A journey to remember

Beda Orang, Beda Pula Rezekinya

Posted on: May 6, 2016

Akhir-akhir ini, sedang marak beredar di social media satu photo quote yang menyorot soal rezeki. Gue lupa persisnya, tapi pada intinya, rezeki tiap orang berbeda-beda. Ada yang lebih cepat datang jodohnya, ada pula yang lebih cepat datang kemapanan karier-nya.

Dalam bahasa gue sendiri, ada yang dimudahkan jodohnya, sudah dipertemukan dalam usia kepala 2, ada pula yang harus lama menunggu atau jatuh-bangun terlebih dulu sampai akhirnya dipertemukan dengan Mr. Right-nya. Di sisi lainnya, ada yang sangat melesat cepat perjalanan karier-nya, memiliki kemapanan yang diimpikan semua orang dalam usia relatif muda, namun ada pula yang harus menunggu lebih lama hasil dari kerja kerasnya.

Dan tahukan kamu? Tidak selalu ada alasan di balik semua itu. Tidak selalu ada syarat pasti yang dapat membuat kita bisa dengan cepat mendapatkannya.

Sulit jodohnya karena tidak rupawan? Atau karena badan kita kurang kurus atau kurang gemuk? Tidak juga. Coba saja lihat sekitar. Adakah persamaan yang sifatnya absolut?

Atau susah jodoh karena sifat masih kurang bijaksana? Bisa jadi, tapi tetap saja… Banyak juga yang sudah sangat bijaksana malah disia-siakan begitu saja…

Kemudian soal rezeki juga sama. Banyak orang sudah berusaha keras memperbaiki diri. Banting tulang tanpa banyak hitung-hitungan. Sudah berusaha semampu mereka, tapi masih belum mendapatkan promosi yang mereka impikan.

Intinya jika sudah berusaha maksimal tapi masih belum dapat juga, jangan lantas berkecil hati! Memang hanya belum rezekinya. Tetap lakukan yang terbaik dan nikmati prosesnya! Segala sesuatu akan datang tepat pada waktunya. Dan sekali lagi, nikmati prosesnya! Terlalu sibuk meratapi hal-hal yang sudah dimiliki orang lain hanya akan membuat kita lupa menikmati hal-hal yang sudah kita miliki.

Nikmati masa-masa di mana kita masih punya cukup waktu untuk sesekali haha-hihi di tengah jam kerja. Atau masa-masa di mana kita masih selalu bisa berkonsultasi dengan atasan-atasan kita. Kelak pada level tertentu, keistimewaan itu akan perlahan berkurang, bahkan nyaris hilang. Pada posisi tertentu, justru atasan akan meminta pendapat profesional kita, bukan lagi sebaliknya. Memang menarik dan menantang, tapi jelas tidak mudah dan pasti ada saja konsekuensinya.

Atau bagi yang sama-sama masih single, nikmati saja kesendirian kita ini. Pergi jalan-jalan sebanyak yang kita bisa. Tekuni hobi setiap ada waktu untuk melakukannya. Konon setelah berumah tangga nanti, keadaan tidak akan lagi sama. Masih bisa traveling, masih bisa menekuni hobi, tapi tentu tidak seleluasa dan sebebas dulu. Bahkan sensasinya pun, sudah pasti akan berbeda. Bisa jadi sama menyenangkannya, tapi tetap berbeda. Misalnya, mana boleh ada holiday fling jika sudah ada suami dan anak-anak yang menunggu di rumah? Hehehe.

Nikmati perjalanan hidup kita. Jangan terlalu fokus mengejar ini-itu sampai-sampai hal yang kita ingat dari masa lalu kita hanya masa-masa penuh rasa depresi saja. Hal-hal yang akan kita kenang di masa depan sedang terjadi saat ini! Masa-masa ini tidak akan terulang dua kali. Jadi nikmati dan maksimalkan sebanyak yang kita bisa! Sulit soal jodoh atau sulit soal kekayaan, cukup usahakan dan dinikmati perjalanan jatuh-bangunnya! Dan ingat, hidup tidak hanya soal jodoh dan materi saja! Malah kalau buat gue, hidup itu yang penting bahagia 😉

Syukuri segala hal yang sudah kita miliki, sampai kelak kita mendapatkan hal-hal lain yang ingin kita miliki. Pantaskan diri, tapi jangan terlalu keras pada diri sendiri. Ikhlas dan berbahagialah dengan hidup kita saat ini. Jika kita berhasil membahagiakan diri dalam tiap hari yang kita lewati, bukankah itu sudah sama saja dengan “live happily ever after“? 😉

Always remember, you don’t need to have everything just to be happy. And do you know? The real happiness is when you’re capable to stay happy even when many things in your life are not so friendly to you.

Enjoy your life and happy long weekend!

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.
