am i actually maturing???

I wake up to yet another day; a new day.

But this time, I was different.

It wasn’t because of a dream,

or anything life-changing yesterday…

What changed was just…

me

How do I explain this?

I just woke up one day,

a random day out of all the days it could have been,

and decided to change my life.

As cliche as it sounds,

I wanted the change to start from me.

I didn’t want a traumatic event to change me,

or another person triggering a change in me…

I wanted to be responsible for my own life’s good outcomes.

#empowerment? #maturing?

Whatever it is,

I am really happy this is happening.

I shall do my best to keep this up!

//

I hope you’re happy for me.

I wish the same would happen to you too πŸ™‚

 

trust the earth

you are doing fine,

i promise,

as long as you choose to breathe for another day.

people around me have been dying or disappearing;

don’t you see it’s such a great gift to be alive?

trust the earth that for your sadness, happiness will come.

trust the earth that for your anguish, peace will grace you.

trust the earth that for all the days you chose to breathe, you will be rewarded with purpose.

i fear, yet fear not…

My heart is racing; It keeps me up at night.

How can my heart ache so badly with so many fears? I’ve never wanted anything this badly.

I look into the mirror and I take a deep breath.

It wasn’t something bad that triggered this panic; oh in fact, it was like a gentle reminder from God himself. That is why I tremble in fear.

I know my calling and I know the tough road ahead.

In dreams and visions I see and feel the turmoil and hardship to come. I feel it in my dreams and it channels constant fear through my veins when I’m awake.

I fear, yet fear not.

He plans the best for me and I will take whatever he plans for me.

He watches over me.

motivation boost

I’m having finals in a few days and here’s some motivation boost if you need some πŸ™‚

All the best to all of you hoomans out there!

motivation for pre-med and med students

Medical school is not a place for smart people, but for those who are insane enough to dream for it, pray for it, work hard for it and live for it.

It’s for those who are crazy enough to want the sense of purpose that fuels their veins.

And it is insanity, then let it be, for even if it means more sleepless nights, more examinations to pass, more years in university and more sacrifices to endure.

Nothing will change. I will still keep choosing this path over and over again even for a hundred more days and a thousand more years. And nothing in this world can stop me from taking an adventure as worthy taking as this, even for a million more lifetimes.

I stumbled upon this and I knew that this was the motivational quote I have been looking for for years. Every part of this quote, I am able to agree with, with conviction. Reading this quote gives me strength during burn outs and keeps me in track when I lose sight of what I want to do with my life.

I thought I’d share it with you guys, who ever is in the chase towards a life-long career like me too πŸ™‚
