First Post of 2021
I realized I’ve been so terrible at posting. For a while my life just felt immobile and not a whole lot was happening. Moving to L.A. in the midst of the pandemic was one of the hardest adjustments I‘ve had to make. Being here I lost a sense of who I was and it felt like I couldn’t get out of a gloomy hole. It took a lot of self care and putting in effort with my mental health but I’m finally back to feeling more alive and like myself. It’s a reminder that if you don’t want to feel terrible - you don’t need to. It’s all about your mindset and putting the hard work in towards creating the positive changes you desire.
Some exciting news! I start PA school in 2 months and I’m beyond thrilled. This is the moment I’ve been working rigorously for the past 3 years. I’ve been dreaming of this day. I had a vision and I continued to believe in it even when the odds weren‘t in my favor. If something gives you that spark, you know that’s your calling. I can’t wait to start making a difference and be a part of the change for greater and more diverse healthcare.
Now I finally understand why things happened the way it did. I saw this quote on my timeline and it really resonated with me. Life has a strange way of working it’s magic.
Here is a funny story/example. This was during my job seeking period after moving to LA. I showed up to an interview that I thought would be for a Spine Clinic but it turned out to be for a Bone Marrow Transplant program. I only figured it out when I sat down and the person interviewing me introduced herself. My recruiter somehow forgot to tell me this “minor” detail. Although having been prepped and ready for a spine clinic related interview, I quickly adjusted my mind and quickly adapted. I ended up getting offered the position right on the spot with having zero experience or knowledge with oncology. Working with cancer patients and seeing the world of transplant has really opened my eyes and I’m so thankful that life has led me to me here. If you show up as the best version of yourself, you’ll always win. TRUST IN THE PROCESS.
