So let me share about my job real quick... I get asked so many times why I don’t do 3-12s as a nurse.
This is why— I work for a community health center that serves the underserved populations in Southern California. Primary care is something that just doesn’t happen here. We wait until it’s bad then go to the ER. The disease process isn’t slowed or prevented, it’s last resort treatments. Our patients don’t have access to care if we aren’t open. Some are illiterate, have multiple health concerns, no transportation, extremely limited income, and are still grateful for any kind of care they can get. They aren’t demanding, if anything they move mountains to show up. They lose a day of work to be seen once they know that we are rooting for them. Once they realize that someone truly cares for them.
This week I got to spend 3 days in a very rural clinic of ours, and I was SO incredibly humbled with the kindness, character, and integrity of our patients and staff there. It reminded me of WHY I was called to nursing.
God’s plan for me has been one of many twists and turns, but my heart has always been to take care of others... And this view on the way to work yesterday... in the middle of farmland with no clean drinking water... God reminded me of my WHY.
What’s your WHY? For work, fitness, what is your motivation?
