Roots or Branches

Roots or Branches

An old friend commented to me, "You travel nurse?  Don’t you like putting down roots?" 

It bothered me for several days, and I found myself contemplating it several times.  These are my thoughts. 

I have roots! They are where my family are. They are buried deep and are the foundation of my life.  It is just that my branches yearn to grow further.  They crave new experiences in nursing.  They desire knowledge.  The hunger for prestigious hospitals and new technology.  My nurse branches desire to spread and grow touching the lives of patients across the country.  It may be different from what you choose to do, but it’s my path, and I am excited to see where it will take me.
