every family has its story

dear titan and la luna,
now let me tell you about family.

well, a family is people you see and know for the first time.
those people around who watch you grow.
they see you get bigger, get taller, but not necessarily they make you stronger.
you see them, you know them, but your understanding toward them doesn't come instantly, or easily.
sometimes it takes forever to understand the character of each member of your family.
those are the people you see most often, but sometimes, not the one you seek for the first time.
either when you are in good or bad.

there are times when you feel you hate your family.
you hate your mom, your dad, your sister or brother,
but then you will realise that a family, just like any other things in the world,  can not always be nice.
and when that day come, just remember that there is no perfect family.
there is always the nicest, the worst, the most generous, the most stingy, those who make you feel happy the most or many times, those who makes you cry and pissed off the whole day.
but your family, is your family.
no matter what.
by then I hope you will realise that you will just have to accept your family.
the way they are.

and you, my children, you are a pair of angels god gave me.
because god knows having each other will make your life easier as brother and sister.
because god wants you to be stronger by having each other.
because god wants you to be always in his path, so god gave one as a reminder to the other.

and I want nothing in this world except you grow healthy and happy and to be grateful for having each other and taking care of each other.
promise me that,
one day.

Life. Just like what I wanted.

Sounds so snobbish ya, saying life is just like what I wanted. But then I realized, semua itu karena emang aku enggak pengen apa-apa. Sekarang juga (ternyata) masih begitu. Dulu emang I treat my life like a blue print. Things to do piling up my list and my aims were to accomplish them. Alhamdulillah, semua tercapai. Tapi kemudian seperti ada titik tolak dalam hidup yang bikin  berhenti ingin terlalu banyak dari hidup. Entah karena merasa udah cukup banyak pencapaian pribadi baik yang bagus atau yang buruk, entah karena pernah kecewa berat sama yang namanya manusia atau karena alasan klise yang digadang-gadang semua manusia: anak.

Sekarang ini, lebih banyak menyambut apa yang datang ke dalam hidup. Termasuk, kembali ke agency lagi. Having thought that I am not some kind of 'Man in a mission' kind of person. I am just an 'I will do my best' of what comes in front of me kind of person.

Gini ceritanya.

Tiga belas bulan yang lalu, saya memutuskan untuk kembali bekerja setel…

love is love. marriage is another thing.

of all the things I ever wondered, ... I think I never wonder whom my kids will be married to. or to picture myself holding grand babies. not just a not yet, I think it is simply too hard to bear and too absurd to think of. but then I promise myself. I promise I will not ever push titan and luna to get married or even if they are married; I will not ask them when to have kids.

many times I wondered that marriage is overrated. and the only reason to get married is not love, but to realise life is too hard to bear when you are all alone. because, however, marriage is a conditional love. hubby once said, marriage is not all fancy and glitter. the lowest it can get is, to keep functioning and it will survive. how both parties can be functional one to another, is another story.

to ariawan, a guy of mine,
the one who always wake me up from my princessy dreams. love you.



Let's cut the crap from the question of Which Mom Are You?

A few years back, social media was being fussy about working mom versus stay at home home. What a nonsense brag! Since I went through both and also had a chance of being a working-from-home mom, it is even more ridiculous for me. Only stupid have a time discussing it and to elaborate on their social media status. Whoever we are, what kind of mom we are, what matters most is how we can make our life productive and progressing. Every single day.

Different mom has different ways of being productive. Some goes to work. Some clean up and cook for the family. Some works at home by selling stuffs online or being a freelancer. Productive means to produce something. Be it money, the foods, you name them all. But the question is, is productive enough? How about having a progressing life? Not as the wife of Mr. Blabla or as the mom of kid Zubidudamdam. But us, as a person. Me, as Wury; a 38 years old woman and how far I have made progress in  my life.

BUT. Let alone of being progressive, ... ar…
