Have you ever had one of those days where everything seemed to come crashing down over your ears? I certainly have had my share of these moments. My fall back position used to always reason in the end that, “I will try harder. I will work harder. I will pay more attention.” Finally, after years of neglect- I decided to take the help and advice from my grandmother, my parents, my uncles and aunts and my tribal elders. In addition, I have actually chosen to listen to the very suggestions and advice I pass onto to my family, friends, patients, to the not-so-nice people and complete strangers alike. Yet, on a day like today, I still relate to Boxer, the Horse in the epic novel, Animal Farm.
I will work harder.
