A journey to remember

The Rejections

Posted on: February 15, 2015

One week ago, while I was lying on my bed with bad cough and high fever, I received an e-mail from a stranger offering a pretty interesting job opportunity. He found me through Linkedin, so I clicked his profile right away, interested to know more about him and his Company.

I was actually and literally very sick. I was too tired of my crazy working hours in the office. However, I was committed to myself. I would never leave something unfinished. I have a responsibility to finish that one big thing I’m doing at work right now. Besides, deep in my heart, I still like my job here, I’m still proud of being a part of this Company, and I still want to give it a try.

Without any further chance to get to know about the opportunity that knocked, I said no, again for a few times in the past ten months.  But this time, I don’t know why, rejecting this one reminds me to a few past opportunities that I pushed away.

Just like rejecting the guys who came close to me, rejecting a job offer is also never easy to me. There’s always that time where I wonder…

What if I was wrong? What if that was actually the best thing that I could ever have?

What if that company could be one big thing that I desire in the future?

What would I learn if took that job?

Who would I meet?

Where would I be?

What would I have?

And would I be happier if I were there?

It’s not that I regret the jobs that I finally ended up with. I know that I have achieved so much and I’m so grateful for it. But you know… no matter how awesome the life that you have, a wonder will always cross your mind once or twice in your lifetime.

So I don’t write this blog as an expression of regret, I write this to remind myself to always think before I make such a big decision in my life. I want to take that one decision that will not make me keep looking back at my past over and over again. I hope that I will never hope to turn back the times. Because sometimes, when we reject something, it’s not always their loss, it can be our own loss instead.

Think before rejecting, and once we make our mind, we have to do our best to make the most of it. Make sure that even if someday we do look back to our past, we can be the one who says, “I used to have that one option, but I’m proud that I chose this path. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have this decent life and I wouldn’t have met these people of my life.”

Make the decisions and grow awesome!

The beauty of diversity. I'm glad that I met them along my career path at Lazada. Just a little help like this could mean everything to me and The Lens Story. Many thanks! ❤️

#friends #friendshipgoals #diversity #photography #photooftheday #canon #snapseed #thelenstory Find someone who loves you properly.
The one who never intentionally let you wait for him.
The one who never makes you have to wonder how he truly feels about you.
The one who will definitely catch you and hold you tight as you fall for him.
The one who gives you all he has to be a better man, to fix what goes wrong, to fight for you and to never let you go.
You are too old for another Mr. Wrong, reward yourself with the right one.
Love yourself enough to leave your past, you deserve better.

#love #life #quote #photography #photooftheday #thelenstory I'm not perfect. I make mistakes. I do the things I'm not proud of. I give up, sometimes. I hurt people, mostly the ones that I actually care about. I have a lot of flaws, but at least, I'm trying hard to be a better person. I'm no saint nor angel, but I'm not a pure evil either. I'm simply a human who is trying to be the very best that I can be. I'll never stop learning, until my very last breath.
