    My Mantra: everything happens for a reason and everything is in God's hand... since there are things that are beyond our control, it's easier for me to accept both negative and positive things!

    "If not me, then who..." 1st Lt. Travis Manion, USMC

    I heard this over the summer while on staff with a youth baseball leadership camp at the Naval Academy and I feel it applies to many aspects of the profession - the 'shortage', patient care / advocacy, etc. This was also the closing line of my personal statement essay in my application.

    hakuna matata
    and

    Smile though your heart is aching
    Smile even though it's breaking.
    When there are clouds in the sky
    you'll get by.
    If you smile through your fear and sorrow
    Smile and maybe tomorrow
    You'll see the sun come shining through
    For you.
    Light up your face with gladness,
    Hide every trace of sadness.
    Although a tear may be ever so near
    That's the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what's the use of crying.
    You'll find that life is still worthwhile-
    If you just smile

    If that is too small to read, one of my favorite mantras is
    "ATTITUDE IS 90% of EVERYTHING!!"


    Others favorites include great quotes about perservance.

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