well this will be my last entry here for a while I until I get my footing back, I have a lot on my plate. just trying to keep my head on straight, through a lot of mess.... If you have not watched the Ben Carson Story "Gifted Hands" to me it was very moving. I remember meeting him when I was about ten or eleven I think about the time his first book came out and he was doing tours. and he came to my elementary school... now it has been years since I heard he speak the first time, but I remember wondering around with my friends, but when his wife got up to play the violin, I remeber standing by the wall and listening and was just memorized..she plays beautifully and then Dr. Carson got up to speak..I was just moved by his story because it seemed just like mine and I still have things to accomplish, but I know I can do it..anyway after he spoke they were selling his book and I had to have a copy. My parents got me one and he signed it for me and I still have it. I have read his other three books and just inspired each time I read something about or watch something concerning him..For me every time I lose faith in what I am doing, my inspirations always show up. Each teach me about perseverance, trusting in God, discipline, trusting in God, just doing my best. So what inspires me.. well Dr. Carson for one, a motivational speaker who I also heard when I a teenager who took a long time to get his college degree, I even graduated before him. But now he is working on his doctorate and has his own church now even when people said he could not do it. I hope he puts his story in a book one day.. Then the movie Something the Lord made, just a great story..those are my three that keep in what I am in. well I hope all those who are starting on there new journey into medical school will cherish it, work hard, and don't forget yourself, exercise, play, and be grateful, because someone else could be in your spot.
