Happy New Year, to one and all
The first thing that I’d like to talk about this year is the amazing response from the online community for my post published on Christmas Eve, 2017 – Dear, Mr. Hunt
I was totally blown away by the views, interactions and comments on Social Media the weeks following that post. Thank you. Thank you for hearing my voice, sharing my story and listening to my heart. I know every nurse is at a different stage in their career with different opinions, but that is where I am currently at and you listened, which is more than I even could’ve dreamed of.
I am really enjoying writing again, I found during university it was merely impossible to fit in a weekly post due to the demands of my course. Now, for the time being, I’m working and spending my days off how I please, my flow has returned and I could not be more ecstatic. Yes, the above post gave me an incredible feeling but each and every week I post, not for any kind of reaction, but for my own enjoyment.
I am thinking of making the Dear, Mr. Hunt post-style a series. I don’t want to put any pressure to write by due-dates but whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed, lost, angry, passion stricken or just burnt out (fingers crossed I don’t feel burnt out again) – I’ll write. One day my letters might reach him and make him approach Primary Care with some honesty and integrity.
I want to travel more this year. Last year we were very lucky to travel where we did but I do want to explore the world and its coffee a little more. I really enjoy immersing myself in another culture and learning about it. Who doesn’t love to travel?
The one thing that I want to continue to do this year is to photograph as much as I can. Photo’s really do speak a thousand words and provoke a million memories, feelings and emotions. I want to make sure that I diarise the journey of moving into our new home and starting our new chapter. We have an exciting 2018 ahead of us and I can’t wait to experience it all.
Here’s to 2018!
