Why I Am Here?

Standard

Assalamualaikum and good morning.

Oh, in Japanese it’s おはいよございます!Ohaiyo gozaimasu!

Or in an informal way, simply ohaiyo. >_<

Having passed my pre-clinical year as a vet student is not a guarantee that I am safe and am going to pass my clinical year. Honestly, I’m more confused. Not about what I’m currently learning, but on why I am here. Simply we get distracted by superficial issues, mostly in relationships with other human being (Japanese: にんげん), and there’s those issues with our environment – such as weather and society issues. And we will be engrossed in these issues, especially those that are closely related to our feelings, and we’ll be lost to find the answers to them.

Likewise, I always ask myself, what I’m doing here?

Failing in tests and relationships may have made that question even more prominent. Like a major issue. I’ve watched The Number Game on Discovery Channel and I can say that rejection can hurt physically. Feeling rejected by society and friends, sometimes even yourself (as you go taking the blame for whatever that’s not there) can really hurt us if not emotionally, physically. The only way to feel better is to face the rejection heads-on. 

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, aite?

Even God knows. He said in 94:6,

“Verily, along with hardship is ease.”

And another in 2:286,

“Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He get reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned. ‘ Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, Our Lord! Lay not upon us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us (Jews and Christians); Our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us Forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Maula (Patron, Supporter and Protector, etc.) and give us victory over the disbelieving people.”

Focusing on the first part of the ayat, Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. See? There’s no reason for you to backout whenever you feel like it. The only way to climb is to be at the bottom. Any faults now means more room of improvement later on. Before you die anyway.

So,

Focus.

Stay focused. 

You wanna be a vet. A very successful vet that can change the world. がんばります!Ganbarimasu!
