And Go...

so, here I am, literally looking at myself from the reflection of this screen and saying, ( as I'm typing ) What Rhonda are you doing? and I continue to shake my head but the fingers are still typing, and I still have no idea in hell what I am doing. To give a bit more light into why I am so lost in this blogging space and in this online space. Well, I'm 47years old and really not a techy smart person, and I have been in healthcare working 18 plus years as a Nurse LPN. That is up until literally a week ago, when I literally was just exhausted from from working short all the time, having job demands grow and feeling like I had no support from some managers. I became frustrated after working an extremely difficult weekend and was totally at the end of my rope when I had to explain the details to my manager about the frustrations and ended up feeling like I had to defend myself for something out of my hands. And basically that " something" was the actions and point of view of others. I literally got up from the meeting and went to make a coffee, instead turned around walked back to the meeting, opened the door and said, " I quit" and now I am here. So yes, this is scary, and yes this is total out of my comfort level and not at all a space where I have any knowledge, but I'm here. Simply put, there's got to be a better way. ( there's G2B a better way) A better way to live life, a better way to make a living, a better way to anything. I'm about to find out. IF the risk is worth it, or will this just crumble and I'll start all over again. My teenage son, thinks this is early retirement, and just informed me that McDonalds is hiring. ( Thanks Kid!) My thoughts are, people go out on a limb all the time, and succeed. I have read really boring articles and gosh some of these folks make more money than I did nursing full time. So yeah, there's G2B a better way, and its now or never. Stay tuned for some more blogs, I can promise they will be real, easy to relate to. Give me time and You will see.

thanks for reading

R.Roy

was in nursing for 46 yrs..burnt out so many times. Changed my job a few times, just to give myself a break. My health forced me to retire earlier than I wanted to, Yet I now feel, mentally, so much better. I gave my all, and in the end, found out I was just a number. I am trying to reconcile the fact that I meant more to my clients than the companies I worked for. And I Was very good at my job. So I was always in it for the people I assisted and cared for.

I DID make a big difference, to many. And for that, I'm grateful and humbled.

Yes, there has G2B a better way.…

Thanks so much for your feedback, means a lot and I hope you keep stopping by to see future content. Nursing is very demanding but also a very rewarding field. I feel healthcare has changed a lot over just the past couple of years and stress levels among all those in healthcare for all levels ( Nursing, non nursing) etc. are at an all time high. Everyone still standing tall and strong need to be applauded. Thanks for your comment, stay strong and stop by anytime.

thanks so much, means a lot, hope you continue to stop by as the content and site continues to grow. Not sure of the direction, but I'm hoping it goes somewhere. I suppose even if it doesn't take a ton of growth, if anyone out there can relate and feel better from the content, well then I will consider that a win for both of us. Take Care. Spread the word, share my link.😀
