The Biggest Obstacle

"Vicki, your biggest obstacle is going to be convincing people you're not crazy and that you actually know what you're talking about," Dr. A, my adviser in life, medicine and career (I guess that's just about everyhing, huh?).

Me: "I know"


  1. I sympathize with this.

    "Of course it is exhausting, having to reason all the time in a universe which wasn't meant to be reasonable."

    Kurt Vonnegut (Breakfast of Champions)

  2. few minds wear out. most rust out.

  3. I admire what you are doing and with passion (and good health) most people can achieve anything.

  4. Just a suggestion - put some adsense adds on your blog and the money you earn can go to your cause. ( I earn about $300.00 a year - not much but all things help)

  5. Thanks Good! And thanks so much for reading, I started thinking about adsense a little while ago, but I really don't know how to do it? (I'm slightly technologically impaired), but I'll figure it out for sure once finals are finished. Thanks for the heads up!

    And i9ub, I'm loving that quote, thank you!

    Rick, get back to studying :)

  6. There, this is much more fitting than "i9ub".

    I think you are headed in a great direction. I am just now finishing a class on, and business plan for, a cure research foundation. In this globally connected age of philanthropy, possibilities seem endless.

    A la prochaine fois.

  7. Hi Vicki, you are amazing from everything you told me and you really touched my soul:)

  8. Thanks Brendan! I agree, there are endless ways to help and heal our world; as long as we stay vigilant of our own egos, never become satisfied with our work, and stay motivated, who says we can't be the generation to heal the world?

    @Launna, thanks for the support! I love hearing feedback and I find your story equally inspiring.
