Be Proud of Yourself

I start this post by saying that I'm feeling proud. My blog this day is little nostalgic. Well, most of the time I talked about life with my husband, all of his statements are actually makes me think that I'm so so lucky. And those are these kinds of his statements : "you're the trully passionate people I've ever known", "since you were a teenager you know what you really want to do with your life", "you're lucky to have parents as your best support system that always supporting and believing in you".

He's admiring me ? LOL. I think there's nothing wrong with admiring someone's life. Everybody has a dream. But all I have to do is simple, love myself and all I have in this life. And the most important thing I have to do to love myself is learning how to be proud and satisfied with myself to achiving all the dreams I have.

I loved writing stories. I know I enjoy writing since teenage years. My heart was in it. I remember in the first year of junior high school, I wrote 5 page of bucket list and one of them I would love to become a Journalist. I often watch the news channel and I was thinking at that time, being a Journalist is awesome. I get to learn about alot of new thing everyday, I get to meet famous people, and I get money while traveling, hahahaaaaa :)))

When I was high school student, I worked on the school "newspaper", we usually called it Mading. Wrote some articles and poems, and visited press company with my team for several times. And then, those activities stopped by the system because I should entering the college student's life in other city.

But how lucky I'm, in the 3rd year of school, I'm started interning at the local newspaper. I got a chance to attended some journalism class. I became so busy just within my first month. My work has mostly been on editing side and sometimes worked over the time. Doing interviews in person or by phone than writing it before the deadline. Then send it to the editor and it shall be available to public. Morning become night and night become morning, hahaaa. I swear, I was tired all the time. But I was so excited and feel I'm the happiest people on earth.

Then I got married on the 3rd year of my work. After thinking for a long time, I decided to quit my job for being a housewife. He has appreciated and supported my decision. I want to loving and serving him well by staying at home. Be here when my husband came home, make coffee and serve his favorite food. But the most important reason I'm being housewife because Allah brought my husband into my life and I know he's the best husband for me.

You know he often says, this home wouldn't neat and clean if I weren't around, and I'm good at keeping the home clean, wkwk. It's the only thing I've ever wanted to be. I couldn't imagine being anything else except being a mom one day :")

Like I said, I'm so so lucky. The path was never closed to me. Allah is The Most Merciful. I started my personal website on the 1st year of our marriage for my passion on writing. I'm enthuses with my blog. I'm happy being a wife, a housekeeper, an accountant, a support system, a writer, and taking care of my dad-in-law at the same time. I always feel grateful.

Do I think it's wrong for a woman to work ? Absolutely not. But I don't think there's nothing wrong with being a housewife. I believe I'll get better quality of life when I'm true to myself. And I stand up for what I believe :)
