BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Its been almost 3 months since I started my new job as a nurse care coordinator and working from home. I have to say, working from home has its own challenges too.

When you think of flexibility, freedom, and finances.....working from home is a wonderful thing. Yet, I am finding out that you loose a lot of this public interaction and being around other great and not so great personalities.

When I was working in the hospital. I talked about people I work with that really got on my freaking nerves.  Now that I'm away from them,  I'm really enjoying not being around them. But miss the ones who I am fond of.

They say, you cannot have everything. But, why is that? Is it bad that I wish to have the best of both worlds?

Well.... My clinical manager asked me during our meeting if I am still in a happy place with what I'm doing. I was taken aback because you don't hear this too often. I said yes, I'm good and still learning a lot.

She did say that when I'm ready, she can put me in one of the hospital in the area and do a transition of care visit for eligible clients. Like once or twice a week. I was surprised that at an early stage of this job, she is offering me this very timely opportunity.

This just seems too good to be true. What do you think

Favorable circumstances do not come often. I'll do it and see what happens. Like what I said before, I wouldn't know if I don't do it. This has been my mantra when I find myself in a crossroad. It works for me. Every time.

In the meantime, I have been busy reviving my old hobby of painting. I have been enjoying these moments of expressing my point across through a brush, paint and canvas.I painted a lot of landscapes a while back. Now, I am widening my repertoire by adding people or still life in my subjects.

So far, it has been an awesome experience for me.  Its relaxing but tiring at times. There's always an on going decision making process happenong while painting. But in the end, the finish product makes me smile. and that's good enough for me.

Reminds me of the nursing process.

An on going process of steps to get to desirable outcomes

  1. There are many occupations in our society. But the nursing sector is more dependable and active for some dedicated nurse. They are not just nursing but they are trying with heart and soul. A nurse helps patients the whole walk of life.
