I just wanted to send you encouragement. It's so hard when things don't seem to go the way we hoped or planned, especially when we are trying so hard and are giving so much of ourselves. It's this moment of feeling like, "Okay Universe. I'm doing the work. I'm being steadfast. Where are the results?"

What I continue to find, over and over, is that it is I who overcomplicate things. In front of me is a life that is missing me. I get so far ahead of myself sometimes. I think I need to do something or need to be someone when I already am. I am the smile that greets the gas station attendant who has had angry customer after angry customer. I am the person who paid for the lady's coffee in line behind me.

You were the fresh new face to read my piece and highlight something that in turn, made me feel as though I wasn't writing into the abyss.

Together, we are the face of God reminding others that through perseverance and determination we can and will make a difference. Whatever the Universe throws at us, we are the spunk that says, "Is that all you got?" 😉 Sending you love and light and heartfelt understanding. Know that there are times where our seeds are still gaining roots and that when the time comes, we will bear fruit.

I know this, whether a nurse or not, you are an amazing human. And honestly, I can't think of a better thing to be--you are real, you are taking risks, and that, Erin, is powerful! I am proud of you for putting yourself out there and trying! That takes guts!
