|Shawl from Pastels by Ieka Ahmad|
The city feels a bit chilly today.
It's been raining since an hour ago and I'm enjoying the weather so far.
I hope it isn't too late to wish everyone Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri. I completely forgot to include my wish on my latest post last night. Maybe I was too excited to write about my best friend's wedding. Anyway, I know I haven't been writing about my life for quite a while now. I was busy taking care of my little baby.
Now, before you jump into a conclusion.
My little baby is not what you thought it was.
I started to get myself involved into business earlier this year. As a fresh graduate, I decided that it's the right time for me to make my dream come true especially at this young age. For some people they might have thought it's a waste of time and energy while I have a degree and could be offered with fantastic jobs and salaries. I don't have a good reason to deny that fact. In fact, I believe that they are right. However, I've always convinced that if you do something you enjoy, the results of your work will be exceptional. That's why I decided to start my own label Pastels by Ieka Ahmad. Opening and running my own boutique is one of my dreams since I was in the university. Insha'Allah I'd like to achieve that dream someday. I understand that the stakes are high because there are too many people selling similar stuff. But I do have faith in myself and I have clear ideas of why I wanted to do this at the first place.
As a young entrepreneur, achieving satisfaction after working very hard is the best feeling in the world. Alhamdulillah, I had the opportunity to give my parents my 6-month salaries on the first day of Eid which is something that I'm very proud of myself! Masha'Allah tabarakallah. I thank Allah for this opportunity.
Before I conclude this entry, I ask that may Allah increase me in wealth, health and imaan too.
Amin Ya Rabb.
