Sorry for the silence, but don’t feel too left out, it’s not just my virtual friends who have felt my silence. It’s been a socially silent time in my life as well.
But I’ve missed you! I always have a running post in my head but by the time I have a minute to sit down and write I’m literally too exhausted to do anything but sleep.
It’s been far more difficult returning to work than I anticipated, and I was already anticipating a lot of difficulty! I was focused on being away from Ezekiel as being the most difficult part, and that’s very true, it’s difficult and doesn’t seem to get easier. However there are other difficulties I didn’t account for. The positive of returning to work is rediscovering my love and passion for nursing. It’s one of those passions that you just want to talk and talk about and try and make everyone around you understand just how much you love it without ever feeling like you’ve accomplished your goal.
I feel like I’ve temporarily lost any sense of normalcy, and balance. I’ve just been surviving the last 7 weeks but I feel as though I’m ready to get out of the survival slump and get back to feeling normal and balanced. I’m just not sure how that’s going to happen or what I need to do to get there.
I don’t know that I’ll post a lot but I wanted to pop in and say hey. I hope you are all well, and that you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
