Tidak sampai 3 minggu setelah saya mem-posting ini, saya bertemu dengan dia. Seharusnya saya bertemu dengan kawannya; yang entah kenapa pada hari itu tidak jadi datang. Mungkin di sana ada campur tangan Tuhan. Akhirnya, hari itu, dia yang menyapa kejemuan saya. Kami bercipika-cipiki, berbasa-basi, ketawa-ketiwi, dan saya bersikap seolah tak pernah ada yang terjadi.

Kemudian tiba-tiba dia berkata,”Hei, gue masih ngutang traktir lo makan siang, ya?”

Saya cuma tertawa dan melambaikan sebelah tangan–seolah-olah ingin mengatakan “Ah, no big deal.”

Andai dia tahu 🙂

This year, I learned to accept the days when I don't feel motivated, tired, or a bit grumpy. I learned to allow myself to sit with this feeling instead of feeling guilty about it and forcing myself to be productive, socialize, or just get things done.

In the end, self-care is not always about doing the things that make us feel good or give us instant gratification. It's also about doing the RIGHT thing: something that is good for us in the long run—even if it may feel hard at times.

Hi. I'm HANNY
I am an Indonesian writer and an artist/illustrator based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I love facilitating writing/creative workshops and retreats, especially when they are tied to self-exploration and self-expression. In Indonesian, 'beradadisini' means being here. So, here I am, documenting life—one word at a time.
