As I sit and look up to the sky, I collect my thoughts. The giant pine trees surround me, standing soaringly through the sky, reminding me of how people around me continue to grow to be a better person.
Too often, I questioned myself whether I grow to be a better person or not. As if it isn’t enough of that question most of the time, the time where I supposed to loose my mind didn’t make me feel ease. I really adore people around me. Some of them are having their passion burning, doing something specific, achieve goals, gain confidence and trophy as bonus. Meanwhile, some of them are spending their time with hobbies or anything worth to do, dropping their sweats, growing their eyebags, wishing that every second they spend worth for their future.
Me? I am included in the latter part.
Doing things endlessly without knowing my passion is, was actually exhausting. I am really jealous of how people know their passion and do it happily.
As I was reminded but those thoughts, “Ah, if i have to compare, I am only a tiny plant whereas the others are giant trees”
After a few minutes, somehow I regain my conciousness in mind, telling something that hits me
There’s no point to compare ourselves with the others. It only brings you down and makes depression closer to you. Compare yourself today with yourself yesterday, or yourself a few months ago.
And that’s it. I talked to my friend as I continue to wander, moving from that sitting place to enjoy the view and life. I looked to the sky once again, smiling ear to ear and whispering, “Thank you”.
I enjoyed view of Pines on Imogiri, Bantul, Yogyakarta. The story I write in this post has some of my real thoughts, but at that time I sat, the thing that came to my mind is how to not be an arrogant person because I am still not, and never be good enough to be arrogant, while people around me who is good enough do not even have time to be arrogant. I changed it a bit because the story I wrote reflecting my current thoughts and portraying the photo best other than my thoughts that time.
Here is another photo I took.
Not my best photo *sigh*. I wish I can visit Yogyakarta again, some time in the future.
