sebab untuk hidup

bismillah,

There was this one guy from John Howard Society, a rehab center. He heard about Sowing for Jobs (a sewing for employment program), then went to his councillor and asked his councillor to sign him up.

Selepas ujian kemasukan, ternyata program instructor memasukkan beliau ke dalam kelas intermediate, walau dia belum pernah memegang mesin jahit. Jelas instructor, melihatkan semangat dan ketekunan, dia yakin pemuda ini boleh pergi jauh.

Bila saya ke JHS atas beberapa urusan, councillor beliau memberitahu saya, dia sudah minta sewing machine from the rehab center dan memulakan beberapa projek peribadi. Maka dia bertanya, peserta SfJ memang sudah ada homework ke? Saya menjawab, mana ada. Kelas pun belum bermula.

And now he has graduated from the intermediate level class. Determination leads to success peeps. Dari drugs/alcohol/whatever problem tak bersemangat nak hidup, kepada proactive belajar dan practice tanpa disuruh. Kesan tujuan dlm kehidupan dan self determination. Sangat mengkagumi semangat beliau.

Here is a picture from graduation day, he was wearing a hoodie he made himself. And he was proud.



Maka di saat kita longlai, lemah semangat, dan terasa hendak futur, carilah kembali tujuan kita berada di sini, tujuan kita lakukan apa yang sedang kita perjuangkan, dan sebagainya. Semoga ketemu himmah  dan motivasi kembali.
