Children have such a beautiful way of looking at the world. My 8-year-old niece, Reese, wakes up every morning fully expecting to have the time of her life. She handles everything that comes her way with alacrity – even when she doesn’t get the ice cream or Hatchimal she wants.
You and I are no longer eight, and somewhere along our journey to adulthood we may have lost that childhood optimism. If you find yourself disliking your nursing career, or dealing with a health or family issue, you might also notice you’re increasingly waking up to just another day that’s not much different from the day before (and the day before that).
Tatum Thatcher’s quote, “Always be ready to have the time of your life” is one of my all-time favorite quotes because it simply and succinctly reminds us of the ability to change our day (and ultimately our life) by changing our expectations and perceptions.
Be an 8-year-old again! Always be ready to have the time of your life and, more often than not, you will.
Success Is Yours!
