Simply Rosalyn, #WeeklyBlog

19 May 2017

My first two weeks went by so quick – fast but smooth! Monday, May 05, was a challenge due to forgotten passwords however, by Wednesday I was pretty much settled. And though I miss being home with my children, specially with the littlest of them, I am also glad to finally be back working – and be on #payroll. 🙂

It is not easy being off for 5 weeks and not get paid for the most part of it. I have to admit that catching up on financial responsibilities is a struggle. So yes, I am thankful I recovered well, the baby is healthy, and that I am back to work. Again. Sooner than I originally planned, but it is what it is.  I am just so #blessed my Mom and Dad are here to help with the kids. Without them, we’d be in a rush looking for a sitter. And who knows who you get. With today’s news about babysitters-from-hell, one can’t really take a chance. So with so much to thank for, I really have to look at the bright side of things – see the glass half full and not half empty… 

I am glad to see old familiar faces of co-workers I got to know since I came on board. It is also good to know that patients who I came to form bonds with are actually looking forward to seeing me. I am truly saddened by the news that one passed away just after I went on leave. But despite of all the unwanted events that could happen in a #healthcare environment, this job truly gives me another purpose in life outside of my personal walls. I love what I do. And I am always grateful for the opportunity to be a part of someone else’s journey in life…

It is that priceless #reward that makes me want to go back to work the next day…“

I am looking forward to being on this field for a long time.  Just like how my parents describe teaching – this, too, entails passion. The thought of going home at the end of the day knowing I’ve helped, that I’ve provided my service to someone in need gives me that sense of #pride. It is that priceless #reward that makes me want to go back to work the next day…

Workplace, #TriageNurse.

Yes, work and life runs on the same #highway. You learn from both #personal and #professional experience. Working in patient care opened a whole new understanding in me as I started to see from other people’s eyes, and perceive through other’s senses. We all have different definitions of life and living due to our unique experiences. But where I stand at this time, I see most of us are going through some sort of a challenge – and surviving it is what makes it a #beautifulstruggle
