Sometimes at the office I need a little giggle.
Sometimes I need inspiration.
I have begun a collection of refrigerator magnets for just such times.
It’s not a large collection. I have two.
Here they are.
The first was given to me by a patient who I helped with a pretty significant depression. I think it’s funny. It makes me smile.
I really enjoy people that can laugh at themselves. She was one of those people.
The second is a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson. I am not that literary. I just found this and really like it.
It speaks to my ideas about letting go of guilt. Of perfectionism.
I walk in my office kitchen first thing every morning. Put my lunch in the fridge. Most mornings I have rushed to get there. Arrived one or two minutes before needing to call the first patient back.
“You shall begin it serenely“. Maybe I have something on my mind in my own life. Maybe something left over from the last day’s patients.
I try to absorb that reminder. Serene. Take a big breath. Begin the day.
I see it as well as I end my day. Turning off the lights.
“Be done with it. You have done what you could“.
Just a little reading for today and hope you enjoyed! Please send on! And AS ALWAYS thanks for reading!
