human connection 

  I am a spiritual person, not necessarily a religious one. I do, however, believe that we all   need to feel there is a connection to a higher power for support sometimes. Even if we look to the connection among each other, the human race, without limitations of gender, politics, identified orientation, race. Just that we are all HUMAN. Maybe, if we could focus on that commonality instead of our differences, the world would be a nicer place.  


Have you ever done something as a small gesture for someone and had them seem overwhelmed by it? I have wondered why some people react so intensely with the smallest of gestures. In my line of work, we see daily, that people sometimes appreciate “the little things” more than the life-saving “big” things we do as nurses. A warm blanket, holding a hand and talking to them for a few unhurried moments (even if we don’t really have the time), a cool washcloth to a fevered forehead. I don’t need a doctor’s order to do these things, they are my comforts to my patients.

A kind, soft spoken word of encouragement to someone struggling may mean more to them then you could ever imagine. This is my small gesture to you today. You can do this.  

you can do this



What if, for just one day, you had ALL the confidence in yourself that you needed to accomplish the biggest goal you have? Think about that for a second. No uncertainty, no doubt, no hesitation… just confidence.  Feel it. Own it. Even if it’s only for a minute. Embrace it. Somewhere deep inside you a switch has been flipped. It’s up to you to act on that feeling. Not to say there won’t be failures or disappointments. But, if you read my post “Momentum“, you will at least be “in motion”,  and sometimes that is the only confidence switch you need.

Leave me a comment on what hinders your confidence.
