About the Blog & Me

What this blog is all about

This is the reality: It’s hard to work a job that requires you to be be there 60-80 hours a week. It’s easy to let your job take over your whole life and then you end up bringing home a negative attitude. It’s hard to keep your life balanced if half of your brain is preoccupied with what is going on at work. Soon you realize that you have missed out on so many parts of your life just because you were not completely there (body AND mind) in the moment.

Being a busy woman is difficult. I’ve slowly learned (and am still learning) that in order to keep yourself sane and most importantly, happy, you have to hold a couple focuses in your life in high regards.

Because to be happy means you will truly be in the present.

The first thing that usually jumps to people’s minds when I ask what are your focuses in life are family and friends. While that is also true for me, I find that I live a better life if I choose different areas/interests in life to put my energy into but do them with my family and friends. I personally think it builds relationships and creates lasting experiences.

I’m hoping my blog will allow me to share how I walk through life and be fully present within the moment despite working busy hours.

My hope is that my readers will walk away from my ramblings with another way to view life, another way to live life as a busy person, another reason to travel, appreciation of the little things, or just with a little hope or light in a world that can be quite cruel.

Little Things

Why is little things the focus of your blog? First of all, for you to understand this, you have to know what a little thing is. I always describe it as small things or moments or feelings that happen throughout your day that makes your day better, but you may not consciously recognize it.

This has become a very important part of my life because I use it as a daily exercise. I find that we live in a fast paced world and by the end of the day, many of us focus on what went wrong – we fixate on it. This is my way of re-grounding myself at the end of the day and focusing (as cheesy as it sounds) on what went right. I collect them in a list hoping that they will provide others the same amount of happiness as it provides me, or at least hoping that it will just produce a smile.

About Me

I’m currently an OB/GYN resident searching for the little things day to day and learning from my family, friends, teachers, and patients. I also spenProcessed with VSCO with c1 presetd a good deal of my time outside medicine on travel and food. Besides blogging, I write a lot of poetry and fiction that as of now, mostly remains hidden from public view. I’m a bookworm at heart, and when I have time to spare, I bake and attempt home decor DIY projects.

My aspirations include becoming the most compassionate OB/GYN I can be, being involved in global health, initiating new public health projects to close health and educational gaps in the community, publish a book (or more!), travel the world, and be the best daughter, sister, and friend I can be.

Cheers,

-Monica
