Day 21: Optometrist

I was in love with another career path, but to pursue it is like a utopian dream. It was a risk that I can’t afford to take. I told myself if it’s really love, then there’s always a way to make things work. I had to give up my first choice, my passion for music, to take up 6 years of studying a career only to die when they say “Optometrist, what is that?”. Nevertheless, I created that determination in me. I have developed a rare but valuable skill that only 53 of us passed the boards (2009). It is not comfortable at times but it is truly fulfilling, knowing that nothing great comes easy.
