Marriage talks so typical

It always be both pleasant and strain talks when the topic is marriage.

Smile is always there, but long deep breathe used to precede every words my heart has spoken. It could be a symbol of consideration, carefulness, doubt, or even deep-thought for something I yet understand or think about.

But, like the other life game, it forces me to keep progressing on something I believe to bring happiness for millions of hearts. Marriage feeds love and happiness to the hearts of parents, families, friends and last but not least, the lovely one.

Doa Tanpa Tedeng Aling-Aling

IMG-20160819-WA0009
Syukur atas Sepak Bola. Hal. 106.

Beberapa pekan lalu, saya membeli sebuah buku doa karya G.P. Sindhunata, SJ. Judulnya, Dari Jurang yang Dalam: Kumpulan Doa Padupan Kencana. Buku ini diterbitkan oleh Penerbit Boekoe Tjap Petroek tahun 2014 dan diperoleh melalui lapak buku online.

Tidak seperti buku doa Katholik yang mudah didapat di toko rohani atau tempat peziarahan, buku ini menyajikan doa-doa yang menurut pribadi saya sangat relevan dengan masalah sehari-hari dan pertanyaan-pertanyaan spiritualitas manusia. Si penyusun buku, Romo Sindhu, menyentuh ruang-ruang ekspresi manusia yang jamak timbul dalam interaksi kepada Tuhan-nya.

Sejatinya, semangat doa dalam buku ini tidak berbeda dengan doa yang umumnya dijumpai umat Katholik. Hanya saja, ekspresi dan permohonan pendoa ditampilkan lebih telanjang tanpa ini itu sehingga doa tidak hanya jadi sarana bersyukur melainkan juga bercerita sejujur-jujurnya, telanjang, tanpa tedeng aling-aling.

A friend leaving us

I was shocked this morning. A Whatsapp group told me that a college friend Kristina Rintik died this morning at a hospital in Bintaro.

Tragically, as a friend of her, I don’t even know she suffered from something. The last update I knew about Rintik  was that she married her man last December.

“You need some rest”

Today is the second day I don’t go to the office because I don’t have one. Last week, I officially resigned from my position at a business risk consultant.

Days before my last day, I asked my girlfriend, “Hey, I’m still looking for new job and I haven’t got one. You sure I’m doing this?”

“Sure. Take some rest! You need it desperately . It was only a couple day after you finished your thesis revision, you started working at your first office. And it was only a three-day trip to Yogyakarta that separates your moving to the second office. Have a breathe, man!” Continue reading ““You need some rest””

Things I’ve missed

Every decision has its consequences. The challenge is how to deal with it.

I’ve walked on pretty different kind of living in last half year, since I moved to a new office. Many things I lost due to this decision. At the same time, I’ve got a lot of options in managing my spare time.

Without reducing a bit of my gratitude for what He has given to me, honestly I kind of missing the things: Continue reading “Things I’ve missed”
