Getting Settled

You will face many defeats in life, but never let yourself be defeated.

It's been eight months since I relocated to a new city and started my career as a Cardiac Nurse. Since then, my career has already shifted gears. I am now an OR Nurse! It would be an understatement if I told you I wasn't stressed with the entirety of this new life path. But like everything, we just have to ride the wave and things always eventually fall into place.

Establishing a new routine has helped me to remain accountable for all my new responsibilities. It's not seamless everyday, but having the goal in mind is enough to have an idea of what my day-to-day will look out. One of my favorite routines is taking my 2 mile walks with my husband and Yorkie Mylo. I tend to get home sick every time I relocate away from Boston, but I've noticed these walks help me embrace my new environment and allow me to explore the area that I now call home.

A part of moving that I have been both stressed and excited about is furniture shopping. It is major to love the space you live in. Many times we just buy because we need, but this time around, I have purposely picked every piece. With the pandemic still in play, shipping times has been the most annoying part of it all. Many things are backordered or delayed in transit.

As far as work, well that too can be stressful and overwhelming; not because I am incapable or not love it, but because it's a new career and a huge learning curve. I always start all my new endeavors with the next goal already in mind. This has always allowed me to keep my eye on the prize. My plan is to go back to school to obtain my fourth and final degree within the next year or so. In the meantime, I will be absorbing all the knowledge around me and becoming the best version of myself.

Moreover, everyone knows I have a passion for cooking. I plan to explore more in the kitchen and share with you all once I get settled. In the meantime, you can check out my cooking adventures on my Instagram.
