I get excited whenever I stumbled upon a treasured find. Its like hunting for gold but you found diamonds instead! Below is a gem that I came across reading in the blogosphere and I am inspired by her words and the positive energy that glows from it (you can almost see joy bouncing off most of her work). Check out the rest of Janae Johnson’s articles here.

I’ve been blessed to become a nurse

But sometimes I feel like I’ve been cursed

I’ve seen people at their best

Many times I’ve met them at their worst

A rewarding career

A lifetime of cheer

If that’s what you think nursing is all about…

I’m sorry to inform you my dear

Sometimes we get cursed out

And people may also scream

You can believe you’re doing your best

And people will still say you’re mean

Sometimes we’re unappreciated which makes us feel like we’ve failed

Sometimes we walk through the door and we know it’s going to be hell

The energy is thick

The patients are sad

Verbal deescalation is everything

But, be sure not to make them mad

And although I’ve experienced some rough times as a nurse, I genuinely love what I do

It feels good to be in a position to help others that really need you

Nursing has become more than a career, it’s become a lifestyle to me

God handpicked some of the strongest women and made them nurses, I’m blessed that he entrusted me

To all of my patients, thank you for you have pushed me to be all that I can be

Your strength has made me stronger

Your vulnerability has helped a ton

You’ve challenged me more than you’ll ever know, but in the same breath gave me courage to move on

I thank you for your bluntness

I thank you for your laughs

I thank you for allowing me to help you and trusting me with stories from your past

You have all helped me so much on this journey to become a better me and as I always tell you right before we depart, make sure you take care of yourself and thank YOU for helping me.

“If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.” -Bishop T.D. Jakes

If you know me, you know that….
