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.

  1. You are incredibly talented, from every angle in Life. You leave Memories wherever you land across the Country. You never meet a stranger. You have many Friends who adore you, and all your Family are so proud of each and every single thing you have accomplished. Your Beauty shines throughout your Heart, you give plenty, you never lack time, for it is spent the way you wish, and IF, you have a little space, you share it, still, no matter the issue, you’re right there, on top of it all. You matter. You are a true Angel on Earth. Thank you for being a Nurse. Somebody will need you…always. I Love you.
