When I woke up today, I felt inspired.
A little more inspired to write than I have done for the past little while. After scheduling all of my Europe posts a few weeks ago, it felt like a little bit of a let down to start writing about home life again and fully accept that my wonderful European holiday was over.
This morning though, I felt lighter, fresher and ready for whatever comes next. And there is something coming up next which has been a long time coming and it starts on Monday. As unrelated to blogging this new step is for me, it’s exciting and motivating and a gracious reward after six months of waiting. That’s whats so fantastic about new beginnings. It’s the hope the comes with that, it’s the belief that good will happen, that we might grow, change, learn, and that our happiness may continue. It’s finding joy in the unexpected.
As many of you know, outside of this blog I have been studying at university for the past three years which I finished at the end of last year and graduated in May of this year. I am now a fully qualified Registered Nurse, an accomplishment I couldn’t be more proud of and a profession I couldn’t be more excited to ‘officially’ begin. With a new season of life approaching, am well aware of the challenges and changes which will inevitably come, and I am ready to face them when they do. This is a significant moment for me and I truly feel as though I am embarking on a new season of life. With that, it felt the time for this space to do a little growing too, for this space to enter its new season of life, and that is why you might notice a few little differences in the way this page looks now. I am excited about this new design, and I hope you find it easier to navigate, and fun to interact with, too.
I probably won’t be sharing many, if any of my nursing news on here, however, I am sure there will be plenty of posts coming up on adjusting to this next chapter, and adjusting to the shifts work and full-time work. Everything all feels mildly terrifying as I try to remember everything I’ve learnt, nerve-wracking, and all a little unfamiliar right now which I think means good things are about to happen. As confusing as that is, It’s all a little exhilarating, too.
So here’s to new chapters, new stories and new growth.
Wish me luck!
