We are rooted in medicine because of the reasons that attract us to this profession. These roots embark our journey; our fruitful expedition of aspiring to become physicians. This journey has lead us through education. The branches of education that is teaching us the fundamentals of medicine. Stemming off of these branches are the emotions we feel as we climb our way to the top. To get the top grades in these classes. To get the top information we need to absorb.

Do not be congested with the big picture. There are minute obstacles that we must surpass first. Your tree will only grow if you take a deep breath, and inhale the oxygen given off 🌬

Our diligence and will to succeed are the nutrients needed for our tree to flourish 🍂

May your roots stay powerful, and your branches stretch strong 🌳
