My advice for this week is do not shy away from a challenge meet it head on and if you fail you fail and if you succeed you succeed but no matter what at least you tried. All HE is asking is for you to try!!!!!!!! The bible says in Isaiah 55:11( NKJ)- So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
I have officially been working in the role as Sr. RN on the Women's side of a Maternal and Child Health clinic for 7 weeks now. It has had its challenges but this week gave me the renewal I needed. Even though I have made mistakes, done things I'm not proud of ...I have done more good than bad. This week I got many hugs, thanks, and congratulations from the clients I serve. This embracing smartness thing is really working!! One client stated " wow you're so young and you know so much about family planning and what not." I guess passion shines! That really made my day Friday; because it just shows Gods favor. This day I was on my own, for the most part, but I did not feel the pressure like I did the first time I was left to my own devices.... I was more confident, willing to take on a challenge, and I made sure when you stepped into my office , as a client you felt like nothing else mattered and you got my undivided attention. I did not let on that I had charts out the wazoo to document on ,triage calls to return, and the "RN on call". No I handle it with the strength of Jesus and focused on the tasks at hand. this experience is making me a better and more confident nurse. To all my new nurses out there, there will be days when you want to cry and there will be days that your heart is filled with joy; but remember on the days that you cry joy is soon to follow and on the days you are filled with joy cherish each moment because new adventures and challenges await on the horizon.
