Dance Because You Are Loved

Dance although there’s no music

Dance although life betrays you

Dance although everything is a mess

Dance although some people laugh at your failures

Dance although your existence isn’t noticed

Dance although you’ve fallen down to the bottom of misery

 

Dance because you can create your own melody

Dance because you know being born is a gift

Dance because you have strength to face troubles

Dance because you can prove them wrong

Dance because you are the master of yourself

Dance because you have your inner power to rise

 

Dance like the movement of the clouds

And together with the sky make the harmony

Dance wherever you are

And tell the world that you will never give up

Dance because you are loved

 

 

I’ve missed many Weekly Photo Challenges. And today I decide to combine some challenges in one post. Why do I choose the pictures of clouds and sky? Because the image of clouds with sky background never fails to amaze me. When I’m sad, it’s heartwarming to look into the sky, it will always be a beauty at day and night. And through my poem, I want to share what’s on my mind, to wish us all the never ending spirit to keep on moving regardless what has happened. Yeah, what I mean by “dance” here is to move. Wish you all an amazing day. Happy Sunday, Muggles!

WPC – Beneath Your Feet

“You can have whatever you want if you believe in yourself and keep your feet firmly planted in the ground.” – A. J. McLean

When I saw the featured photo on Weekly Photo Challenge: Beneath Your Feet, I remember that I have some pictures of my feet. I thought it was only me who likes taking picture of feet 😀 Although you can post different photos- not only a picture of feet- to represent this theme, I’ll still use a picture of my feet to fulfill this challenge. I have no reason, but I just love to take pictures of my feet. May be because a picture of feet looks cute to me or my feet are just cute? Hahahaha 😛

Feeling comfortable.
Feeling comfortable.

Anyway, talking about feet, what do you think when you hear the word “feet”? I feel so grateful that I have feet. So, I can walk, run, jump, or kick you in the face when I get mad? No, I am kidding 😛

Okay, let’s have a serious talk.

Feet will remind me of the ground. The meaning of ground here may vary. It could be the grass or floor that you stand, earth where you live, or your hometown. Yeah, hometown. Wherever we are now, no matter how many places we’ve been, we’ll never forget our hometown, where we came from. The longing that warms your heart when you miss your hometown, a smile on your face when you remember the little things in your hometown. The warmth of your hometown will always be with you wherever you go.

So, what else? Feet on the ground could mean that we have to always be a low profile person, no matter how many things we’ve achieved. When you succeed, don’t forget those who were with you when you were down. Don’t forget the things you did that makes who you are now. Because who you are in the present is the result of what you did in the past. So, go reach your dreams, but don’t forget to always put your feet on the ground.

Since it’s a special day for my country, I want to make a wish through this post.

Happy 70th Independence Day

My Beloved Country, Indonesia!

Dirgahayu Indonesiaku! Semoga negara kita menjadi negara yang lebih baik. Dan orang-orangnya pun menjadi lebih baik. Pemimpin agar selalu amanah, dan rakyatnya juga harus berbuat sesuatu, jangan hanya pintar mengkritik. Mari berbenah, for the better Indonesia. Merdeka!

WPC Motion. Ever seen a dementor? Here you have.

Well, I don’t know much about photography, unlike this photographer. But I think I’m better than him since I’ve captured a picture of dementor, he hasn’t. 😎

This photograph I took when I was in car. I captured a picture of a tree using my phone. I shook my phone as soon as I captured it. Yeah, I’m that weird. 😛 So, doesn’t that tree look like a dementor? Hahahaha, please don’t throw me a bottle for this post. 😁

Expecto Patronum! Happy Monday, muggles!

What do you feel when you see a beautiful scenery? The green trees, the clear sky, and you can breathe in the fresh air. What a beautiful morning.

Nature is our home. Let’s together save it. Love the nature, love the life, love the earth. Happy Earth Day! 💜

Photography 101: Day 8 – Natural World & Leading Lines

Actually, I’m still not in mood today since United lost to Arsenal in the FA Cup on Monday, haha. But this is my picture for Day Eight’s theme: The Natural World. I captured a picture of a tree with its branches and not much leaves left as the foreground, with the sky and other trees as the background. Happy Wednesday, Muggles! 🙂
