A B O U T .
Not too long ago, I would set very unrealistic short term goals and be dreadfully hard on myself if I did not achieve them. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still hard on myself, but not in the way I had been before.
Last summer, I took an ethics in literature class at my local community college. At first, I was very turned off by the idea of waking up 4 days a week for 5 weeks to learn about literature. Little did I know, it would be the most eye opening class that I would ever take!
Our professor led us through a series of questions each day. He allowed us to form our own opinion, speak our minds, and go home, thinking in depth about life…sounds like a pretty intense class, right?? Later, we went on trips to the inner city and farms to volunteer. Growing up, I heard about how bad third world countries had it. I didn’t realize the same pain, poverty, and need for help was just a hop, skip, and jump down the road.
This class fueled my desire to help, guide, and heal others. No longer do I set impractical goals; I allow myself to feel achievement. I am on the path to becoming a family nurse practitioner, and plan to practice with holistic treatments.
The path is a slow and long one. I have already learned so much. This is the best way that I can get what I’ve learned out to the public. I hope this blog inspires others to live a healthy, holistic life that focuses on your mind, body, soul….and everything in between.
