Even when you’re on the road, it’s always important to keep things in perspective.
True wealth is the ability to fully experience life.
– Henry David Thoreau
You are alive
This should be the foundation of your mindset in life, especially if you’re a travel nurse. Even during difficult times, there is always something to appreciate and celebrate in life.
You are able to see the sunrise and the sunset
Whether you work the night shift, or the day shift, seeing the sun rise and set is a wonderous thing to behold.
You are living your dream
As a travel nurse, you’ve taken the plunge and made your dreams come true. Whether it be seeing the world or practicing in top-notch medical facilities, you’re living your dream and that’s something to be proud of.
You have the freedom to choose
It can be easy to forget that you do, in fact, have choices when it comes to life decisions. You can choose where you want to go, what hospital you work in, who you hang out with and how you spend your free time.
You awoke this morning with a roof over your head
This isn’t an option for some, but it is a reality for you. You are blessed to have a roof over your head, and that can be easy to overlook when life gets busy.
You have the chance to make a difference
As a travel nurse, you’re doing something that really matters in the world.
You are able to hear birds sing and waves crash
This should be taken advantage of on a regular basis. Taking the time to take in nature can help to clear your head and create moments of peace, no matter where you are.
You have the power to define who you are
As a travel nurse, you have the opportunity to shape how people see you and what they think when they hear your name.
You have the chance to meet new people every day
As a travel nurse, you never know who you may encounter on any given day. You can make connections with colleagues as well as patients and their families, and these relationships are often the most meaningful ones of your life.
You have someone with whom to reminisce about ‘the good old days’
You may not have a lot of friends who are in the same stage of life as you, but you do have the people with whom to share your travel nurse experiences. It’s always nice to know that there’s someone out there who’s been through the same thing and can relate to where you are right now.
You have access to clean drinking water
You may take it for granted, but having access to clean drinking water is a blessing that many don’t have. Being able to hydrate with safe, healthy drinking water is something you can be thankful for.
You can walk outside and feel the breeze through your hair and the sun’s warmth on your skin
No matter where you are, being able to take a break from your hectic schedule and enjoy the outdoors is an amazing experience. Taking time to appreciate nature can help to reset your mindset and restore energy levels.
You have access to medical care
As a travel nurse, you have such an important job in providing quality medical care to those who need it. You can take pride in the fact that you’re making a difference and helping people every day.
You can read
Reading can open up a world of knowledge, entertainment, and inspiration. Reading is an essential skill that you should take advantage of during your travels.
The final word
As a travel nurse, you have the opportunity to experience life in ways that many people never will.
From seeing breathtaking sunrises and sunsets to making meaningful connections with colleagues and patients, there are so many things for which we can all be grateful. We should take advantage of these opportunities by exploring our new surroundings, reading more often, and taking time out of each day to appreciate what nature has to offer us.
Life is precious; make sure you’re living it fully!
