Today's voices.

A post from my personal blog: Just Believe.
Dated 4th September 2012.

Rachel wrote a beautiful post (HERE) that totally resonates with my thought about Disney. I love it the moment I got to know about it.

It was magical to be drawn into the world of fairy tales and princesses when I was young. Well, every girl dreams to be princess. Now that I'm older, and perhaps to some, a little too childish to love Disney, I'm still gonna love Disney anyway. (There's a child in every adult.) (: Somehow, it makes me happy, serves as a source of motivation to keep me going, and reminds me of the little girl who believes that dreams do come true.

There goes the part-time dreamer, and now, back to reality. I was attached to a Colorectal Hospital Clinic today. Watching how the Medical Officer (MO) treating the patients made me ponder about the attitude of young doctors today. Many failed to explain the underlying problem of a disease the patient has, either because they are too busy clearing off the countless patients they have to attend to in a day or they simply think that its hard to communicate to the patient due to language barrier. You can't let an obstacle be an excuse, would you, especially when a patient place his/her faith and trust in you to treat him/her? When one first choose this profession, or any other professions, one should have realised the hardships the profession offers, and try one's best to tackle it wisely.

In the ward, I try my best to listen to the patients, to make out every word they say and be patient with them. Yes, I'd be lying if I say I was never annoyed with them especially when I'm tired, groggy or when some situation arises. I'm still a human. There are times when the mood swings just pops by and messes up with my mind. I tend to feel grouchy at times. I could be the happiest person in the world for a second, laughing crazily for another second, being dramatic for a quarter second and the next moment, standing at a point looking like a lost puppy, doubting myself and the future, feeling like an emotional freak in a circus. Diagnose me with a histrionic personality disorder and I'll just shove you off. LOL just kidding! (I haven't done my psychiatry posting and am like a newborn baby in this specialty.)

These emotions or mood swings introduce us to Fear, an abstract element that lead to self-doubt, then the lack of confidence and change in our perception and finally neglecting our duties. It's through all the itsy-bitsy ups and downs, that I gained experience and kept reminding myself to NEVER EVER fall prey to Fear and doubt my confidence, to accept the situation and move on, and find an alternative to any impasse-like situation I come by. 

"Somehow I can't believe there are any heights that can't be scaled by a man who knows the secret of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C's. They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy and the greatest of these is Confidence. When you believe a thing, believe it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably." ~Walt Disney

And hence the title of this blog - Just Believe
To breath.
To have faith, hope, love and trust.
To dare to dream.
And to live with sunshine, smiles and laughters.
