I’m back! Happy 2018!
How did 2 months just fly by like that??
My little peanut is 11 months old and I am starting to get ready for transitioning back to work. My heart just aches…
Over this last year, I have really started to find myself. I have done so much more reflecting on my life and my purpose. It isn’t easy to do this. It is something that I seem to have shoved waaaaaay deep down inside of me. Why? I do not really know. Partially, it is because I didn’t want to deal with the nitty gritty reality of being unsure of what my life’s purpose is.
Well, I’m getting closer! And I cannot be happier! Now I just need to keep working at it.
So, for starters, I am returning to a profession that I hope is not going to be long term. Maybe my mind will change? Maybe I will find an area of nursing that I feel is my “niche”? Maybe not. Most likely not. But you never know. I can’t be negative. But it’s not something I am going to do for the next 30 years if I am miserable.
I love being at home. I have found great peace and tranquility just being at home. I have been lucky enough to get to go cross-country skiing in the field behind my back yard. It makes me really get into nature, unplug and exercise at the same time. My husband’s work slows down over the winter, so when he is home I sneak away for a ski when my munchkin goes down for a snooze.
We recently got a puppy, and that takes us outside more. And let me tell ya, if I want Danica to have a good night sleep, just get her outside. Grandma was right! There is nothing like fresh air to get a baby to sleep like a baby 🙂
Lastly, I need to tell you my “New Year’s Resolution”. It is something that will take some effort, but it will be worth it in the end. I resolve to stop giving my time to people who do not deserve my time. I let people take take take and it just drains me. I have some negative people in my life and when I spend time with them I just feel worse. This needs to stop. Or at least be minimized, Life is short, spend it with people who make you happier and build you up, right?!
Ahh it feels good to write again!
