Somehow I got lost and never did pursue a career in nursing. I guess my phobia of blood was too great so I purposefully pushed the idea of nursing out of the way.
Decades on I realise that I still want to make people feel better when they are ill or feeling down. I like to 'touch' people through my words nowadays though rather than with a 'hands on' approach.
I was unable to sleep for a while last night. I started to think about people who are on their own or in need of comfort or peace or just wanting a hug. I eventually drifted off to sleep whilst envisaging being swaddled in a soft, warm blanket, feeling protected and cocooned with love.
If you are feeling in need of a 'comfort blanket' then try to visualise one as I did and imagine its warmth and softness enveloping you. I found this technique very calming and it helped to slow down my anxious mind.
