Show more love. Stop judging everybody you meet or know already. Stop the drama surrounding something you know it's not that important. Start creating positivity, even if you don't see it. If we don't erase the negativity together then how the hell are we supposed to get along with each other? We all want to belong, that's a fact. So let's make it easier for everyone. Because we are all important. We all have values within ourselves. And we all want to feel loved. Let's unite and start giving everything we want to be given. And have no doubt, that like this, we can really be the generation that changes the world for good.

[TW] Setiap orang, memiliki porsinya masing-masing untuk menunjukkan rasa pedulinya. Mereka yang berdiri dalam perahu yang sama, jelas memahami segala apa yang kita rasakan. Terlihat begitu paham dan betah mendengarkan, karena bisa jadi mereka pun berjuang dengan alasan yang sama. Bertahan dari musuh yang sama: kucing-kucing hitam yang bahagia dalam kepala. Dan mereka yang berdiri di pelabuhan, tak akan mengerti tentang betapa kacaunya kita. Namun, tanpa kita sadari, merekalah yang menggenggam erat tali perahu agar kita tak hanyut terlampau jauh. Mereka, yang dengan caranya sendiri, menunjukkan peduli untuk merapikan segala kacau. Mereka yang paham, jelas akan meminta kita bercerita pelan-pelan. Menjadi teman dan pendengar baik, mencoba membantumu melewati pikiran-pikiran gilamu. Membuatmu menghadapi kenyataan yang ada. Mereka yang tak paham, belum tentu teman yang buruk. Terkadang, merekalah yang membuat kita merasa baik-baik saja. Betah melenturkan pembicaraan agar kita bisa fokus pada hal-hal yang bikin bahagia. Mereka peduli, dengan cara yang berbeda. Entah bagaimana dan dari mana kamu memandang, percayalah: dua perbedaan ini bisa bikin kamu nyaman dengan caranya masing-masing. ··· Tapi, apa benar mereka peduli? Bukannya kasihan? Well, Aku pribadi paham rasanya diabaikan. Berjuang sendiri melawan kucing-kucing yang makin liar kala malam menyapa, saat seharusnya aku dijelang lelap. Aku tahu bagaimana takutnya aku pada rasa diabaikan, merasa sendiri dan tak punya teman untuk mendengar kecuali cermin-cermin kecil yang sudah pecah berserakan. Aku sih, sungguh peduli agar-sebisa mungkin-mereka yang di sekitarku dan sedang kacau: tak merasa sendiri apalagi diabaikan. ··· Tapi, apa benar mereka peduli (padaku)? Bukan sekadar kasihan? Mereka kan, bukan aku. ··· Mon maap, gak perlu dikasihani.

My reading list for the next week or so. Reading is my next favorite thing to running; if I’m not doing one, it’s the other. #vsco #vscocam #vscogram #reading #bookstagram #books #literature #runner #trailrunner

Featured is our February #booksekection for our 2018 #readinglist. 📖 Fifty-Five, Unemployed and Faking Normal ~ Elizabeth White. 📖 You’re in your 50s or 60s and have saved nothing or not nearly enough to retire. You don’t want to be blamed or shamed about it. What you want to know is whether there’s anything you can do now to intercept the precarious financial path you’re on. The author takes a serious look at aging and ageism within our culture, by using herself and her history. She discusses issues and poses questions to help navigate these tough issues and concerns of one of the largest cultural groups in our country today -- those of us becoming senior citizens and living well. This is not only a topic for those near retirement or planning for retirement, but also for our younger GOGs with parents who are now in retirement or approaching it. 📖 #gogbookclub #bookclub #book #bookclubs #bookclubfinstagram #bookstagram #booklove #bookworm #booknerd #bookporn #booklover #read #reading #reader #bibliophile #womenwriters #womenauthors #blackliterature #literature #bookclub #gogbookclub #blackgirlsread #blackauthors #blackwriters

CRAZY RICH ASIANS REVIEW | An interesting and informative satire, Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians engrosses the reader with detailed descriptions of haute couture and Asian cuisine. However, like the original Star Wars trilogy, Crazy Rich Asians is the best during the middle. Dipped in decadence and melodrama, it is impossible to stop turning the pages for a solid proportion of the book. However, the beginning and end do not have the same effect on the reader. The first few pages are muddled, jumping from character to character in the large Young-T’Sien-Shang clan. (Thankfully, Kwan provides a ‘simplified’ family tree.) The final part of the book suffers from outrageous plot twists that stray too far from the main plot. Check out Crazy Rich Asians if you want to crave an easy, extravagant beach read. | #crazyrichasians #kevinkwan #booksandbrie #book #books #booksarelife #bookcommunity #bookpassion #bookrecommendation #bookreview #greatreads #bookquotes #bookobsessed #bookworms #bookstagram #readmorebooks #alwaysreading #bookphoto #booksofinsta #bookart #booksbooksbooks #bookcollection #bookoftheday #paperbacks #literature #literaturelover #comtemporarybooks #classicliterature
