A Sense of Direction

After many months of prayer and conversations with key friends and family, I finally feel like I know what my purpose is. Apparently one can never be too old to find this out (I’m 33 years old as I write this!). I have a sense of direction and God is continually answering my prayers. Truly God freely gives us His wisdom if we just ask for it!

I have been deliberating for years (9 years as we speak!) whether I should go to medical school or not. I have flip flopped about this decision a lot, with me doubting my abilities to succeed and being afraid of being away from family too much. I have had countless conversations with my husband about this and he has been very patient with my musings. He is behind me 100% in whatever path I choose. He has been my rock and I feel truly blessed to have him in my life.

I really feel God calling me to medicine, as I have for a long time. It scares the heck out of me, especially possibly relocating my family and all the hours I would be away from them if I embarked on this med school journey. But I have to trust that if this is what God wants me to do, He will give us the grace as a family to endure those challenging times.

So after many years of pondering (and many years working as a scientist in the pharmaceutical industry), I finally feel certain that a career change is in the works. I just still need some clarity on when this will be. In the meantime, I am scouring the internet and books, reading about other people`s experiences and learning from their challenges and successes. My husband is excited!! I am excited!! And I would like to share this unfolding journey with you! Stay tuned!

Welcome to my blog! I'm a married mother-of-two who is journeying through medical school. I share my life experiences and interests on this blog including my hobbies, recipes, fitness, faith, music and more! I also share my experiences in medical school and my attempts at balancing this with raising a family. It's a challenge but it can be done! Whatever you hope to achieve in this life, do not let circumstances or age stop you. There may be delays and disappointments along the way, but with time you will get there!
