Uuummm…

I feel uneasy…
Like something is flowing inside me…
I don’t know exactly…
Difficult to explain…

Hmm, yeah, whenever I saw a television program here…
I do feel envy…
You know, even I never turned on NHK channel 2
Well, I am telling you, it’s a kids channel from NHK. a japanese televition station…
Oooh, you don’t have any idea how creative the programs are…
My brian’s channel, and I’m not dare enough to watch it alone..
Haha, I’m so regretful, why I didn’t bring my Brian here during my 3 month-staying…

Well, even in the other channel now,
They broadcasted about one Japanese astronout (one among three) who just came back from outer space station,
They told us who he is, his dream, his previous school… Even the TV people visited his elementary school to talk with the present students and see….. how happy and proud they are….

Even the TV people visited his elementary school to talk with the present students and see….. how happy and proud they are….

Then in another program, about 2 Nobel awardees from japan…
And they told us in simple explanation what those 2 scientists did to be selected as Nobel awardee..

Omg…. i do envy….
What can I see from my tv channel at home?

Moreover, i questioned myself what can I do?
I love my son, I love Indonesian kids, and think what I can share, started from my son?

Well, it’s really not easy,
I can change nobody
Even when I wanna share about my Marvella, its also not easy…
but I really feel uneasy now, with this big gap between what I face here in Japan and in my home country.

But, will I be a complainer and feel frustrated of the situation beyond my control?

Well, I decide to keep my uneasiness
Coz it makes me move on and motivated to do something though I dont know how..

And it just remind me to the nice quote by Steven Jobs,
Stay hungry
Stay foolish

Not to occupy others
But being hungry n foolish of knowledge,
Of every goodness, of every good intention,
That’s Vidya which my daughter has already taught me…
Yaa, this is one from millions that are Marvella, my angel daughter taught me…
Keep being marvelous, keep being inspired, keep being motivated..

To where I wanna go?

Being in japan, a strong feeling of mine is not about a heavenly place or wonderful moment for escaping, but all is about learning to live my own.
It’s a bit complicated, but let me share, dear..

One of my favorites tv program in japan is about japanese person who chose n dedicated herself (usually woman), to serve community, far, far away from japan.
Usually they are living in an extremely remote area for some reasons. Yeah, it can be because of love, but often because of their personal dedication.

Tonight, once again i saw such a program in channel 5. A japanese woman lives in Caramaca village.
You know where it is? Hehe, even i never know where Caramaca is. Immediately i checked, and I found it is in Mozambique area. Well, still, I dont know where it is exactly, lol… Haha, okay, let’s check the link….
But, from what I saw, I think Caramaca is truly a remote area, deep inside a forest, in a hill, and the people living there is still in a traditional way.

Well, can you imagine how people can live now without internet connection, gadget, technology….? Ooooh please don’t mention them if you wanna see what kind of place Caramaca village is.
And how come, the Japanese woman named Mayumi lives there?
Even, the reporter felt soooo hard to find the place and her there…
And for sure, more surprising things are when the reporter asked her, for what she is staying there…
Well, dare to guess what the answer?

Waiiiittt…..

Before guessing, please imagine, Caramaca’s people still don’t wear clothes as we wear…
Yaaa, they are still wearing leaves to cover parts of body, almost naked. Well, okay, people in certain area do that…

Alright, come back to the answer…
What do you think Mayumi did there?
Really, you will not have any idea when she said, she is there to teach people to cultivate crops, taro, cassava, also chicken and pigs… yaa, teaching and  developing agriculture in real meaning.
Omg… what a crazy-wonderful answer…

And noticing her smile, i can feel… she is really happy to do that, no burdened face, no stressful frown…
What i can see is free feeling, genuine heart and happiness shine in her face.
How come?
Well… i cant really understand what the reporter and mayumi talked about, just because of my language limit.
However, dear, i can feel her spirit…
Move outside from herself and dedicate her own life for others.
Hmmm, this is just one example, but i believe, there are sooooo many other stories that are unrecorded, unknown and keep unrevealed…
Well, but i also believe they did, not for being written in a book, or broadcasted somewhere…
It’s really because of their personal choice.

Well…
Recently, there were snow and wind storms in north and west of Japan, it’s very severe…
But, you know dear…what I always learn here is, how to live, survive and choose to be happy, to accept, whatever the hard moments are,
Coz every problem is one step to make us stronger…
And how we can always be thankful for every second we have in our life, that everything has its own blessing, and then re-courage ourselves to move outside ours, to share and do something for others. Well, i keep in my mind, my life is not my own, and not only for my own.

My life is a blessing, as well as a way of blessing for others….
So, it’s nice saying that my time in japan is my contemplative moment with myself, to ask deep inside me, what next…as a thankfulness to what I received so far…
And how i should love more my life, my surrounding, nature, universe…
And to make my dreams come true, to be useful for others, though in a very small way…

Aaaaahhh, I remember all my beloved students then…

Thanks dear, keep being inspired and keep inspiring for others, for the goodness, for the rightness, for the beauty of the life… for all in all….

*Love journey of life,
