Here are 5 things I will love to whisper into your mind and have you take into the future
Every day you wake up and go to work.
I know that sometimes, you simply want to sleep in your bed or go on a vacation. But you had to arrive at work and put in your best.
That’s courageous. That’s simply so!
I know that sometimes you just want to cry out your heart, and throw in the towel but when you remember that so much depends on your presence at the bedside, you brace up again and do what you had to do.
I am proud of this courageous-you.
I see determination shine through your every step. You want to do everything to save that life. You want to do everything to bring hope to the patient’s relatives. You are determined to stay alive till the shift ends. Again and again and again!
It looks like an ending game. This relationship you have built with the system. You pour yourself into what you do and you just want to see successful endings.
Do you know determination will definitely get you there?
Do you how much the angels want to see thriving?
Those goals looked impossible but you achieved them.
It looked like it would never come to pass, but it did come to pass.
When you wrote them down, you laughed at yourself. You probably told yourself that it would not work. But you found a way around it. You burnt the midnight candle and you stayed awake to birth your baby-your dreams.
They came alive when you told your body not to give in to tiredness.
They came alive when you told your mind to keep working on the success route.
They came alive when you told your spirit man that ” yes! all things are possible!
This is your beautiful place. This is where you pour out yourself. This is the place you have to give your best. This is the place that gives you your title as a nurse. For without this, you might just forget you were a nurse.
Everyday, when we show up here,we learn something new. We are never the same. We never see the same set of people. People never forget you because they know exactly where they met you. You might forget because many keep coming, getting admitted and getting discharged. Everyday.
You may forget but the patient never does.
I see you trying to grow. I know you want to be the best. I know you want to learn so that you can be a better nurse, a balanced nurse.
You took those courses because you wanted to know more, learn and unlearn.
You are so amazing at finding growth spots and seeking for ways to dig in.
That is why you joined the Stepped-up Nurse Academy. That is why you decided to give your best to see others grow.
