I am in love with my new life so far.
Today was my first day of work. I think I'm going to really enjoy working at this new job. I am working in a healthcare facility; it's a skilled nursing facility for short term and long term rehab for older patients that have just gone through some type of orthopedic surgery (usually). Basically my job is to meet with doctors and case workers to persuade them to send their patients to our facility. I met the majority of our current patients today and there are so many wonderful and exciting personalities that are staying in the facility and I can't wait to get to know them better. I also can't wait to meet the new people that will be coming into the facility in the next couple months. I am so excited and hopeful that I can really make things happen and do a great job! My next step is to learn medical terminology though. :) All the people I work with are medical professionals and they know their stuff and what they're talking about. It's so different from working with sales guys that will just say whatever and make up whatever they need to in order to make a sale. I actually felt intimidated a few different times today listening to people in the office talk to one another and to patient's families. My team REALLY knows their stuff. I love love love it; and I need to learn these things too so I don't have to keep faking it (I'm not faking it now but I don't want to have to ever fake it).
I went to yoga after work too. I cussed my way through yoga is more like it. I haven't been to yoga in over 3 weeks. During the session, the instructor kept talking about 'breathing it out' and 'letting it go'...and I tried my best to let the stress of the last few weeks go. I really really want to move on and not hold any anger or frustration in my heart from the past. I know there are some of you that will say it's healthy to feel those things- and I agree. But it's not healthy to harbor those feelings either. I have felt them- now it's time to move forward and let them go. Those feelings have also affected me physically. Why is it that when I get stressed, I tend to NOT work out instead of work out extra hard? Working out is so good for you and helps your body to relieve stress...so why do I stop when I need it most? Needless to say- I have some pain and soreness to get rid of. :)
Afterwards I went grocery shopping and came home and made pancakes in my little apartment. Now I'm watching a TV show I pre-recorded (because I want to). Have I mentioned that I love my little life in LA?
