How are you spending your time? Are you investing or spending? When I first heard the author of this topic, I immediately thought he would be speaking about money; well in fact it’s not about money, it’s about rather or not your investing or spending your time on the things that are of value or of importance to you. For example if you’re trying to get into school, are you investing your time researching the right school, applying to the right school, or taking the required prerequisites to get into to your dream school, or are you spending time thinking that you want to get in school, in hopes that it will somehow magically happen. Say you’re wanting a promotion at work. Are you actively showing your manager that you deserve that promotion by going the extra mile, or you hoping somehow that dream promotion will land on your lap. This resonated with me this morning, so I wanted to share with you lovely souls. We have have the power to change, the power to invest and the power to spend on the things that matter to us as well. We all have the same amount of time each day, no one has more time than the other based on lifes circumstances, it’s how we choose to utilize the time that we have. So ask yourself where you want to be or what you want to do, and say to yourself, am I investing or spending my time?
At times you may find yourself wanting to quit and just throw in the towel, however taking care of people and advocating for them, is just a small snippet if why I became what I am today.
Doing the right thing can be challenging depending on the situation and the person, however for a patient, doing the right thing is never, ever wrong.
Today was one of thise days that I just wanted to throw my hands up, but I kept calling, and calling, and calling, until I finally made headway.
This was the reason why I became a nurse 14 years ago. Doending almost 2 hours playing phone tag with mid and high level providers should never be the case with something that appears to be so minute.
In the end I pressed on and was able to get the patient what she needed. She may never know what it took or how long it took, however, I left knowing that I did the right thing.
Happy Learning 👩🏿💻♥️⛑
