It’s been a while since my last post. Phew…I guess time really flies in the mids of my hectic life of being an engineer. Haha, I just came back from Bangkok for a business trip yesterday night and was in office today. And now, here I am…..
Anyway, postingan hari ini saya ambil dari puisi yang ditulis oleh Denis Waitley, seorang filsuf di bidang kesuksesan dan prestasi yang maksimum masa kini.
Roots and Wings (A Child’s Bedtime Song)
If I had two wishes, I know what they would be
I’d wish for Roots to cling to, and Wings to set me free;
Roots of inner values, like rings within a tree, and Wings of independence to seek my destiny.
Roots to hold forever to keep me safe and strong,
To let me know you love me, when I’ve done something wrong;
To show me by example, and help me learn to choose,
To take those actions every day to win instead of lose.
Just be there when I need you, to tell me it’s all right,
To face my fear of falling when I test my wings in flight;
Don’t make my life too easy, it’s better if I try,
And fail and get back up myself, so I can learn to fly.
If I had two wishes, and two were all I had,
And they could just be granted, by my Mom and Dad;
I wouldn’t ask for money or any store-bought things,
The greatest gifts I’d ask for are simply Roots and Wings.
