I had never cleaned my bed room when I was in elementary school. My mama always told me to fix my bed and my room, every time I woke up. She said, "you have to keep your room clean". But then, I never heard her. I went to school and left my messy room. However, I wasn't a little girl that had her mom stayed at home all day and all night, cooked for our breakfast, cleaned the whole house, and prepared my 'school things'. She's my mama. The strongest person that I knew. She used to work at office.
After graduating from elementary school, I entered PPMI Assalaam (Islamic Modern Boarding School in Surakarta, Central Java) and lived far from my parents. Suddenly, I realized. No one was going to remind me to fix my bed, to fix my room.
Every moment that I lived. Every lessons that I learned. Those made me realize, "I'm the only one who can fix me". So, I remembered what she had already told me. I always tried to keep my bed cleaned and arranged. I spent 2 years in boarding school. I took an acceleration class.
Now I know, that it's a good thing to have my room is always in 'nice' condition. I miss her, and for everything that she already told me. It taught me, to always fix every mistake that I made, to always do the right things, and make everything right.
To keep your bed and your room cleaned every time you wake up is just a simple thing. But, look what behind it all. It's good to always clean the room before start the day. It means that you already prepared yourself before starting the day.
You can go with smiles to your 'nice' room and don't forget to say "Assalaamualaykum" when leaving, and also say that when you come back.
