Sorry for the lack of blog posts recently girlies, I've had a very hectic and exciting couple of weeks.
Most of you will know that I was at university training to be a nurse...well the day has finally come that I have graduated and am now a real qualified NURSE!! Now I don't mean to blow my own trumpet but I am so very proud of myself as I finally have my dream job and have achieved something that no one can ever take away from me. I've put in so much hard work and am extremely glad that it has paid off.
Throughout my training there were times that I thought nursing wasn't the career for me and wanted to give up but there were two reasons as to why I continued and am where I am today. I'm not one for mushy gushy speeches and I don't want this to sound like an Oscar winning speech but I really do want to thank my dad and my beautiful mum who is in heaven ♥ (Queue the life story ha)!
When I was fourteen months old and my sister was three years old, my mum tragically passed away after a two year battle with a rare heart disease.There's not a day that goes by where I don't think of mum and wish that she were still here, as I was so young when she passed away I have no memory of her, but I have pictures and stories from friends and family that prove she was a beautiful person inside and out! I hope that as I achieved my dream job she is proud of me and I'd love to be able to tell her that she has been my inspiration and how much I miss her!
My dad is the second reason I am as happy as I am now, he has brought my sister and I up single handily from a very young age and I think he has done a fantastic job, even if I do say so myself haha!! I would never have been able to achieve what I have so far without him always putting my sister and I first. I am so grateful as I know so many men that say they wouldn't have been able to cope and I am very proud to say that he is my dad.
I have to admit that I shed a tear writing this post, becoming a nurse means more to me than just a job as I have had the chance to prove that no matter what your family circumstances are, you can make something of your life and do something that not only will make others proud of you but will make you proud of yourself!
Hope you've all had a fantastic couple of weeks xxx
