"I have too many flaws to be perfect. But I have too many blessings to be ungrateful."
Hello again, dreamers! I realized I haven't talked much about myself in this blog, I usually just told you about my outfit, that's it. So, I want to start something new this year which is some inspirations for us to live a better life. I must admit that I'm not really good in writing a long story or talk about myself like this, but I'll try.
Learn to be thankful is one of my resolutions for 2016. To be honest, I was full of complaints. I was too focused chasing things I want that I forgot about everything I already got. Sometimes I also thought about how lucky another people are; how pretty and nice body they have, how this, how that. I didn't think about how lucky I am to have nice parents, family, and friends; how lucky I am to get a chance to do things I love, how lucky I am to have a healthy body, etc. Sometimes we are too busy counting others blessings that we forget to count our own. Trust me, when I finally realized the importance to be thankful, I'm happier.
I was the type to take people's words a little too seriously, it'd affect my mood the whole day or I would just think about it everyday. For the example is my friends like to tease me about my body, saying I'm fat or I have big legs or I'm muscular, etc. I didn't even care about it before, but they kept teasing me so I became self-conscious. Every time I wanted to wear something, I thought about people's opinion; would they say something bad again if I wear this? Do I look fat in this outfit? The result of those thoughts is: I'm not happy.
So, I tried not to think about those words. Some of them might say it as a joke because we're close, some of them might just say it without any meaning behind it. God already gave me this kind of body shape, so I must be thankful rather than hating it. I'm healthy and it's more than enough. At least I do some exercises now to have a healthier lifestyle ( I was just eating all the time, lol).

Okay, that's enough for this post. I need to learn how to write a better story-telling post, hahaha. Let's be more thankful, life is too short to be unhappy ㅠ ㅠ
Anyway, I wore this outfit to Puncak and you can see my hair was not as long as now because I just cut it around that time. Puncak used to be so cold but when I went there, it was just...hot. I wore tee inside this jumper and I'm glad I did because I could just remove the jumper when it's hot. I always want to take outfit photos on tennis court and it's finally happened. Although it's already an abandoned tennis court but I love the results. We also visited Taman Bunga Nusantara and I'll show you on the next post so stay tuned!
