While majority of Filipinos are snoring in bed or worse ... infusing their pillows with saliva (hehehe), I'm doing some soul-searching. I've been doing this for the past 3 days or so. I wonder why. Maybe it comes with the age. This is the hard thing about being a doctor. While your high school mates are earning enough money to support the nests they can call their own, you realize that you haven't left your Mom's nest for the simple reason that you're still not capable of building a nest of your own. Your friends have already made a name for themselves. As for you, the unlicensed doctor, who still remains anonymous, save for your fellow unlicensed colleagues, carving out a niche in your profession is not within your grasp yet ... Where am I headed? Honestly, I still dunno. If there's one thing I learned from this aging process, it's to go where the wind takes you. Don't resist. Just do your best. Be brave enough to face your future. Carpe diem. Hakuna matata. Samtosa. Live by your principles. Don't lose hope. Keep the faith. Bury your past 'coz you can't do anything about it. Invest in your future. I believe that there's someone out there who guides us in everything we do. We just have to put our full trust in Him. I'm not afraid to grow old...

Hey!!! I object! I don't "infuse" my pillows with my saliva... not intentionally anyway... Hahahaha. I think it is admirable that you are positive in spite of everything that has happened in your life. Do your best, and never forget that there will always be friends beside you every step of the way.

I guess it is natural to be apprehensive of the unknown and the unsure. But I think we should all not be afraid to grow old. It is a fact of life. All we can do is make the best out of the time that is given to us. Maktub! :)

Exactly. Anxiety is conquered by the brave and the hopeful. Eventually, life starts tasting like vanilla. :-)
