Nursing

As 2020 approaches it is a perfect time for personal, familial, spiritual, social, and professional reflection.

Ask yourself these simple questions about 2019:

1. PERSONAL REFLECTION

-Is there anything about myself that I feel I good about …that I want to continue in 2020?

-Is there anything about myself that I feel I would like to do differently in 2020?

– Is there anything about myself that I felt was challenging? And could I benefit from help and support from others in 2020?

2. FAMILIAL REFLECTION

-Is there anything about family relationships that I feel I good about that I want to continue in 2020?

-Is there anything about my family relationships that I feel I would like to change in 2020?

– Is there anything about my family relationships that I felt was challenging for me that I could benefit from help and support from others in 2020?

3. SPIRITUAL

-Is there anything about my spiritual practices that I feel I good about that I want to continue in 2020?

-Is there anything about my spiritual practices that I feel I would like to do differently in 2020?

– Is there anything about my spiritual practices that I felt was challenging? And could I benefit from help and support from others in 2020?

4. SOCIAL ACTIVITY

Is there anything about my social life practices that I feel I good about that I want to continue in 2020?

-Is there anything about my social life practices that I feel I would like to do differently in 2020?

– Is there anything about my social life practices that I felt were challenging and I could benefit from help and support from others in 2020?

5. PROFESSIONAL LIFE

LET ME PAUSE HERE AND SAY IF YOU DON’T HAVE A J.O.B OR IF YOU ARE RETIRED THIS STILL APPLIES TO YOU!

A professional life is what you choose to be engaged in…….whether its cooking, cleaning, art, volunteerism, knitting, crafts, mentoring, writing, working, working out, school, public speaking, etc.

Your passion as your profession!

You are NOT your job! You are not your career or lack of career.

YOU ARE YOUR PASSION

A special note to nurses……….Nurses – you are not your license. You are your passion.

Ask yourself here…..

– What was I passionate about in 2019?

-Do I want to take that same cause into 2020?

-Do I want to make my passion into a career or keep it separate?

-Do I want to do more with my passion or stay where I am?

-Do I want are need support from others to pursue my passion? If so, ask for it in 2020! This is your year!

These are important reflections for evaluating balance into our lives. We want to be whole, and connected. The opposite of addiction, depression, anxiety, and mental “unwellness” is connection to life in a balanced, healthy fashion.

Be Inspired,
