A journey to remember

I Promise This Is My Last Mellow Blog:p

Posted on: November 14, 2010


Malam ini, gue chatting sama seorang teman yang sebenernya gue kenal dari teman gue yang lain. Of course I will not let you know what we talked about. Intinya hari ini gue jadi sadar… apa yang gue kira baik, belum tentu bener-bener sebaik kelihatannya. Ada beberapa shocking statements dari teman gue itu yang membuat gue jadi ngerasa nggak kenal sama seseorang yang lagi kita obrolin di YM itu. Padahal sebelumnya, gue yakin kalo gue udah cukup mengenal orang itu dengan baik. Dan gue percaya, teman chatting gue itu enggak bohong. Karena sebenernya, apa yang dia ceritain jadi kayak memperjelas hal-hal yang dulu pernah terjadi antara gue sama orang itu.

At the end of our chat, I figured out… this is the reason why we have to trust our prayers.

Saat kita mengenal seseorang, kita cuma denger apa yang dia bilang ke kita. Kita cuma tau apa yang kita lihat. TAPI, kita nggak pernah tahu apa yang ada di pikiran dan hatinya dia. Kita nggak akan pernah tahu seluruh masa lalu yang membentuk kepribadian dia. Dan, kita nggak akan pernah tahu rencana apa yang dia simpan dalam benaknya tentang kita.

Mungkin DULU, gue nggak ada habisnya bertanya sama Tuhan… kenapa jadi begini? You know lah, gue minta diberikan yang terbaik sama Tuhan, tapi ketika yang terjadi tidak sesuai dengan harapan gue, gue malah kembali bertanya-tanya; kenapa?

Dalam banyak hal… kita hanya perlu percaya sama doa yang kita panjatkan. Mungkin kita nggak akan langsung paham sama cara Tuhan menjawab doa kita itu… tapi kita tetap harus percaya bahwa emang itu yang terbaik buat kita. Dan menurut pengalaman gue ini, kita cuma butuh waktu untuk menyadari kebenaran dari jawaban Tuhan atas doa kita itu…

Buktinya, kalo hari ini aja gue bisa tau banyak hal yang dulu gue pertanyakan, maka gue yakin, kelak gue juga akan dapet jawaban dari apa yang gue pertanyakan sampai detik ini.

Jadi ya sudahlah… Secara gue udah bertekad pengen ngejadiin weekend ini sebagai hari-hari terakhir gue bertingkah ala drama queen, gue janji ini blog terakhir gue yang isinya sedih-sedih. Gue pernah loh, pindah alamat blog hanya karena gue ngerasa, isi blog yang pertama itu kok kesannya suram banget gitu. Tapi kali ini, karena ini blog udah banyak visitor-nya (hahahaha, kepedean banget yah gue), rasanya sayang kalo gue ganti blog lagi.

Untuk selanjutnya, gue cuma pengen bersenang-senang, dan buru-buru nyelesain kerjaan gue yang nggak kelar-kelar ini!

Really hope that the days after this will be easier for meJ Good night, folks!

I used to read a quote written by my former lecture saying that even a bad decision would always be much better than no decision at all. It reminded me of the decisions I put on hold and I asked myself, “What prevents me from making all those decisions?” I could instantly listed down many personal reasons that didn’t even sound good to myself. So there I made a couple of decisions; the good ones and the bad ones, and apparently it was so true: even bad decision was still better than no decision at all. First of all, it helped me to move on. I no longer waited for this and that; I made decisions and I started to make the actions. It also gave me a peace of mind knowing that I owed nothing to anyone, not even to myself. And most importantly, all those decisions made me learn, notably the bad ones. It’s not that I intentionally made a bad one, but well, how did I know my decision was bad until I gave it a try? Ever since the day I decided to stop putting my decisions on hold, my life felt a lot lighter and I have never been more proud of myself. Other people might not be happy with my decisions, but I only do what I’ve got to do and they can’t blame me for having courage to do the things they’re not willing to do. If it holds me back and nobody wants to make the call, then let me do the honor. It’s actually that simple, and again, it sets me free.
My biggest career goal is always running my own business. I have been an entrepreneur even since I was a seven years old. I was never hesitate everytime I saw an opportunity to earn some cash to buy toys and comic books. Graduating from college and starting my first corporate job has stopped me from doing my own business. I was too busy to do something else beside my main job. I tried to run a small jewelry business but then I got bored. I came to learn that if I want to start a business, I have to do something bigger. But of course, a bigger scale own business will also require a bigger effort! The comfort of corporate job made me decide to postpone starting a new business until at some point, it was no longer comforting to me. I still remember one night I went home feeling extremely upset with my boss and I just told myself, “I can’t do this forever. I can do much better than working for a jerk.” Right at that moment, I decided to start my biggest dream: starting my own business. Not so long after that, @thelenstory was born.
There is this one little secret about @thelenstory. There was one particular guy who made me fall deeper with photography. He was so talented he could make an old dirty lamp look beautifully glow in his pictures. I still remember that day on a boat, he took pictures of me and he smiled behind his lens. That kind of smile that made me feel the prettiest girl on earth. I didn’t know why but I just loved seeing this guy holding his camera. I even still loved it when he took pictures of me with his grumpy face! At the end of the day, The Lens Story is way more than just a girl who fell in love. The ups and downs, and all lifetime savings that I’ve spent have been the greatest leap of faith I’ve ever taken in my entire life. That one guy from my past was just a starting point. He was my inspiration, he made me believe that there were many hidden talents like him out there and I would be more than happy to help them start their professional career in photography. That was the very beginning story on how my start-up was born, and to me, that will always be one of my favorite stories to tell.
