Just some thoughts I’d like to share because I’m feeling quite poetic and I’d really like to share. Self-pity makes you feel worse. If you focus on what you have, then you will never be without. For all those hopeless romantics out there, you can’t hurry love. For every thing has its place in time. Patience is a virtue, and if you don’t have it, then you can certainly train your brain. It allows you to find peace within, so that whatever you have is enough. If you’re scared you’ll never find love, then don’t be. For good things come to those who wait. Love comes from within, that is, learning to love yourself first. Find your wings, and you will not need the wind to lift you up. Find your soul, and maybe you will touch others. For you are strong, and maybe you just need to find that long lost soul hidden under all the rubble and scars of past experiences and wishful thinking.
A simple message to those who need a winkle and a smile, followed by the words, “You can do it!” It’s midnight and I’m sitting in my study room, staring at a Physiology textbook called Molecular Biology of the Cell with a green highlighter and ruler placed on top of it. and I have one more set of study notes to make before my quiz tomorrow. I’ve realised that feeling prepared boosts my confidence in that moment when I walk into an exam room.
My advice: “Leave your nerves at the door, and don’t let it get the best of you.”
