A Message to My Friends Taking the Licensure Examination

Over a year ago, I have felt the anxiety that you are currently feeling right now. Twas dreadful, full of pressure, nerve-wrecking. I didn’t feel ready at all. It seemed like I knew nothing except the normal values of sodium, potassium and pH levels. I wish not to be asked about any nursing concepts, so I would not feel like an idiot who have, for several times stared blankly at my notes yet not able to get those information registered on the frontal lobe of my brain. I have felt guilty for all the times I could have studied but I didn’t. I wished I could turn back time so I may learn more than what I did.

But I knew very well that isn’t happening. That whatever how much I hope I’d have to fight that battle eventually. There’s no going back. I have to face it. And win it.

That isn’t something to be unhappy about, here are things that I hope could help you as you conquer this anxiety and win your battle.

1. Relax && Smile

RELAX Love. Breathe.

Inhale. Exhale.
Inhale. Exhale.
Inhale. Exhale.

Then SMILE. Despite the anxiety. Relax. Smile. You are not alone. Everyone is feeling the same way. Anxiety is contagious. So as much as possible attract positive energy through a smile. It will not only make you feel better, it will encourage others to do the same. No matter how wild your heart may be beating, SMILE. This is your day. This is your battle. Be your best self.

2. Cherish the Moment

All this will soon be over. The end is near. You will get to relax soon. Go to places you want to visit, meet friends, relatives and family members, watch series and movies you’ve been dying to see, music and food-trip all day and all night. You can shop clothes, shoes, drink till your hearts content, bake and cook new dishes and of course unlimited FACEBOOK and DOTA. As if you ever stop enjoying these things! *Chuckles My point is, all those things that you have given up if there ever was, you will get to enjoy them real soon. So cherish this moment for this isn’t everyday.

3. Trust Yourself.

Who else is going to believe you CAN if not yourself first? THOUGHTS turn to THINGS. So as you attract positive energy, make sure you contain it as well. Don’t let it slip away. Say it “I can do it. I will do my best. I know I can because I believe in ME!” We don’t get what we deserve. We get what we think we deserve. So turn your doubts into faith and your fears into prayers. Think of the things you want to come true then make it happen. We start making things happen the moment be believe WE CAN.

4. We are Here for You

During your big day, with all the anxiety and pressure, there is this tendency for you to think of all those people you want to be proud of you. Family, friends, significant others, relatives, batch-mates, your school- you want to make everyone you love proud. To many, this might be a motivation, an inspiration to do best. Yet to others, this might only add up to the pressure. Well, let me tell you this in behalf of everyone who truly cares and loves you. “We are already proud of you. Graduating college and all it took to accomplish that is indeed a very great job. We are here to support you as you fulfill your dream of being a licensed professional. We pray for your success because we know you deserve it. We have seen and known all your efforts. You can do it! We are with you in this Big Fight!”

 

God Bless You My Dear Friends!

The Big Day is about to come.

We will be praying for you!
