Little tiny thing, I took a leap and emailed this lady asking about addictions nursing, and she already emailed me back. Oh gosh, I feel so encouraged. I've applied for at least four different jobs in New Jersey, and everyone responds, "Contact us when you get your nursing license." Really, it hasn't been a big deal because the amount of work this semester has been pretty overwhelming. I probably should focus on graduating first.
Yet bless this woman's heart. She said, "I'm thrilled you reached me."
I've been having a rough time, and that really brought me a big, huge smile. Even more than being encouraged, I'm reminded that's the type of person I want to be. I want to take that time to help people. I'm not very good at it right now. I've been pretty self-focused.
Seriously, even if she doesn't help me find a job, she's been a blessing.
