Taking care of you…

I think becoming a nurse was a natural path for me though it wasn’t something I planned early on.  I care.  Plain and simple.  I care about my family, my friends, and my tiny patients.  Often as nurses it is easy for us to get caught in the politics, the frustration of being understaffed, or being undermined by one another that we forget why we became nurses in the first place.  I think this is something common to the human condition, not just nurses.  Often I find myself in this place.  It is the little things in life that bring me back when I feel unbalanced.  Today I met a dear friend for fika (Swedish coffee break) and it seems this short brief meeting was all I needed to reset.  It is important to take a moment to  breathe, reflect, and let go in life.  Some days are better than others, but we must all try to take the time needed to take care of ourselves, something we often forget in life.

First ever entry…

Since moving to Sweden nearly five years ago, I’ve had many friends and family members urge me to start a blog.  I was always reluctant because I thought that I was  already active enough on social media.  The fact is that I love to read, write, and breathe inspiration.  I hope this blog gives those of us in need just a bit.  I remember as far back as the age of 14 or 15 that I dreamed of one day traveling and or living in Europe and here I am!!  It is through my nursing career (and a little love) that I made it here.  It’s not always easy, but it is possible.  My goal is to inspire you, share ideas with you, and in turn learn something myself.  Thanks for reading and look forward to the journey!!!
