I won a giveaway for nursing students & nurses. I was so excited because 1)I rarely win anything 2)a bunch of the stuff I actually need 3)it's awesome to get fun mail to shake things up in my day a bit.
|This is what I saw when I opened the box.|
|Goodies for me!|
Inside the box was a plastic tote with an insulated water cup, waterproof watch, beaded lanyard in my 2 favorite colors--black & purple, an awesome mirrored tin, foot balm, hand balm, stethoscope clip that says "be nice to me, I dispense the happy pills", bodily fluid-stain remover, 3-pack of pretty socks, 6-pack of cute nursing socks.
|So much fun!|
It was a great little pick me up gift along with an encouraging note about the hard work nurses do & appreciating it. I wasn't exactly looking forward to next semester. I feel so burnt out & ready to just be done. Something about this box full of goodies made me so happy & I'm excited & focused again.
A little surprise gift in the mail was all it took to remind me what I'm doing & why I'm doing it. Nursing school is not easy & most days you really have to search to find the fun, but it's all worth it in the end. I hope. It's what they keep telling me anyway.
Thank you, Scrubs Magazine, for putting me back on track & getting me back to motivated!
