“He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls without His knowledge”
Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up
As a person who loves apparel and co-own a clothing line, I often go to several Fabric Store for making some mass collection or custom order for special occasion. Lately I have a new kind of favorite fabric named PRADA LACE. Before I know this baby, I fond of French Lace sooo much. But sometimes I hate French lace because It’s fragile and somehow very girly and not bold. If I wanted to make it bold, I should add some kind of pearl or blinky things over the fabric. But this Prada Lace change my life (ahahahahahah). This is girly, feminim, but bold at the same time. Other great thing about this Lace is that Prada lace can make you look simpy stunning and elegant without tooo much blink blink (well I don’t like blink blink too much).
Here is how it look like. The lace is quite thick with a simple pattern. I love the bold color like fuschia, yellow, or tosca for it, but white, red, and black can make you look mysteriously beautiful and bold at the same time.
How can someone resist the fuschia one? You can make a simple dress, pencil skirt, or simple blouse using this lace. Just buy Max Mara Satin or Cavalli Satin and voila! You don’t need to much effort to be simply elegant 🙂
well I don’t mean to promote my label but well I actually want to promote it hahahha
just LINE me at miekeekaputri for custom order consultation (septia.mieke custom order cloth line)

I’ve never get bored watching this tv series. Never ever. Despite of the blood, the drama, the sweetest relationship from Mrs. Meredith Grey and Mr. McDreamy, the doctor lives, and off course the good looking cast, I always wait for the monolog. Usually monolog will be played at the beginning and at the end of the show. The monolog is great, powerful, and sometimes sad. I’ll show you several monolog from Grey’s anatomy. I got these from
1. The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day.
Still, sometimes, we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug, until we can’t anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves, what Benjamin Franklin meant:
That knowing, is better than wondering. That waking, is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst, most intractable mistake, beats the hell out of never trying.
2. Fresh starts. Thanks to the calendar, they happen every year. Just set your watch to January. Our reward for surviving the holiday season, is a new year. Bringing on the great tradition of New Year’s resolutions. Put your past behind you, and start over. It’s hard to resist the chance at a new beginning. A chance to put the problems of last year to bed.
Who gets to determine when the old ends, and the new begins? It’s not a day on a calendar, not a birthday, not a new year. It’s an event. Big or small. Something that changes us. Ideally, it gives us hope.
A new way of living and looking at the world. Letting go of old habits, old memories. What’s important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning.
But it’s also important to remember that amid all the crap are a few things really worth holding on to.
3. At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don’t keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy. That’s how we’re made. So you can waste your life drawing lines… or you can live your life crossing them.
But there are some lines… that are way too dangerous to cross. Here’s what I know: If you’re willing to take the chance, the view from the other side… is spectacular.
4. Gratitude. Appreciation. Giving thanks. No matter what words you use, it all means the same thing. Happy. We’re supposed to be happy. Grateful for friends, family, happy to just be alive… whether we like it or not.
Maybe we’re not supposed to be happy. Maybe gratitude… has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human.
Maybe we’re thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we’re thankful for the things we’ll never know.
At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing… is reason enough to celebrate.
5. Life is not a spectator sport. Win, lose or draw, the game is in progress, whether we want it to be, or not. So, go ahead, argue with the refs, change the rules… cheat a little, take a break… and tend to your wounds. But play. Play. Play hard. Play fast. Play loose and free. Play as if there’s no tomorrow.
Okay, so it’s not whether you win or lose… it’s how you play the game. Right?
6. We all think we’re going to be great. And we feel a little bit robbed when our expectations aren’t met. But, sometimes, our expectations sell us short. Sometimes, the expected simply pales in comparison to the unexpected.
You gotta wonder why we cling to our expectations. Because the expected is just what keeps us steady… standing… still. The expected is just the beginning.
The unexpected… is what changes our lives.
7. Some people believe that without history, our lives amount to nothing. At some point, we all have to choose. Do we fall back on what we know? Or, do we step forward, to something new? It’s hard not to be haunted by our past. Our history is what shapes us, what guides us.
Our history resurfaces. Time, after time, after time. So we have to remember. Sometimes, the most important history, is the history we’re making today.
8. Change… We don’t like it, we fear it. But we can’t stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow. Anybody who tells you it doesn’t, is lying. But here’s the truth: Sometimes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes, change is good. Sometimes, change is… everything.
9. You never know the biggest day of your life is the biggest day. Not until its happening. You don’t recognize the biggest day of your life. Not until you’re right in the middle of it. The day you commit to something or someone… The day you get your heart broken. The day you meet your soul mate. The day you realize there’s not enough time… because you want to live forever. Those are the biggest days. The perfect days.
10. We spend our whole lives worrying about the future, planning for the future, trying to predict the future. As if figuring it out will somehow cushion the blow. But the future is always changing. The future is the home of of our deepest fears, and our wildest hopes. But one thing is certain: When it finally reveals itself, the future is never the way we imagined it.
11. We’re all susceptible to it. The dread and anxiety of not knowing what’s coming. It’s pointless in the end. Because all the worrying, and all the making of plans for things that could, or could not happen, it only makes things worse. So walk your dog. Or take a nap. Just, whatever you do, stop worrying. Because the only cure for paranoia, is to be… here… just as you are.”
12. Just when we think we’ve figured things out, the universe throws us a curveball. So we have to improvise. We find happiness in unexpected places. We find our way back to the things that matter the most. The universe is funny that way. Sometimes it just has a way of making sure we wind up exactly where we belong.
13. Pain. You just have to ride it out. Hope it goes away on its own. Hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions. No easy answers. You just breathe deep and wait for it to subside.
Most of the time, pain can be managed. But sometimes, the pain gets you when you least expect it. Hits way below the belt and doesn’t let up.
Pain. You just have to fight through. Because the truth is, you can’t outrun it. And life always makes more.
14. People have scars in all sorts of unexpected places. Like secret road maps of their personal histories, diagrams of all of their old wounds. Most of our old wounds heal, leaving nothing behind but a scar. But some of them, don’t.
Some wounds, we carry with us everywhere… and though the cut is long gone, the pain still lingers.
What’s worse? New wounds, which are so horribly painful, or old wounds, which should have healed years ago, and never did? Maybe our old wounds teach us something. They remind us where we’ve been, and what we’ve overcome. They teach us lessons about what to avoid in the future. That’s what we like to think.
But that’s not the way it is, is it? Some things we just have to learn over and over and over… again.
15. The length of your recovery is determined by the extent of your injuries. And it’s not always successful. No matter how hard we work at it, some wounds might never fully heal. You might have to adjust to a whole new way of living. Things may have changed too radically to ever go back to what they were. It might not even recognize yourself. It’s like you haven’t recovered anything at all. You’re a whole new person with a whole new life.”
16. Doesn’t matter how tough we are. Trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, Trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that’s the point: All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward, it’s what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
17. Not all wounds are superficial. Most wounds run deeper than we can imagine. You can’t see them with the naked eye. And then, there are the wounds that take us by surprise.
The trick with any kind of wound or disease, is to dig down and find the real source of the injury. And once you’ve found it… try like hell to heal that sucker.
18. Too often, the thing you want most, is the one thing you can’t have. Desire leaves us heartbroken. It wears us out. Desire can wreck your life.
But as tough as wanting something can be… the people who suffer the most, are those who don’t know what they want.
19. Did you say it? I love you? I don’t ever want to live without you. You changed my life… did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work towards it. But every now and then, look around. Drink it in. ‘Cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow.
20. They say the bigger your investment, the bigger your return. But you have to be willing to take a chance. You have to understand, you might lose it all. But if you take that chance, if you invest wisely, the payoff just might surpise you.
21. When we follow our hearts, when we choose not to settle, it’s funny isn’t it? A weight lifts. The sun shines a little brighter and for a brief moment at least, we find a little peace.
22. It can be scary to find out you’ve been wrong about something but we can’t be afraid to change our minds, to accept that things are different, that they’ll never be the same, for better or for worse. We have to be willing to give up what we used to believe. The more we’re willing to accept what is and not what we thought, we’ll find ourselves exactly where we belong.
23. There’s an end to every storm. Once all the trees have been uprooted. Once all the houses have been ripped apart. The wind will hush. The clouds will part. The rain will stop. The sky will clear in an instant and only then, in those quiet moments after the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it.
24. Failure is inevitable, unavoidable but failure should never get the last word. You have to hold on to what you want. You have to not take no for an answer and take what’s coming to you. Never give in, never give up. Stand up. Stand up and take it.
25. Sometimes, the key to making progress is to recognize how to take that very first step. Then you start your journey. You hope for the best and you stick with it, day in and day out. Even if you’re tired, even if you want to walk away. You don’t. Because you are a pioneer. But nobody ever said it’d be easy.
Aaaaaa I love them even more. They always make every sad thing into optimism. They showed us that tragedy can be a process oh happiness. They also show us that everyone has issues and we live this long, to conquer and solve it.
Have a joyful life ahead 🙂
Well halooo! It’s quite a long time since the last time I posted something here. hihi. Beberapa alasan yang membuat saya males posting di blog adalah karena :
1. Saya punya tumblr : miekeputri.tumblr.com dan akhirnya saya keasyikan reblog reblog segala macem di sana
2. Saya dibeliin hostingan sama temen saya, dengan nama heymieke.com. basednya wordpress juga. Tapi emg dasar saya orgnya pengen ringkes dan cepet, saya agak males dengan segala prosedur dashboard di dalamnya hahah akhirnya terbengkelai juga *ditabokin deh ini, sama yang rela beliin hosting sebagai pelipur lara saat itu karena saya ngerengek butuh tempat nulis ngawur. *pdhl udah punya 2 blog
3. Waktu saya kerja di salah satu IT multinational compay (depannya I, belakangnya M, tengah2nya B) hahaha, gak sengaja temen temen saya menemukan blog ini, dan mereka ketawa habis habisan karena menurut mereka isinya bagus, filosofis, dan ok, tapi karena mereka tahu saya yang nulis, mereka ngerasa itu ga sesuai (di kantor emang saya bullyable dan riang selalu sih haha) Saya pun jadi males juga ah isi isi blog lagi.
Nah, saya ini tipe yang suka blog wandering. Ada beberapa blog yang selalu saya buka di kala senggang (baca : beberapa menit sebelum pulang kantor, istirahat kantor, dan drafting di pagi hari) yaitu :
alodita.com, thefreakyteppy.com, pupututami.com, brownplatform.com
Membaca blog blog itu membuat saya kangen nulis nulis gak penting di blog. Nah masalahnya, di blog ya mana? Yang mana sajalah yang penting mulai nulis.
Jadi ini comeback writing saya. Hopefully segera bisa nulis hal-hal (ga) penting, quites, atau review hal hal terkini. ahahaha
have a joyful life ahead 🙂
