I am officially coming to the end of my first semester of nursing school. It is a slightly frightening thought that we are done with that much content, but in the same right it is exciting. It crazy to think this time next year I will be nearing the end of practicum and about to emabrk on my life beyond school. Which then got me on to researching residency programs and what is to come next?! So far I have been researching programs on the east coast. Lord knows I have some crazy ideas in my head, lets hope I can translate them to life : ) At this point in my life many of my friends have been or are going through some of those big transitions that are uncomfortable and unknown. I know one in my life is not that far behind. But the unknown is scary. I found this quote, and I feel like many people right now can relate. It is from one of my favorite people, Eleanor Roosevelt. I hope you enjoy it:
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams... You gain the strength, courage, and confidence by every experience by which you really stop and look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this. I can take the next thing that comes along."
