2013-11-25 14.00.12 HDRSometimes 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“.

Good advice.
