One wise man told us: “We don’t make mistakes, we get better.” No one is perfect, we do and say stupid things, sometimes we find the courage to finally speak up but unfortunately we are wrong, sometimes we mess up so many times in a row that it feels really awkward... But don’t make this experience destroy you. Take a lesson, forgive yourself and move on. Torturing yourself doesn’t make you grow, it only sucks the energy out of you and keeps you out of any progress.
So next time you ‘screw up’, take a few deep breaths and keep going. We get better 🙌🏼
🏆Focus on the GOLD 🏆
Ignore the dirt...it's not worth your valuable time! .
🏆Staying focused on the positive is so important no matter what industry you are in. This is a wealthy and healthy mindset that will help propel you forwards in your destiny!
🏆When the challenges, obstacles, or unexpected catastrophes come your way, stay grounded and focused by going back to your values, passion & purpose ----> get around those that celebrate you & your purpose -----> keep moving forwards.
🏆 Don't be derailed by the time robbers and naysayers. .
🏆It's not your job to fix them or figure them out. You can't be everything to everyone and there's always someone or something that will try to oppose what you were made for! .
🏆See it, forgive it, learn from it, but don't stay stuck dwelling on it.
🏆Let it go, draw your boundaries and move on believing the best in what you set your heart and hands to!! YOU ARE A TREASURE...GO SHINE!! 💥💥💥 #vidavisionkeys#vivalavidasuccess#claudiasantiago

This is something that I had to tell myself over and over again to be able to continue my journey to medicine. Whether it was my premed advisors, fellow classmates, or even those who didn’t wish to know me more than my numbers on why I chose medicine, I decided that they were not the ones who would decide for me my future. Yes, I have to be realistic with my situation and find proper solutions on how to fix it, but many people think that’s the end. If someone says I can’t do it, then I really shouldn’t do it. But what about what you think? Your stats, your experiences, all of that can be improved. But what about your passion? If you truly feel that this is not for you because of your views on medicine, then that is your decision. Don’t let numbers define your passion, numbers can change if you work to find solutions on how to. Your passion, your genuine feelings towards what you want to do should not be overlooked because someone said you’re in numbers or experience. The one thing I have really come to love about the med community is that those who wish to inspire others ask about how they feel about medicine, and not focus on how their numbers look. I think it’s because they know that in the end what matters is how you feel inside about what you are pursuing. Your work ethics will follow. Think about this next time someone tells you to give up on your dreams. •
Wellness Retreat Day 15/21 is going well! 👌🏻Woke up early for yoga and meditation, had fruit for breakfast, and now check out this delicious lunch! Asian cabbage salad and miso soup. We (well, not me, Kevin...you know he’s the chef around here 😂) has figured out how to make the miso soup so it has a bit more flavor. 👏🏻 And the salad is something I would have never thought to make, but would totally do again. Can not believe I have already lost 6lbs eating so much good food! ❤️
"The point of the corn maze is not to get caught."- my goofy boyfriend😀
So much fun yesterday playing tag with him in the maze after another 28 hours of call! (Please, let's never grow up!👌👍)
So grateful to have a boyfriend who would come visit me Friday night after his work even when he knew I would be working 28 hours (Saturday to Sunday), because we're both starting night float next month and won't have much time to see each other. And he held my hand all through when I was sleeping on our drive to Dawsonville.
Hi, as we moved back to home I came to my usual study hub today, yes UCSB library. I am starting my step 2ck prep from now on...I learnt a lot during studying for step1 about how/where/when I can focus and learn better so there won't be those mistakes this time. Have productive days everybody☺️
Ps:If you like me to share my experiences pls mention at comments section, I dont wanna bore you with things you don't enjoy.

Sorry not sorry. ❌ Really though, I say sorry way too much. And, if you’re a girl, you likely do too. It’s kind of the way that society conditions us to be. Women apologize more than men (we feel guilty about so many things!)—its a documented fact, but it doesn’t work in our favor much. Apologizing can be a good thing when it’s necessary. It shows that you’re empathetic and you have strong interpersonal skills, but you want to be careful not to overuse apologies. When you start a statement with ‘ Sorry, but…’ or ‘I may be wrong but…’ you may think you’re being polite but really you’re undermining what you’re about to say. That language suggests that you don’t feel confident about what you’re saying or about your right to say it. Do you apologize too much? Let’s change that!
Here are some tips to help you avoid over-apologizing:
✅ Don’t apologize for things that are not your fault, not in your control, or otherwise unworthy of an apology. (for example, dont apologize for being over sensitive, for bumping into someone etc). I know you feel guilty often, but your guilt should not always translate into an apology.
✅ Say ‘thank you’ instead. When your partner does your dishes for you, rather than apologizing for not having done them yourself, express your gratitude. ( if you apologize in this circumstance, the other person is burdened by having to reassure you.)
✅ Save it. Saying sorry too much can trivialize the act of apologizing, making the important apologies carry less weight. ✅ Embrace your imperfections. Don’t apologize for spilling coffee on your shirt, for having a bad hair day or for needing to ask more questions to understand a concept being discussed. .

Starting over from a different centre. I'm putting my skate on for the first time in over 12 years to "skate" for real not just aimlessly wandering around doing the odd edge.
It's going to hurt. I already know it but it's time to fully heal and integrate this huge part of me back into my body and life. Wish me luck, I'm probably going to fall. 😂⛸💗#aligningmedicinewithsoul
I didn’t get much at the grocery store yesterday because it’s moving week (!!) but this #groceryhaul from last week was a good one. It had everything I needed to make my yummy chopped veggie and kidney bean salad plus a few snacks too. 😋 Ps, excuse the mess because we’re moving! #glutenfree#vegetarian#cleaneating#mostly ☺️
I’ve taken the past few weeks off social media for a well deserved break. That, and I was forced to, dealing with a chronic illness is not one bit enjoyable.
I’ve tried my best to stay upbeat, to keep my head over water and powering through my day as best I can but I’m not going to lie - at times it has been really tough. I’ve been surrounding myself with the things and people I love, and surprisingly, one of those things is study 😂 I never ever thought I would say that I missed studying for the GAMSAT! Of course, I’ve missed you guys and this amazing community also.
I took the exciting step of going to my first open days for medical school (in anticipation of those results in November) and have been blown away by the quality of teaching, facilities and research coming out of a small country such as Ireland. Some of our school are international trailblazers for medical education and I am so excited by the thought of studying here.
One book I’ve loved lately is “Principles” by Ray Dalio. #raydalio#principles
Some might not be aware but I come from a finance background. This book is full of distinctions and insights and I would recommend it to everyone, while not technically a #medread it’s relevant to all, especially those who are ambitious and striving towards your own goals and successes.
Unfortunately I am still holed up dealing with my recovery, so let me know if you have any book suggestions for me! I’m going to try and review some properly soon, and use my idle time for some good. Missed you guys ❤️
And we're back to long days in the OR🤗! I've been on labor & delivery for so long and as much as I love it I sure did miss operating! Busy day today, but I started with an early morning workout and I've felt energized all day. Now let's see if I can keep this up😝. #happymonday#mondaygrind
😫👉🏼🤔👉🏼😊: Last night, I had a moment where I felt overwhelmed by the amount of info needed to be covered. I removed myself from my desk, put some calm music on while pacing around, and after feeling less anxious, came back to it. "There has to be a better way to digest all this mambo-jumbo", I thought to myself. And then came First Aid to the rescue. As mentioned in my previous posts, I'm not a huge fan of the First Aid as a primary source of info, I rely heavily on my other texts and notes for clarification of concepts. So when I opened the FA, I felt a wave of relief wash over me and for the first time in my life had some feelings of gratitude grow for my FA. Lol Now I'm talking about microbiology here, and I always had a hard time remembering this species, that stain, etc etc. (conclusion of story coming soon, hang in there 😜) FA had algorithms for the different bacterias and it was so much easier to visualize it as a unit, rather than individual bugs. And then, I planned on how to tackle the info, simply by dividing and conquering. ✨Moral of my story is that: When feeling anxious about anything, whether studying or personal issues, remove yourself from the source of the stress first. Second, distract yourself for a bit until that feeling disappears. Third, with a clear mind approach the problem, and try to see it as a collective whole first. Then, break it down and see how you can solve it slowly and in an organized fashion. 😊
Many attendings have asked me what field I want to go into. I tell them I'm keeping an open mind as I rotate around this year, but if I have to pick one specialty right now I would say I'm most interested in Pediatrics 👶🏻 And then they would respond with something like, "Oh so you don't want money." This angers me. It's never been about the money. I haven't been emotionally, mentally, and physically beaten down through med school because I want a high salary in the future. I'm in this because my heart is in it. I want to help others and I think that I will be happiest interacting with kids (and parents). I want to give them stickers and ask them about their favorite cartoons. But who knows, maybe I'll fall in love with Surgery or Family Medicine 🤷🏻♀️ A little less than a year from now I'll know which field I'll pursue, so follow me on my journey guys 🙌🏼
Meet my lil nephew Paul. This is him hearing the lub dub heart sounds for the first time ❤️ One good thing about this nomad life is that I get to live with him for a couple of weeks (to be closer to the hospital). It's been a blast being his soccer mom, helping him with homework, and messing with his legos. All of his relatives are in Thailand and I'm happy to have become like his older sister. Kids like him take such joy in the littlest things and are filled with such curiosity. We should do the same 😁

💥Motivation Monday💥Getting back into the swing of things can be hard, especially after a weekend! 💕 This quote reminds me of when I applied to medical school and where I am now..Time has flown! If you want to reach your dream, get it….go for it…🙌🏼...I applied to med school thinking I want to do this and I don’t want to look back and say “I wish I ______" …Work hard, and you’ll get your goal!!! Also, it’s flu season 🤧 and lucky lucky me got it! [Send me tea & cookies to 123 IGotTheFlu St., Canada haha] 🤒
35 never looked so good! 😎
Well it’s here. It’s my birthday... and I’m not freaked out anymore! I’m looking forward to an amazing year and smashing my goals. I’m so thankful for everything in my life and especially all of YOU! I read all of your DMs and I really appreciate the love you guys show me! We all have tough days and you guys help me get through mine.
Time to slay! There’s never been a better Monday! 🤗💕🎉🎈🎁
What are you looking forward to slaying this week?
Very exciting things on this Monday morning... 😒 but actually it’s not that bad. Pharm is fascinating, if only I could keep it all organized in my brain 😅 cheers to Monday and a fresh start and a new week!
Sometimes you spend more of your “free time” (if that even exists in med school) sleeping and spending time with people you love, over meal prepping. Mental health is JUST as important as physical health... but I want both sooo 🤷🏽♀️😉

CAPT Maureen Farrell is the program director for the obstetrics/gynecology residency at Naval Medical Center San Diego. She is pictured with her family on the day she pinned on O-6.
When asked to name her greatest accomplishment, CAPT Farrell said, "I would say that what I am most proud of is my family. I have an incredibly dedicated husband who has always picked up the slack with our family so that I could have the flexibility to do what was best for my career and now my residents. My children are also very understanding and have a mature perspective- sometimes even though I want to be with them, others need me." CAPT Farrell, your dedication to your family, your patients, and your residents is an inspiration to us all!
