Catatan Akhir Tahun

31 Desember. Mendekati akhir tahun 2009.

Saya tidak tahu harus menulis apa. Namun, secara umum saya berpesan kepada diri saya sendiri (kalau Teman-Teman Pembaca mau mengikuti pesan saya juga tidak apa-apa) supaya:

  • lebih banyak introspeksi
  • lebih baik di masa yang akan datang
  • kurangi mengeluh (kalau dihilangkan sama sekali kayaknya ga mungkin, soalnya manusia itu memang tukang mengeluh)
  • lebih sabar
  • banyak bersyukur

Yup! Sabar dan syukur adalah kunci utamanya 🙂

Sebagai bonus, dalam catatan akhir tahun ini saya coba tuliskan lirik lagu Seasons yang dinyanyikan oleh Hamasaki Ayumi. Lagu ini pernah populer di Jepang karena –konon– liriknya yang mampu memberi motivasi bagi banyak orang supaya lebih menghargai hidup.

Romaji Lyrics

English Translation

Kotoshi mo hitotsu kisetsu ga megutte

Omoide wa mata tooku natta

Aimai datta yume to genjitsu no

Kyou kaisen wa koku natta

This year, another season has passed

Memories have become faded

The border between my vague dream and

reality has become blurred

Sore demo itsuka kimi ni hanashita

Yume ni uso wa hitotsu mo nakatta

La La-i

Even so, the dream I once told you of

had not a single lie in it

La La-i

Kyou ga totemo tanoshii to

Asu mo kitto tanoshikute

Sonna hibi ga tsuzuiteku

Sou omotte ita ano goro

Today was fun,

and tomorrow will surely be fun as well

“These days will continue forever,”

or so I thought at the time

Kurikaeshiteku mainichi ni sukoshi

Monotarinasa wo kanji nagara

Throughout the endless days I felt

as if something was missing

Fushizen na jidai no sei dayo to

Sakimawari shite akiramete ita

La La-i

I blamed it on these unnatural times,

and just gave up

La La-i

Kyou ga totemo kanashikute

Asu moshimo naite ite mo

Sonna hibi mo atta ne to

Waraeru hi ga kuru darou

Today was very sad,

and even if I cry tomorrow,

someday the time will come that I can laugh

and remember the time we had together

Ikudo meguri meguri yuku

Kagiri aru toki no naka ni

Bokura wa ima ikite ite

Soshite nani wo mitsukeru darou

How much time must pass by,

in this finite existence of ours?

We’ll live in the now,

and what will we find?
