the best line
I only can hope within du’a (prayer)
Because du’a is the weapon for believer
And fate can be changed with prayer.

-Geka.
