Health and wellness
I've gotten a lot of great responses to the new site! Thanks guys and keep it coming!
This week I'm starting a new book. I'm really excited about it, and hopefully with all the research I've been doing on it over the last year, it'll be informative. I realize that with all the info that's out there, anyone can look things up whenever they have something going on that's concerning, but I also know that sometimes you just want it all in one place, in front of you, so you don't have to go searching.
As I've said previously, I have four children, and sometimes, a lot of times, things get crazy and overwhelming. My oldest son is going to EMT school, he started about a month ago, and is really loving it. Halfway through the courses the students have to do clinicals in order to take the exams and get through the school. What clinicals are is basically you have to take a day here and there to either ride on an ambulance for 12 hours or spend 8 hours in a trauma unit at the hospital. Over the weekend he spent 8 hours at the hospital helping out in the trauma unit. I really wasn't sure how he would like it, as he's very young and because it can be really insane. Well, when he got home he was really excited and shared some stories with me. His eyes were lit up, and even though he spent 8 hours high on adrenaline, watched a woman die, and helped hold down a homeless man to get him to take his meds, he was thrilled. And I was surprised. That's when I realized how much he's grown up. I wasn't much older than him when I started having children, and even then I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life other than have babies. I'm proud of him and glad that even though there's a lot of kids out there that are clueless as to what they want to do with their lives, I think there are just as many that are right on track and are even more successful than I could have ever thought possible for my generation.
That is a side note that I wanted to share with you all. Kids have it tough nowadays also. Lots of stress having to have to be and do and achieve everything so young. Like I said, I was clueless. I think I spent a lot of my time pregnant and sleep deprived with no idea what was next for me. And at the time, it was ok.
Kids today are amazing in their own right. I cheer them on and admire them in all that they have to deal with, with social media and a very 'in your face' perspective on how things 'should be' for them. Whatever they become, whatever they decide to do and the path they take, if they can make it through this incredible and at times difficult generation, I applaud them. .. I do anyway. And send lots of blessings.
Tell me your thoughts on this.
Have a healthy and happy week!
