Expect the great things!

“Ah tomorrow’s gonna be another long tiring day..”

“This is gonna get harder..”

Sounds familiar? I don’t know about you, but sometimes I can get so stressed out about tomorrow.. I worry about tomorrow too much that I can’t enjoy today. It’s so easy for me to think about how things won’t change in the future and it’s gonna be hard.


            Those who know me from the outside might think that I’m so positive and optimistic about life. But, honestly, so many times I feel afraid of the future.. Until yesterday, I was thinking about the future and I just realized that I was so negative! I was filled with so many fears, worries and doubts. Then I asked myself, “If I could imagine the bad things that can happen, why don’t I just imagine the good things?”. In life, there will be challenges and hardships but don't have low expectations in life just because we live in this fallen world. I don't want to spend my time worrying about the future. Instead, from now on, I will always expect the great things in the future.. We might hear people say  “Don’t have too much expectation in life or you’ll end up being disappointed!” hmm well, I used to believe that but now I WON'T! I wanna have great expectations in life. I expect to have a family, I expect to live in a cute apartment with my beloved husband and make a living out of my passion. I expect myself to be happy, alive and content. Does it sound wrong to you? for me, it sounds just RIGHT! Don't expect for the worst just because you don't wanna be disappointed. It's like being disappointed before you're actually getting disappointed! Ha. 

Expect the great things in life. Enjoy now. Have a big wild imagination! You are just one step closer to your imagination! So imagine the good things and dream BIG dreams.

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 …
