Essential Worker: Essentially Protected During Pandemic/The Vital Power Of Spirit

When I entered into the area of health care professionally six and a half years ago a long-term dedication within the field was never my intention. Health care wasn’t a passion of mine and it still isn’t.

As a caregiver, I knew that I’d always have a job and never be out of work for any long period of time, and I was correct. So, it was a great back up gig and I am excellent at what I can do. After all, I do have over twenty years of total experience aside from having learned certain medical procedures through being trained and certified/licensed for the six years in which I have.

Health Care is an important occupation when one is responsible for the personal welfare of an ill or dependent individual who needs specific care or attention.

I’ve done and dealt with practically most all kind of patients/clients with all types of requirements. I’ve had to administer medication, take blood pressure, prepare and change ostomy bags, monitor blood sugar and insulin injections, care for hospice, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s/dementia, stroke, blind, deaf, amputated, psychiatric and etc.…. The list just goes on. I’ve worked in hospitals, assisted living facilities, and within residential homes.

I’ve even had to travel out of my way at times but the experience was good and I had received good worthwhile pay.

Fortunately, I haven’t had to be out there within the health care field now during this Corona Virus episode, even though I was ready willing and able to work for the main reason of earning the income that I am use to making, regardless of the pandemic.

This virus doesn’t scare me, yet the universe doesn’t want me out there constantly within that particular environment for my overall well-being. It’s like one not permitting their beloved child to go walk through a fire even if they wouldn’t possibly get burned. The universe doesn’t even want me feeling the heat or inhaling smoke-even though I can handle the flames, and I honor and respect the “power of spirit” with much regard and appreciation.

Soap And Water

Physical cleanliness is just as important as maintaining a spiritual cleanliness, I say.

Something I found hilarious today when I opened up one of my emails. It was a written notice from one of my places of employment and what was so coincidental was that I just recently wrote a post in regard to people, bodily odor, and washing, especially when going to a work environment.

Here is the email and after will be a posting and link to the post I had already wrote in general:

Team Members,

Personal Hygiene has become an issue for some or our employees. We have had several team member complain about body odor from other team membere and are refusing to ride in company vehicles due to this issue. Management understand that with the warmer weather sweating will cause an issue but that is still not an excuse. If needed, management will personally speak to individuals.

As a Reminder:

PERSONAL HYGIENE: All employees are expected to maintain their personal hygiene. Our hygiene should not offend our customers and fellow employees. The use of soap, water, deodorant and clean uniforms will help to prevent this.

Working Woman By Miss LaToya

Personal hygiene is very important.

Everyone should regularly aim to keep their bodies fresh and clean, although, not everybody acquires or desires to do so.

I love a pleasant steaming hot shower, the firm beading sprays of soothing waters are therapeutic and rejuvenating, it feels good to thoroughly wash and rinse off mental and physical tension as well as away all of the excess of oils, sweat, and dirt in which we accumulate.

It’s a mental problem to constantly hesitate to wash, considering the fact how beneficial the overall effects of a scrub, soak, and spray, have on our health and wellbeing.

Some individuals are not even cleaning themselves properly by reaching and carefully scouring their folded and private areas.

It’s necessary to get into creases where most odors get trapped into through bacteria.

It’s nothing to be embarrassed about we all will stink if we don’t continue to wash…

We Are Who We Are

At work this morning a client of mine inquired to me “Why are you always so happy?”

 I asked her if she’d prefer that I’d be sullen or gloomy?

A lot of people are stressed on their jobs I never feel that sort of tension or strain while I’m engaging in my tasks and dealing with other individuals. If anything, I use my occupations as an outlet or an adventure especially when I enjoy what I do.

Of course, work sometimes includes demands and inconvenience but in the end its worth the efforts that I venture towards.

By nature I’ve always been a bubbly/high-spirited person others have also described me as being animated, lively and full of life and sometimes, excitement. Even during times of tribulation I manage to naturally keep my composure and upbeat attitude.

When we have positive energy surrounding us and we’re around good vibration it only enhances the mood to bring out the best within us and that is a very healthy and rewarding sense of contentment and pleasure.

I’m also fiery and some will mistake that passion for anger when its just the essence of my inborn force and drive. Sure I can be vicious when I get heated but for the most part I’m a very strong-willed, energetic, and determined person I can’t help it that is just who I am and who I have always been, and I will always continue to be that way without apology.
