Today was a cool-ish day here in Melbourne. When I went for my bike ride it was nice at first. The Sun shone warm and radiant..then the clouds covered the Sun's rays and a chilly wind blew. I wear nice warm clothes, but my knees were cool as ice. Hehe.
The jeans I bought a few weeks ago are becoming loose on me. I have to invest in a belt, yayyy..these work outs are paying off.
I am looking forward to nice warm Spring days in a few months time. I may even feel good wearing some nice 3/4 length pants. It has taken me some time to accept to just "Be". My kids and their friends are commenting on how I look great..and I do think alot of it is not just how I look, but how happy I am.
I find that even at work, working night shift, I have alot more energy. I am focused, which is good for my patients as they need someone who is in tune with their care.
I am going to be speaking about nursing and the role nurses have in the community in Nicholas' class in a few weeks time. I did do this for Tomas' class when he was in year 1. I enjoyed it, and I was hopeful that I might have planted a seed in some of their heads to become a health care worker. I also stated that we need alot of other allied health workers too at the end of my talk. I may do it again this time :)
I think it is important, however, for someone to do what it is that makes them happy, and know that it is ok. It is also ok to change your mind if the first thing you had your mind set on did not work out as planned. I know some people began nursing with me and went off to do something completely different half way through our course.
Well, this weekend is set to be a busy one. Tom has a party to go to, Nick plans on going to the park, which means the girls and I will go to. He has packed a picnic for us already! We will be playing basketball, skipping the rope and gliding on the flying fox..ohh yeah!
