I’m Back

Hey guys, I’m back and boy have we got things to talk about. Whewww…..nursing and management and leadership definitely took its toll on me. The last gig I had, took me on a roller coaster ride that landed me on a psych unit getting professional help for things I could no longer control. NOW, before you say “Oh my God, she was on a psych unit?” Yup….I was and guess what there were other nurses there as well. You know why? Because life happens and for some of us it happens to knock us off our feet for a moment and because we really want to be better, we determine that it’s okay. That’s just it guys, it’s okay. I don’t want anyone, and absolutely none of my fellow nurses to ever feel that being a nurse means you’re superwoman/superman and in return your life will be flawless and perfect. What I’ve learned is that superwoman/superman needs time to process, heal, rebuild, restore, and soar. I have no shame in my experience. In fact, it gave me an opportunity to be a regular person with regular situations that built themselves up until it broke me down. I’ll go into more detail about that later, but for now….I’m back, refreshed a little, with some fight in me, and determination. But for right now……I thank God that HE always sees the best in me, when others see the worse. That He dispatched his angels to watch over me when I was so broken I couldn’t take care of myself, let alone my children. That He saw me at one of the lowest points in my life and He wrapped his arms around me and squeezed so tight that I couldn’t breathe. That what the devil thought would kill me, Jesus used to heal me. I am soooooooooooo grateful and eternally blessed for my God and His faithful, loyal, love toward me. Until next time……Have an amazing work week:}

I am an RN working on my DNP, preparing to launch several aspects of my new business and writing and getting ready to publish my first book. I love to write so blogging seemed like a great way to naturally express myself and publish my journey as a nurse.

    # Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera* in the “real world”, rather than in cyberspace!)
    * By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

    * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

    “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time) #

    The impossible we do immediately; however miracles take a little longer!
