    Others favorites include great quotes about perservance.

    I personally believe, more than anything else,
    our own attitude, and our perseverance, matter most.

    OH, another one, i like, goes something like, "we rarely succeed at things we don't have fun doing."

    okay, maybe not so applicable to nursing, but, pursuing fun
    matters too.

    Mine is God never gives you more than you can handle.

    This is and all things are possible through him....... These have both proven true over and over again recently as God smacked me in my face to go back and finish school and keeps somehow making things work, days by day. Even when IM sure it's not going to. Everyday it does.

    My favorite saying comes from my old high school science teacher:

    "You can either sink or swim. No one is going to jump in and save you."

    My mantra: "There are no mistakes. This is all just a part of a journey that is not yet complete."
