I am in my ninth year as a cancer patient, and even tho I've been nine years cancer free, it doesn't make the yearly check-up any more fun. There is always that possibility that it has returned. But instead of focusing on that, I choose to be very humble and thankful whenever I am here, because I am lucky enough to be here for the ninth year in a row. And I send a thought to those who aren't, and those who still fight to be here♥️ #fuckcancer#waitingroom
One of my good friends has picked me up from hospital and appointments A LOT over the years, today I got to start the long process of paying back by taking her to an appointment! Feels familiar but weird to be in a waiting room for someone else. #brightcoloursmakemehappy#friends#waitingroom
Always take a hand sewing or hand quilting project with you when you give people rides to the doctor. That way you are not wasting time idling in waiting rooms and it's easier to tune out the "negative Nellies" who want to tell you, in great detail, all about their medical horror stories including what a so called "quack" the awesome doctor is who is treating your loved ones with such care...who they are also waiting to see, I know, talk about irony! #waitingroom#handstitching#handquilting#throw#doctorsoffice#clevelandclinic#purple#LOVEclevelandclinicdoctors
Working in a hospital waiting room while Todd is in knee surgery today. Surgery is never an easy, fun thing and comes with stress, anxiety, recovery and general life disruption.
However, sitting in a waiting room surrounded by those who are supporting their people through some very difficult things creates perspective. The gratitude list begins to flow when perspective is embraced.
Surgery stinks but...thank goodness for treatment, for help with the kids this morning, for health insurance, for a kind doctor, for a safe home to return to...
When the uncomfortable, inconvenient pain of life strikes, you have a choice to either go down the dark worm hole of negativity, self-pity, "the world is against me" thoughts, or, reach hard for perspective and gratitude. Once you find it, hold on tight and let it guide you through the pain.
It's incredibly empowering to choose the perspective path and put victimhood to death. How can you take one step to reach for perspective and gratitude in your current life pain? How might you support someone in your life who is struggling to reach for perspective?
