Frontline Healthcare Workers

I read in the news that being a COVID nurse is like seeing a building on fire. Instead of running away, we run into that fire, forgetting about ourselves and risking our lives to save others.

This is the situation of many other healthcare workers out there.

We show up even though we’re tired. We provide care to our patients even though we’re missing our families.

Why?

Because we know that our patients are also dreaming of returning to their loved ones. There are families out there who are waiting for my patients to recover, and I know it is my duty to help in that recovery.

Once again, I’m sending my prayers and good thoughts to all healthcare workers out there!

This is still our fight, and I am proud to be a part of it!

Thoughts on Parenting

”You never know how much your parents loved you until you have a child to love.”

-Jennifer Hudson

I love the message ”be kind to others’

But sometimes you also need to be kind to yourself.

Kids like copying what their parents are doing.

They’ll dance with you, pretend to be on the phone talking to someone, and they’ll pretend to cook a nice dish in the kitchen.

”Because I always see mommy/daddy do it!”

But did you know that they’ll also copy how you’re taking care of yourself?

They’ll remember those moments and hold them in their memories when they’re older. This is why it’s important to show kids that you know how to relax, so they can also be the kind of people who know how to relax when they become adults.

If they always see you stressed and you don’t do anything to make yourself feel better, there’s a chance they’ll be the same way.

So be kind to yourself, parents.

When your kids see you being kind to yourself, your kids will also be kind to themselves.

Two Frogs and the Power of Words

Hi, everyone! I just wanted to share this story. It’s about two frogs and the power of words.

Sometimes, we don’t pay much attention to what we say.

But the truth is that our words are more powerful than we think. Our words can turn normal individuals into presidents, and our words can turn heroes into cowards.

Take time to read this, and I promise you that your perspective on words will change.

”A group of frogs was traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frog kept telling them to stop, that they were good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jump even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, ” Did you not hear us?” The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.”

This story teaches two lessons:

  1. There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day.
  2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to bring them down.

Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your path. The power of words… it is sometimes hard to understand that an encouraging word can go such a long way, Anyone can speak words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in difficult times. Special is the individual who will take the time to encourage another.

The Power

Do you believe in the law of attraction?

If so, you should definitely read this book ”The Power” by Rhonda Byrne.

”When you are on a feeling frequency of love, then only people who are on the same feeling frequency as you are can come into you life.”

You really do attract great things as long as you believe that you deserve great things.

Happy Thursday reading, everyone!

Thank you to all Front liners

Roughly 200,000 nurses in the US are Filipinos!

Imagine that number. Filipino and Fil-am nurses are risking their lives every day providing care to so many people in the United States alone.

And with the coronavirus pandemic, healthcare workers are put in the spotlight, getting rightful recognition for years of serving this country’s health care system.

There are so many brave heroes fro the Philippines, and again I just want to thank every one of you for your service to the people of the world, especially these tough times.

Scenario of a Nurse

Exhaustion. Teamwork. Struggle. Celebration.

As a COVID-19 nurse, I’ve experienced a lot of ups and downs helping patients who have contracted the virus.

I’ve seen death and recovery. I’ve witnessed extreme sadness and profound joy.

The work isn’t easy, but someone has to be on the frontline. Someone has to give these people a fighting chance.

This is why I risk my life…so I can save the lives of others.

”NURSES ARE THE HOSPITALITY OF THE HOSPITAL.”

As Nurses

We go above and beyond the call of duty.

We do what nobody else will do.

We stay when everyone else leaves.

We provide care when nobody else can.

And at the end of the day,

we go home to our families with our bodies tired,

but our hearts filled with purpose.

Nurse On Duty!
