Gratitude – To be grateful, give thanks, show appreciation. For those of you who don’t know, I am forever optimistic. I always hope for the best. Even when the fecal matter hits the ventilation system, I try to find a positive spin and learn something.
There are so many things to be grateful for, which makes it hard to summarize in a post that is short and sweet. In an effort to avoid becoming #tldr (too long, didn’t read), I’ve made a short list. I encourage everyone to take a moment and reflect on the things in your life that you are grateful for.
Every single day.*Last but not least, I am grateful for relationships. Some days can be extraordinarily difficult. We have all had moments where we just want to throw in the towel and call it a day. It’s God, family, friends, colleagues, mentors, patients and even Twitter friends that make it all worth while.
Hope you’ve enjoyed reading my little bit about gratitude. Please take a moment and share what you are grateful for on Twitter using the hashtag #SurgGratitude and #SurgPostIts.
