    Congratulations Class of 2018

    Congratulations Class of 2018

    This past Friday, I gave my first commencement speech to the graduates of the American Institute of Alternative Medicine.  The graduates included Acupuncturists, Massage Therapists, Practical Nurses and Registered Nurses. When I was invited to speak, I was instructed to be inspiring and keep it short. I immediately thought about the book, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I know I have talked about this book on previous blogs when dealing with stress at work and keeping peace in the world, but I believe that it is apt for those graduating whether it is from high school, college, graduate school, etc.

    The four agreements are*:


    Words are powerful – the words that you use on others, but most importantly the words that you use on yourself. When you look into the mirror, what are you telling yourself? Be positive.



    When you take things personally, it means that you think it is all about you. The reality is that anything said or done is about the person saying it or doing it. We must learn to accept criticism, the same as we accept praises. We can learn from both and it is best to say ‘thank you’ to both.



    We make assumptions when we are afraid to ask questions. Communication is very important. The world is diverse and we must be open-minded.  Be curious. ASK QUESTIONS.



    In order to do your best, you have got to be at your best. Being at your best, you have to exercise, get enough sleep, and be mindful of what you are eating. Doing your best also means being committed to being a life-long learner. What you have learned to get you where you are today is just the beginning. The world is constantly changing. What is up to date today may be out of date tomorrow. Be open to learning.

    Congratulations to the Class of 2018.

    May God guide you in the next chapter of your life.

    Secure Your Copy of Letters to My Sisters by Dr. Ngozi Osuagwu.

    The book discusses common gynecological and women’s health issues in a series of witty and entertaining letters. These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.

    The second half of the book briefly discusses the most common gynecological conditions and also provides an overview of sexually transmitted infections. A list of annotated websites dealing with the different topics in the book is provided for the reader who wants to pursue each subject in depth.
