Happy Thanksgiving! from one nurse to another nurse. Have you started thinking about your 2007 Resolutions and Goals? I have and I am looking forward to 2007 because 2006 was a good year for me personally and professionally.
The highlight of 2006 was being in business 5 years. I started my law and consulting practices in 2001 and business has increased steadily each year. I originally thought it would be my consulting practice that blossomed; it hasn't but that may change in 2007. Originally I saw myself providing healthcare consulting services to healthcare organizations in my consulting firm, but that has changed also.
My law practice has blossomed and provided me with lots of opportunities to connect with individual nurses and build a niche law practice tailored to nurses and nursing issues. I love what I do for a living! How about you?
The low point of the year occurred recently when my 5 year old nephew was diagnosed with ASD and Pulmonary Hypertension in October. He was hospitalized for 5 days in November. He is currently taking five medications several times a day and even a former pediatric nurse, its hard to adjust to the chronic nature of his illness.
On a lighter note, my 17 year old son received his driving license, has a vehicle, and was hired this week at Target, pending a negative drug screen and background check. He is a senior in high school.
My 4 toy poodles are doing okay. Still healthy, untamed, and happy.
Now if I could just get my son motivated to take the SAT and ACT..
