Life is all about how you see it and experience it – It mainly is all about a term called PERSPECTIVE.

So you undergo something happy, something sad or something you got upset about so what's next? Emotions begin to build up and you start to react accordingly, but that's perfectly human and fine, it's the after effect on you that matters and how it begins to mold you into who you are at this very moment. It either changes you or not. Either way life goes on and you find yourself starting all over again. Perspective matters.

You Don’t Need To Have Everything Figured Out

Ever get this feeling that you need to have your whole life figured out because you were expected to and deep inside you just want things to happen “as planned”? Well I often got, yes that’s past tense, that feeling always before. Nowadays I seem to receive a lot of emails on advice on how to get things figured out…

The Things That Really Matter

If I were to ask you what matters most in your life what would those be? Here’s my take. Focus on what really matters because time is even more than gold, it’s all there is.

How To Move On After A Relationship

I was supposed to write part 4 of my 13 blog series on the lessons I have learned during medical school but I just needed to take a break to write on this because of an email I received where I promised the sender that I’d write about the challenge he is presently facing. And so here’s my open entry…

What Medical School Taught Me Part Three

Now on to part three (3). Third lesson – PATIENCE. I probably lived most of my life under expectations I have set for myself to the point that if I didn’t get to achieve it, impatience gets the better half of me. But that mindset just didn’t help me in my journey way back in medicine. Before I stepped into…

What Medical School Taught Me Part Two

So this is part two of my promised thirteen lessons I have learned from medical school. Took sometime but here goes. Second lesson – COURAGE. I believe that fear is something learned, it’s something that’s the cause of an experience we had or still have but as they say you can’t really learn how to be brave unless you stare…

What Medical School Taught Me Part One

There are just a lot of things medical school taught me so I decided to break it down into parts citing in the lesson I have learned, making this my own “13 reasons why you should not give up on it.” First lesson- SELF WORTH.

When Love is Not Enough

In this day and age I think love is over-sensationalized that it creates us, or some of us at that, to begin developing a mindset of unrealistic expectations about how love should be, actually is and what it can do for us. But really the question is – when is love not enough? For me to address the question here…

How I Changed My Life by Remembering the Past

I remember reading a quote somewhere, it says that if there won’t be any change then there won’t be any butterflies. I guess the process of metamorphosis plays a big part in this saying which makes sense, the transformation does and that’s how my past taught me. Pain is an understatement of what had happened to me in the past…

Things I Could Have Told My Younger Self

There comes a time in one’s life when you start rethinking on how your life has been for the past years, nope these aren’t sentimental moments in fact these are self-realizations we all need so we may achieve the self-awareness we should be equipped of for us to know who we truly are. We begin by asking what were the…

The Seven Perspectives of Life

No matter what we do there always comes a point in our lives when we bear thoughts of having to have done some things in life before when we were “younger” – these are called realizations, and sad part of this it when it hits you it usually happens during a crisis in life. But as what I always say…
