About my dreams

The more I think about them, they are my ambitions rather than my dreams. My dream would be that I see myself being famous( used to, that is)- my name appears on books, publications, journal articles etc..,. But the one unfulfilled ambition that I have is to study for my Master’s degree in public health in a reputed ( read, Ivy League university) in the US. I nearly made it there, once in 2013 but didn’t quite get there. The flames of ambition have died down( a bit) but deep down I think they still lurk. Ever since my world turned upside down in June this year, I have tried to put thoughts about my studies back far away into the back horizon. I finally concluded that I would pursue the ambition in God’s time only and would not get frustrated over the time taken to reach there.

Last night, on a phone call from my husband’s home institution, the director told hubby that they were opening a new public health institute there and they wanted people with MPH degrees there. When hubby came to talk to me, he was all enthused. He wanted me to go ahead with my applications for the 2018 course. Who knew ? I was just waiting for a sign. I was determined to not apply to keep myself from disappointment.

I am now waiting to see how things unfold.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my site. You have an ambition to our eldest daughters career path, she a VP of Population Health at a large regional hospital. Follow your dreams, a supportive spouse is grand. I’ve been supported and continually encouraged by my wife of 53 years.


    1. I visited your blog following Mrs. Mehrling’s recent post of her visit to your home and the fun she had. She is a blogger who has come to take the place of a mother in my life and that of a close friend. I am glad you visited my blog too.
      I am nearly 50 and am trying to regain my life in the medical field after years of being out of it for various reasons. Temporarily there has been a setback but i hope with my spouse’s help, I can overcome it. WE have been married 26 years. I am so happy to hear of your happily married life of 53 years.
