Words of Wisdom

Keep going

Sometimes I feel like I give up too easily. The minute I think I can't go any farther, I stop and retreat. Like at the gym for example. When I am on the treadmill running and my body starts getting tired, my mind loses all motivation and I reduce speed. I hate that. I feel like a failure. I don't want to lack motivation anymore.

A wise man once told me, "When life's opportunities open a door, go through it... no matter what." That wise man was my dad today. I got offered a second job position at the hospital in pediatrics. I am already working full time on the adult side of the hospital and now I have the opportunity to work over-time with little kiddos. I am super excited! But I have to be honest with you, the thought of working over 40 hours a week kind of freaks me out. I really like my free time but I desperately need the money.

I popped over to my dad's office to tell him the news and that was when he passed on those simple words of wisdom. It was like a light bulb went on. Why would I even think about not taking this job. It will greatly help me reach my career goals. I don't want to stop at "comfortable," I want to go above and beyond what I think I am capable of. Nine times out of ten I can keep going, a lot longer than I think I can't.

With that being said, I choose to exceed my own expectations. Bring it on life!

  1. You go girl!!! This is awesome. CONGRATS on the job opportunity :)) You're young, you're determined, you're fortunate. Take advantage of it all. And stay on that treadmill just another minute longer next time ;)
