"Mungkin atau tidak mungkin kita bersama, itu bukan perihal penting. Sebab, diminta atau tidak diminta, aku akan selalu ada. Kau tahu atau tidak tahu, aku akan selalu berdoa. Percaya atau tidak percaya, aku akan tetap cinta."

"Katakanlah saya menderita penyakit gila nomor sekian, yang tak memberi hak tubuh untuk istirahat demi tagihan tagihan yang tak akan saya bawa ke akhirat kelak."

Idham Alwi, meracau kala dhuha

Dear Septyan Gilang Himawan,

Selamat berjumpa kembali dengan hari dimana kamu dilahirkan. Selamat menikmati selebrasi tahunan atas segala pencapaian sampai angka 21. Juga selamat berkontemplasi atas upaya perbaikan diri untuk kehidupan yang akan datang.

Sebuah momentum yang kamu sebut sebagai revolusi kedirian. Momentum dimana kamu bisa memulai berdiri kokoh dengan kedua kakimu sendiri. Momentum kedewasaan dari segala proses yang telah kamu jalani selama ini. Selamat menikmati menjadi seorang Septyan Gilang Himawan seutuhnya. :)

Aku percaya pada banyak hal yang telah kamu lalui sampai sekarang yang menjadikan kamu sebagai kamu yang seutuhnya. Cinta, takdir, juga kehidupan. Iya.. Aku yakin kehidupan telah memberi kamu banyak hal, menceritakan kamu tentang banyak kisah yang membuat kamu bersyukur atas hidup yang kamu miliki.

Aku berterima kasih kepada Tuhan yang telah mempertemukan manusia sepertimu. manusia yang bisa disebut sebagai partner dalam segala hal. Teman ketika sedang tertawa, musuh ketika sedang berargumen siapa yang pantas jadi pacar Kak Rara, kakak ketika sedang bercerita, juga sahabat ketika sedang membutuhkan bahu untuk bersandar. Terima Kasih!

Thanks for being you, I’m so proud of you..

Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories.

1. Connecting the dots.

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

2. Love and loss.

Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.

3. Death.

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

— Steve Jobs’ Stanford commencement speech

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be

I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

Yeah, let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

Saya tahu lagu ini ketika Marshanda menyanyikannya di Hitam Putih. Dan saya suka! :D
