How do you want to live your life?

Reason to continue my work

on October 23, 2013

Had to share the story of this amazing young man. I met him in the course of my work and yes although it can be emotionally exhausting at times. I look forward to seeing him whenever I go to work. He inspires me so much! In a nutshell, he suffered a stroke not too long ago which resulted in very minimal movement on the right side of his body. But instead of feeling sorry for himself or give excuses to not attempt challenging activities. He is always the first one to volunteer himself. He also instinctively helps out others in need. Be it helping them pick up something they dropped or stand up to an injustice.

He epitomises the spirit of resilience and grit (A new theory in positive psychology). I am so proud to have been a part of his growing process. It is moments like this that propels us forward. I am truly humbled.
