Proud To Get A Pat On The Back

It feels like only yesterday by Dad took me to my first day of practice as a student nurse, that's why it's hard to believe that today, four years on, I am finished my practice.

Many emotions actually ran thorugh my mind today. I had thought all week how excited and happy I would be for it to be over, but as I left today I couldn't help but feel a little nostalgic.

For some today will seem no different to any other day. No, I am not quite finished my degree, or ready to graduate, but one big chapter of my life has closed. As I left the hospital today and cycled home I couldn't help but think of all the people who got me this far, whether financially or emotionally, without whom this bump in my life would have definitely been Mount Everest. So to them, and you know who you all are, Thank You <3

After receiving many lovely messages, two definitely stand out to me. Both of my parents messaged me to tell me how proud they are of me for coming this far. And for the first time in my life I am confident to say "I am proud of myself", and this is one of the most wonderful feelings in the world. In these last three and a half years I have achieved much more then I ever believed I could.

From here the only way is up, of that I am determind. This star will always shoot for the moon, and if I fail then I will still be proud to say I was a shooting star, not just one that twinkles and dwindles out.
