Hello Thursday! & Hello to another Coffee Talk. Let's get to it!
FEELING: WARNING: This is sappy. ha! Tomorrow is my birthday & I can't seem to stop thinking about all that I have accomplished in the last 28 years of my life. Getting to where I am certainly hasn't been an easy road, but I am so grateful for everything I have done, all the people I have met & the things I have learned along the way. Growing up I thought I had everything planned out. I was going to marry my high school sweet heart, go to grad school - become a Physician Assistant (!!), travel the world, & have a couple babies all before 28. Life took a different path & even though I sometimes think about what it would be like to already be married & have a couple babies, I have to keep reminding myself that God has a plan for me & that everything works out just the way it is suppose too. I love my life & everyone in it. I wouldn't want to do life with anyone else then Nicholas & I can't wait to see what the future holds for the two of us.
THINKING ABOUT: Work can be pretty exhausting & there are some days where I feel like I fail majorly as a provider. I am constantly griping at myself for not knowing EVERYTHING but I have to keep reminding myself that I am not suppose to be a know it all & that it's ok that I'm not perfect. It is really overwhelming when a patient comes in with a rash I have never seen or array of symptoms that are all over the place or I can't remember the exact dosage on the medication I want to prescribe. These are just some of the things I get frustrated with and it really takes a toll on me mentally and emotionally. I am really trying my best to make sure I am consistently educating myself on things I may not know just so that I can be more prepared when I see my patients but I have to remember that it isn't going to happen over night. I have to take it one day at a time. These next four days off are much needed. Next Tuesday will be a fresh start.
LISTENING TO: N introduced me to X Ambassadors & I keep listening to the song Gorgeous on repeat. It is SOOOO good! Give it a listen if you haven't heard it before.
WATCHING: We have been sucked into the ... Bachelor in Paradise. I use to be one of those that watched every single season of The Bachelor + Bachelorette, but that has not been the norm over the last several years. But this season of the Bachelor in Paradise is hilarious & super entertaining. Clare is talking to animals .. which is totally normal for her & Mikey T is soooo into himself that he can't see straight. & let's not forget Ashley S. dear lord this girl ... she finally make one logical comment last night WITHOUT crying. And sweet Tenley, I really do hope she finds love at some point in her life. With that being said, N + I are eagerly waiting for next Sunday/Monday night to get our BIP fix. Any of you watching this seasons BIP, if so tell me what you think!
EATING: Gummy vitamins. That's right ... I have tried to do the whole vitamin pills thing & I fail miserably every single time. A couple weeks ago N + I purchased some vitamins and stuff through GNC's website since they were having a big sale & one of the things I got was Calcium + Vitamin D gummies. I have not missed a single day, which is a rarity for me. So I decided to exchange the womens daily vitamins for gummies & I am already on board. Trust me, gummies are NOT for kids!
READING: Lately I have been stuck reading buzzfeed on my way to work in the mornings. It takes absolutely NO thought process and gives me a little giggle or two. Thanks to Faith I have found a new app that I love.
THANKFUL FOR: Quality time with my other half has meant more to me lately then ever. He really is the light to my every day & I love how he always knows what to say to put me back together. I don't know what I did to deserve him.
LOVING: A few weeks back I went to the eye doctor because this girl finally got health insurance. I haven't had my eyes checked in almost 5 years and since I stare at computers all day & am reading constantly I have been getting daily headaches, migraines and my vision has been blurry at times. Much to my surprise, I was told that my distance vision is impaired and I have a small astigmastism while reading things up close. I ended up getting two pair of glasses & am LOVING them both. It has taken some getting use too & I am still getting headaches occasionally, due to the fact that I am not use to wearing things on my nose constantly but overall I am getting less migraines. So much happier! & cute glasses don't hurt either.
Now tell me, how has your week been! Share the details! xo
