When patients ask how they can get healthier:

When one of your friends casually says they are thinking about getting into nursing because- hey- you did it- and you get 4 days off a week



Thank you for making light of my career.  I would like to think nursing is a calling, not a back up plan for life.

The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.

The artwork is too great not to reblog. 

Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.

That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.

One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Han Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.

Everyone needs to have an off the grid moment during the day where they are able to just escape from the outside world. NO TWITTER, NO FACEBOOK, NO CELLPHONES, NO INSTAGRAM, etc….. Just take sometime to yourself to enjoy just being, whatever that means to you, I have learn that so many people are afraid of silence because it forces them to hear the honest thoughts they have been trying to run from. I dare you to take this challenge and see what happens :)
