Writing 101: Day 5


I thought I was truly living when I graduated nursing school. I started working in hospitals and was happier than a clam. Cut to 20 years later, I realized that there is more to life than just punching a clock and going through routines.  I identified myself as  nurse. I’m starting to realize that is not all I am. I don’t want to just exist and go through the motions. I’m trying to find my purpose. I know God has a plan that is bigger than punching a clock. I want to live!!!! Once I figure it out I will let you know but for right now I am on a journey to live😊.


I just received a award!!!!

Inspiring Blogs

I have read and followed a lot of blogs over the last two weeks. I have learned a great deal. I am learning how to write, voice my feelings, and hopefully make some friends.

Here are a few of my favorites:
http://Blabberwockying.wordpress.com Why appreciate others. In a world of negativity he brings the light, brightness, and positivity. I want to look at the world that way. The sad part is I did feel this way but I felt so beat down and walked over. I felt like people took advantage. But of course those feelings lead to darkness. Thanks Vibrant for reacquainting me with the light!! Plus Vibrant is always very helpful and has kind words for everyone.

http://Megselizabeth86.wordpress.com. Wow!!!! How inspiring is this blog. I love her layout and writing style. She had me at bucket list. I want to make my own and of course get out there in cross them off. Thanks Meg’s!!

http://amommasview.wordpress.com OMG!!! I love the interaction on her blog. When does she find the time😊? Her blog has me inspired to keep my eyes on the prize. See the world and be inspired by the beauty of it. Thank you!!!

http://Jenniferpeck23.wordpress.com We are kindred spirits. I love the friendships that are forming through blogging. I have inspired you but you have certainly inspired me to think of things in a new way. I thank you!!!!

Can’t wait to see where this blogging journey takes me. Thanks blogging101! @Vibrant,@jenniferpeck23, @amommasview, and @Megan Elizabeth
