It's been one of those days. Actually, one of those weeks.
You know, the "go, go, go!" kind. Truthfully, it's been rather exhausting.
Yet, just a little bit ago, a few of my patients asked me to sit down and enjoy the sunshine with them. So I did.
Those few minutes were amazing.
For you other introverts out there, don't forget to recharge. It's amazing what a couple of minutes of sunshine and mindfulness can do to boost your spirit. Let's continue to work hard but not forget to enjoy the moment and take care of ourselves as well. ❤️
Sundaze..far from a day of rest when you are a grad student 👩🎓 I give a lot of credit to my peers in the MSW program. Doing a field placement, class, papers & projects (outside of class), holding down a job.. it doesn't take a strengths-based perspective to realize how strong these individuals are. This field is definately under-recognized for how hard they work..not to mention the actual work we are doing is emotionally draining. Social workers deserve more than a month of celebration, but we'll take it 🙋🏼 #socialworkmonth2018#socialwork#wcupa#msw#gradschool#almostthere#thankful#passion#purpose#march#inspired#motivation
In addition to all of our great speakers, we were also blessed to have the founder of Nigerian Women Against Violence (NWAV), Ms. Helen Bakob. "Auntie Helen," as she is affectionately called, is pictured here in the long orange and brown dress.
NWAV is an organization that helps women and children of violence, including those affected by Boko Haram. The women are empowered to sew beautiful dresses and outfits, and start their own business. That is definitely a cause that we can stand behind!
To learn more about NWAV and find out how you can get involved, please visit their Facebook page or their website,
