I know your probably thinking I’m a super mom, because I can juggle so many things ALL by myself, right? Well I’ll be the first to tell you that if you think that your WRONG. I’m so blessed to have such supportive family and friends who help me when needed. When I was in nursing school I had two major life events happen to me. I got married to the love of my life and had my baby girl. Yes, it was challenging stepping into my new role of being a wife and mother, but I had tons of help along the way.
When I was in nursing school my mom spent many nights at my home when my daughter was a newborn. If you’re a parent or know someone who is then you know that having a newborn requires help and can be very exhausting. So, having the extra help around the house in addition to my husband was a blessing. Her godparents were also a huge help too and they were always there when I needed them.
Now that I’m an RN and my daughter is older I can say that while it’s still a challenge I find that it’s a little easier now to manage things. I mainly feel this way, because I have mastered prioritizing things and I make sure to have a balance with all things in my life. For instance it’s important to me that I spend time with my family, so on my off days I make sure to carve out time for them. Another thing that’s important to me is my faith. So, whenever I’m off on Sunday I make it a point to go to church.
In all, the saying “it takes a village” truly relates to my life. While I have many roles and take on many responsibilities I acknowledge the fact that I can’t do it ALL on my own. As said before I have dedicated friends and family who have helped me along the way. I’m grateful for them and without them my journey to where I am now would have been more difficult.
