Wow, months have flown by since my last blog post!
Back to work, busy summer life and no real excuse here….
I have started at a new job in the nursing world. Mental Health! For children! Wowza! My life really is not that bad compared to these little beings! They truly are resilient little kiddos that have been through more than what many adults have ever been through in their lifetime! And they are under 13 years old! Its hard not to take it home some (or most) days. But, alas, like most other nursing jobs you need to desensitize and try to keep work at work.
As for home life, the last few months have been an emotional rollercoaster here. My feelings have ranged from pure bliss to feeling downright depressed. One thing that really has gotten me through these emotions, especially the lower ones, have been an affirmation that I bumped into while randomly snooping around on Facebook.
Back story – I was looking at a girls Facebook page who used to work with me in Emergency some years ago. Well, she has transformed her nursing career to a more alternative nursing approach and she truly lives each day to the fullest. I love checking out her page for her updates. She had this daily affirmation that has a whole bunch of phrases flipping around and you take a screen shot to reveal what your daily affirmation will be. I loved the look of this idea and so decided to do it!
Well – my affirmation came up I am TRUSTING THE JOURNEY. And although some days/hours/minutes I find this very difficult, I am doing just that. I am trusting the journey.
My life has definitely not been an easy road in many aspects of life. But it has brought me to this amazing place that I am at today. And I wouldn’t change it for the world. Do I wish some things had turned out differently? Definitely. But I am trusting the journey and doing all I can in my power to live the best life that I can. I appreciate so much that my life has given me and I have worked hard to be where I am today!
So as I keep trusting the journey, I cannot wait to see what the future has in store!
