Words that inspire


How sometimes I still think naively 
that I only will see, hear, feel, meet
even read and smell,
something or someone 
that I really need to see, hear, or feel
or meet, even read and smell 
at that moment.

So if I don't need to see something
there will be something else crossing my eyes.
But if there is something I need to read
even if I don't know why or where,
even when I am just about to close my tired
eyes and checking my tweet-land 
for 5' before signing off to other land,
I came across these beautiful words.
From Donna Downey's tweet.

Oh,
The words that inspire
The words that heal

May you find serenity and tranquility
in a world you may not always understand.

May the pain you have known
and the conflict you have experienced
give you the strength to walk through life
facing each new situation with courage & optimism.

Always know that there are those
whose love and understanding
will always be there
even when you feel most alone.

May a kind word,
a reassuring touch,
and a warm smile,
be yours every day of your life.
and may you give these gifts
as well as receive them.

May the teachings of those you admire
become part of you,
so that you may call upon them.

Remember, 
those whose lives you've touched
and who have touched yours,
are always a part of you,
even if the encounters
were less than you would have wished.
It is the content of the encounter
that is more important than its form.

May you not become too concerned
with material matters,
but instead place immeasurable value
on the goodness in your heart.
Find time in each day to see beauty & love
in the world around you.

Realize that what you feel you lack in one regard
you may be more than compensated
for in another.
What you fell you lack in the present,
may become one of your strength in the future.
May you see your future as one
filled with promise and possibilities.
Learn to view everything 
as a worthwhile experience.

May you find enough inner strength
to determine your own worth by yourself,
and not be dependent
on another's judgment of your accomplishments

May you always feel loved.

(Sandra Sturtz)


As always,
I believe the words will find me
when I need them the most.

How naive.
I know.

About me

  • I am a woman who fell in love with papers and words long enough before with boys. Therefore, scrapbooking, writing, reading, and art journaling are just things that complete me. I live happily in Bandung, Indonesia, with my husband, Audy Kusnadjaja, and 2 adorable kids adore me. Isn't life sweet?
