Oleh: Emmy Liana Dewi

Saya sungguh beruntung pernah mengajar di Caltex American School–Duri (CAS–D), Riau selama 12 tahun. Saya adalah satu-satunya guru yang berkewarganegaraan Indonesia di di CAS-D yang terletak di negara Indonesia, sedangkan staff pengajar lainnya adalah guru yang ‘diimpor’ dari Kanada dan Amerika yang telah direkrut di Amerika dan ada ada satu – dua istri karyawan warga negara asing yang bekerja di perusahaan minyak Caltex yang direkrut secara lokal. Murid-murid saya semuanya adalah anak-anak dari karyawan asing yang sedang bertugas di Caltex di Duri.

Ketika saya mengajar di CAS-D, saya lebih banyak belajarnya daripada mengajarnya. Saya banyak menimba ilmu dari rekan kerja, yaitu guru-guru dari kelas preschool sampai guru kelas 8 yang menggunakan kurikulum persis di Amerika.

Kita tidak bisa serta merta mensugesti agar api emosi itu padam. Tidak bisa.

Nah, mengapa harus melalui “forgiveness”? Mengapa bukan dengan cara lain?

Ada sangat banyak teknik terapi. Namun dari sekian banyak teknik, Forgiveness Therapy, adalah salah satu yang paling dahsyat efeknya. Terapi yang dilakukan tanpa diakhiri dengan memaafkan adalah terapi yang tidak tuntas.

Mengapa bisa tidak tuntas?

Secangkir Teh dan Makna Hidup Cerita Motivasi dan Inspirasi Nomor 1

Baru-baru ini saya mendengar sebuah kisah dari seorang professor yang luar biasa. Beliau menceritakan sebuah kisah tentang gurunya sendiri. Pernah suatu hari datang seorang pemuda yang menanyakan tentang makna hidup. Guru tersebut tidak langsung menjawab pertanyaan pemuda tadi, tapi kemudian menyuguhkan teh yang diisi di dalam beberapa cangkir yang berbagai rupa. Ada cangkir yang terbuat dari emas, ada yang dari tanah liat, ada berbentuk sangat bagus, ada yang warnanya kusam. Yang jelas terhidanglah beberapa cangkir teh yang berbeda-beda jenis cangkirnya.

Walaupun cangkirnya berbeda-beda, tapi setiap cangkir tersebut diisi teh yang sama. Kemudian dipersilahkan-lah pemuda tadi untuk memilih secangkir teh dari salah satu cangkir yang dihidangkan kepadanya. Pemuda tadi kemudian memilih cangkir yang sangat bagus dan kemudian meminum teh dari cangkir tersebut.

Guru tersebut pun berkata, “Hanya untuk teh saja, setiap orang itu memilih untuk meminumnya dari cangkir yang terbaik. Maka bagaimanakah dengan hidupmu yang sangat berharga ini? Pilihlah jalan yang penuh makna untuk hidupmu yang berharga”.

SUAREZ Makes a Perfect Start for The Reds

Luis Suarez, an instant hero in the Reds' 2-0 victory against Stoke City
Luis Suarez enjoyed a dream debut for Liverpool as he stepped off the bench to score the second goal in a 2-0 win over Stoke and prove that life goes on without Fernando Torres at Anfield.

The Uruguayan made a £22.8million move to England from Ajax in the January transfer window as part of Kenny Dalglish's plans to rebuild the 18-time champions of England.

And, although he began the match among the substitutes, Suarez could not have announced himself in any better fashion than with a goal at The Kop end following his 63rd minute introduction.

Wearing the No.7 shirt made famous by Dalglish and Kevin Keegan, the striker could yet see the Premier League's dubious goals panel deny him his 79th minute strike following the intervention of Andy Wilkinson, but he still claims the spotlight.

Raul Meireles had put Liverpool in front in the 47th minute, while injured £35m-man Andy Carroll was watching from the stands having been signed on deadline day as a replacement for new £50m Chelsea striker Torres.


Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz was born 24 January 1987 at Salto (Uruguay) is a striker of Uruguay national. He played for Ajax Amsterdam since 2008 before moved to Liverpool on 28 January 2011 when Ajax accepted an offer of £22.8 million (€26.5 million) from the English club. He replaced Fernando Torres, who moved to Chelsea, as the main striker of Liverpool.


In 2010, Suárez was named Dutch Footballer of the Year, having ended the season as top scorer in the Eredivisie with 35 goals in 33 league matches (49 goals in all competitions).*
