Time well spent...
Some choices we make drastically change our lives. Some of those choices we are proud of and others not so much. One of the best decisions I ever made was to go to nursing school. It wasn't a choice that I made solely on my own, Alex and I talked for several months about it before we got married and then several times once I was in the nursing program, but without a doubt it was a wise choice. It has changed not only my life but also Alex's. Things we once thought would never happen have been happening, we are closer as a family than we have ever been and are continuing to grow as individuals on a daily basis.
Now being a nurse is not easy. Death is not something I deal well with and working in geriatrics it occurs more frequently than I like. There's been moments when I leave work with tears streaming down my face because it's been a rough night or two. With all of that at the end of the day I still love my job and what I do. I feel I have a confidence which I didn't have before when working and I know that the decisions I make can impact someone else. Not to mention the freedom with my finances which I felt would never occur and living with supportive parents has greatly helped with that.
Life is good! Hope you all are well! Much love!
