There is a whole lot to be said about Service. When I say service, I mean serving other people.
This morning, I woke up to a chain of events that were beyond my control and that really really upset me. It was so hard to get out and see patients today, especially given the fact that I almost had to cancel them because of these chain of events. However, I did.
I completely forgot how helping other people take me directly out of ego mind and grounds me to exactly where I need to be at the moment. It is such an amazing feeling to help people and focus on people’s health and healing and trying to help them get better. I forgot what an instant mood lifter this job is.
Today, I remembered those tough times when I was going through a painful divorce and how every patient I saw helped take me out of my little story, out of head instantly.
I truly believe that we were put on this earth to be of service to one another. This is one of the highest level of functioning a human being can achieve. I hate to sound corny, but it we are all connected and feel more connected when we are helping each other.
We really need each other and even though I didn’t feel like seeing patient’s today, I needed them more than they needed me.
