The Journey to Becoming

Harmony Saunders, MD-PhD student, M1
I know we are all on the battleground, with our defenses up, fighting the battle of life in medical school.

Take a minute a breathe. Enjoy the environment around you, take each day, one at a time, and cherish your most precious resource; time. This should encourage all of us to be calm, yet mighty, and allow us to breathe before the next battle begins.
But hopefully we are all crossing a bridge and leaping forward into this new environment, full of new challenges ahead, and triumphs behind. I know it’s scary, but we are working on a new craft, just as the fishermen at sea, who work hard and built these ships by hand.
And one day, maybe we can be at peace with the work we have accomplished, remembering the investment, the sacrifice, and the support we had from those around us. Take a breath before your next challenge and remember, we are in the process of becoming, and that can be painful. In the end, we will become the product of our hard work and investment.
