Hello everyone and welcome to day 2!
I will be honest my first day to the new year was a bit rough. Started off with a battle of wills with my parents and ended with a trip to hospital Emergency room.
I don't want to share too many details but suffice it to say I have been having symptoms which I and others find worrisome for a while and last night I decided I should really go and get it checked out pronto. If you are wondering, I don't know what is going on with these "symptoms" yet but I am scheduled for more tests and nothing super serious anyone can see yet which is an amazing sign.
So, I decided to not only give myself a fresh start and call yesterday a practice day but to highlight some kindness which relates to the ER today
Kindness is something which ultimately helps not only others but you too. For example, a guy last night was a being a jerk and I am pretty sure threatening the triage nurse and did he get served faster like he wanted? No, he got arrested. (I know my 1st day of 2020 was crazy!)
I personally decided that even though I was feeling like Sh*t on a stick I would be nice to the people who are just doing their job and it was a much better experience for me because of that and I like to think the people helping me appreciated it.
Being/ or feeling sick is a scary thing. So when people take the time to go out of their way to make someone feel better it's truly such a kind thing. This is what today's news story I found is about....
Synopsis: A girl from Minnesota USA has epilepsy. She is having an episode but she knows that what she is experiencing at that moment is not normal (it was actually kidney failure yikes!). She hops in an Uber and the driver not only calls her emergency contact listed on her phone to get someone to come help the girl but drives her to the ER and stays with her until her family arrives. Even offers to go and get the girl anything she needs.
When the girl family arrives the Uber driver dissapears and does not want to be thanked.
Full story here.
I just love this story! Sometimes you don't need to be thanked, just the act of knowing you did a good deed and genuinely helped people is enough.
If you have a rough day yesterday consider it a practice day. Be kind to yourself and start the year a kind way for yourself and others!
Love and Light to you all and until tomorrow.
