It seems there's been quite a bit of negativity seething from my pores lately, and sadly it's been reflected in my posts. This year has been challenging so far, so I'm going to point out some of the more positive highlights in an effort to help me realize it's not all been bad.
☺ I passed the ATI Comprehensive Predictor on first attempt, and it showed I would have a 97% chance of passing NCLEX first time around
☺ Snooki came into our lives
☺ a dear friend designed a beautiful tattoo for me
☺ we went to NYC for NYE
☺ I had a great preceptorship experience, where I saw c-sections, vaginal deliveries, was able to take care of some wonderful families, and was able to do my first vaginal exam.
☺ I've made some everlasting friendships
☺ I've been able to go out and do some fun things with my family and friends, like the Medieval Times dinner
☺ I graduated from nursing school, a dream of 11+ years (more like 19, it just wasn't realized then)
☺ I've reconnected with some old friends
☺ My husband and I are going on 18 years of marriage
☺ LB and AW* will both be attending high school in the fall (*wasn't sure that was going to happen)
☺ I was able to spend time with my mom
I'm probably forgetting some things, but I really am thankful for the good in my life. It was important for me to point some1 of it out, even if it's for my own realization.
