Motivation

Motivation

What was your strongest reason to do something? I mean, something that crazily drives you to act or behave in a certain way. Do you still remember what was it?

Some of you might say most of the reasons are money, reward, experience, or acknowledgement. Some even say game station, food, and toys. I think there is totally nothing wrong with all of them. Sometimes I got my motivation from those reasons as well.

And sometimes people get motivation in a very mysterious way. She is “The Altair“, a girl who turns my world upside down, from unmotivated person into a man who is willing to struggle to pursue his dreams. Read more

Illogical

How she smiles at me,
that’s how I find peace within my soul.
It sounds ridiculous, and it’s always the
way it happened. The only way my mind
cannot agree with my heart.

Her smile is irresistible to me.
Just like a drug, so beautiful, so fantastic.
In the other side, it is also so dangerous,
so wild, and yet addictive. And every time
I see it, I cannot refrain to keep staring on it.
I know I should have stopped all the things
before it’s gone too far. But I just can’t.

Her existence is like drinking salt water
>while thirst devouring my tongue.
I perhaps feel a little bit better at the
beginning, a little bit less thirsty for awhile.
But it wouldn’t be so long before my tongue
agonizing more pain of thirst.

It repeated every time we met.
My brain rebels while my heart enjoys the flow.
And there are illogical things happened in between.

Love Letter

Dear Adiks,
 
I used to hate saying “I Love You” and others flirting words to a girl. Besides it sounds cliche for me, I also believe that action speaks louder than words. I used to laugh at other guys when they flirt on their girls. But do you know what? Now there are thousands similar words swarm inside my head urge to be expressed, and I bet you don’t want to hear all of those boring words. I need to make it short but how am I suppose to express all of them? While those common three words can’t even depict the magnitude nor the depth of my emotions. I want to be able to create a new metaphor that would erupt like a volcano when you read my message, so hopefully you will understand my heart condition now. Unfortunately I can’t, this is just too much, I’m not a poet who can produce romantic sentences like all women always dreamed of. Instead of being romantic, I’d prefer to illustrate my feeling in the way I treat you, the way I share my affection. But special in this occasion, please let me show my tremendous feeling by saying “I LOVE YOU MY DEAREST!!!”.
 
Deepest feeling 
Kakaks

I think the universe is on my side
Heaven and Earth have finally aligned
Days are good and that’s the way it should be

You sprinkle star dust on my pillow case
It’s like a moonbeam brushed across my face
Nights are good and that’s the way it should be

Potongan lirik Bright dari Echosmith ini tak bosan-bosannya ku ulang beberapa hari belakangan. Suara yang merdu ditambah alunan musik yang lembut menjadi kombinasi yang pas untuk didengar, belum lagi lirik yang mengena dengan pengalaman pribadi. Sungguh kolaborasi sempurna pemicu banjirnya dophamine di otakku. Sebuah hormon yang menyebabkan rasa bahagia dan ketergantungan akan sesuatu, sering juga disebut sebagai hormon cinta.

Berhubungan dengan komitmen

 sumber gambar: http://static.eharmony.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/readyforrelationship.jpg
Pernah mencoba berhubungan dengan komitmen?
Hubungan yg dimaksud disini adalah berhubungan tanpa status pacaran, dalam arti kedua pasangan membuat komitmen untuk ke depan, namun tidak memberi status dalam hubungan tersebut.
Istilahnya seperti single, but not available.
Jadi kalau ditanya “ masih single?,” jawabnya “iya”.
Tapi begitu ditawarin dikenalkan dengan orang lain, jawabnya “ Sorry, I’m not available“.
Tapi ada juga yang tetap menjalankan dengan status “in a relationship“, namun tetap berkomitmen bahwa hubungan tersebut akan berakhir di pelaminan, atau setidaknya tidak membuka hubungan untuk orang lain alias sold out.
