Desiderata


    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.

    As far as possible without surrender
    be on good terms with all persons.

    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even the dull and the ignorant;
    they too have their story. 

    Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
    they are vexations to the spirit.

    If you compare yourself with others,
    you may become vain and bitter;
    for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
     

    Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
    it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

    Exercise caution in your business affairs;
    for the world is full of trickery.

    But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
    many persons strive for high ideals;
    and everywhere life is full of heroism. 


    Be yourself.

    Especially, do not feign affection.

    Neither be cynical about love;
    for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
    it is as perennial as the grass. 


    Take kindly the counsel of the years,
    gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

    Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

    But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.

    Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

    Beyond a wholesome discipline,
    be gentle with yourself.
     

    You are a child of the universe,
    no less than the trees and the stars;
    you have a right to be here.

    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
     

    Therefore be at peace with God,
    whatever you conceive Him to be,
    and whatever your labors and aspirations,
    in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
     

    With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
    it is still a beautiful world.

    Be cheerful.

    Strive to be happy.

Working With Passion.

Hi there, It's been a long time since you saw my post. Sorry for that.. Not really. Haha.. Well,it's just I was quite occupied with work. Yeah.. Work ! (and side business)

I don't know if I say this too soon or not. But I felt that I finally found the place I can work with passion. The work is still in the line of my career, nothing much had change in that, only the environment that is different. Everything seems to be more exciting and challenging at the same time. After a few days working in this company I was like, "WOW ! This is the kind of place I've been looking for, for quite a long time. I can learn a lot here."

The work mates also very supporting and caring especially my supervisor. He is very smart and kind, quite fun and also very sincere. I respect him for that. On my first day it doesn't felt awkward a bit. Everything just went perfectly natural and everyday I work here, I felt that time pass very fast and 24 hours doesn't seems enough. Every morning I wake up with excitement to go to work even though it took me 45 minutes to 1 hours riding to go to the office from my place. I usually hated commuting or riding that long and far.

Well.. I hope that this new place can bring me to a higher place and a better tomorrow. This time I will stay for quite a long time, maybe..


P.S. DO what you love and LOVE what you do. If you can't ? It wasn't meant for you, keep looking.
