I don’t know about y’all, but I have been having a rough time maintaining my motivation this semester. I’ve been feeling an increasing amount of stress, and it’s been harder to manage than it normally is.
I’m writing this blog post because I’m sure that I’m not the only one who feels like this sometimes.
I want you to know that you’re not alone in this.
It is OKAY to admit that you get overwhelmed sometimes.
It is OKAY to admit that you are exhausted sometimes.
It is OKAY to be unmotivated sometimes.
It is OKAY to want to give up sometimes.
We all go through times when we feel that we can’t handle any more stress or work put on us. There is nothing wrong with you.
When you go through these times, think about why you put yourself into the situation that you are in. For example, when Pharmacy School gets overwhelming, I try to remember the reasons that I’m here. My passion is helping people. I’ve been on this path since I was 12 years old. This is what I have always wanted. I LOVE my profession. Those are the reasons that I’m in this profession. That is why I’m in school. If I keep these motivations in the forefront of my mind, it’s easier to get back to work and focus on what I need to do.
What is it that gets you up in the morning? What is it that motivates you? Try to bring that to the forefront of your mind.
And when in doubt…
You’ve got this!
