Level Up

I am not going to talk about the current state of affairs or the lurking evil that is after every soul on this planet. I will say and have said…get off of this frequency! Turn off the news, stop looking at social media, take off your mask and get some fresh air. Take your dog for a walk, pet your cat, hug your kid, call an old friend, go for a walk in nature. Do something that brings you joy and then do it again, and again, and again. Getting off my soapbox now….

It’s been pretty uneventful the last couple of days. The most exciting thing was the brief twenty minutes of clear sky this morning. There were some pretty big shelf clouds that turned bright pink for a bit. I’m glad I took the time to stop and pull out my camera, that always brings me joy and there hasn’t been much of a call for it lately.

My last patient of the day has a condo in Hawaii and he shared some of his sunrise/sunset pictures with me and they were stunning. I think he and his wife travel a lot because he had some amazing photos from all over. We had a nice chat, he is also ready to ditch these masks…

When I was taking the work to the back I came to a realization and while it may be a “duh” for most…it gave me a new goal. I need a change of scenery…stat! The cloudy, dreary, cold and stark scenery has it’s moments but this Girl needs the sun. I don’t even care if it’s cold…I just need the sun! I’m not sure how I can accomplish this because of stupid Covid but I will find a way.

I had another realization today…I was adjusting a pair of glasses for a patient and while I was adjusting we were talking. He was on the way to pick up his dad who was has cancer and recently decided that he didn’t want to fight anymore. He took a leave from work to bring his dad home to die. He told me about a few of the things he had planned and they were beautiful. He is creating a special environment for his dad to pass over.  When he left I went into Big K’s office and told her “I almost started crying with this patient when we were talking, I need to find a way to block this stuff out.” Her words were “no you don’t, that’s part of what makes you you. You need to find a way to process it better.” That’s a different way to look at it. Something else I need to work on…

Personal growth is a never ending challenge…thank goodness. What is life without growth….Zia
