Stop making excuses

This is a pep talk to myself (It’s only crazy if you answer yourself…right?). Currently I am a RN. My specialties are ER and ICU, I’ve seen a lot and learned even more. I am grateful to have a job others aspire to be, but becoming a doctor has always been my goal. Medicine will forever be my passion but somewhere along the way I lost my drive. I’ve been through multiple rejections and disappointments with this process. It got to a point where my family and friends believed in me more than I believed in myself. I know I’ll excel in medical school, that’s not the issue. The issue for me has been getting in. Rejection is never a good feeling. So I became stagnant, avoiding anything to do with medicine. But no matter how hard I tried that love for medicine never went away. And it’s funny, more often times than not my patients would make suggestions of me going on to be a MD. When you’ve lost your way, God will even send strangers to keep you on your path. Everyone needs encouragement, even if you have to do it yourself. So Brittney stop making excuses and get back to it. It’s when you face opposition that you know you’re headed in the right direction, that’s the enemy trying to deter you from your destiny. So don’t give him the satisfaction, keep it moving. So you didn’t get into that school, get over it! That just means God has something greater in store. Don’t let that fear keep you from moving forward. “For God didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control.”– 2 Timothy 1:7 We all have something we need to overcome. For me it’s coming to grips with my reality. I’m not getting any closer to my goal by sulking. Time to make moves.  Watch me work 😏
