Who looks forward to a day filled with obstacles, trials, and setbacks, where each bend in the road seems to hold something worse? How often do you have a great day? Is it the norm or the rare exception for you?
Everyone wants to have a good day, but not many people know what a good day looks like—much less how to create one. Even fewer people understand how the way you live today impacts your tomorrow. Why is that? The root of the problem is that most people misunderstand success. If we have a faulty view of success, we take a faulty approach to our day. As a result, today falls to pieces.
Take today, for example. How would you rate it? So far, has today been a great day? Or has it been less than wonderful? Perhaps you haven’t even thought about it until now. If I asked you to rate today on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being perfect), would you even know how to score it? Upon what would you base your rating? Would it depend on how you feel? Would it be determined by how many items you’ve checked off your to-do list? Would you score your day according to how much time you’ve spent with someone you love? How do you define success for today?
Define success for yourself and hope you made today matter.
Here’s my book post for the semester 😉 This is semester 4/5 in my nursing program. This semester I’m taking: Adult Health II | Pediatrics | Nursing leadership | Community/Public Health Nursing .
I’m super exciting and this this will be one of my favorite semesters. Though my goal isn’t to work as a community nurse, community/public health is something I am very, very passionate about. Also, I have a previous Bachelors Of Science in Community Health Science. (You’re local annoying vaccine advocate). This week I’ve focused on transferring my syllabus schedules into my planning, getting ahead on reading, and setting up had a skills lab to prepare for clinical tomorrow.
Any advice or tips or these courses? I’d love to hear them!! .

GUYS. Nutrition is the ugly step sister of nursing school. It’s the truth. How often do we scramble with those nutrition NCLEX questions?!? .
I made this GUIDE for all of you!! It’s simple and to the point. It includes lab values, Hospital diet orders, and food sources. All the stuff we don’t talk about in school but need to know! .
LINK IN BIO! I PROMISE you need this one. .
I think the scrubs are a bit big on me, but they got the job done 😂 got to watch a cardiac ablation procedure a few days ago, so it called for what they call in theater a “quick change” 😂 🔷🔹🔷🔹I’m really liking my cardiology rotation! I have so much respect for cardiologists, they have so much anatomical, scientific, and electrophysiology knowledge. I’m thankful this month for preceptors who are eager to teach - being a med student in a hospital is often difficult, but it’s a lot easier when you feel welcomed as a member of the team ✔️
Extra special receiving heartfelt thanks from a staff member addressed to the Chief Executive & Director of Medical Services.......
“I am writing to say a huge thank you on behalf of my family to Monash Health for the care provided to my dad in his recent admission under the Cardiothoracic team. It was an unexpected admission, but throughout the 3.5 weeks that he was in, we were impressed with the care & support provided by every team, ward & department. I would like to say a special thanks to the medical, nursing, physio & allied health, food services & cleaning staff in the following areas:
•cardiothoracics & ward 32
•cardiology & CCU
•geriatrics/aged care team
And anyone else I may have missed involved in his care during those weeks.
It has been my privilege to work at Monash Health for most of the past two decades, and it is also the place I rely on for help when my family needs medical care. I am proud to be part of this organisation, & will always be grateful for the expertise, kindness & support it has offered my family members in their time of need.”

Breastfeeding has been such an awesome experience so far! It's been everything I had hoped it would be 😍 It feels so awesome to be able to nourish my baby boy with my body. 💙
We saw a lactation consultant on day 3 and even though we didn't have any serious issues I felt it was really valuable to have her evaluate our latch and share her tips.
Don't be afraid to reach out for help mamas!! There is nothing wrong with needing a bit of guidance.
If you're local and needing some help or know someone else who might let me know and I'll give you the number of the consultant we worked with. She's seriously brilliant!
Some days are harder than others. Am I right or am I right? And some days it feels like the goals and plans I have set for myself are still so far out of reach. Burn out has been big the last month. And I have been feeling less than amazing about myself. However, the other day at church the pastor mentioned “stopping” and one thing he suggested some need to stop doing is talking bad to yourself about yourself. 🤦🏼♀️🙋♀️ guilty. I took a moment to look at things I feel I have succeeded at, improved on, and made a list of things I am proud of about myself. It wasn’t easy, and I wanted to add a list of “buts”BUT I didn’t. Take a minute and make a list of what you are proud of about yourself or write yourself a letter! 🐛🦋🌸 #bloom#studentlife#momlife#nursing#nursingstudent#whenigrowup#nurse#rngoals#stagnant#lifeishard#beautiful#blooming
My attending once told me, “you’ll miss 💯% of the things you don’t look for”. So when I look at the pelvis X-ray, this is my approach.
1. Soft tissues - know where the internal organs are supposed to be. Look for bowel obstruction, ureteral and bladder stones, in women calcifies fibroids or ovarian masses.
2. Check the vessels for atherosclerosis and stents.
3. Trace the outline of every bone. Check everything for a fracture.
4. Look at the sites of muscle attachment for avulsion injuries.
I know that seems like a lot, but it gets easier as you look at more studies. Main thing, know your anatomy and be consistent in your approach.
10 years ago I was dreaming of becoming a physician, I was afraid of taking my MCAT for the second time, I was lonely in Miami after my mom left to do residency in NYC and my friends went to do a semester abroad in Europe. 2009 was a year of self growth, I pulled through my fears and insecurities and became a better candidate for medical school, I also got bit by the traveling bug and visited my friends in Europe for ~3m. Looking at my life today in 2019, I couldn’t ask for more! I am exactly where I dreamed I would be. I am a physician, I matched my #1 choice for fellowship in my favorite city. I met and married the love of my life. I am even closer to my friends now than in 2009, I also made some new amazing friendships in the past 10y. Today, I continue to enjoy traveling but now I stay in better hotels and eat better than the McDonalds Euro Menu 🤣. In summary, I wouldn’t change anything ! And I can’t wait to see what the pictures look like in 10 more years #10yearchallenge 💙
#10yearchallenge 10 years ago, I was in High School, and had no idea how much my life was about to change. I was young and made some decisions that would set me on a path I was not ready to deal with. I became pregnant my junior year of high school and had my daughter during my senior year. With support from my family, I was able to finish my senior year and graduate on time with the rest of my classmates. Juggling a part time job and an infant was not easy, but I did it! My lifetime goals of going away to college was soon put on hold to take care of my baby. This transition forced me to grow up sooner than most teenagers and I would never have imagined my life would be where I am today. Having my daughter in High School turned out to be a beautiful blessing and I wouldn't change a thing that happened in my life. She saved me when I didn't know I needed to be and helped mold me into the person I am today.
So, fast forward to today, I graduated nursing school 8 months ago, and I am currently working as an RN in the Intensive Care Unit and currently attending college to further my education.
