LightYou don’t run with the crowd, you go on your own way, you don’t play after dark, you light up my day. Got your own kind of style that sets you apart. Baby, that’s why you captured my heart.

I know sometimes you feel like you don’t fit in. And this world doesn’t know what you have within. When I look at you I see something rare: a rose that can grow anywhere, and there’s no one I know that can compare.

What makes you different makes you beautiful. What’s there inside you shines through me. In your eyes I see all the love I’ll ever need. What makes you different makes you beautiful to me.

You’ve got something so real, you touched me so deep. The material things don’t matter to me. So come as you are, you’ve got nothing to prove. You won me with all that you do, and I wanna take this chance to say to you:

“You don’t know how you’ve touched my life. Oh, there are so many ways, I just can’t describe. You taught me what love is supposed to be. It’s all the little things that made you beautiful to me.”

Everything in you is beautiful, love you give shines right through me. Everything in you is beautiful to me…

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.
