I have a tendency to feel overwhelmed very quickly. Iโ€™m an organizer, a list maker. But sometimes those lists can be consuming. Especially when doing a job I have little experience in. My new professional life is wonderful and fulfilling. However a lot of times I doubt my abilities because I often donโ€™t understand the conversations around me. I donโ€™t speak medical jargon. I donโ€™t know the difference between RN, LPN, Techs. I look at the list, spanning over two pages, thinking I canโ€™t get all this done. Hell, I donโ€™t even know what half of these things are or how to address them. But I begin. By noon, Iโ€™m ready for a mental break, for fresh air, for a breeze and rustling leaves. I sit in the courtyard to eat my lunch. I enjoy these moments of solitude. They are few and far between these days. And when I return to my desk I look at my list and Iโ€™m shocked. Iโ€™ve checked off more than half of the items on it. And I remind myself what I have to over and over....I CAN do it. I AM doing it.

A few years ago, a woman I barely knew gifted me this Tervis. She didnโ€™t know turtles were a favorite of mine, that I have one tattooed on my body. I didnโ€™t know they were special to her either. We did know that we had a kinship. One that would grow over the following years. And now, more miles separate us than Iโ€™d like. But I think of her often, of her strength, of her kindness, of her selflessness. She is my momma role model. Hell, sheโ€™s my hero. And anyone who knows her feels the same, I guarantee it. ๐Ÿข ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿข@bdrummond54
