30 Day Blog Challenge: #28

(This was meant to be day 30 of the blog challenge but I have had to move it around. This is because day 28 was meant to be what's in your handbag/purse but I never got around to taking pictures or even bothering to look.)

So on day 28 of the challenge it asks to share about what you love about life right now. What makes you so happy in the present.

I think this deserves an in detail answer and there is so much I love right now. I think the main change that has happened in my life is being a qualified nurse. I cannot put into words how much I love my job! It is very different from my student days which feel like just yesterday.

You know when you have those moments where you have to pinch yourself? I still do. I cannot believe I am a staff nurse. I never thought I would get here. I never thought I would wear that blue stripy uniform. I never thought in a million years I would have RN behind my name. I am so unbelievably proud of myself and all my fellow graduates.

It is scary though. They say you don't learn to drive until you have your license. I studied so hard for my nursing but to actually get into the 'real' thing is frightening but so enjoyable. I love having my own patients. I love having more responsibility and the fact that I will be learning for life is brilliant!

I remember my first day (18th October 2010) being sick with nerves. Just thinking this is the first day of the rest of my career? I remember walking into my bay of patients and being so agitated. Then a lady went "Nurse, please will you help me with taking my medicene?" and I just smiled. I have been smiling ever since.

I have entered into a career that I am extremely proud to be apart of. I have had a couple of hard shifts and days where I have struggled. Then all I have to do is look at my degree and say to myself "I earned this."

So what do I love about life right now? My career. It is the best thing I have ever achieved in my life so far. I am beyond humbled to be doing what I get to do everyday :)

Love this! You always seem so passionate about your career and that makes the best type of nurse, I think. That and an actual qualified one, haha, which you are!

Awesome! I hope I find this kind of passion about being a teacher...
