The Weekly.

Friends- Happy Monday!

And so, we meet again…another 7 days has past…another 168 hours of adventure and opportunity have come and gone…and here we are faced with a new day. Another 7 days…another 168 hours…another week. So, let’s be intentional with this time, friends! Let’s commit to seizing opportunity, to embracing the here and now, to seeking reconciliation in relationships, to seeing the beauty amidst the crazy, chaos of life.

Academics: 

*Today begins week 3, with our first midterm next week, midterm clinical evaluations upcoming and back-to-back 6:30am clinical start times. I am currently doing my clinical rotation in orthopedics and am enjoying the learning that this unit brings. Starting to feel a bit more like a nurse…like I actually have a good idea of where all this learning is going…like my passion for compassion and my love for learning are coming together in a practice. I was encouraged by some wise words from Patch Adams this week…

You treat a disease: you win, you lose. 

You treat a person, I guarantee you win- no matter the outcome. 

Learning to do this with my patients…to treat the person, acknowledging their story, their strengths, their weaknesses, their fears, their pain…knowing that if I first acknowledge this, I will be able to better treat the ailment that presents.

Must-Haves:

*Lovin this BP camisole tank! And it’s on sale~ the perfect addition to your spring/summer style.

*This fit & flare midi dress is an adorable pick from the Old Navy spring dress sale!

*Tanning lotion…and this stuff actually works! Living in the pacific northwest means very little sun exposure and I am natually inclined to have ghost-like coloring anyways, so I need all the help I can get! This stuff works great, smells good, and is long lasting.

 Goals for the Week:

This past week I got to engage in week 2 of ballet class! I am loving every minute of it and learning a lot.

*God has recently challenged me to set aside some things…some actions, some thoughts, some things that bring me fear and anxiety and replace these spaces with prayer. As I prepare to come to the end of a big season in my life, there are some questions and fears about what the other side will look like. In this wrestle with these actions, thoughts, and things, I’ve felt God strongly put it on my heart to push into my conversations with Him- prayer. To give that space of worry over to Him….to walk in faith with hands gripped tight and heart bent low.

So, this week, I engage in this practice of turning my eyes to Him and raising up my heart, trusting that He will well up this HOPE within my heart for what the next chapter will hold.
