2014 annual review: Most of my laughter since 2001 to 2014—even up to yesterday—were fake. Quite too long, isn't it...? Well, I have had some real Kodak moments—as well as true tears, which we need also because perhaps some people find it hard to cry lately.

But, again, most of the laughter were made up. So, help me, God, to get back to my original laughter. A laugh that reflects who I really am, just as I am. This year. 2015.

Berapa banyak indra yang Anda miliki? Jadikan selera humor yang besar menjadi indra keenam. Kita bisa saja terlalu serius menyikapi hidup ini, tapi tidak ada yang menandingi gelak tawa dalam mengangkat semangat dan memberi kita perspektif yang sehat terhadap hidup. So, hidup ketawa!

Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you

As you may already know, that's from William Arthur Ward.

Anyway, here's from another encourager:

"You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime." —Dale Carnegie

And more encouragers please, indeed.
