The Power of Prayer

I am graduate (shemay graduate na pala ako!) of Bachelor of Science in Nursing in De La Salle Health Sciences Institute . Along with my batchmates and the other students, the NLE has come and with only 5 days left to prepare.

Honestly I’m at my anxious stage. I feel like I haven’t really studied a lot and I think my difficulty parin talaga ako in terms sa base knowledge ko kasi nakakalimutan ko talaga. Pero feeling ko din kinain na ng sistema ang utak ko Lol. Hahaha.

Ano nga ba ang lalabas sa board exam? Yung nirereview ba namin, mahirap ba talaga pero bakit basic knowledge lang daw. Di’ba nakakalito. I also want to know yung mga feelings ng mga kapwa ko board exam taker. Kaway-kaway kasi baka magka-school pala tayo sa mga designated dates. Hindi na ako magsheshare ng madaming tips  kasi alam kong may kanya-kanya na tayong strategies pero just in case meron ba na katulad ko na parang sabog. Yung tipong hindi mo na alam kung babasahin mo ba lahat uli in just mere 5 days jusko. Parang gusto ko ng sumuko. Plus nahihirapan pa ako magfocus minsan so lalong patong-patong plus crammer pa ako (Goodluck to me). But But But to those na baka in the midst of losing their will to strive harder this remaining days I hope makatulong ako.

One of the things na nakakatuwa sa School, sa review center (R.A. GAPUZ) at classmates ko ay malakas talaga ang kapit kay Lord. What I mean is that, eventually if you’re not the “little bit of religious” type ng tao, mas makikita mo yung beauty ng prayer. Through prayers makaka-usap mo si God or marerelease mo lahat ng mga “Lord gusto ko po mag-TOP sa boards tulungan niyo po ako” and “Lord I need motivation, please give me more”. And alam mo yun, eventually darating ka rin sa point na like me, My prayer was my motivation now. Isinulat ko siya sa papel and everytime mawawala ako sa focus aalahanin ko lang siya.

In that prayer nakasulat kung ano lang ba talaga ang primary pangarap ko. Yung pangarap na nagpalipad ng puso ko.  Yung pangarap na nakikita ko yung sarili ko na nakangiti kahit hirap na hirap na ko. Yung PANGARAP NA HUGOT, malalim at alam mong nakakapag-pangiti ka ng iba. Di’ba gumaganon.  Yung pangarap na hindi mo pa nagagawa o nakakamtam pero feel na feel mo na so mapapa-work work work  work work ♫ ka talaga.  Yung tipong lahat ng bad vibes, kamalasan sa buhay mo, nakakapabadtrip, nakakapag-padown ng system mo lahat ng pwedeng mag-shake sayo will slowly or automatically shut down kasi you have the eye for the price. Kaloka kaya, the process habang nagrereview, alam mong nagsa-struggle ka kasi mabigat yung problema sa sarili mo kasi tamad na tamad ka na and sa iba, hindi pa nga tapos yung isa may isa pa. Sobrang salamat kay Lord kasi lumipas na siya at ngayon ang naiisip ko nalang at ang tangi ko nalang iisipin ay how to make the most out of everything I have.

Prayer and God + Preparation +  + Confidence ang the best formula, but ganito yung akin Prayer And God + Preparation (struggle > time) + Optimism (kayabangan > confidence). I find it funny too but I work the best with that formula. I know meron din kayo and lalung-lalo na sa mga katulad ko talaga na alam niyo naman na hindi madasalin pero deep inside alam mong nagdadasal ka and yung prayer sayo is something na ginagawa mo and hindi mo lang siya sinasabi. Find the best prayer that will work on you to not to or not just to make you Board Top Notchers or with the  100% passing rate but to inspire you to be more of a great Registered Nurse. Kasi sobrang Broad ng nursing, with the knowledge we have makakatulong ka na sa simpleng nasugatan and may sakit, lolo and lola mo and kinaiinisan mo. Pray to God na lahat ng inaaral mo ma-aaply mo, ma-eexplain mo ng maayos at makakapag-care ka kasi feeling ko dahil feelingera ako, yun yung basic knowledge na ibig sabihin this coming board exam. So Aja sa lahat ng magbo-board exam. Kapag nag-eenjoy ka naman wala namang mahirap lang kasi marami naman tayong basta masaya walang pake-alam kung too late, too many and too difficult. ☺

Sorry if hindi consistent yung thoughts, medyo sabog na writer ako hahaha. Love you all.

10 Tips to Resist Procrastination

First: Never Plan 


It never happens anyway, naturally. So just do what you can for the time being without thinking whether it’s a rush or not.

get over

Second: Alternatives

Yes, I said no plans but set deadlines. It’s not the same. Whenever we think of things we must do for the day, we all end up exhausted just by looking at it. Set deadlines of the most important things to do. Do not write everything. Prioritize just one or two.

The next thing is to set a goal. Just one random, simple, direct goal, and never think about the result. Normally people will think about what should be the result so they set goals. Too many that for us procrastinators are overwhelming, too idealistic. Just do what you have to do the way you wanted it to be. No to restrictions, take this as an alternative.

 

Third: Just do it 

Don’t think about why. Just work. Never think ‘is this right?’ , ‘I think they wont like it.’  80 % it will be the same product anyway.
