“All of us have to remember where we came from
and what it was like then if we are to understand
where we are heading and how to get there.”  Colin Powell

 Student success tip:
1. Prioritize the big stuff.

It sounds simple enough. Unless you have urgent tasks that absolutely must be handled right away, it’s better to use your time working on important things like writing major papers, studying, practicing the skills you want to master, or making connections with your professors and classmates!

When there’s a disappointment, I don’t know if it’s the end of the story.
It may just be the beginning of a great adventure.

From Thomas Merton‘s book, Thoughts in Solitude, a prayer Merton indicated anyone can pray:

“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you.”

Thanks, Warren Hebert, faculty School of Nursing

The inner struggle is extremely difficult for all of us,

because we all have faults, severe ones, that we will struggle with forever….

It’s wise to accept that faults are inevitable. Factor that in and keep going.
