Thank you for all the words of encouragement on Monday's post!
Today I wanted to share some quotes I've been loving lately. Is it just me or does the Pinterest Quote page just suck you in?!
I look back on my life a year ago and think how I was in the midst of taking nursing school prereqs, studying for the GRE and wondering where I would be in a year. Two years ago I would have never thought I'd be in Nursing School at UVA. But life has a funny way of working out. It's amazing to see how all the dots connect in life when we have no clue how they will during the process.
I actually stumbled across this quote on Ruthie's blog. Philip was only 23 years old, my age, and he was tragically killed in a car accident a few weeks ago. In his short time on Earth, Philip had accomplished much in this life and from the sound of it, was wise beyond his years. This was his last tweet and I think it's beautiful. So simple and sweet, but so powerful and meaningful.
Oprah doesn't need any explanation does she ;)
Is this an "Okay God I hear ya" moment or what?! Referring back to Monday's Post -- I know God has a purpose for my life and everything that is happening (or not happening) in it right now. I'm going to work on owning my own story and loving myself more (I think we can all do a little more of that anyway)!
Yesterday we had a Nurse Midwife come talk to us during our OB class and she read this quote to us.
She said that in order for us to be here [in Nursing School] we had to give up something from our past. Now we are in school to become Nurses, but we aren't quite there yet, we must be students first and that's the beginning step. We had to end something to begin this new step.
This can be put into any context for anyone, but the way she put it (and hopefully I didn't mess it up too badly) was just beautifully said.
A lot of times in life we have to end something to begin something new and while it maybe tough to start over or begin again, it can also be incredibly rewarding and life changing.
What's your favorite quotes and why?
