Forrest Gump's mom said that life is like a box of chocolate. You never know what you are gonna get.
That’s who I am trying to be, at this point.
I used to be so skeptical about everything. See the bad in everyone, preparing only for the worst, giving up just because it seems rather impossible.
It’s not without a cause. I had my reason. Somewhere along the line, I decided to be a skeptic. Because things would hurt less, or so I thought. And hell, it was easier.
I used to think that positive people are annoying, that they’re (mostly) delusional. And hoping is for the weak. Which I’m obviously wrong.
Well, I still see overly-postive people that way though, hehe.. But I get that they’re trying and if you ever get to see their struggle to keep the positive mind, you’ll be impressed. Because hanging on, forgiving, and things that positive people do are not for the faint-hearted. They’re not easy. It takes effort.
I finally able to see that skeptic is actually the one that’s weak. They snort and mean. Which I was.
So I’m glad that I could say that I’m going to retire from being one. It’s gonna be a rough journey but nothing worth it, is easy, huh?
Wish me luck?
P.s: professional skepticism is still needed though.
Disuatu sore yang cerah menuju GBK untuk jadwal lari malam kami..
Gue: hasil medcheck kemarin, kolesterol gue ternyata tinggi nih.
Gue: 254! Parah banget kan?
Temen: wah mirip sama bapakku dulu..
Gue: terus bapakmu gimana?
Temen: udah meninggal gara2 itu.
I certainly need to change my lifestyle.
Notes: I don't smoke, I don't drink (alcohol), I exercise regularly, but yeah.. shit happens. Look after yourself, people. There's no 'better late than never' for healthy issue. When it's late.. it just is.
