    Hiiii :heart:

    Bonus tonight ! A little extra, not really intersting I think, so I wont tag anyone.
    It's about my mum. I feel like I want to write about this story, (actually I said something about it on an other thread and it made me think about it, whatever)
    So tonight, I'm writing for my mum. To show all the world how much I'm grateful for what she did for me.

    Mum, this is for you.

    Dear mum,

    You always had this dream of helping others, it's amazing, so amazing I have no words. You wanted to be a doctor and you never told me. You lied to me about all of it. Almost during my whole life.
    Why did you do that ?
    You did it to make me build my own dream. Here's what you did mum.
    At 22 you were eligible for the best med school of whole France. You were happy, on the road to your dream.
    You get pregnant.

    You dropped out one month later, you planned to come back after the birth. You gave birth to a lovely unicorn at your med school's hospital. But lovely unicorn had health's problems at the moment, she almost died. You cried, and you decided that she would become your only dream.
    You never came back to your school, just to raise her.

    You never became a doctor, but you became a wonderful and important woman anyway.Little unicorn grew up. Little unicorn discovered how much hospital was fascinating at 12.

    You never told little unicorn about you being at med school when you were younger. You let little unicorn found her own path.Little unicorn turned 18.

    Little unicorn applied to the best med school of whole France. You didn't say anything. To make sure it was her own decision. You let her do.
    Little unicorn was eligible.

    What did you do mum ?

    You called little unicorn in your room. You opened your wardrobe. You shown your blouse, with your name printed on it, just under "hôpitaux de Paris" (Paris hospitals). You told all the story to little unicorn. Little unicorn was shocked. She didn't know.
    She felt guilty. She thought her mum was not a doctor because of her. Little unicorn was confused. But her mum told her not to worry.
    Her mum told her that she was happy her little unicorn was alive. Little unicorn was thankful for having such a wonderful mum. Little unicorn kept the blouse.


    Little unicorn failed.


    Little unicorn cried. Little unicorn told her mum "I wanna be a doctor".
    Her mum asked "why ?"
    Little unicorn said "to help people"
    Her mum told "good answer. You'll be who you want to be"

    Little unicorn dropped out uni. Little unicorn applied abroad. Her mum was sad to let her go. But she never been so happy of her whole life.

    Dear mum, all your life, you wanted me to follow my own dream.
    Mum, I'll do it. I promise.

    Dear mum, I love you.

    Your little unicorn.

    By the way, it's "You didn't say anything" not "You didn't say nothing."
    Awwwwwe Unicorn!!! I love this post so much! It's really lovely you decided to do it about your mum and this was so inspirational! I'll always remember this heartwarming post. I'm glad you found out about your mum's past at med school and are eager to follow your own dream. It's so emotional too! :hugs:

    Your so inspirational and honestly I've loved reading your blog, just hit the subscribe button. Medicine isn't easy and it's a job that is required around the world and to do it, you need a kind hearted personality which I'm sure you have. It's really interesting to know the French educational system because in the UK it's so different.

    Thank you and no problem at all. I've had a read of the French medical schools compared to the UK ones, I think I'd be awful because my French is very basic. I've tried to learn it but never have the time. How do you keep on top of everything?

    Working in UK ? Why not, actually I applied for some med schools there but was not eligible as I already failed in France (too bad considering that they found my profile intersting) but it's okay UK was not my first choice ^.^
    I wanna go to Prague to study, I'll do 6 years there, then I could continue wherever I want in the world, I'm thinking about USA, but I have time to decide anyway
    And I never been to UK before lol ! I'll come for the first time in July :lol:

    Aw. I'd love to go to France but I don't know which part of France. Prague seems really cool, never been but I'd love to one day. The problem with the UK is that the pictures never do the place justice, some places are horrible and quite run down but some places are stunning. I considered studying in the USA but I don't know anymore, not really my goal.

    If you can come to Paris, go ahead, because the city is truly amazing *O*
    Aw really ? I didn't know about that :lol: I suppose every place has "up and down"

    I see ^-^ you have still time left to think about it, I wish you the best with all of it !! :hugs:
