RIP Stephen Hawking.
Stephen Hawking graced this world with his intellect, persistence, and uplifted the human condition. It would have been so easy for him to have given up on his promising academic career when he was diagnosed with ALS. However, he continued working, and became one of most renowned physicists of all time.
I know with my last set of final exams coming up before clerkship, at points I have felt quite overwhelmed, especially when it comes to EKGs and interpreting ABG’s! But I find having perspective of your life events to be immensely therapeutic.
Take a moment to pause, and realize how absolutely blessed you and I are. We are healthy. We have a freaking supercomputer that can instantly jet this picture to any where in the world, in which you can get a wifi signal or have data. Our vision is intact to enjoy the beauty this world has to offer. Once you shift that perspective, I find it a lot easier to then refocus on what needs to be down RIGHT NOW, instead of the other million things it seems I have to do. #motivationalmonday
