Appreciate The Little Things

Just a quick post about how lucky we all are. We have so much at our disposal, and sometimes I think we just don’t reach out and take advantage of it.

I went shopping alone today for the first time in a long while and it was so rewarding… All I brought home was vintage tupperware from some op-shopping but I met some interesting people. I actually ran into a complete stranger who congratulated me on my purchase of a colored scoop. She too was a collector. I came across some people who probably aren’t in it for the socialising, but I didn’t let that change my mood. I just moved forward.

Tonight at work I had a really busy and very hectic shift, I got stuck with a patient for at least an hr and a half, while my partner (because we do team nursing) was left to get everyone ready for bed. Despite this I had an awesome shift. Although I worked 7 days straight and only had one day off it didn’t matter… I look forward to work, the people I work with are awesome, and sometimes it’s like walking back in the front door, it feels like home. Even some of my patients are getting that way with recurrent admissions, but it’s not a negative thing, they need help and I love to see them. I love being around people, and sometimes that’s what I think I’m missing. Don’t get me wrong, I often have sick patients, and I have to support their families and the patient, but that’s like life. It can’t always be roses, and somedays are emotionally draining and incredibly sad, but we all have to be here for each other, and I know hat if I can’t do it, there will always be someone there to support me.

Friends, family or a stranger on the street, anyone can make an impact on you. You might not even realize the importance straight away, but I think other people make me a better person.

I am a nurse by trade, and a traditional "de facto" housewife by nature. Constantly seeking a more organised existence. I like to cook, sew and play my keyboard. I try to keep my house organised but I've not yet mastered this, and I am endeavouring to reach my image of ultimate organisation at home. I'm not sure if it's possible, but I'll give it a go.
