A Glimpse Into My Story

Mindset, determination and hard work are the perfect elements to success.

We all dream to achieve success in all aspects of our lives. But everything is easier said than done. Reality is much more cruel and if you want to make something of yourself, you have to go out there and you know… DO.

Do the work.

Do make sacrifices.

Do everything in your power to achieve it.

It has been 9 years.

It has been 108 months.

It has been 39,420 days.

It has been 946,080 hours,

Since I started this crazy dream of mine. I just realised that I have been running along this steep and winding road for quite a long time now.

And alas the day has finally come! The day when I cross the finish line. It all culminated with 1,200 questions that could either make or break me.

Although the outcome is still uncertain … but what I know is this.

A good mindset is a perfect mindset.

Determination is the fuel to success.

Hard work won’t betray.

Who would have thought that a little girl who dreamt of being a princess would one day heal and save lives.

Who would have thought that the day would come when someone would address me as Doctor.

Who would have thought that I would be presented with numerous opportunities to make a change in other people’s lives.

Although I am still quite lacking.

Although I have yet to wait for my verdict.

Although I have not yet attained the full rights to proudly put an M.D. after my name.

I am still quite proud of where I am and what I have achieved.

It wasn’t an easy path. And at some point I became an emotional mess. It was definitely a rollercoaster ride filled with countless ups and downs.

So here are some highlights and tidbits of my story …

My most memorable moment would be receiving a genuine thank you from one of my patients whom now I call a friend. However simple it may sound, it can never be priced and it’s value is quite unmeasurable.

My most notable low was when I was too busy tending to other people’s parents rather than my own. Surely I would have to make similar sacrifices in the future. And most certainly I would become disappointed in myself for doing so, but it comes with the job.

Sadly it is a perspective that most people don’t see. And yes it is one of the bitter sacrifices a doctor must make.

But at the end of this day I am quite thankful for this crazy experience.

I am emotionally and mentally drained.

I am physically tired.

BUT I am so blessed to have reached this far.

As of now, I am fervently praying for a good outcome. To finally have a reaffirmation that I did well and all my hard work eventually paid off.

Be inspired like I am.

Go find your dream. Work hard to achieve it. Put all your efforts into something you could be proud of.

It is never too late to make a name for yourself. A name you could proudly call your own.

      5. I honestly got goosebumps as I read through your reply. I am still overwhelmed with your feedback. You left me at a lost for words.
        I feel like a young child trying to tread on deep waters. I’m not sure if you read my other blog post about this, but creative writing isn’t quite applicable in my profession. But since I do enjoy writing, I gave blogging a shot . Not to mention the fact that the community is so amazing.
        I feel like I succeeded somehow. I will continue to hone and improve my craft for you and others to enjoy.
        Continue to inspire others with your encouraging words. It really went along way, most especially with me.😊

  3. Blessings to you, Eva, and congratulations.
    I took a similar path to become a clinician. It was hard work but allowed me a career. It was worth it. However, I would have to say that if I were to change anything it would be; to take more time to smell the roses. I am for the most part retired now though I stay involved. Some of the relationships in my life withered away from lack of involvement. I do have some regrets in that area. I would say to you; follow your dreams, but remember; people are more important than things.

    1. Thank you so much for dropping by and checking out my blog. I really appreciate it 😊

      Experience is definitely the best teacher. Thank you for sharing some of your wisdom. I still have a long way to go in order to build up my career. So many more sacrifices to make. I guess it comes with the profession.

      I’ll surely remember your words and keep it to heart. People should be my center not the materialistic things the world has to offer.

      Have a great day 😊
