I remember what Randy Pausch said. He used to say, “the metaphor I’ve used is… somebody’s going to push my family off a cliff pretty soon, and I won’t be there to catch them. And that breaks my heart. But I have some time to sew some nets to cushion the fall. So, I can curl up in a ball and cry, or I can get to work on the nets”. This quote hit me a lot and reminds me that there are things we can’t control. But, we should be prepared for it and try to cope things ahead.


Unfortunately, I’m not going to talk about life and its metaphor. Instead, I’ll take the words of Randy Pausch literally, especially the word “sew”. These days, I observe only a few had the passion of sewing. To some, and I’m proud of them, made it as their profession. I envy mothers who taught their children how to sew. I can conclude that they are good mothers and a very responsible one. So, why should we learn to sew? What are the advantages of doing it?

When Randy Pausch said, “I have some time to sew”, It means for me that we all have the time, if that’s our priority and you love doing it. Sewing is a good hobby. It is not stressful and keep you in focus. It will help you feel relax, especially if you have a problem. All you have to do is sit down and start sewing. Then, all your worries are gone away. In other words, this a good refresher to yourself.

Furthermore, Pausch told us that he “ can curl up in a ball and cry”. For me, this mean you are just done and ready to accept and forgive yourself. It is like also after you sew, you can now use the output of your work. How does it feel to wear your own sew dress? Fulfilling, right? This can boost your confidence. Imagine if you are really good at sewing, you will become more creative and your work is such a unique thing.

Lastly, Pausch adds, “I can get to work on the nets”. This means continue doing your nets. Don’t give up easily. I know sewing can be hard at first, but if you’ll learn the basic, it will be just a piece of cake. Maintain the attitude of “I can”. You can sew your own torn clothes. Why buy a new one if you can fix it? Plus, you can save your money for a right cause. Better start sewing now.
