This last six months have been particularly tough regarding work stresses and migraines. There are some things in life we can take control of and some we can’t. The migraines have been completely out of my control and sometimes the treatment has become more debilitating than the condition. However work is something I can control.
i have just finished my induction training with Marie Curie. I have worked alongside Marie Curie nurses and supported their staff for many years and now delighted to join their team. As a rapid response nurse I have enjoyed the buzz of sorting out many people and families at moments of crisis and to prevent myself missing this I will still do the occasional shift for my local accident and emergency department. I look forward to my new position in the community with complete focus now on palliative care.
This week has been a week of reflection. I don’t ever regret anything I do in life as I feel everything we do adds to our character and builds us into who we are. We follow paths that then deviate in a direction we hadn’t planned. With God as my leader Iam rest assured it was meant to be. Jeremiah 29v11.
This brings to mind the The serenity prayer
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
Relaxation isn’t something I do well are certainly not as others would understand butyesterday I sat for hours cutting brick slips and applying to a dollshouse I haven’t touched in 10 years. A very basic task requiring little to no effort and for me that was relaxation. Smudge hates me to be doing anything whereshe is not included so have her bedding beside m she snoozed alongside.
