The Value of Happiness

red leaf 2

“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” —Unknown

Our value of happiness should never depend on material things. So does our confidence and self-concept. No one can influence or take it away from us, except ourselves. Except we allow people to do that.

Mereka yang memiliki self-awareness dan self-confidence yang baik, sadar akan plus minus dan potensi dirinya tanpa harus memberi banyak penjelasan ke orang lain. They know their self-worth well.

Nggak perlu pengakuan dari orang lain kalau kita bahagia dan penuh percaya diri.

Nggak perlu juga nebeng nama orang yang punya kedudukan atau jabatan untuk bisa membaur dan bersosialisasi dengan orang lain.

Nggak perlu barang-barang bermerk, make up canggih ala grup lenong atau logo kendaraan yang kita gunakan, untuk mendefinisikan siapa kita dan bagaimana cara kita berpikir.

Absolutely no. It’s here within ourselves. It has nothing to do with what other people say or think about us. Nor with those things we wear or buy.

Mereka yang memiliki konsep diri yang baik selalu paham, dirinya cukup berharga tanpa harus menjadi orang lain yang bukan dirinya.

Tanpa harus mengejar label prestise dan gengsi dari manusia lainnya.

Tanpa haus pengakuan bahwa dirinya adalah pribadi sempurna tanpa cela.

Well, to be flawed is a human. There is no such thing as a perfect life or a perfect humanbeing.

So what if we have a bad day? It’s just a bad day, not a bad life. So what if we make a mistake? Isn’t everybody does?

Be happy with who you really are.

Be proud of being you, the one and only in this universe.

Be thankful of everything Allah has given to you.

Be entitled of your honest opinion about yourself.

Stay pure, stay happy, stay limited, stay doing your own way, stay fearlessy authentic. Stay being the best version of yourself.
