I am a 23 year old, newly graduated with a BscN. I am passionate about change. In myself or in others, I believe that there is always room for improvement and I never want to become complacent. Even still, there is nothing more valuable then celebrating, finding delight in even the simplest moments, the smallest accomplishments. I never have enough time for my hobbies, whether it’s sports/working out, reading, cooking, volunteering, thrifting, playing piano, singing or hanging out with my family and friends I sometimes find it hard to fit it all in. But really, who doesn’t? At the end of the day, I want to be the type of woman, Christian, friend, nurse, athlete, cook… the type of person who never settles and always inspires those around her. I want to be real, honest and faithful.
Be the person that leaves them wishing.
I am a Christian, and as such I desire to be someone who loves God and loves others. It’s that simple. I still have a long way to go, but I desire to be more like Jesus, I want to be humble, forgiving and honest. I do not believe it is my place to judge others. I believe that the God who created the universe loves me, it might sound crazy to you, but that’s the best part about it. It is crazy. And overwhelming, and it drives me to aspire to be better.
I love being active! Sometimes it feels like my skeletal system presents problem after problem, but I guess it just forces me to be creative and find new workouts which aren’t going to stress my joints! I love running, but only outside, in nice weather. I love lifting,but I’d rather be outside playing a sport than inside of a gym any day.
My body has a love/hate relationship with food. I love food; from preparation to consumption, I am a happy camper. However, I recently underwent blood testing to discover that I have immune reactions to eggs, gluten & wheat (especially whole wheat), kidney beans, and on a more minor note, cranberries :(. I was also diagnosed with lactose intolerance as a child, so suffice to say… my diet is quite different from most peoples! Though it’s not ideal, it has forced me outside of my comfort zone… I was an insufferably picky child who has been turned into a vegetable lover! Trust me, it’s possible! Even though I know what makes me sickest, my body still tends to be a bit cranky at times, and finding out what foods fuel my body the best in an ongoing process!
I hope that my blog will be full of humour, inspiration and encouragement no matter what stage of life you’re in!
