Moxie is “that intangible thing”, that heartfelt, courageous knowing, that allows us to leap with trust, believing that the outcome will be as it is intended. Rooted in the heart, Moxie is what answers the call of a challenge by standing tall and saying, “I can make it happen”. Good Heart + Courageous Spirit = Good Moxie
By answering the question: “How did you get here from there?” we can help others overcome their fears and take their own leaps. Through healthy eating, yoga, and a deep spiritual experience in meditation, Deena found courage, daring and spirit (Moxie) to remove anxiety and bring into her life love and purpose.
Our third date was at the Autobahn, ripping around that road course in the ‘65 Tempest. I remember closing my eyes at one point to combat nausea and thinking to myself that “all four tires are not on the road right now”. We have a large canvas photo of that day on the wall of our foyer. (It shows that, in fact, all four tires were NOT making contact with the road. A testament to the stiffness of the Schwartz chassis!) 😜 🏎 Almost eight years later, I got to ride in his Z06 around Road America with my eyes wide open and an ear-to-ear smile 😃. (I’ve learned to plant my feet and hold on to the seat to avoid the queeze).🤢 ❤️ I have the best husband and am having so much fun living life with him! ❤️ #ilovemyhusband ... See MoreSee Less
This Peace Lily plant was given to me as a graduation gift of sorts in 1993 by a few of the weekend night shift CCU nurses at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood , IL. They gave it to me planted in a bedpan 😁 on my last day there as a nurses aide. 👩🎓 I graduated with a BSN from the UIC College of Nursing and went on to work in the MICU/CCU at Northwestern Hospital, but I never forgot the experiences that I had @Loy ola_medicine. 🙏🏻 I am forever grateful to two Loyola nurses who put me on the path to becoming a #crna. Roselyn Krawczyk took a chance and gave me a night-weekend job that made it possible for me to go right into an ICU as a newly graduated RN. Mary Bondmass ( @unlvnursing )took me under her wing to teach me things I could have never learned in any book. 💦 Every time I give this old plant a drink of water, I am reminded of the enthusiasm and leadership of these two nurses who impacted my early days as a nurse. 🌱 26 years later, this plant has moved along with me, growing, blooming, almost dying a couple of times from being re-potted, transplanted or being sometimes neglected. 🙏🏻 I still love what I do and have been blessed to have learned so much from so many who have mentored me along the way. 👩⚕️ Becoming a nurse was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. 🌺 Every plant in my house has a story. This simple old plant sits quietly atop my desk, next to my Pa’s old medical bag, thriving in its sunny, private little spot. ❤️ #nurseanesthetist #nurseanesthesiologist #rns #aprn #nursingleadership #proudtobeanurse #neverjustanurse
Popped up to play with the “new” autopilot since I had this whole gorgeous morning free! So good to see friends today and get to fly with my favorite co-pilot. The autopilot flew us to two VORs and held us perfectly straight and level, even through a little bumpy air. Got back in time to park, get the grill going and hang in the hangar listening to the birds and the rain ☔️. Next on the wish list for the plane is an engine monitor... I’ll be shopping for one at OshKosh this year. ✈️ Happy Memorial Day 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸 ❤️ ✈️ 🇺🇸 #cessna182 #momandsongoals #stearman #blueskiesandtailwinds @ Galt Airport ... See MoreSee Less
I don’t want to start a political debate, but I saw this and had to share with my fellow CRNAs, NPs and APRN colleagues and anyone who has an interest in healthcare. Make no mistake, if we do not define our profession for ourselves, someone else will (oh, and they’re trying). And if you’ve ever had an anesthetic, there’s a pretty good chance a CRNA cared for you directly from the beginning to the end. If you live in a rural area? 💯 Military? CRNAs were there on the battlefield.
This is from the ASA, circa 2012, on how to best refer to us as to minimize our role in the OR. Sad and funny at the same time. What a tragic waste of time and energy when we’re all really trying to do the same work of caring for people in the most safe and effective way. Silly. 👩⚕️ 👨⚕️ #crna #nurseanesthesiologist #nurseanesthetist #aprn #nursepractioner ... See MoreSee Less
