Step Away From Your Battles..

Everybody needs a night of escape. That method of escape is different for everyone. Maybe it is to choose a weekend to sleep in; or purchasing a new outfit. I love to be inspired and I love to be around people who feel the same way. Darius Rucker is an incredibly encouraging and inspirational song writer. I recently saw him in concert and I can honestly say that I gained much more enjoyment from the experience than I ever have from buying a new outfit. A friend and I were both listening to the incredible lyrics that were seemingly speaking directly to us. It was joyful. There is something awesome about an arena being filled with thousands of people who are all unified in their desire to listen to the joyful music of an inspirational artist. I truly feel music.

I believe that as I have gotten older, I am learning that there are songs that speak to almost every life event. I know I truly listen to music now. No longer is it just about the beats. I believe there is a difference between hearing and listening. I love listening to an inspirational artist and realizing that I am humming the music throughout the day. I would love to hear from who else has a favorite artist that helps them to feel inspired. In the car the other day, the song, “I Want to be Somebody” began playing seemingly at the perfect time. It was right when I needed a bit of further solidification regarding my purpose. I know that while there are many people who are in sales; my position is to support and to help others who are going through there own medical issues.

While I am not a psychologist, I do bring first hand experience to the table. While most patients welcome me into their rooms once they have heard my story; there are always a few who are in pain and want nothing to do with the idea of somebody offering support. What I have to remind myself of is that people are different and sometimes the fact that they are not welcoming may have more to do with their state of mind than the job that I am doing. I would love to hear from any who are familiar with a business that relates to people. As always I thank you very much.



  1. Music is extremely inspiring, its funny how a song can have a different meaning based on the person and their mindset when listening to it. Music has a way of bringing you back to good times in your life. I love it when I hear a song on the radio that reminds me of a great time in my life, and I can just listen to that song and be transported back in time! You are an inspiring person Noelle and should not need solidification in your purpose because you are living proof that anything is possible. Your patients are lucky to have someone like you to look up to and be inspired by! I loved reading your story and hearing about the work your doing by helping those by sharing where you've been! Have you ever thought about going national and helping patients in other parts of the country...your story would be an inspiration to all those affected!

  2. Josh,
    Music is incredible in that way; it truly says different things to different people. I thank you for your flattering comments. I hope that the patients that I visit with share the same experience and views. I have at a time or two dreamed of going national, but then I thankfully got a position with a New Jersey based health care organization. I have grown into the wonderful culture that is this organization. Thank you very much for your comment and I would appreciate if every person who has contributed to my blog could pass the web address on to others.
    Thank You,
