What I learned in the last two months…

It’s been two months since I last wrote about my work and the learning experiences I’ve earned. Probably because it’s been a very trying and scary two months…but there have also been many roses amongst the thorns.
 
So what exactly have I learned? Let’s see…   
 
 
 
  • No matter how hard you try, how hard you work, or how much time you spend, you can’t make everyone happy…that includes family and friends, unfortunately.
  • A bloody nose should stop with consistent pressure. If it doesn’t, or flows like someone opened a faucet in your head, listen to your body and get to a doctor. It is not just a bloody nose any more. It’s a warning of something far more dangerous.
  • If a former army medic, who is now a registered nurse in the ER, can’t find a vein in your arm, and he starts digging around in you, trying to find one…stop them immediately, and make them try the other arm. If they still can’t get one…insist on getting some help.
  • Sometimes…but only sometimes, I see benefits to renting a home. Like the minute the plumber leaves after writing a check for $5K!
  • Listening is STILL a lost art.
  • Open your eyes. You miss a lot by narrowing your vision.
  • If you ever want to challenge yourself, collaborate with someone. You will learn more about your abilities and be inspired to elevations you never knew you had in you.
  • You can’t tell a book by its cover…but you sure can tell a lot about the author behind it…sadly, there are some very pretentious and conceited covers out there.
  • Finding a good doctor to trust is like finding a good friend. If it doesn’t fit from the start, it isn’t going to get better over time. Move on until you find the right one that is there for YOU.
  • I am not the person I was twenty years ago…thankfully, I’m better.

And who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks? JK. You forgot to add how much you have taught and inspired others over the last two months. You gotta give credit where credit is due. My 2 cents.
