Words of Encouragement


I am not much of a talker I prefer to listen. I am firm believer that less is more. I am quite the shy person but I would like to share some words of encourgement to my fellow physicians to be. Hoping these words can be uplifting to everyone who comes across this wonderful site.

Don’t give Up!

Your Dreams May Be Closer

Than You Think!

There may be times when you feel

as if you have taken a million steps towards

your dreams, and acted on your plans, only to find

yourself in the same place that you began from.

At times like this, you must not give up.

You must continue on. Though you may feel

lost, bewildered, and alone, continue to believe

in yourself. Do not allow discouragement and

doubt to blur your vision and wash away

your dreams. Visualize your way beyond the

detours, standstills, and obstacles.

You will realize your dreams. You have

worked hard and taken so many productive

steps in a positive direction that you are bound

to succeed. Whatever the hurt of the moment

may be, it will pass. Tomorrow is always a

new dawn. Today, you must pause, rest, catch

your breath, and then look ahead. Each step

will bring you closer to your dreams. The

rainbows and the love that you deserve are in

sight. Happiness is just around the next turn.


This is lovely! thank you!!

I had a wonderful uncle who passed away several years ago from ALS who went to seminary school in his 40’s after his wife passed away and his children were grown.

My Uncle was a terrible golfer but he used to play all the time anyway and he would say to my father “Just advance the ball”. My father reminds me of this every time I call stressed out about the next exam or wondering if I am wasting time and money chasing dreams.

Sometimes we need little bits of wisdom like this to keep putting one foot in front of the other!!

I am always reminded of the story of a parish pastor in London who was sent to give news of a woman’s son’s death in WW II. It was tea time. She answered the door, and in an instant, knew what was happening. She invited the pastor in and said “Excuse me, I need to put the kettle on.” She then returned and he told her what he needed to tell her. He asked, “Why did you stop me and continue to put the kettle on?” She replied, " In the gravest of moments, you must continue to do whatever you were going to do to begin with."

Mallory is right. One foot in front of the other. Thank you Dr.D.Heart!
