And the waves tell the firm coast: ‘Everything will be fulfilled
— Pablo Neruda's Ode to Hope
If exposure is essential, still more so is the reflection. Insight doesn’t happen often on the click of the moment, like a lucky snapshot, but comes in its own time and more slowly and from nowhere but within.
— Eudora Welty

Heal.Eat.Love is a blog about health, healing, food and love. On a weekly basis, I will publish informative, bite-sized articles to motivate your spirit and nourish your curiosity. 

I decided to start this blog to bring together my love for writing and health. Here is my short bio - I am in my mid-30s. I have thick curly hair, dimples and a German Shorthaired Pointer. I love kites, olives, coffee beans and traveling. I have two bachelor degrees - one in journalism and the other in nursing from the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing.  

In May, I started working as a registered nurse on a cardiac surgery unit at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. In August, I am going back to JHU to start working towards a Master's Degree in nursing to become an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. 

As my journey in medicine and healthcare continues, I hope to share with you my discoveries and observations as a nurse working at one of the most respected hospitals in the world. I hope you will follow along on my journey.
