    Okay, I am a nurse who is returning to nursing. Is it my dream career? Probably not, but I do miss the patients and I hate to give up on a career I worked so hard for.

    That being said, in my fantasy life, I am not Nurse, I am:

    1. A wedding planner
    2. A pastry chef/caterer
    3. A fashionista dress designer
    4. A major piddler moving from hobby to hobby each hour of the day.

    A girl can dream.
    What are you waiting for?! There's no reason you can't do at least 1 and 2 (and probably 3) followed by 4! Number 1 is an especially viable option.

    If you want to be something aside from a nurse then why are you wasting your time? Get to work doing what you want... life is short and you can do anything you want to do as long as your willing to put in the time and dedication required.

    I've actually done some catering and I love to cook. Unfortunately, doing these things on a small scale doesn't generate a lot of income and doing it on a bigger scale requires a full-time committment and some cash.

    I do make killer bagels and cakes, though. Maybe one day.....

    Thanks for the encouragement.
