The same faith that brought me through the MCAT, unemployment, a "failed" post-bacc, the MCAT again, employment, anatomy, the rest of first year and well into the second will see me through boards and beyond. The point of this post is less to recap my last few weeks or take a trip down memory lane, but to share for anyone who needs it that your life changes when your outlook does. Don't look at your next big challenge as an obstacle. See it as the opportunity. An opportunity to exceed expectations. An opportunity to push yourself beyond your limits. An opportunity for greater faith. When you don't know how you'll make it remember why you started and how you started. The process for whatever goals you have ahead won't be without it's challenges, without moments of fear or doubt; however, with the right attitude, diligence, consistency, self-care, and support you'll make it through just fine.
