Well, I admit that I learn new things in my job everyday. I learn new things about how to save lives. What can I say, I'm a nurse. But, more importantly, I learn more about people each day-good, bad, and well ugly.
-THere are some VERY...interesting people in the world. Some that make you smile
Some that make you question things, and some that well, challenge you.
-The old saying that "bad things happen to good people" is really true. It's been
One of the biggest challenges I faced working in the ER and Pediatrics. It's
to see bad things happen to anyone, but it seems that a lot of times really bad
things happen to really good people. It's hard for anyone to see, but hard to
reason through it when I know that my God is in charge of all that happens. It
has made for many interesting and late night chats with Joel and I.
-THe outcomes of a lot of challenging situations are all in how I react to them. A
recent song that I have been listening to is "Hallelujah" by Bethany Dillon. I
have been trying to download it to the area in the margin to the right. But I
have listened to it every day before I go to work. It says:Hallelujah, Hallelujah, whatever's in front of me, I'll CHOOSE to sing Hallelujah". Not always
an easy thing to do.
-People notice a lot more than you think they do.
-I need Jesus hand in everything I do-especially my job.
-I meet people at their most vulnerable time a lot of times, what I do with that
responsibility is really important and needs to be taken seriously.
-It's a fine balance between compassion and being too involved. Some people are able to callous themselves to "do the job", I can't do that, but I am finding it hard sometimes to not become jaded with all the different kinds of people I meet. I don't ever want to become jaded becauase to me this is more than a job, it is what I am called by Jesus to do.
SO, what have you learning from YOUR job. Whether nurse, housewife, teacher, etc. what have you learned?
