Title Page

My journey in life did not truly began till the summer of 2011. Just like the setting scene of the book Ping, it was the beginning of life to come that was all we knew. When everything in the pond was pure bliss, life was wonderful to say the least. It seemed as though nothing could be a problem and that life was kind and no one really knew what lie ahead. Everything at the pond was laidback, easy-going, and full of contentment for everyone but Ping as we later come to find out. Little did I or Ping knew this was just the beginning of change.
In the summer of 2011, I began my first job. I was hired on as a cook for the local Pizza Hut in Carthage. I was nervous, anxious, and all

My sister was in the hospital for a week while my mother stayed a month in Vanderbilt and a month in Stallworth. I do not believe I was prepared mentally to see my mom in a wheelchair at the age of seventeen. It was a sad situation that I vowed to myself I would find a positive from it. It brought us closer together as a family and showed us our strengths to help each get better. While they was in the hospital, I stayed with my sister in the children’s wing while my dad stayed with mom over in the trauma ICU. My sister had a marvelous RN that answered all my questions and helped me calm my fears. Not only could she be knowledgeable but she knew how to comfort us and made it all the easier. Right then I knew who I wanted to be like one day. She did not know the effect she had on me and probably never will, but I have made the decision to be a RN and never looked back no matter what I had to …show more content…
You learn that trials will arise you just have to be strong enough to get thru them when it seems at the moment all is hopeless. I recall the quotes that, “Change-real change- is unsettling. Fear of change, fear of taking risks, fear of ridicule or that someone will disapprove of your goals and dreams-these are the enemies of intention and transformation.” (Ping, pg.19). Also, “Too many wait for just the right time and just the right place to act. The very act of waiting actually pushes the desired events away. You must do in order to be.” (Ping, pg. 32). I do not think there will ever be a better time than today to let your life become what it needs to be! Ping not only learned a lot, but showed me how close his life was to mine. Imagine

She worriedly told me that she hoped she would be able to experience the next Mother’s Day outside of a hospital bed.

    This was a great way to just spend time with each other and not worry about anything else. We were able to talk, swim, and just relax without a care in the world. On the second day, we decided to fish on the beach since we knew there were lots of fish in the water and we wanted to cook fish for dinner. We fished for a couple of hours with no luck, when suddenly my friend felt a tug. It was a strong tug, so he tried to reel it in and his fishing pole almost snapped in half.…

    I am extremely motivated to become a RN because I had told my parents that I would work in a hospital as a nurse someday.

    Fear of failure is illogical and irrational because it’s ego-based. We contort our thinking to avoid facing the truth—that we feel scared. We play it safe and convince ourselves that we’re playing it smart. How much better to live in reality; to pursue and to try, authentically, honestly, and earnestly, and to experience temporary setbacks and failures, rather than living a life of hiding, failing every moment. We will never find a perfect time to do anything, and if we wait for all of the stars to align before we take action, we are, in blunt language, waiting for our death.…
