Own Sweet Time.

Posted in Uncategorized by Tinay on April 17, 2012

With summer in my hair and time on my hands, I’ve got more than enough room to churn out tangible whatnots over things that I’ve missed out ever since I stepped into medicine. While there are a few I have in mind, I cannot exactly say what those are just yet. Probably because I don’t want them jinxed? Haha. 🙂 I cannot say for sure, but the only thing I’m absolute about is that for the next six months, I will take things one day at a time. I will throw all caution to the wind, quietly tiptoe away from my comfort zone and find inspiration in the little things. 🙂

If there’s one indispensible thing I’ve learned lately is that success is not a race. Getting to it may be competitive, yes. But it’s certainly not a race. It’s not about how fast you to get to where you want to be, but it’s what you become as you get there. No need to ruthlessly elbow your way through the droves of equally ambitious people. And certainly no need to compromise the more important things in life up to a degree that may be irreversible.

So what am I trying to say really? Well, it’s true that getting caught up in your ambitions can put you to your limits, and that getting there is not just a walk in the park. But no one ever said that it’s the only path you’re entitled to take FOR NOW. No one ever said that as soon as you take that first step, you’re bound to continuously boogie your way to the end before hitting on a different track. Who knows? An unexpected detour may give you a fresher view on things- your goals included. It may actually let you see life unfolding in pure abandon. And you’ll never know that that was what you actually needed to keep you going.

Laughs. Loves and Through rose-colored glasses.
