I would firstly like to begin by thanking you in all sincerity, for taking the time to read this-I understand life is all consuming, and your personal time is precious, so thank you.

Secondly, I would like to introduce myself.

My name is Nicole, I live in North Queensland, Australia-A beautiful part of the world literally bordered by The Great Barrier Reef and Tropical Rainforest-for this, I am grateful.

I am a nurse.

A profession that has irreversibly changed my perceptions of life in general. It is a career that has tested me, in so many complicated ways and has taught me many things-Gratitude, patience and impatience, compassion and disregard, acceptance and non-acceptance-but mostly, the importance of self care.

This is oh so beautiful!

I am blessed to have two beautiful boys.

A teenager and an almost teenager-THEY also, have irreversibly changed who I am as a person-I guess if I’m truly honest, I never expected THAT to happen to the extent that it has. Witnessing their precious souls evolve is a truly humbling experience. At times, the requirement for endless selflessness can render resentment with the consequential guilt imposing an unnerving vulnerability-and then, just like that, everything changes as they flee into the depths of their own lives.

-until the day I die they will be my greatest achievement.

My husband-I love you more than all the grains of sand, on all the beaches in the world, to the power of ten, multiplied by infinity-Thank you for saving me.

And now that I’ve made this sound like an obituary, I may as well add a confession-am I in Church today?-I mean seriously!

๐Ÿ™

I would like to take this opportunity to confess the following:

This is roughly my sixth attempt at an About Page since my Blogs Birth!

I have written some total garbage-on more than one occasion, but now, I am confident and proud, that I have finally found the courage to be me.

I would love to inspire you to do the same.

Be brave, be imperfect, be honest, be raw, be vulnerable, be controversial-lean over the precipice and challenge your limits.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to reading your blogs.

Warmly,

Nicole

      1. Simply the best! I’ve only had Labs as canine companions my entire life. I’m hooked on and committed to the breed. Presently I have two, Logan and Bailey, soon to be 7 and 5 respectively. Both are rescues. A great day returned, Nicole.

Thanks for stopping by Nicole and following my blog.” Be brave, be imperfect, be honest, be raw, be vulnerable, be controversial-lean over the precipice and challenge your limits,” is what I write about in my poems.
