Solitude as a travelling nurse was never hard to find. Aside from a handful of times, I actually thrived and sought out those opportunities. A schedule with weekdays off made that very possible. I have transitioned into a permanent weekend warrior position and am learning to adjust to life without solitude. I've learned over the years that without change, growth is fairly static. In growing, I've learned that we can either change our actions or we can change our attitude. I was pretty excited yesterday to have the opportunity to catch the sunrise on Max Patch. As I drove up in the dark, I thought about being alone with my headlamp exploring somewhere new and I got excited. When I pulled up to the trailhead and saw over 50 cars already parked my heart sunk a little. As I raced the little boy in his jammies up the hillside something I love photographing unfolded, silhouettes emerging under a dawning sky. I sat in a perfect little spot on the hilltop observing daybreak and thought about how cool it was that i was sharing such a cool experience with a bunch of strangers. So maybe I won't always have my solitude, but I certainly can change my attitude and actions.
