Better late then never I guess… this semester has seamlessly flown by *snaps fingers* just like that. I know technically the semester isn’t over but time has felt elusive and distorted while taking online classes. Its weird to think I have been in Chester sitting in front of my computer screen for 3 months now. Yes, every day brings new challenges, opportunities and thing to be great full for. But I would be lying if I said I could differentiate between the subsequent weeks that have passed by during the pandemic. There are few anchoring memories and events that lay out a timeline of school. What has happened is that I am finding more time to focus on myself in reflection and be ever present in the relationships that surround me, this abundance of time with nothing to fill it allows our minds to slow down and critically self reflect. One of the many things that I have reflected and journaled on while being at school is the idea and reality of how close I am to becoming a nurse. In 2 years who knows where I, or any of my classmates may be. We have learned so much more information and have grown so much as people in the past 2 years, I’m convinced that our growth into society with me exponential from here until graduation. Clinical rotations and labs have also allowed a great opportunity for me to reflect on what type of nurse I want to be, where I would like to work and what field I want to specialize in. These are all very important aspects of my career as a nurse and things I have been keeping in mind as I learn new information. Im excited to see what today and the rest of my life brings, I am abundantly great full for everything and everyone in my life. I hope after reading this it may inspire you to do some self reflection and find the things you’re great full for and wonder about where your future may lead you. Make someone smile today!
today’s a great day to have a great day 🙂 -Bangs
