Mungkin ia memang sudah berhenti merayakan. Sejak lama. Kini, setiap hari merupakan sebuah perayaan dan pemenuhan rasa syukur yang lain. Jeda satu tahun tak menjadikan satu hari lebih istimewa ketimbang yang tiga ratus enam puluh empat.

Dua puluh tujuh adalah perjalanan. Perjalanan jiwa. Perjalanan hati. Tak ada lagi yang menahannya di belakang. Dan mungkin, tak ada juga yang menunggunya di depan. Tapi tak mengapa. Ia sudah berhenti mencari tujuan.

Perjalanan adalah persinggahan demi persinggahan. Ia tahu, tidak ada yang selamanya. Ia juga tahu, langkah kaki bisa berubah arah. Tetapi biarkanlah hatinya yang menempuh perjalanan itu; dan langkahnya hanya menuruti bahagia.

Karena bukankah itu yang semua orang cari?

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.
