Four days in to my new life as a Care Support worker (Nurse) wasn’t going well. Basically, I don’t have the strength to man-handle people on their beds to wash them etc.
On the first day I found it very emotional. I realise that we all take advantage of the freedom we have in our lives. Most of us have no health issues and can get up and go for a walk when ever we feel like it. Many of the people this particular Homecare Services take care of do not have that option but are relying on someone to do just simple tasks for them…
I met a lovely Christian lady who knew someone that I know and she only had the use of her right hand and can just about move her head. She was always very bright and cheerful and intelligent. I could feel myself getting quite tearful as I could empathise how frustrating it must be for a bright minded person to be trapped inside a body that can’t function.
With only the use of one arm she was keen to get onto her lap-top and communicate with her friends via email and with the use of her one arm could use the phone to call out.
I don’t know anything about MS but have since found this page on Facebook –
I love “Technology” – I would like to put a project together and raise funds to create applications to help people with MS and other disabilities.
This would be a good purpose that i could give my God given skills to accomplish something that would be of benefit to a great number of people, so it is important for me to realise that in my own strength I can do nothing, I need to rely on the Grace of God to be lead to the work that he needs me to accomplish…
God will help you in your trials and struggles. He knows the people that you need to help you and the resources you need to get the job done and when we ask him, he will provide them. If we are open to see, we can see God’s hand at work in what ever we are going through today.
Struggles don’t go away, but if we can alter our mindset to the way we see them, not be too passive, but to confront these situations.
I have had a very painful hand for the past couple of months, I have had prayer for it and it has eased up but recently I have been working very hard and I come to realise that it must be repetitive strain with using my USB Mouse. Today, the Mouse is not working and I have had to result to using the square mouse or what ever you might call it on my laptop which previously I gave up with as it was too slow. Probably for the best as I don’t want to be crippled for life, so you could say that in this situation God was moving as he showed me a better way to work.
In order to recover at a physical or emotional level I need to maintain my spiritual level.’
Daily prayer and a heartfelt attitude of thankfulness is a necessity to keep in God’s presence and draw my strength from Him enabling me to be equal to the challenges I face on any given day.
Spiritual roots capable of drawing in the ways and strength of the Lord give potential for success.
A daily mindset is to believe in my own potential, make plans and set achievable goals to undertake each week.
I am involved in a few different industrial sectors and in order to make them all income related streams I need to be active in all of them on a weekly basis.
The beginning of the year is like a new page, a new start in life. I have briefly looked back and reflect on my past endeavors and decide to do better this year.
Ending last year I started to write about my daily strategy. http://dailyramblingsofanetworkingpro.blogspot.com/ On a working basis it is important to me to demonstrate my ability to be visible on the Internet as this is my main core service that I offer to my clientele – “Have to Walk the Talk” fortunately last year I undertook some work in my sector that gave me some additional training that I am now able to apply to my own marketing endeavors and this is helping me to create a product that I can sell to my new clients.
