Beberapa waktu lalu, there’s a forwarded e-mail in my inbox. Kata-kata pembukanya kurang lebih : “…bagi teman-teman bila butuh inspirasi hidup, semoga quotes indah dari… (artis ABG) ini bisa menemani dan menyemangati..” Then I scroll down..read through the pages, hoping to find something deep enough (karena kata-kata pembuka e-mail yang cukup hebat tadi)..tapi reaksi yang ada setelah baca “inspirasi hidup” tersebut : menghela nafas panjang, keluar keringet besar kayak di kartun-kartun Jepang, dan cuma bisa bilang ke diri sendiri, “ya ampiun…that’s it?”. Maunya langsung mereply ke teman yang forward email itu, tapi gak tega karena mungkin for them it IS deep, it IS a kind of inspiration needed in life, etc. Jadi just to respect that, mengirim komentar untuk e-mail itu akhirnya dibatalkan. Isi “inspirasi hidup” itu bener-bener hanya ‘quotes’, hanya dikutip dari –mungkin- percakapan sehari-hari sang artis tanpa benar-benar ada cerita life-inspiring moments behind it. Misalnya, kutipan keinginan keluar negeri ‘jika sudah masuk university’. Nothing wrong with it, I want the same thing too and still work on it to make it happen, but to call it a life-inspiring quotes (for everybody)? Kayaknya berlebihan deh. Ada juga keluhan seputar caught into troubled situation karena hujan. If you really want to make RAIN as an inspiring moments for everybody, say something nice about it, even though it might put you in a troubled situations. Quotes something like, how this rain makes you more patient? Or how it makes you have the chance to laugh at yourself? That, is quite a ‘healthy’ quotes for the soul. Tapi ya begitulah, everything is so shallow these days. Just a muttering words (but it came from a celebrity!) can be considered a life-inspiring quotes.
