Everytime we do a #SempoiFestive program i feel blessed and grateful for not only having a pretty awesome #gengsempoi team but also for having the opportunity to spend time with the unfortunates ones and make them smile. Those smiles are my strenght to become a better person and motivates me to reach out even more out there. It was truly heartwarming this time celebrating #SempoiDiwali and experience the kids saying their prayers in Tamil, English n Bahasa. Like wow guys. InshaAllah, may this small gesture goes a long way. Aamiin. #SincereCharity #iamaproudvolunteer #friendship
Tonight I visited an old climbing buddy of mine. He chose to amputate both his legs. He has a very rare progressive genetic neuropathy that caused him to be on crutches for 5 yrs. He was the first patient I ever looked in the eyes & said, “I cannot help you. this is beyond me.” It was the first time I felt like I failed as a health care provider. I lay awake for two nights, after I said that to him. Pondering in what ways I felt like I had failed him, as a friend, climbing partner, & patient. I walked around with a knot in my stomach for a week after that. Not really quite deciphering why. As I watched my friend show up to “Smith,” less & less to climb, I knew he was about to make some hard choices. That was 2 yrs. ago., when he cut off his legs. This week he had his first round of chemo. He has lymphoma. A type that appears curable. I went over tonight to eat soup with him & his wife. He asked, “How’s your clavicle, Almine? I hear it’s not healing.” I said, “It’ll heal. It’ll just take time. It’s a ‘First World Problem.’ It’s bullshit, really. I just have stubborn bones, that’s all,” I laughed. “Imagine that.” His wife looked over at me, “We love you, & your stubborn bones.” I smiled, picking up my soup spoon, “I love you guys too.” Tom looked at me, smiled a faint smile, & said, “I like your shirt.” I laughed. “I love this shirt. I got it while visiting my family, in South Africa.” He winked, “I think I need to Harden The Fuck Up.” I replied, “You cut off both your legs, pal. I think you LIVE what this shirt says.” He said, “Let’s both Harden The Fuck Up.” He gave me his hand. I squeezed it & winked. “That sounds like a plan, my friend. It’s been a rough year...for a lot of people. It’s a solid piece of advice.” He grimaced, “This soup needs to Harden The Fuck Up too.” We all laughed. Looked at each other, & belly laughed until we cried. Sometimes laughter is the best medicine. Sometimes laughter that becomes tears is even better. 💖 #HTFU #friendship #climbinglife #whensoupisntenough #hardenthefuckup #climbing #soupkitchen #laughter #lifelessons #tears #grateful #friends #love #heart #instagood
