I must confess that I’m addicted to Pinterest. I’m planning my best friend’s bridal shower on there, keeping a huge log of future craft projects, spreading some ASL love and interacting with people from junior high way more than I do on Facebook. My latest favourite is this one however:
it expresses perfectly the awe I feel about becoming a nurse.
this is most definitely a theme with me. I wonder if it is fear and shake my head no. I wonder if it’s regret and again get a no. It’s pure and simple awe.
i get so jazzed over being good to people and solving their small and not-so-small problems. i want to do it more. and i want to solve bigger problems. i know i can.
in my mind’s eye, i am just me. i’m sure you see yourself, your passion and creativity and drive as just you.
yet when i look at you, I see amazing possibility. and here on this side of the coin, i see much lacking.
That was my evaluation of myself upon ending my first clinical rotation: understands people, needs more confidence.
But I was given the chance to interact with a deaf client, for the very first time outside of those i know in class. I think that was the best part of my time in gerontology. Communication, belonging, i felt a part of her community even though i was so new and faltering and still asking her to sign things slower or repeat them. I love community and team and teaching. I had to teach too! Because of my PSW experience, I was given the opportunity to mentor a fellow student. And then there are the days I’m absolutely certain that I could teach said class better than the already awesome teacher standing before me.
My dreams are scaring the crap out of me. And I can’t wait to rush right into them.
