A True Story

Once upon a time I wanted to be a healer. I studied diligently, got into a good med school and studied there for four years. When I was just one year away from obtaining my degree, I got married because my father had found a good match for me and I took his advice, put my Studies on hold and get married.

I never completed my course and instead became a mom to three brilliant children. All are now successful in their lives and are wonderful parents.

The purpose of this story is to express my gratitude to my late father who was instrumental in my marriage and found a perfect match for me. Right now I could’ve been a doctor but instead I was a stay at home mom, looked after my family, treated their illnesses, and earned the gratitude of my family and friends for giving them the right advice at the right time concerning medical issues.

What life holds in store for us, we can never tell but whatever happened in my life was best for me!

    1. Thanks Willow. I’ve always believed that everything happens for a reason. And long time ago, I’ve decided not to regret any decisions I took regarding my life.


  2. I just had exactly this same conversation with someone about MY life. I was going to go to medical school, found out I was pregnant, didn’t pursue that, had 8 children, and now can’t imagine how my life would have looked if I had pursued a career instead of a family. Great post.
