I have always been somewhat drawn to the different side of things, or the nontraditional style of living
-For instance, I chose not to live on campus during college
-I chose to have a child prior to marriage
-when it was time to marry, we had a destination wedding with an open invite
-right out of nursing school I was able to move right into a specialty that DID not accept new nurses traditionally
- I wear my hair in a nontraditional style
-I have never been into make-up, fancy clothes, or jewelry
-I purchased my dream house under 30
-I have always known exactly what I want for my life and have been able to accomplish everything I decide to do. ( This is because I have always worked from a heart centered space)
Consistent with my personal life, my business has been the same. I chose a non traditional path, a path that is fueled by my hearts desires and not by what is expected. I am proud to be part of two heart centered movements that are changing my life in the most powerful way, as well as the people I serve.
The path I am on is my destiny and just like my history, I have decided to invest in businesses that are not too popular right now. But, I am one of many spreading and informing the masses on what is near and dear to my heart. We were all created to be originals, so why follow the lead? why do what everyone expects you to do? Find what makes you stand out and own it! Be proud of who you are and what makes you different.

It is with great pleasure that I share my review of Lorie Brown's book titled From Frustrated to Fulfilled. This book includes stories from more than 10 nurses sharing their personal journey from frustration to the path of empowerment. I read this book over the course of a few days and felt as though I was listening to stories of nurses I have worked with in my actual nursing practice. I have not met any of the nurse authors in person, but their Nursing journey and path to empowerment resonated so deeply within me. This book included several nurse authors sharing their unique stories, although unique; each nurse was able to share how they were able to become an empowered nurse and take control of both their professional and personal lives. At the end of each chapter, each author shared action steps on becoming an empowered nurse, I was able to jot down my favorite tips from each of the nurses and use the information to continue on my own path to empowerment. I look forward to referencing the advice from this book as I continue on in my nursing career. I would highly recommend this book to any nurse, as I have learned something different from each nurse author.
