Lie VS Truth

Hey people! I just really feel like sharing this with you all. So many times we believe in the lies that the devil whispers into our ears. If you read my previous blogs, you will discover that my heart is truly for all the girls out there who are struggling for acceptance. With that being said, these following sentences that I'm going to write would be more related to the girls (but boys, you are welcomed here!)

The Lie: I am not pretty/she's prettier than me.
The Truth: You are pretty in your own way! Quit comparing yourself with others. For you are fearfully & wonderfully made, His works are wonderful and you are one of His works! (Psalm 139:14)

The Lie: I am an accident.
The Truth: You are NOT an accident! God has a PURPOSE for you! Before He formed you in your mother's womb, He knew the plans for you. Before you were born, you were set apart. (Jeremiah 1:5)

The Lie: I have no future.
The Truth: You have a FUTURE! In fact, God says "For I know the plans I have for you, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope". Surely, there is hope!

The Lie: I need a man to feel loved.
The Truth: YOU are LOVED! This is a very important thing that you have to remember. You are precious and honored in God's sight and HE LOVES YOU (Isaiah 43:4) He really really does and isn't His love MORE than ENOUGH?

I can write down a thousand lies that I used to hear from people around me and also from the enemy. "You are not smart enough", "You are not good enough", "You don't have what it takes" and so on.. Believe it or not, although I already translated for many speakers in big events, sometimes I still hear the voice inside my head saying that I can't speak English and I am not capable in writing nor speaking in English (As a matter of fact, I am writing this in English)! Such a silly lie, isn't it? But sometimes what is sillier is that I buy that lie. Guys, I know that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the power of this dark world and against our own human mind! Stop listening to those lies in your mind! I really encourage you to go back to Word of God everytime you struggle with insecurity and acceptance. I am far from perfect and I know that we are in this journey together. So, let's fight the good fight! Of course, with not our own strength but with the strength from God.

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 …
