I solemnly swear

I solemnly swear that I am up to change.

It’s that day of the year where people make resolutions. I can tell you by mid February the pool is again half empty instead of full like at the beginning of the January.

For many years I’ve just picked a word to focus on for the year. Then choices and opportunities were measured against it.

So change is in the air for me. 11 shifts left in my full time hospital career. What will February onward bring? Will I flounder from project to project? Will I stay driven and focused? Will I …..???

What I can say for sure is that I will solemnly swear to embrace life. To enjoy sunsets, dog walks, giggles with little girls and snuggles with baby boys. I solemnly swear to appreciate my good health and work towards keeping it. To work on the important relationships in my life and give to the community at large as well. I solemnly swear to take the trip, eat desserts and push myself to be the best I can be. There will be down days and off times because this is real life. So unlike my socks, I solemnly swear to be the best version of myself that I can be.

Except maybe once or twice when I might just get up to no good! Wait and see.



I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.
