This is a picture of my go-to brownies…
What do brownies have to do with change, you may ask?
It all started back when I was an intern.
At the end of each internship rotation, I brought a tray of brownies to the hospital to thank the RDs for working with me. It was a simple gesture that showed that I appreciated their guidance/support/advice/tutelage over the past couple of weeks. During my internship, brownies symbolized change. They symbolized the ending of one rotation so another could begin. They were the last pieces of the transition puzzle, the last gesture before taking the next step in my dietetics journey.
This week, I will be baking twelve pans of brownies… one for each of the twelve units I have covered in my two hospitals.
Because, ladies and gentlemen, I have a new job.
