Medicine, like every other course or areas of study can be disheartening and terribly stressful. Up to a point of not only rebelling against taking care of personal health [read: enggan mandi & makan] but also thinking of
being depressed and commit suicide calling it quits. And yo! I’m not talking solely about the monstrous amount of academic work as a med student but also the other life that comes with it – as a daughter, as a Malaysian & Muslim scholar bla bla bla… The constant battle with expectations. Sometimes, absurd!
[menggelupur jap…. okeh..sambung]
Motivation keeps us going. Well.. keeps me going. I’d have to do “self-saikosis” by sticking bits of things (quotes) on the wall and in my books/notes from time to time. Or simply flicking through my little blue book of quotes. I’d occasionally hunt for self-help and inspiring talks from the internet, wallpaper for my PC etc. Just enough to spark that light to get myself going for that particular moment cause I know that before long, I’d have relapsed to the pre-motivational stage. Biasalah kan.. mood ala2 endometrium. Sekejap tinggi, sekejap rendah. Oloh.. jantina pun yg memang ada endometrium. Ker ada yang masih ingat Minci nih lelaki? I’m a girl for goodness sake.
Recently, I’ve pasted on my wall the words from The Secret Scrolls. Perceived depression must be fought and chucked to the side for I aim to graduate by 2008. A wedding is waiting. Not mine lar.
Calon2 gewe juga. Huahuahua.
Some of my favourite pearls of wisdom has been things like, (still taken to heart)
A Reason For Everything
Carpe Diem (Seize the day)
You’ve got to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was
Life without a friend is death without a witness
The good is not good when better is expected
Politeness is the art of choosing among your thoughts
There’s more than one way to skin a cat ← tika geram2
If you don’t stand for Something, you’ll fall for Anything
Reading surrounds us, labels us, defines us.
and many more. The strongest motivation of all is of course to believe that if you have God on your side, no one can take you down, nothing is too difficult and He will show you the way. ( This unfortunately doesn’t come to mind that often, usually quite late )
So, what gives you that spark? What sets you going?
