A day should not be over if we have not accomplished something on that day. It doesn’t have to be visible or something big to brag about. After a stressful court hearing which took me 3 hours, I started my morning rounds so late and ended up very late to arrive at my clinic. And as I examined my patients by turns, a beautiful lady mayor in her sixties was a bit irritated when I started to take her history and it took me 30 minutes before I gained her attention, but it was only after scolding me for not seeing her yesterday and queuing long at my very hot waiting room. As she was about to leave my room, she turned back to thank me for seeing her today with a comment that though she can afford to see other doctors in their place and here in the city, she still patiently waited for me. Sometimes, it’s not the comfort or convenience which keep the patient to see the doctor. It’s more of the rapport and trust knowing that others are probably brighter and are readily available.

When everything seemed to be falling apart and the only source of hope is a glimmer that is gradually fading on a lonely starless night, tossed by the tiny waves in the middle of the sea, far far away from the shore until it can no longer be seen by our naked eyes, a bright golden colored light will rise slowly from the East to bring some good news and hope to each and everyone. And for as long as the sun will continue to shine everyday, our chance of a better life will stay, knowing that after a heavy rain is a rainbow that adds color to a brighter tomorrow.
