It’s very befitting that my first words of wisdom from my new 2013 calendar would be “OPPORTUNITY”. That about sums up my next 12 months, nothing but new an exciting opportunities lie ahead for me.
I’m finishing this long journey I started back in 2009, when I first enrolled in classes to complete my RN-BSN. I will graduate this April from my Acute Care Nurse Practitioner program. I then will move on to taking and passing my certification boards (confidence, not arrogance) and finally get to start my new journey as a novice ACNP at my new job that is waiting for me!
– Opportunity –
I find myself elated and refreshed this new year. All the sacrifices I’ve made over the past couple years are finally proving fruitful. I have my health, I have my family, and now I have an amazing new chapter in my career just waiting to begin.
To say I’m lucky is an understatement. But I’d like to add that I played a small part in creating that luck. While the waters were not always smooth sailing, I survived the journey and I’m pressing full-speed ahead.
I could not have gotten this far without the help of my beautiful wife, and my amazing family and friends, not to mention my awesome classmates that virtually carried me through parts of this battle.
It’s not quite over yet, I still have some pretty lofty hurdles to traverse. But, for the first time in a long time, I’m not beat down and tired. I feel strong and full of moxie. Ready to get this party started.
Thank you 2012 for getting me where I want to be. You taught me a great deal, I won’t ever forget it. I’m ready to step across the next threshold.
And so it begins…
