This week was INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE - as they like to say... whoever they are. -
Working in the #nurselife this week was busier than we have been for a long time. More surgical patients then we have had in months and let's just say that many of our patients were "trying" on me... I poured my heart and soul into every shift and it left me feeling very empty and drained by the end of each day. Our patients deserve to have the BEST EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE and I'm proud of what we do on our unit - But still by Friday I was SO READY to just rest and fill my cup. I often feel guilty for not doing it all. I want to be the best nurse, the best girlfriend, the best daughter, the best health and fitness coach, the best business owner - - - I am what I like to refer to as a "recovering perfectionist." -
It's totally my personality to go go go 24/7 and wanting to be "successful" at everything in my life. But what does that even mean anyway? Success has to be defined by ME and not the world around me. I'm currently reading the book Present Over Perfect - and it's so good and the perfect message I need in my life right now.
A good friend texted me Friday night and said "You can't help anyone else if your tank is empty" - So that is EXACTLY what I'm doing this weekend. Focusing on what matters - sticking to a simple list of my priorities and getting just those done. I'm not going to worry about checking it all off either. I'm taking time to do the things that bring me joy and that are what I choose to make a priority this weekend.
wow it's almost been a full week since I have been on the blog so I think it's MORE than time to do a recap and take a look at what I've been up to this week!
Holy cow..HOW is it the weekend already?!?! Just thought I would do a random recap of the week!
A few weeks ago I somehow ran across the term for a recipe called "crackslaw" - I was like WHAT IN THE WORLD is crackslaw? Of course this lead to google...which lead to pinterest...which lead to checking out new blogs...to of course trying it out for myself! Crackslaw is a take on coleslaw that is apparently all the rage - think protein meats coleslaw that is made stirfry style - here we go!
