I was sitting at the local Starbucks doing homework as usual when my high school German teacher walked up to me and gave me a hug. She was always one of my favorite teachers and just a really sweet, loving lady. She told me about how she only had a few more semesters of school to finish her nursing degree and we talked about how much fun going to school really is at the end of the day.
This weekend, I was researching graduate programs because that's my hobby these days. All of a sudden, I found myself researching medical school pre requisites. Now, I know what you're thinking. Doctor?! Where did that come from?! Well, I come from a family of doctors. My parents, my maternal grandparents, my aunts and uncles. It's what I've grown up around and although I've seen the ugly side of it, I've seen the amazing things doctors do and from when I was little, it was always a future goal for me to become one. Eventually, I found other interests as well and although medicine still interested me, I kind of just decided to explore other paths. Now, I'm not saying I'm now on the path to medical school but it's something that has always been in the back of my mind and today, when I ran into my former teacher, like often happens to me when I run into people from my past that are just plain kind and endearing, I felt that feeling of motivation. I'm starting to think it's how God speaks to me because I always come out of each of those conversations feeling inspired to be a better person. I'm someone who has always loved working with people and as I'm finishing school, that passion for doing good in an extraordinary way is really resonating with me. I know I was put here to do something bigger than I can imagine and I feel so ready to step into that.
Sorry for the novel on a Monday!
Hope your Monday is going well!
