Dream Big Dreams? No, Dream with big God!

Well, I guess this blog won’t be titled “Dream Big Dreams” if I don’t talk about dreams! I talk about dreams a lot but I realized I should be talking more about the Dream-Giver, Jesus Christ! So many times in our lives (especially my life) we’re too focused on reaching our dream that we forget above all that, it’s more important to focus on Jesus, the Dream-Giver. When our dream doesn’t come to pass, we will be disappointed and dragged down in a deep deep pit if we miss the main point! The main point is not about reaching your dream but the main point is being drawn to Jesus in the journey of reaching that dream! If our dream doesn’t draw us closer to God, then there must be something wrong with it. It’s either we’ve been so caught up in the obsession of achieving that dream or that the dream is not even God’s will for us. How many times in our lives we can’t differentiate between obsession and commitment. Obsession is when we are stressed out because things don’t go the way we planned and we still try to make those things happen but commitment is when things don’t go the way we planned but we choose to still be happy, relax and trust in God. That’s commitment. Today I want to choose commitment over obsession. I want to be committed to God, to His plan and to His decree and won’t be obsessed with my dream, no matter how perfect or “glorifying God” it may sound. Sometimes it seems like I already understood the Christian’s “Christian thing” but actually nothing is more Christian then surrendering our lives to Christ!

Surrender = paradosi (greek) = giving up = submitting = abiding


The act of surrendering is actually not just a one-time act, I learned that the act of surrendering should be practiced on a daily basis. Surrender, surrender, surrender until it becomes a habit and then becomes a character, a character of someone who’s truly surrendered to Christ and His will.

Surface Skin Habit

Surface Skin Habit


Hi girls! Jumat lalu, aku berkesempatan untuk mencoba Hydra Facial di Surface Skin Habit yang berlokasi di lantai dasar Cilandak Townsquare (Citos). Tempatnya lucu & cozy bangeet..


Aku ingin share sedikit nih tentang pengalaman-ku waktu facial untuk pertama kali di Surface Skin Habit :)

Pas pertama kali masuk, langsung suka banget sama atmosphere and ambience-nya yang super homey and cozy. Staff-nya juga ramah banget so I really feel welcomed there..

When I first got there, yang mereka lakuin adalah men-register data aku.. Nama, Umur, Riwayat alergi kulit dsb. Setelah itu, nggak beberapa lama kemudian, mereka langsung bawa aku ke suatu ruangan dimana aku bisa berkonsultasi langsung dengan dokternya tentang kulit aku. Ruangannya juga nyaman dan bersih (that's the most important thing!) Naah.. disitu aku konsul ke dokter-nya kalau kulit aku sebenernya ga terlalu berjerawat tapi sering ada bruntusan atau komedo kecil2.. Ternyata, setelah aku konsul, memang komed…

Keep Moving Forward

I think this is the biggest lesson that I’ve learned in my life.. We experience loss, heartache and pain in this life but we have to choose to keep moving forward. I remember when I didn’t win Miss Indonesia 2013, I was really sad.. I could say that God knows the best but still I was disappointed at myself at that time and that was the time when I had to choose to move forward.. When I lost my dad in the beginning of 2017, I could just choose to lock myself in my room and cry every single day, but I knew that I had to move forward. When I got rejected by a company, I could just keep blaming myself and stop trying but I just moved forward.. it’s so easy to say it when we don’t know exactly what that person has been going through. I don’t think you would say “just move forward” when someone’s child was killed by a reckless person.. you wouldn’t say “just move forward” when someone is diagnosed with a chronic disease.. we don’t say things like that. That’s the thing. Whether it’s an emot…

How to be happy?

It’s been 2 weeks since I posted my blog in the beginning of this year. Within 2 weeks, so many things have happened. Good things and bad things. Sometimes we can’t stop the bad things from happening in life and when that happens, usually we forget all of the good things that we have or those we once had. In the beginning of this year, I wrote about choosing to be happy as my New Year’s resolution but I broke that off already :p There were days that I was so grumpy and unhappy.
As I’m sitting on my bed right now, I am thinking to myself “I wrote about choosing to be happy but I never wrote about how to be happy??” Let’s say, you already CHOOSE to be happy now but you don’t know HOW to be happy in the middle of the chaos and all of your problems. HOW to be happy when everyone around you is one step ahead of you and you’re still at the same place where you were last year. HOW to be happy when you have to pay the bill but the amount in your bank account is not sufficient. HOW to be happy …
