I’m so happy you are here.
“Just a Nurse”
You’ve heard that right? Maybe you’ve even said it when someone asks you what you do.
But here’s the thing… YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE.
And so am I. Yes, I am a nurse; I’m also a mother, a wife, a daughter, a musician, an advocate, a speaker, an influencer, a yogi… the list goes on, but those are just the roles I play in this life.
Who I am is much much deeper than that.
Do you know who you are beyond the roles you play?
The journey of self excavation is life long and some will never even start to ask questions to find out who they authentically are under all the labels and descriptions and beliefs. But this is the ultimate quest of joy, passion, freedom and fulfillment, and one I am excited to be called to in my life. It’s an exploration of who I truly am and WHY I am here on this earth in this life in addition to the important roles I play.
Finding my light
In 2016 I decided I had hidden for long enough. I had worn the perfectionism, superior performance, and the martyr masks for too long and it was time to shed the armour and face my fears. From as early as my teenage years I had developed the beliefs that my value and my worth was based on my ability to perfectly perform and that asking for help was a weakness. I created this belief and lived it like it was the truth. Anything short of perfect would open a door for the world to see my flaws.
Sound familiar? Know any nurses who fit this bill?
It was exhausting and empty.
Coming out of this hiding was terrifying. It involved me taking a long look in the mirror and confronting my past, including my traumas, my beliefs, my fears, and mostly my years of buried and stuck emotions. But, under all of the fear and self doubt what I’ve found is my light, the truest essence of the powerful being that I am. And now that I have assumed my rightful position as the leading guide of my life, nothing seems impossible. Opportunities seem limitless. Failure is an inevitability and I don’t fear it anymore. I am in control. I run this ship of my life and it’s up to me to steer it in the right directions. I don’t believe I need to BE perfect, because I believe I AM perfect, with all my flaws and fuck ups and highly sensitive & emotional personality. All traits I used to be ashamed of and believed made me less than, weak, and worthless, that I now embrace and love as parts of what make me, me. Living full self acceptance and authentic truth has allowed me to dropped my armor and my masks and find the freedom I had been craving.
What you see is what you get so hang on tight because I’m pretty freakin awesome.
“Before joining the Nurse Rx Program with Sandra I didn’t know I was numbing and blocking my pain. I was pushing through and ignoring my emotions out of pride. I was very skeptical starting out but knew I had to do something different and this program was more helpful than anything else I’ve done. So much acceptance, understanding, coming together and growth, Sandra is amazing and wonderful.”
