Never Give Up!

  2. A strong positive message can move mountains. What do you do to remind yourself to never give up? Is there someone in your life that's always there to pick you up? I believe that inspirational/motivational quotes are a great picker-upper ... especially, if read at the right time. Share your stories...

    I printed a quote that says 'Don't give up. The beginning is always the hardest' and 'I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it' in a fancy font and posted it on the wall in front of my desk to remind myself that everything I am doing right now is going to be worth it in the end and to keep me going when my hopes start to dwindle from stress and sadness whenever I'd see a failing grade when I was taking AP1. I even had those as my cover photo on facebook so I won't forget.

    My cousin who passed away was the reason why I began nursing in the first place.
    My beloved grandmother now joins him in giving me the strength to finish and continue in this great field. They will be forever in my heart and I promise to always give the best care I could give to those under my care. I really wanted for her to see me graduate. She talked about it all the time.

    My son is my drive and inspiration. I strive to succeed so that he may be offered opportunities that I wasn't. Any time I felt like I was about to lose it, I'd come home to my son and fiancee, and it was my serenity. I don't have any neat quotes, or verses that fuel me. But my flame burns as bright as any, and I know that I'm gonna do awesome!

    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
