The only thing that is predictable in life is that life is highly unpredictable! Holds true, right? Life is one big journey comprised of many little journeys. No matter where you are now, what you are doing, and what you have been up to, you must have faced moments of joy as well as moments of sadness, and these 2-sided experiences will continue to fill your future life as well.
One more thing that we can predict about your future, especially as an aspiring doctor, is that your life is going to be consistently challenging. You will face new challenges every now and then. Sometimes, you will need help while at other times, you will be in a position to help others.
The question is how can you live happily? Well, that’s quite simple – Help others whenever you can and when you need help, don’t shy away to ask for it. Remember, a life of mutual co-operation is much better than the life of flying solo! Reminds us of this: 1+1 ≠ 2. 1+1=11. Follow this equation of life for every situation you will be into, and you will win it with colors of joy.
Equation of life may be mathematically incorrect, but it’s more than correct, “lifely.”
