A journey to remember

Dear God

Posted on: July 6, 2013

Dear God;

Today I have something to ask… I would like to humbly ask for Your guidance.

My dear God… please help me to see my mistakes, clearly, as well as I could easily see other people’s mistakes.

Please God… don’t let me take a wrong direction. Don’t let me make a decision when I’m angry. Don’t let anything or anyone cloud my own judgment. Please guide me to always do the right things in my life.

Please let me being surrounded by good people. I may be someday in the same places with the bad guys, but please God… don’t ever let me being a part of them. Protect me from their influences and don’t ever let me think it’s okay to do those horrible things just because they do it all the times.

God… thank you for the decent life You have given to me. Please keep me away from being greedy, from taking the pennies I don’t deserve, and from worship money beyond everything. Please bless me for everything I do to earn my life, my dreams, my future.

My dearest God… as I do always try to be a good person, then I believe You already have a good man to stay with me for the rest of my life. I may fall for the wrong ones sometimes, but please God, don’t let me be blinded continuously. Kindly wake me up and give me strength to walk away.

If I finally have found my Mr. Right, please give me strength to hold on, to never give up on him, to love him and cherish every moment with him until my last breath. When hard times come to us, please do remind me to the very first days I fell in love and to every single day which ever made me want to be with him for eternity.

Dear God… you are the One who knows all of my flaws. I don’t always fulfill my promises to You, missed my Prayer to get close to You, I make mistakes, I hurt the people whom I love, but at the end of my life, I only want to be remembered as a good person. So please… I’ll always need You to guide me walking on the right path. Maybe someday I’ll get lost, but please… do always give me a way back home.

 

With love;

Riffa.

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.
