A journey to remember

I Didn’t Change, I Evolved

Posted on: June 27, 2017

Ceritanya tadi pagi, Arfa keponakan gue iseng bongkar-bongkar isi rak buku gue. Dia menarik keluar buku tahunan SMA gue dulu. Arfa tanya sama gue, “Foto Aunty yang mana?”

Gue lalu membuka buku itu sampai ke halaman yang menampilkan biodata gue. Dan gue terdiam sejenak. Lalu gue ketawa cekikikan, sendirian… menertawakan foto dan tulisan gue di buku itu.

Foto gue di buku itu tampak pucat. Boro-boro pakai lipstik dan eyeliner, pakai bedak juga tidak! Dan yang paling lucu adalah kutipan yang gue tulis di biodata itu, “Cinta akan abadi selama ada di hati. Love you, guys!”

Oh my God… did I really write that? It was unbelievably cheesy! πŸ˜€

Dalam hati gue membatin… jika gaya penulisan gue persis seperti itu, pasti sudah enggak ada lagi orang yang mau baca blog gue ini, hehehehe.

Dari situ gue jadi teringat betapa berbedanya diri gue yang sekarang ini. Dalam hal apa saja? Berikut ini perbandingannya!

Sekarang: pakai jilbab mesti rapih… harus simetris kanan dan diri. Dulu: jilbab acak-acakan, miring sebelah juga gue tidak peduli.

Sekarang: rajin pakai make-up, rajin perawatan supaya wajah tidak jerawatan. Dulu: jerawat besar di sana-sini, wajah tiga kali lebih berminyak dibanding sekarang ini.

Sekarang: peduli dengan fashion, feminim, penggemar high heels. Dulu: pakai baju seadanya, cukup kaos longgar, jins kebesaran, dan sandal gunung.

Sekarang: pekerja keras, perfeksionis, idealis. Dulu: malas, asal-asalan, tukang nyontek.

Sekarang: percaya diri, optimis, I will fake it until I make it. Dulu: pemalu, minder, pesimis.

Sekarang: a go getter. Dulu: cukup ikut air mengalir… kalau dapat ya alhamdulillah, tidak dapat juga tidak apa-apa.

Dan yang paling penting, sekarang: alhamdulillah, hidup lebih bahagia dan lebih mudah merasakan syukur. Dulu: hidup seadanya, tidak neko-neko, tapi tidak sering merasa bahagia.

Itulah sebabnya gue tidak percaya bahwa seseorang tidak akan pernah bisa berubah. Kalau gue boleh menilai diri gue sendiri, yang gue lakukan bukan cuma sekedar merubah penampilan, tapi juga merubah kebiasaan, prinsip, dan pola pikir. Buat gue, itu sudah seperti berevolusi! Memang tidak mudah, tapi gue meyakini di mana ada kemauan, di situ ada jalan.

Make an effort to evolve, start from the little things. If I can do it, you can do it!

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.
