Excerpt Tour: Hope, Strength and Courage by Kathryn Lee

 


Hope, Strength and Courage: With Stories in Medicine Training and the Atypical Sibling Rivalry

by Kathryn Lee


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE: Autobiography - Medical and Family


~~~~~~~~~~~~~



This book has been a self-reflective journey of a medical doctor as an ordinary person going through ordinary life's ups and downs. In epistolary form, its articles were written during the special time of her first year of training to become a general practitioner/family physician, including making the tough decision to give up hospital specialist training, "withdrawing" from fast-paced hospital work, transitioning to working from a metropolitan hospital to a rural community clinic, witnessing and getting used to a younger sibling's growing up, and being independent from a close and loving family. Some also feature a promotion of the author's new academic career at the start of the COVID 19 pandemic and how it was perceived. The book shows a journey of love, strength, perseverance, purpose and encouragement. Lots of anecdotes, lots of stories, lots of quotes. With love and respect.

EXCERPT (Exclusive Excerpt):


Part of my experience in turning 30 years old is to finally realize there are people in this world who do not operate with kindness and sincerity. This is even more apparent since I moved to Melbourne. Melbourne is great, but some people are not. You probably recognized it some time ago since you have lived in Melbourne for longer than I.People are generally more indifferent, more competitive, and more self-focused compared to where we came from and lived for the past ten years. But whatever the circumstances, or however different people might be, we should not let it be an excuse to be mean, indifferent, and careless; instead, we ought to learn from Jesus and sprinkle love and kindness on those around us so we can be a blessing to this place, this world. Additionally, a nice phrase I learned today that I now share with you pretty much sums up my understanding of life at this point in mine: “We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.” This is by Aristotle Onassis, the famous ancient philosopher. Having gone through so much with family, you, and God, I have finally gathered enough courage to abandon my fears, anxiety and worries.
