Revive Your Passion for Nursing

4. Have Faith.

Kids have the faith to believe that after they skin their knee on the sidewalk, a kiss from Mom can heal all wounds. When Dad tells them that babies come from storks, who are they to question his all-knowing well of knowledge? Children are eager to believe, but as we grow older, that belief commonly turns into cynicism.

Sometimes you have one of those days where everything seems to go wrong and nothing makes sense. Questions bubble up to the surface and doubts cloud your mind. Maybe you want to throw in the towel. On days like this, take a deep breath. Make a commitment to give it one more day. Just one. When I have the Worst Day Ever—when things look bleak and all hope is lost—and I decide that I will keep going for one more day, it’s amazing how things always seem a little bit better the next day. Dust off that childlike faith, and have the courage to believe that everything always works out for the best. It’s not so far-fetched, after all. Because you know what? It does.
