Gratitude

WOW! What a month.  I have been through a lot. My personal life included a death scare, personal illness, family trauma, and family miracle.  My work… unappreciative/selfish leadership, awesome peer support, and a new outlook at how I will deal with the processes. All has made me stronger and a better leader/mentor!  We all need to take a minute to reflect!  There will be a day that God needs us back and all this will still be here.  Everyone will move on.  We must cherish everything in our lives!  Never taking anything for granted.

I learned a lot of valuable lessons over the past few weeks.  One being the fact that I will never change who I am for anyone!  I will call it how I see it and I will continue to have the integrity to own up to my mistakes.  Despite other’s delusional mind sets and lack of their own integrity.  I will continue to take care of those placed under my training, supervision or mentorship!  I will pick my battles but always standup for what I believe in even if it is not popular to do so.

I am grateful for everyone I have had the privilege to come into contact with.  I have always seemed to be a magnet for random introductions and conversations.  I told my Mini Me once, “I believe I am here to take people’s pain away.”  I can recall my time working with Hospice and their patients who only had 6 months or less to live.  I would always get attached to them, try my best to make them feel okay, all as I watch them dwindle away…then pass away.  I have also noticed how people are drawn to me so much so they feel comfortable telling me their concerns, issues, accomplishments, or heartache.  I am grateful God has blessed me with the ability to speak with people in a patient, compassionate, and encouraging way.  This has made me a stronger woman, mother, friend, and Airman.  I challenge each of you take care of each other!  Embrace the ability to give!  I thank you all for following our blog and hope to continue to entertain, educate, and inspire you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

XOXO Besos,
