After I moved to Jakarta, i’ve been thinking.
Why do I want to live in USA? I can find anything here in Indonesia. McD, KFC, Burger King, A&W, Pizza, hamburger, hot dog, nachos, starbucks, crocs, GAP, Clarks, everything, you name it. Any kinds of food, any kinds of clothing, any kinds of footware, any kinds of job. The most expensive to the cheapest. You can find all here.
So, why do people want to move to this utopia land of USA? Do they want to have a better live? they can find it on their homeland. Do they want a higher salary? a wider network? more experiences? more friends? or maybe just being outside their home world already making them crazy about living there.
I am wondering about other people from around the world whom I met when I was living on that land. What are they looking for in USA? Why do they want to deal through all the hard process to move there? Even for some people, they choose to be illegaly present in that country.
Well, I think every person has their own reason. I know some definite reasons from my friends. But still beyond those reasons that are outspoken, i believe, there are many reasons hidden inside their heart.
But as for me, I am still struggling and thinking about my answer. Why do I want to live in USA if i can get anything here and I have my family here. Am I pursuing for something?
As I enter 2010, I am praying that I can find my answers and doing what God’s want me to do.
Let Thy will be done, not mine.
