Ten Reasons Why I love My Husband (A Birthday Post)


It's my husband's birthday so I made this book containing the ten reasons why I love him. There are more than ten of course but this list is a good start to elucidate why I love him so much.

Thank you so much Alex for helping me get this wallet.

This year's presents for Beb.


Ten is a good start of the countless reasons why I fall in love with you over and over again.

I love you just because YOU are YOU but these reasons make me love you more.
With or without occasion, you always make sure to get something for me. You put my happiness over and above anything else.



I am not an easy person to deal with when I am sick but you never failed to amaze me how much you care for me in everything you do.

I lost count of the times you helped someone at the store because they didn't have enough money to pay for their stuff, or the time you stopped during winter to buy food for a homeless man, or the times we stopped at the side of the road to help someone whose car broke down. 



I will be lost without you, Beb.

Without question, you are there by my side, in good times and bad times.

I don't need to put on a ton of make-up because I can be myself when I am with you.

I love how we laugh about EVERYTHING.

Organize and Declutter (Day 6 of Thirty-Day Challenge for a More Meaningful Life)



Day 6. Organize and Declutter. Let go of something in your closet.
I read somewhere that attachment to material things create a void inside you. Letting go of a thing or two from your closet is the start of escaping the prison of materialism.
 
Good order is the foundation of all things. –Edmund Burke-
A visit to my walk-in closet and dressers made me realized that I have tons of clothes that I don’t wear anymore at all. As I organized, I made a decision of which clothes to let go. After hours of folding and arranging, twelve drawers, two ottoman storage, and a walk-in closet are more orderly. Simple action that made me feel more productive and efficient.
Reflection: Good order is the foundation of all things. –Edmund Burke-

Start your Day with a Prayer (Day 5 of Thirty-Day Challenge for a More Meaningful Life)


The power of prayer is undeniable.
In the busy world we live in, a meaningful life is as elusive as ever. Imagining a life which has vitality, substance and contentment is getting harder because of the overwhelming materialism that surround us. Sometimes, a gentle reminder to start your day with a prayer is all that you need to start a meaningful day.
 
I lost count of the times God made a difference in our life because of prayers.
Day 5. Start your Day with a Prayer
When I was teaching in Indonesia, I used to start my day reading a Bible with my husband who was here in the United States. Prayer continuously plays a vital role in our relationship but life could be overwhelming sometimes that we only get to do it before going to sleep or before eating dinner.

A prayer before starting that day is a humble way of asking God to show me which way He wants me to go. It is also a beautiful reminder that I am as fallible as ever and only God can complete me.  If and when I fall on this day, I know that the prayer I uttered for the day is enough to strengthen my resolve to stand and live the day as a child of God.

“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayers is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.”

Be One with Nature (Day 4 of Thirty- Day Challenge for a More Meaningful Life)


Being one with nature is beneficial both on your body and mind.
A day in a life could just come and go and doing this challenge is starting to have a huge impact on my perspectives in life. Just on the fourth day and I am already realizing that there are effectual ways to break the monotony of life.
Day 4. Be One with Nature
Today, I challenged myself to be one with nature. Thankfully, we are currently on vacation so it is a lot easier to put in reality. Our day started early with a visit to the Sleeping Bear Dunes Scenic Drive. It has about 12 stop over that allowed us to bask on different views. Being one with nature allowed me to smell the trees and reminded me of my mortality.
 
One of the stop-over at the Scenic Drive.
We went hiking, stopped to save a turtle along the road, savoured the beauty of Lake Michigan, and walked in the cleanest water I have ever seen. I also experienced just laying down on the sand while enjoying the amazing view of Lake Michigan at Sleeping Bear Dunes Pyramid Point. I was sore all over from hiking and endless walking but it was so much fun.
A plethora of studies show that being in nature allows us to release anger, anxiety and stress. It also offers the most positive boost to provide healing for both body and mind.
Hans Christian Andersen said it perfectly, “Just living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”

Seize the Day (Day 3 of Thirty-Day Challenge for a More Meaningful Life)



It’s the third day of my thirty-day challenge for a more meaningful life. This day couldn’t be more perfect for what’s on my list- carpe diem.

The expression carpe diem was first uttered by Horace and rooted back from the oldest philosophical motto of Western history. The message resonates different meaning from various perspectives but mostly it signifies a day free from worries and simply savoring the beauty of the day.
At first we thought this is a cherry tree but another person said it isn't.
I feel so blessed to have this perfect opportunity to put this list in reality. Worrying does not change a thing and the pace of life is accelerating whatever we do. So, off we went on our travel for a short vacation. No rush, no worries. We even took the time to check on some cool trees and views along the way. The usual stress that travels bring was noticeably absent. And just like that, we were in a paradise.

We got a matching shirts! Made the day more special.
The mere sight and sound of the rushing falling water was heaven. The sound was loud but it gives you this very peaceful and calm feeling.
This is probably the most peaceful town I have ever been.

The Falling Waters Lodge. (I will have a full article about this.)
Truly, we could learn from Marcus Aurelius, “When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love…”
