Lately, I've been wondering if I am satisfied with the direction my career is going? There's days when I don't mind where I'm at currently and there are other times when I really could care less. I want to be at that point where no matter the circumstance, I am absolutely loving what I am doing.
Nursing can get a little dark and dreary at times especially when you see all the suffering going on around you. It gets a little depressing. I don't want to get to that point where I am so desensitized to the suffering that everything becomes so routine. I need to sit and re-evaluate.
On a much happier note, summer is just around the corner! I am going to be working throughout the summer but just the thought of sunny days makes me happy! Wherever, you are, I hope you're all having a fabulous day. Thank God that Spring has sprung!

He showed me again,
In the most vivid sunrise,
With hues of blues and oranges,
Shades of Yellows and reds.
It was as if He was saying
"Gently, my love beckons, yet firmly holds you still"
Until I was awash in the warm glow of that sunrise!
Mine, what content!

Happy Independence Day to all the Ghanaians out there!
"At long last, the battle has ended,
and thus Ghana our Beloved country is free forever"
- Nkrumah, 6th March, 1957
I love how he urged people to change their attitude and their minds. Being held captive or being ruled for a long time seems to make it difficult for people to break free from that bondage and be pace setters. I hope Nkrumah's message on that night continues to resound in our hearts.
God bless our homeland Ghana,
And make our nation great and strong,
Bold to defend forever
The cause of Freedom and of Right.
Fill our hearts with true humility
Make us cherish fearless honesty,
And help us to resist oppressors' rule
With all our will and might evermore.
God Bless y'all!
