This might sound daft, but after the roadblocks I've had so far, I need serious motivation to continue some days because I just get so disheartened every time something comes up.
When I moved to the states, I had almost graduated....almost... but long story short, I ended up losing all of my progress. I had to get the GED, ended up getting divorced, moved states, stuck in dead-end jobs until I was in a position to start school again... now I'm graduating 2 years later than planned (with all luck) because my current college's nursing program isn't so great, so I'm transferring to a different college to finish my BSN.
So on days where I just feel like a totalcrab, I watch documentaries.
I switch it up and some days I'll watch something on ED, maybe something on ICU, even med-surg, day-in-the-life type stuff. The grittier the better! And I tell myself that it's not going to be long and I'll be there, I'll be in my chosen field. Even if more roadblocks come up, I'll still make it.
For days that watching documentaries doesn't work... there's carrot cake, bubble baths, and wine
