Our definition of safety and security varies over time. Before, this feeling of safety emerges every time we receive a warm, tight hug. Now, it’s quite the opposite–safety can be seen within a six-foot distance. Over the course of a video call, I have come to realize moments where this sense of safety and security can be felt. It’s the response of the person on the other end of a jittery call when you ask, “Are you still there?” It’s seeing your child peacefully asleep in their room and lying in bed with your spouse after a long night’s work. It’s knowing that whenever you close your eyes during times of need, there will be a God that listens. It’s the voice of grace whispering in your ear, telling you that your life is still worth living. Truly, these are the experiences that ease the weight of worries and the troubles of torment, even momentarily. In fact, all of the aforementioned scenes are taken straight out of my conversation with Dr. Hayden Kho Jr.
As the current Managing Director of the Belo Medical Group, a licensed medical practitioner for more than a decade, and serving as a devout Christian for seven years, nothing else could define Hayden’s present-day self more than the sense of security. It’s the assurance of having his wife, Dr. Vicki Belo, by his side while working from home; the comfort of guiding his daughter, Scarlet Snow, through her early years of schooling; and the confidence in directing a team of like-minded leaders to thrust Belo Medical Group into a new age of medical aesthetics. In fact, I felt that same sense of certainty through his cheerful demeanor, the personal turns our conversation led us, and those sparks of bliss from brief intermissions by a curious Scarlet rummaging through her playthings.
But arriving at this point in his life has not been without its hardships–the weeping and gnashing of teeth from the trials and tribulations of personal struggles, media sensationalism, and the watchful public eye. Yet through it all, he has managed to build a stronghold of principles, founded on the four cornerstones of life he continuously preaches, and illuminated by the industry’s bright future he oh-so desires.
AND ON THIS ROCK
It’s surprising how a man who dedicates his craft to care for people’s external appearances undergoes a lot of internal renewals himself. Hayden’s most notable one just occurred at the onset of the last decade when he caught himself walking through the valley of darkness: “I didn’t know any more what was the purpose of my life. I had existential issues happening when I was 27 or 28, but the thing is, no one knew this because in front of the camera and in front of the people, I appeared stable and happy,” he recounts.
