It began on October 3, 2017

This post is related to “A lot has happened with me since October 3, 2017.” The block quote below is my edited journal entry dated October 3, 2017. After receiving a 30-day review, I was emotional. This was how it all began when I decided to pursue a career in nursing. I worked with the…

To date, a handful of eventful moments happened in my life.

Last October 3, 2017, at work, I had my follow-up 30-day performance review. After this review, I decided I wanted to be a registered nurse.

I voluntarily ended my job as a QA Specialist at the investigative services firm.

I’ve taken the initial steps to becoming a registered nurse and to where I am to date.

In the posts following I shall provide you with more details of my eventful moments.

The door of my previous career has closed.

A door—a new chapter—is open to a fruitful and noble career that I believe I am meant to be in.

My feeling now is that I am very excited about what’s coming ahead. It’s happening. I’ve taken the plunge.

Honestly, it’s scary. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about this. But, I’m doing it and I ain’t looking back.

I hope you like this aside and share it.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Happy that Autumn is here

It’s been three weeks since September 22, 2017. I notice the terrestrial changes occurring. Autumn, my favorite season, has a peculiar personality of its own that may be powerfully attractive. The commencement of a world of new sensations. The arrival of hazy sun. Cold moving mist early in the morning. I inhale the crisp air….

Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.
