Choose Your Life and Live Your Life

That statement is taken from product's slogan. I see it in the street and I think about it. Well, that's a simple slogan but have a big meaning.

As a child, maybe our parents always tell us about what we must do in our life. In fact, that's for our self. As a child, we don't need to choose our life, because our parents will do that for us. But, when we in an adult life, we must choose our life by our self, or maybe, in teenage life, we need to choose our life, but still in the parents control. When we are in an adult life, we will totally choose our life, and as a parent, we must choose the best way for our child.

After we choose our life, we must live our life. What we have choose, we must do that. We can't choose something if we don't want to do that. So, everything you have choose, you must do that with your heart.

Now, I'm a junior high school student. I'm in 9th grade now. 1 year later, I will become a senior high school student. I live in west of Surabaya, but my school is located at the east of Surabaya. I need 45 to go to school.

When I was in 8th grade, I really want to study in where my brothers study. At that time, my brothers are in 10th grade. I want to have a same school with them. Well, I think their school isn't bad. So, I want to study in their school too, but, it change now...

Since I'm in 9th grade, I have many friends. I know that my friends really kind to me. Every time I need them, they will be there to help me. Not only friends, I have many teachers. Teachers will hear my problems when I tell it to them. Of course, they will give the best solution to me. I'm really happy about that.

Because of my teachers, friends, and of course, a good education system, I want to continue my study in where I'm studying now. Moreover, I get 75% discount if I'm school in there.

When I tell about that to my parents, my parents get angry to me and said that I must study in my brothers' school. I thought that my parents will hear my wish, and maybe agree with me. Well, I can't do anything. I can't study without my parents. So, I must follow what my parents said...

Because of that, I think the positive side. What my parents said, maybe it's the best to me. So, I try to trust it and try to receive it. I try to back with my first think, like when I was in 8th grade.

To choose our life isn't easy. What we choose, will bring a big impact to our life. One time we make a wrong decision, it would be fatal. So, don't think it's easy to make a decision. Think one more time that what you have chosen is the best for your self, your family, or your child

Apologize Lyrics

I'm holding on your rope
Got me ten feet off the ground
And I'm hearing what you say,
but I'm just can't make a sound.

You tell me that you need me
then you go and cut me down
but wait
You tell me that you're sorry
didn't think I'd turn around and say

That's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

I'd take another chance
take a fall take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat
but that's nothing new...

I loved you with the fire red
now it's turning blue
And you say sorry like the angel
heaven let me think was you
but I'm afraid

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

I'm holding on your rope
Got me ten feet off the ground

Forgive and Sorry

Forgive and Sorry are important things.. Forgive and sorry determine our relationship with other people...
Can we forgive all people that make mistakes to us?
God teaches us to forgive each other. He teaches us to forgive our enemy.
But, can we do that easily?

It's not easy. To forgive our enemy is hard. Maybe we can say it easily, but we can't do like what we have said. To forgive all people that made mistakes to us is hard. Sometimes, we can't forgive our friends that made mistakes to us. Then, how can we forgive our enemy??

God forgive all people in this world. People in the world made many mistakes, I'm sure. No one in this world did not make mistakes. But, God always forgive us. He forgives all of our sins. He did not discriminate people. He did not look from our wealth, our face, our ethnic, moreover, from our religion. He forgives us. He forgives people who did not believe in Him. He always takes care of us... Can we do like God do?

To forgive, we must not discriminate people first. Maybe in our life, we still choose our friends with a not important criteria. Such as, from their face, their religion, their weakness, their wealth, their family, etc. Don't to that silly things again from now. Maybe you can do that, but, have you ever think that person's feelings? Imagine that you're in their position... How’s your feeling?
If you did not discriminate people, it will be easier to forgive people...

Second, you must know and always remember that you made many mistakes too. Not only that, you must remember that God always forgives you. So, you must have awareness that you must do what the God's command, like to forgive. If you do that, maybe you'll think again to forgive your friends or not.

Third, if you feel so hard to forgive other people, try to pray. Ask for the God's help. Ask Him to give you strength to forgive. Calm down yourself and think again about what God have done in our life...

The last, think one more time about that event. Think and think again. Maybe, you made mistakes to them before. Introspect yourself. Try not to be emotional...

Don't forgive each other if that just a big lie. Your mouth forgives them, but, your heart not forgives them. It means you're hypocrite...

Do you ever think about the important of "sorry"?

To say sorry is important. We must say "sorry" when we made mistakes to other people. Maybe many of us don't want to say sorry because ashamed, or, we have an opinion, if we say sorry to our friends, they will laugh. Is that true? Maybe it occasionally happens around us, but it did not means that we must stop to say 'sorry'.

Don't worry, if you say sorry and admit your mistakes, God will be happy. He'll happy because you do something good in your life.

In say sorry, same like forgive, we must say it from our heart. Not only from our mouth, but we do that seriously and try hard not to make the same mistakes...

We must admit our mistakes. That's a good things I think. It's better than we must avoid our mistakes. Say sorry if it needs to...

Forgive and Sorry... Those are simple words, but it's hard to do. Easy to say, but, hard to do. Pray to God, ask for His help. He will hear your pray and of course, he will help you. One more, don’t just rely on God, but we must try. Don't rely with own strength, rely on God too. Because, He is the source of our strength.....

Try to forgive all people that made mistakes in your life, and say 'sorry' if we made mistakes to someone. Especially, say 'sorry' to God because we always hurt His heart...

Our Greatest Glory

Our Greatest Glory is Not in Never Falling
In Rising Every Time We Fall

I get that statement from one of my brothers. I really like that statement.

Maybe we always think that never fall is perfect, but, if we are rising every time, so we'll be better than the person that never falls...

Do you believe it?

For example:

I am a student now. Well, as you know, I have many exams in school. Not only exams, but, there are homework, project, quiz, and many else. From that, my teachers took my score. I've got bad score than my friends.

My friends are so smart. They almost have a perfect score in every activity in the school. Not only in the class subject, but, also in school competition. I always sad because I get a bad score and I won't active in the school competition. I won’t active in the school competition because I’m too lazy to do something like that. My parents always angry to me because my score.

I know I must raise my score. I study hard, and... I'm still getting a bad score! But, if it has a different from before, that's good. For example, my first English test got 50. When the second English test, I got 53. Maybe we said, "LOL, 50 and 53 is not different. Those two scores are still BAD!"

50 and 53 still have a different. Although it's just 3 points, but it's still have a different right?
If we can rise every time, we will get a good score right? Maybe, a perfect score! Just a little different is alright. We must study harder than before, and don't forget to pray.

To rise every time is not only in our study at school, but in our career too. Maybe sometimes we can't do the report well, we failed. Just accept it and we must study from that. That's an experience for us. So, when we do a report again, we must not to do our mistakes like before...

So, if we failed to do something, don't do our mistakes that we do before. We must change! But not change become bad but change become better than before...

...That's Our Greatest Glory...

Trust it and change your life...
