Kecipratan

October 17, 2020

 


Saya sedang merenung. Mengapa mengeluh itu mudah sekali dilakukan. Iri terhadap pencapaian orang. Sirik melihat apa yang dimiliki orang lain.


Mengapa bersyukur itu berat sekali? Padahal tidak sedang berada di tengah kesusahan.


Katanya kalau kita bersyukur kepada Tuhan, maka Dia akan melipatgandakan nikmatnya.


Tapi, kenapa kita harus bersyukur? Apakah Dia butuh rasa syukur kita? 


Ya mungkin ga butuh sih. Sama saja seperti kita yang senang kalau ada yang bilang terima kasih setelah kita bantu. Padahal ya ga butuh. 


Eh. Kok nyama-nyamain Tuhan dengan manusia?


Jangan-jangan, senang kalau ada yang berterima kasih itu adalah sifat Tuhan yang "diwariskan" kepada manusia?


Wow, saya kecipratan sifat Tuhan.

Different Kind of Laziness

August 30, 2020

Messy Lego

 

I hate it when diligent people are being lazy. 


I am a lazy person. I am lazy yesterday, today, tomorrow, and (most probably) forever, so there is no way that I'll do anything that makes me need to do more than necessary. 


Take tidying up clothes, for instance. I wash my clothes, dry it, then just stack them by group, child one's clothes and pants, me and my husband's clothes and pants, and the baby's. No folding, no ironing, unless we need to go to a certain wedding, or wearing a very-delicate suits.

I don't like stacking them up in one big pile, why? Because then when I need something I'll need to search through the BIG pile, and I'm too lazy for that. But, when a diligent person is being lazy, they'll skip folding and ironing and just piling up the clothes! UGH! What a mess!


Or dishes. I don't like washing dishes. I keep procrastinating, until I have no more plates on the drying rack (yes, drying rack, I wash dishes, put them there, use them, then wash it again - no need to transfer it someplace else). Even though I do that, but you'll never see me putting a plate on top of a cup, or leaving an oily wok, or let the sink full of water, because some leftover is clogging the drain. Why? Because it'll make me have to work harder by the time I decided to wash them and I'm too lazy to spend too much time on stuff like that.

When a diligent people is being lazy, UGH. Even I, whose name is never associated with tidiness, can't stand looking at the messy sink.


See, when a lazy person created a mess, we created a methodological mess(?), you know... We created a beautiful mess. When a diligent person is being lazy, they created... A MESS. Period.

Merasa Bodoh? Ya Mungkin Memang Bodoh

Saya Bingung

June 20, 2020

Kejadian itu rasanya masih sangat jelas di ingatan. Saya berusia sekitar sembilan tahun. Waktu itu sedang perayaan Hari Kemerdekaan, papa saya sedang bercengkrama dengan satu orang tetangga, saya lupa bagaimana awalnya, tapi percakapan antara mereka sampai ke titik ini,

Papa: Kalau ga percaya saya rajin salat, lihat aja sarung saya. Coba kak, tolong ambilin sarung papa.
Saya: (Lari dari lapangan ke rumah, demi mengambil sarung. Lalu saya kasih sarungnya ke papa saya.)

Percakapan mereka ternyata masih berlanjut,

At night. When I’m alone and is free to do whatever I want.

After all this time?

Always.
