Bekerjalah dengan Cinta

Wanita paruh baya itu berperawakan pendek dan sedikit gemuk. Beberapa helai uban turut menghiasi mahkota kepalanya yang diikat dengan penjepit rambut. Namun raut wajah bulat telur itu seakan tak pernah sekalipun terlihat cemberut. Ia selalu tampak riang, sehingga menyembunyikan parasnya yang jelas telah digurati keriput.

Wanita itu memang tidak terlalu rentan, tetapi kekuatan dan kegesitan di masa mudanya niscaya telah direnggut usia. Karenanya, percayakah bahkan dari dirinya pun akan ada sebuah pelajaran tentang makna cinta?

* * *

Selalu…

Sabtu adalah hari yang ditunggu. Hari di mana nafas bisa dihela dengan panjang, dan sejenak mengistirahatkan raga dari rentetan kesibukan yang melelahkan. Saatnya pula untuk menikmati kebersamaan dengan seisi anggota keluarga. Sehingga, berbelanja di sebuah supermarket dekat rumah pun menjadi hiburan yang tak kalah meluahkan kebahagiaan.

Namun sepertinya tidak bagi wanita itu. Bagaikan tak mengenal hari libur, nyaris setiap waktu sosoknya selalu kutemui di sekitar kokusai kouryuu kaikan serta kampus.

Layaknya hari kerja, dikemasnya sampah-sampah yang berserakan serta dipisahkan antara yang terbakar dan tidak. Lantas ditaruhnya pada plastik yang berbeda warna. Sebentar kemudian diambilnya kain untuk mengelap kursi dan meja. Tak lupa, dengan vacuum cleaner dibersihkannya juga permukaan lantai. Setelah selesai ia segera beranjak ke toilet, lalu dengan mengenakan sarung tangan plastik dibersihkannya bekas kotoran manusia tersebut tanpa raut muka jijik.

Ia seperti tak peduli rasa lelah atau letih, walaupun terlihat pakaian seragam cleaning service biru mudanya telah basah bersimbah keringat. Tak juga kepenatan menyurutkan keramahannya untuk bertegur sapa dengan siapa saja saat bertemu muka.

Wanita itu entah siapa namanya. Hanya dengan panggilan obachan ia biasa disapa. Saat bersua denganku, juga selalu disempatkannya bertanya kabar. Bahkan ia pernah bercerita panjang lebar tentang anak-anak serta cucunya karena sering melihatku berjalan-jalan dengan keluarga. Beberapa kali pula saat usai kerja kulihat ia sedang berbelanja, masih lengkap dengan seragam biru mudanya. Lantas ditaruh barang-barang tersebut dikeranjang, dan perlahan dikayuhnya pedal sepeda tua untuk beranjak pulang.

Entahlah, rasanya tak ada perasaan iri dihatinya saat di hari libur ia ternyata harus bekerja, sementara aku justru berleha-leha. Ia bahkan tetap saja semangat bekerja dengan penuh suka cita. Begitu pula dengan obachan dan ojichan lain yang pernah kutemui, mereka selalu asyik menikmati pekerjaannya. Mencabut rumput liar di pekarangan kampus ketika musim panas, menyapu jalanan dari daun yang berserakan pada musim gugur, bahkan dengan bersusah payah turut menyerok tumpukan bongkahan salju di musim dingin.

Terlihat betapa bergairahnya mereka ketika memang waktunya harus bekerja. Gairah dalam bentuk kesungguhan dalam menekuni apapun jenis pekerjaan, yang mungkin tak dipandang orang walau dengan sebelah mata. Karenanya, tak terdengar ngalor-ngidul obrolan hingga jam istirahat tiba untuk sejenak melepaskan lapar dan dahaga. Berselang satu jam kemudian, mereka akan kembali sibuk menekuni pekerjaannya. Senantiasa egitu, dari waktu ke waktu.

Rutinitas mereka mungkin tidaklah istimewa. Bekerja demi memperoleh sedikit nafkah atau sekedar menghabiskan waktu luang, tentu lebih baik dari bermalas-malasan di rumah. Terlebih-lebih itu adalah pekerjaan kasar, bukan kerja kantoran yang menyenangkan dengan penyejuk atau pemanas ruangan.

Lalu mengapa mereka selalu saja bekerja seolah tak pupus oleh lelah? Bahkan bekerja bagaikan sebuah energi yang tak kunjung padam, mengalir dalam pembuluh darah serta menggerakkan jiwa dan raganya.

Sekejap akupun tepekur, kemudian mahsyuk merenung…

Dan kulihat ada gairah membara yang berpendar dari balik kerut-merut kelopak mata tua itu. Seolah sinar matanya menyiratkan pesan agar bekerjalah dengan cinta. Karena bila engkau tiada sanggup, maka tinggalkanlah. Kemudian ambil tempat di depan gapura candi untuk meminta sedekah dari mereka yang bekerja dengan suka cita. (Kahlil Gibran). Wallahu a’lamu bish-shawaab.

In choosing breakfast smoothies for weight loss, it is important to find out how efficient the meals are for losing weight as well as how they can entice the taste buds of the people eating, how varied they are, and how easy they are to prepare.

Amidst the rising number of people opting not to eat breakfast because of their need to rush to work or perform household chores, as the power-up meal of the day, we should not underestimate breakfast. Breakfast gives us the energy needed for us to embark in various activities of the day, so skipping them should never become a habit, even in the pretext of wanting to skip some meals because of the want to lose weight.

In fact, it could be possible that those who do not eat breakfast regularly will be less likely to lose weight, because losing weight requires exercise, and one can only exercise when the body has stored up enough energy from carbohydrates.

Breakfast is a must, even when rushing, so here are some breakfast smoothies for weight loss that can ensure a healthy morning:

1) White egg omelette - If you are in a rush in the morning, you can prepare the white egg from five eggs at night and them just pour it in the frying pan with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Wait for the egg to turn brown on its edges, then begin putting all the vegetables you like - like mushrooms, onions, string beans, bell pepper, or whatever suits your taste. You can vary your vegetables every day so that you will have a different recipe. You may also place in some protein-packed foods, like chicken, beef, or fish.

2) Cereals - Cereals are easy to prepare; they can be easily bought at the local department store. Cereals can be eaten by itself, but serving it with milk can really provide nutrition as fortified cereals already have plenty of vitamins and minerals; milk will give protein and increase calcium. There are plenty of cereals available in the market, so it is one of the most versatile breakfast smoothies for weight loss. They are also appealing to children as these cereals are often flavorful and colorful. An alternative to cereals is oatmeal, although oatmeal takes time to cook.

3) Wheat bread sandwich - Two slices wheat bread, especially those embedded with raisins, will be fine for a great carbohydrate-packed breakfast. The carbohydrates in wheat bread are easy to digest, thus giving a ready source of energy. There are also assortments to just eating wheat bread alone; it is perfectly alright to make vegetable, fish, or chicken sandwiches out of them.

These three breakfast smoothies for weight loss are a breeze to prepare and can help maintain your weight at a manageable level while giving you energy needed to accomplish what you have to do.
