Then I had a very good lunch with SH in A La II (a Jap restaurant at Ipoh Garden East) and voiced out my worries. The good thing about having good girlfriends are they are a great tonic to the soul...especially when we discuss our fears and plans. Further chatted with PS and Mich, decided that if i have focused my mind on something, I should make it happen no matter how tough the competition is, no matter how much harder I have to work. I made it past STPM and the one of the toughest medical school in the country, I should be able to withstand the challenges ahead.
I think this journey to become a surgeon is not about the destination...it's about the process of moulding myself into a world-class, highly-skilled, technically-gifted, ethical & compassionate surgeon. The process may be shorter or longer, easier or even tougher than what I projected it. Yet, as long as I am living out my dream and doing my utmost best in the most principled way, I know that I am on the right track. After searching the Scriptures and having some time off with my Lord, I am so much more relieved and motivated d. So, by the end of the day, I guess I am back to my normal, 'kick-ass' self again.
