1Jan 26, '13 by jenndavis"Here is the secret of inspiration: Tell yourself that thousands and tens of thousands of people, not very intelligent and certainly no more intelligent than the rest of us, have mastered problems as difficult as those that now baffle you." When I start feeling confused and frustrated this is what I tell myself.
0Jan 26, '13 by Blue Jam, ADN, RNI have two I use. One is "Just keep swimming" from Finding Nemo. The other is the song "Dig in Deep" off Tyketto's last album. When I find myself stumbling on a test, I hear the opening lyrics in my head: When you gonna get up that mountain / The one that stares you right in the face
In non-test times, it's the beginning of the chorus: Dig in deep / You can get up that mountain
0Jan 27, '13 by MAtoLVNI'm obsessed with "it's a beautiful day to save lives" -Grey's Anatomy. It reminds me that everyday is a great day to save someone whether its from illness or themselves. It reminds me to be the change I wish to see in the world.
0Jan 27, '13 by rubatoQuote from imintroubleI have my own version of this from running marathons. Running 26.2 miles is too overwhelming to think about, so I just kept telling myself "You can do anything for 10 minutes." or "You can do anything for 1 minute." Whatever I needed to tell myself at that moment of weakness."Stand up for what is right even if you're standing alone". I try.
My mantra at work: I can do anything for 12 hrs.
When I start nursing, it will be the same type of thing. "You can do this for the next 10 minutes" when I'm having a difficult patient or overwhelmed.

I do have the quote: "Be the change that you wish to see" as a favorite mantra as well

-Mary Anne Radmacher
My other one is that remember you ASKED to be here, you WANT to be a nurse, no one is making you. So when it's tough and you want to give up think of all the people that wish they could be in your place.

To draw an analogy: a man's suffering is similar to the behavior of gas. If a certain quantity of gas is pumped into an empty chamber, it will fill the chamber completely and evenly, no matter how big the chamber. Thus suffering completely fills the human soul and conscious mind, no matter whether the suffering is great or little. Therefore the "size" of human suffering is absolutely relative." Viktor Frankl.

Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.

I keep a running list of favorite quotes and maxims. I feel connected to the author and that in itself is some relief.Last edit by classicdame on Feb 1, '13 : Reason: edit
