I’ve been basically neglecting my blog for like weeks, and here I am came back with such a title- Second Chance. I sounded quite old lately, well I blame my inner self or part of my frontal lobe for leading me to this thought after attending the Joint Conference in HK.
How many of us will get a second chance in our life, this is especially imply in the most important thing in our life? I am really lucky to have always been given a second chance. There are no exact words to describe how grateful I am.
Life is always a bliss. There are ups and certainly there are downs as well. I don’t know where these weird feelings of mine came out today, perhaps it was my Student ID card which brought me to this deep thought. From 2008 until now, I have come from such a long way. From a know-nothing-and-weak junior until now a talkative (well, I’ve always been that, hehe) and crazy 3rd year medical student. Medical education is such a long journey, 5 years of education!!! In this long journey, most of us, AT LEAST will get lost in the journey once.
I remember how weak my inner strength was when I first stepped into my university. Even before casting my foot into the university, I’ve been through a rollercoaster-style of life. Tears and tears and tears filled my days when I thought that I may never get a seat into medical education. Later on in my first year of medicine, I lost in direction again. I almost forgot how hard it was to get into medical education and how much I wanted to be in it because something happened. It was quite a childish act of mine during that time in response to that “something”. I really appreciate my family efforts in coping the downside with me. One month later, I am able to walk over the obstacles. I’ve learnt a lot from it and I swear I never will go back to that pathway again. This is the first second chance that I’ve been given. Thank You Mom! Thank You Dad! Thank You Bro!
I’ve always use to think that there is a purpose in our everyday life. A task, a special task each and everyday given by God in order to access our living skills. Will we be able to learn from the past and handle things better on the next encounter? This is the key point.
Recently, I came across another same encounter. I wouldn’t want to shed more lights on which encounter it was 😀 Let it be an itchiness in your mind that you may never find out the exact location. Aha! It was again, a second “second chance” given to me. In fact, it was quite a challenge to me whether I am able to handle it perfectly from what I’ve learnt from the past. It’s almost the same situation as before, the only difference is it’s not the Tham that I used to be from the past.
After a thorough consideration and thinking, I would like to take down this task. I don’t know how well I will be able to handle it, but I will make sure I give my 100% of efforts. To able to remain rational and not being carried away is the objective of the task. I would like to tell you that, I will try my best to make it a success no matter how slim the chances are because we are all in this together 😀
Let the nature take its course. Future is too wide to be predicted. We will never know what is waiting ahead of us. The only thing we could do is to give our very best and live the present to the fullest. Never forget our responsibility to ourself, our parents and our loves one 😀
Thank You Very Much For The Second Chance!
