Great Reminder & Motivator - Visiting Urgent Care

Monday, September 20, 2010

This morning, I helped a friend by taking him to Urgent Care. Of course, this took up most of the day and I had the chance to sit in different department's waiting rooms to witness a variety of maladies. It was a great refresher course in why maintaining a healthy lifestyle is SOOOO important. When my friend thanked me for my help, I felt like thanking him for the opportunity to remind myself that staying the course - no matter the bumps in the road - is certainly worth the ride.

Wishing all a happy Monday.

    No kidding!! I used to work as a nurse on a "tele floor". It's for people with heart problems. At least 95 percent of the patients there were there because they had eaten too much and exercised too little during the course of their lives. I always wished I could make my kids work there, if only for a few days. What an eye opener.

    It's a shame that we have to experience pain to be grateful for being well -- good lesson for us all.

    emoticon It is a bit of an eye opener! I have been having treatment for a sore foot and on Thursday I went into the bigger room where there were people with much worse issues than me!
Made me realize how fortunate I was that it was just a foot and not my whole leg!

    It is worthwhile to see the results of not taking care every once in a while just to shake us up isn't it?
