Pediatric Critical Care Nursing ~ A Profession that Provides Emotional and Physical Healing 
Article Comments added by: M.B.Varville-Rodriguez


Note: a variation of this post was published 11/27/2016 and is still relevant.
It covers a topic that has arisen this weekend, so I decided to edit and share it again.
We never know when something we say or do will have a lasting effect. Sometimes, it's
important to remind ourselves that our role is not to become recognized for those moments,
but to live with intent that it could make a difference. Keep writing your stories!



I have the honor of reading the most incredible stories thanks to Twitter, Face Book, and the many writers I meet courtesy of our internet connections. These are the individuals who inspire me and ignite the fire that keeps my writer's soul warm and open to whatever I need to share. I found this article on Twitter. It was published by The Washington Post.
 I hope you will take a moment to read it.

This article, written by a Pediatric Nurse, is a great reminder to all of us that we have important work to do today.  Although Mondays can be difficult, we can choose to see it as another opportunity to make a difference in:


1. How we interact with each other.
2. The attitude we take to our places of employment.
3. The meetings (both scheduled and spontaneous)where we will 
     use our voices for positive communication.
4. Our ability to collaborate in a loving manner.


Even when our situations seem grim and filled with unanswered questions, there is a way to manage the emotions that often threaten our personal wellness.  Sometimes, individuals are put into our path to heighten our awareness and encourage us to make necessary changes.  We can either choose to ignore those cues or embrace them for the inspirations they create.

TEN THINGS A WRITER MOM NEEDS 2019 (Article #1)
Written by: M.B.Varville-Rodriguez

ONE
Comfy Shoes and the ability to Move Around



It's important to have mobility so you can change scenery, direction, and position. A writer thrives when given the opportunity to look at the world in a new light. Allow your feet to experience support and comfort with these Tiosenbon Knitted Sneakers and sneak away from home for a few moments.  Allow those thoughts to process while you go for a walk or travel in comfort.  Use the links in this article or just click on the pics to purchase your own!

TWO
A cup of hot tea


Have something beautiful available as you make your hot tea. Enjoy a soothing beverage while you write and spill the tea. I have loved the sensation of brewing herbal tea and sipping this heart warming, soul softening liquid since childhood.  I loved it when my mother would bring out her beautiful ceramic teapot, steep a few bags of chamomile and Lipton's black tea, and pour a mug of this brew with some sugar and (if we had a tummy ache) a teaspoon of Christian Brother's Brandy. Always made me and my siblings feel better.  There's something incredibly comforting in the ritual of sipping (and spilling) tea.  Here's a treasure for you to begin your own traditions.

THREE
A Cool Logo



So admittedly, I am still searching for a design I can settle on. In the interim, I am having fun as I try out different logos; allowing myself time to be creative.  It's a process.  Here's a reasonably priced company that often offers discounts and is willing to work with you to develop a concept for you website.

FOUR
Pain Management for Periods


Parenting and writing are challenging enough without the added stress of painful periods every month. (Sometimes more than once a month.) I recently discovered this strategy and definitely wished it had been available earlier in my feminine journey. It's always best practices to have this conversation with a trusted health care professional.  Having multiple pain relief options that minimize the risk of side effects can be a relief, especially when you have a busy schedule and deadlines to accommodate.  LIVIA can help you live the lifestyle you desire.

FIVE
A safe, ergonomic way to carry baby
(without killing your back!)

Sometimes my best ideas show up while I am "momming."  Sometimes my best "momming" happens when I am looking for a way out of my writer's block. Getting out of the house and out of my head works well for everyone!  Here is an ergonomically designed infant carrier that will give you the freedom to work outside of home on your next writing assignments (the brain storming part) while enjoying time with your little one.  Take a walk, go to the store and people watch (great place to get ideas for your characters), or hold baby while you type out a few lines at home on your computer.  The MiaMily carrier has what you need! You'll fall in love with all the options while you and your baby experience adventures near and far.

Seven
Take care of yourself too. Make time to exercise!


Be active! Sometimes it's hard to schedule in a workout when you're busy caring for baby, planning and writing your next article, and managing all the responsibilities that go along with these tasks.  I always say I'm raising my human babies along with my literary babies.  Is it possible to balance those responsibilities? Yes. Is it easy? No. No it isn't.  But you can make sure you have access to the resources necessary for your success.  Here's another strategy for taking your brain -storming sessions on the road.  You and your baby will love spending time together as you travel in style with Summer Infant strollers.  


EIGHT
Create a kick ass office space


Having a dedicated home office where you can work on your projects will set the stage for a successful home business.  Keeping track of supplies (for you and for your children's projects) creates a focused space where chaos is minimized and productivity is maximized.  Find your peace and create a writer's world that highlights your bad ass mom skills too. This chair is advertised for "gamers" but who says it has to be for video games?  You decide how to get your game on. Write and create in comfort and style with this beauty!

Sleep! Tired Writer Moms need SLEEP!
                                                            
Writers and Moms have a lot in common. We tend to stay up way too late and many of us are missing out in the "good sleep" department. Writer Moms have even greater challenges when it comes to acquiring the best sleep possible. We often try to get our writing done when the kids finally get to bed, and get so caught up in our characters that we forget to go to sleep.  Instead of allowing ourselves to get sucked into the wormhole of parenting and writing, how about making sleep so comfortable and enticing that we schedule it into our routine?  And stick to it!  Here's a couple of options that will have you looking forward to settling in at night and setting some much needed boundaries.

Step one: Get a WEIGHTED Blanket!
It has an amazing, calming effect on the body.

SPONSORED by STELLA & DOT





Today's Goals:
Written by: M.B.Varville-Rodriguez

S - Searching for new ways to accomplish tasks
 can help remove the burden of boredom 
when it comes to repetitious jobs.
(Like cleaning the darn house.) 


A - Accepting that some things
 are just not as important as we thought 
gives us permission to let go 
and enjoy what really matters.
 (Like spending fun time with family 
versus making sure the floor boards are spotless 
or the stove burners sparkle.)


T - Treasuring the moments we have 
with our children while they are still young 
is a wonderful way to build memories. 
Sit down with them on the floor,
 blow bubbles, play with playdoh, 
and laugh at silly jokes.


U - Understanding that perfection is out of reach 
and does not need to be on the short list of weekend goals 
will free us to experience other adventures.


R - Remembering what it was like when we were children 
can provide the insights necessary
 to embrace our own children's need
 for activities and parent time.


D - Directing a few planned moments or surprises 
can enhance the moods and family bonding. 
(A movie, trip to the park, or a special meal 
we create together are a few ideas.)


A - Admitting that we need some scheduled alone time
 to replenish our reserves of patience and inner peace 
is an important component toward improving our relationships. 
When we are worn out and feel
 that we cannot give anymore, 
everyone feels it.
 It's okay to take a few moments for yourself. 


Y - YES does not have to be a first response. 
If saying yes makes your heart race, your stomach churn,
 and your head ache, then it's a sign
 you need to consider more "NO" responses 
and measure what energy you are able to offer.







Wishing all of you a weekend of adventures, 
solutions to your challenges, 
and answers to your prayers.
