Staying Positive// 8-6-2017

Happy Sunday! 


This week, and the upcoming weeks have done nothing less than give me terrible bouts of anxiety. With changing schedules, clinicals, personal priorities, money and appointments, I am a ball of brewing negativity- and it shows.


So, after realizing how I affect those around me, I'm changing my attitude.

I won't lie, it's difficult. I want to micromanage everything around me. When life doesn't go exactly how I planned, I slip into an abyss of complaints and stress.


But I realized: What good does that do? I'm only creating a negative environment for myself AND those I love. It's unhealthy- and it effects every aspect of life, from the way that I eat, to my grades and even my driving (I'm already a pretty terrible driver, at that!)


So anyways, this week's resolution is to change my outlook on my own life. To be grateful and show it, to stop complaining and instead, look for things to be thankful for. So far I have not been disappointed. God provides comfort in the most obvious of ways, if only we can stop and breathe for a moment to appreciate it. 




  • Nursing School & Studying.

    As a nursing student- there is hardly any time to do anything other than study, eat and sleep. You're lucky if you get to wash your hair as often as you should! Here are some rants & raves, tips and general observations in the pursuit of nursing.

  • Helpful Scripture & Thoughts

    God says "Be still"-
    There's always time to look at scripture and have some one on one time with Him.

  • Fitness & Health

    A tell-all of how fitness fits into the schedule of a full-time nursing student: What, how, when and why I do what I do to stay (somewhat) healthy-ish.
