I also put my mind to something else as I started the new year. If I want something bad enough and I put my mind to it, it will come. I realized this week my mind is finally cooperating with me! I got my first B in HUBI (on a major test!)! I know that doesn't sound super exciting because I'm sure you (like me) are hoping I get A's but if you have read any of my previous posts, med school ain't easy. And, it's a testament to myself that I am even "good" at school again! I am just relieved and happy that the adjustments I have made are paying off. So far so good and I am going to stick with my new routine. Some powerful messages from classmates have been emailed/posted tonight about our reason for being where we are now. I know without a doubt that I am where I supposed to be. I know without a doubt I am supposed to be a doctor. Of course I have some moments of doubt, but when I come back to reality and really think about my purpose and reason for doing so, it is exactly where I am supposed to be.
As the week concludes I hope to continue this "high" into this week and weeks to come. I am excited to get back into the gym this week and do something else other than running! So, as we start this new week just remember to relax, enjoy life and don't sweat the small stuff. I'll leave you with a quote I posted on Instagram earlier this week that I truly believe in. "If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present."
Till the next time...
PS: Here are some pictures and a song from PINK that I LOVE. It just seemed fitting for this post.
