Over this Thanksgiving Holiday I hope you have had the time to stop and reflect on all you are grateful for in your life.
With the news of unrest around the world, we can sometimes forget to be grateful and appreciate the things that make our lives happy and peaceful.
For me, it is the little things that bring joy to my life. Having Thanksgiving dinner with friends, welcoming a new baby into the family, getting back into the pool after a week of being away, and hearing from a friend who I have not heard from in a while and making plans to have breakfast with her while she is in town for the holiday.
These are just a few of the things that have brightened my life this past week and help me realize that life is good.
Reflecting on the positive aspects of our lives is important for our mental health and for our overall wellbeing, so please take a few minutes this weekend to stop, to reflect and to enjoy the little things that bring joy to your life.
I will be back next week with a new post for Nurse Advocate. If you want to review some of the older posts, please feel free to click on Nurse Advocate and scroll down to the Blog Archives. There you will find posts from July 2015 when Nurse Advocate was first introduced.
In closing, I want to thank everyone who has made a comment on posts or who has sent me suggestions for new topics over the past few months. It has been gratifying to know that the information shared is useful and is making a difference in the lives of patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals.
Have a good weekend!
