What is the toughest part of my personal life up to now?


To forgive my imperfect life from the bottom of my heart.

You know what, at the end 2013 I started to not envy to another "success" life. For many years, I was exhausted to compare my life to another one. It was because of my background.

Since I was teenager, I always compete to achieve something. People around me hung high-expectation in order to me became best person in their version. Foolishly, I tried to please them!

Yes, I was popular student in the school....
I was also national-teenage writer....
Last but not least, I was achieved student from elementary school until senior high school....

I have my own great parents who supported me as a spoilt child. Absolutely, as latest kid in my family, I never fought dramatically to achieve what I wanted in daily life. What a perfect life!

But, for me... the real life began when I was college student. Since that year, as if failure is my daily "meal". Once I was failed, I might be mad at my self. My heart always scream:

"How come Herry Fahrur Rizal could be failed...?!"

To be honest, failure was big NO in my life! Come on, for many years I always got what I want even though effortlestly! Where was my lucky... my miracle... my "angel" which made my dream comes true...?!

More than ten years flew. I grew up with many various experiences in overcoming the failure. Suddenly, I was intimate with failure. I treated a failure as a best friend. It turned into my own vitamin which made me keep hustling and grinding up to now....

I was 31 years old in 2013.

I started to forgive my imperfect life. I stopped to blame another people. I leave to not compare my life to another. I believed in my own destiny. I trusted that Allah SWT taught me enormous life lesson. I am living based on my "Time Zone"....

So guys… my (real) life just began!

I don't care anymore when un-emphaty people asked several un-important question:

"Kok belum nikah juga padahal udah kepala tiga...?"
"Kapan sih suksesnya, kok perasaan gitu-gitu aja kerjaannya...?"
"Kapan dong bisa gendong anak kamu...?"

My heart whispered:
"Never again compare your first chapter with another tenth chapter!"
