Think about the things that you value the most and think of all that you’ve done to acquire them. Maybe it was a little hard work, or perhaps you knew the right people, or maybe you were simply in the right place at the right time. What are your blessings and how did you get them? For me, my blessings exist in every aspect of my life. Life in itself is a blessing, along with my education, the fact that I’m in medical school, my family and friends, different opportunities that have been extended to me, plus many more. I worked hard for these beautiful things in my life. Many times, I sacrificed a lot to have them. But most importantly, I prayed fervently for them.
I remember when I wanted to get into medical school. I would have given up my first born child in exchange for an acceptance letter if I needed to. I’m also pretty sure getting into medical school was my one and only prayer, every day from the moment I submitted my application until I got in. When I received my first acceptance letter, I felt like I hit the jackpot and when multiple acceptances were rolling in, I was beside myself. I nearly fell out at work when I found at that I got into my first choice school (which is where I am now).
