5 Image Quotes to Motivate

Hello Everyone, 🙂

 

I often find myself wanting to motivate myself to keep on going everyday on accomplishing my goals. But I am honestly not perfect and tend to fall into a slump of laziness. Whenever I feel like that I always like to go online and look at picture quotes, and just reading the quote and looking at the picture helps me get back to being motivated in a positive way. I always try to save picture quotes that I find online, that I like and save them for later viewing and reflecting. I hope you find these quotes motivating as I do as well. I know that this July is going to be full of new challenges and adventures for me. I like to keep picture quotes by my side whenever I feel stuck, unmotivated, or feeling doubtful about something I want to do.

The Reality of Being a CNA

Hello Everyone 🙂

I decided to share with you guys about my own experience of working as a CNA, and also to share with you the realities of being a Certified Nurse Assistant. I have heard that the job of being a CNA is undervalued because it is seemed as a job that can be frustrating to do, and honestly it is but it has it’s positives as well.

Being a CNA is a job that honestly requires a lot of patience and willingness to do such a job because you are basically with senior residents 24/7, it is like you are their main caregiver. Another reality about being a CNA is that the assigned residents you get for your shift are your responsibility during your shift to take care of, and trust me when I say that, it is honestly not an easy job to do because I had to learn how to manage my time wisely by seeing which of my assigned residents needed to take their showers, or who needed their vitals done for that day, or which residents are continent and incontinent, so it is a lot of responsibility that falls on you.

Another reality is you have to make sure that your residents are safe at all times, meaning that if a resident is a fall-risk then you as a CNA have to make sure that resident is safe in their wheelchair, or bed at all times during your scheduled shift; you cannot just leave them unattended since it can get you and your job into trouble if one of your residents is fall-risk and gets injured seriously.

While being a CNA can be stressful, frustrating, demanding, and a lot of responsibility, it also has it’s positive’s like I mentioned to you guys earlier in my post. One of them that I like as a CNA is knowing that I am making a resident feel safe and comfortable, and that their needs are met. Another positive that I like about being a CNA is getting positive compliments from the residents about how well I am doing my job in taking care of them, and also interacting with the residents makes my job more meaningful.

I personally never though or considered a job as a CNA before, but I needed to find a job that would help me support myself because I was tired on relying on my parents for anything that I needed, and also because I wanted to be financially independent; so I just decided to take a quick CNA course to get my CNA certification in order to get a job, and so I did and I got a job.

I am not planning on being a CNA for a long time though,  there are a lot of things I want to do in my life.  I am studying Creative Writing because it’s another love that I have. I want to create my own stories and share them with everyone else. I mostly want to write stories for Middle Grade,  and Young Adults. It’s tough growing up because you are trying to find your place in this world. 

Journal Entry #1

Hello Everyone, 🙂

This coming week is going to be a big week for me because I will take my state certification test to become a Certified Nurse Assistant, I know that it’s another goal I have in order to get a job and support myself and my family independently.
I is funny of to think that just last year I would tell my twin sister that I was not interested in learning anything that was medical related, because it just never interested me until now.
Taking CNA classes and doing my internship hours at a long-term care facility has opened my eyes to how rewarding a CNA job can be because it means that I am helping people with disabilities and are in rehabilitation, get well and become independent once more.
Helping the senior residents everyday made me feel like I was making a huge difference in their lifes.
I hope and have faith that I will pass both the skills and the written test this coming Saturday. Everyone who reads this please wish me the best of luck, hopefully I do not get so nervous on the day of the test.

Your friend,

Jasmine

My Writing Goals

Hello Everyone, ☺

As an aspiring Writer, i know that i can tend to not honestly commit myself to maintain a daily writing schedule because of my busy schedule. But lately i have been thinking really deep on coming up with my own plan and goal of finding a way to not loose my way and stay focused everyday on improving and practicing my writing skills. It does not make sense for someone to say that they want to be the greatest writer ever, when in truth they have not taken the time to write, learn, and practice their writing skills.
honestly i want to learn as much as possible by reading alot, and meeting authors, and aspiring writers such as myself. I know that getting as much exposure will help me gain more knowledge in the world of writing.
My goal is to intern and later on get a job as an Editorial Assistant because i have come to realize that it would be another way for my writing to get noticed, and also gain exposure into the publishing business works, since i know that writers also have to know how stories get edited and published.
Writing is what i truly love to do, it is what i have been doing since i was twelve by expressing myself in journals. Writing helps me escape and create a whole new world and characters. Reading is also one of my greatest joys. Reading has helped me understand life better, has served as not only entertainment but also as comfort and purpose.
I do not want to loose track of what i have always loved doing as a hobby first because now i want to do it as a career.
