BELAJAR DARI DIRI SENDIRI

Dalam rangka terus mengasah diri menjadi pribadi yang lebih baik, terkadang kita belajar dari lingkungan sekitar, melihat perilaku dan kejadian orang lain bahkan menyimak pengalaman menakjubkan mereka. Namun, ternyata kita juga bisa belajar dari diri sendiri. Secara tidak sengaja, saya menemukan artikel lama saya yang dipublikasi via media sosial Facebook pada tanggal 7 Februari 2009. Itu artinya saya baru saja memasuki semester kedua pada tahun pertama Master saya di Montpellier, Prancis. Melihat tulisan ini, saya tersenyum simpul. Usia saya saat itu masih dibawah kepala tiga dan memang masih udik tentang menulis. Akan tetapi, saya mengakui bahwa terkadang hal-hal yang kita sukai atau kita lakukan menentukan jati diri kita. Manusia memang kompleks. Seseorang bisa menyukai dan tidak menyukai banyak hal, yang bahkan tidak kita duga sama sekali di usia yang muda ataupun tidak muda lagi.

Berikut adalah tulisan saya yang berjudul “25 Random Thing About Me”.

Normally, I don’t do such thing, but as I thought that one friend have asked me to do this so I do what I can. These are 25 random things about me.

1. I care most my families and my friends.
2. I am a book person. I have about 543 books. Even I don’t know if I still have all of it.
3. I wish that people don’t have to sleep so that they could solve a lot of problems in this world.
4. I am a loyal friend. I hate being stabbed from behind. When do, I will definitely be furious.
5. I feel lonely sometimes in the middle of crowd.
6. I like PC games, billiard and hanging around in the café for hours with friends.
7. I love height. It makes me feel that I can conquer anything.
8. I love music. I am a big fan of Bob Marley.
9. I definitely play guitar, Ukulele and kind of singing person.
10. I do not like dancing. It makes me look like a fool.
11. I love molecular science. I feel like the smallest part is the answer of bigger things.
12. I am a persistent man. I will always try to finish what I have started.

Melihat tulisan diatas, jelas saya telah melewati beberapa fase. Poin ke-24 sudah terewati. Sementara, poin ke-25 sebentar lagi usai. Uniknya, poin ke-3 merupakan hal yang sukar saya rubah selama 10 tahun terakhir. Yang pasti mengenang itu indah. Jangan lupakan siapa diri sendiri.

Be yourself.
